Weekly Updates

FoSA & You better together

Dear Short Avenue Friends & Families~

September is off to a great start. We are so lucky to be a part of  our wonderful school. Hope everyone is enjoying another long holiday weekend. Happy Rosh Hashanah!

First Dolphin Cafe was a hit! Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make this first Café of the year a success. An amazing $732 was made. Lets keep it going and make the next Café even better!

Our Annual Giving Drive is here! Don’t miss out on being part of making your child’s school year the best ever. No gimmicks, no wrapping paper or candy to buy, we are simply asking you to donate what you can do to help make Short Avenue the best it can be. Every penny donated is put right back into our kids’ education. Please Donate.


It is the return of Restaurant Nights! Our first one of the year is a dual deal. Sharkys and Yogurtland. Thursday September 13th. Make sure you sign in for every member of your party at Yogurtland. There will be a list at the register. We will not get the full donation if all names are not listed.

This Saturday the 15th is Beautification Day. Gather family, friends, and neighbors to help clean our campus, do some gardening and more.

Congratulations to the 25 Golden Ticket winners announced Friday who won books/posters.

LA App Challenge is open. Check it out here.
