You are invited to enjoy spaghetti dinner (prepared by one of our multi-talented teachers) at our STEAM and Parent Info Launch Wednesday, August 26 from 5:30 – 7:30pm.
We’ll learn about where we’re headed this year academically and finanacially, and how little things you can do will help make this a fantastic year in our quest to make Short Avenue the best neighborhood school on the west side. In addition to learning about the new STEAM (Science, Technology,Engineering, Art and Math) focus and our efforts towards full implementation this year, we’ll explore Shopping for Short and have volunteer registration to help with events and activities.

Pavilions Vons ClubCardsPlease bring shopping rewards grocery cards (Ralphs, Food4Less, Fresh & Easy, Bristol Farms, etc) to register for no cost fundraisers including eScrip, Ralphs, Box Tops, eLabels and more. Can’t find your card?  No problem, we can still sign you up.

We will also be raffling a $25 gift card for individuals who register for our no cost Shop for Short fundraisers and sign up for committees.

So that you can get the most out of our orientation, we request no children at this meeting.  If, however, you cannot make babysitting arrangements, we will have children supervised in a separate room watching a movie.

Congrats on a great first week!  We look forward to working together to provide the best learning experience for your children.
