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.
Please 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.

KID FREE ZONE
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.
