Dear Short Avenue Families & Friends!

NEWS!

No School on Monday, President’s Day

Silent Auction

THE SILENT AUCTION IS SATURDAY APRIL 6TH.

We are gearing up for one of our biggest fundraisers, our annual Silent Auction. This year we are doing it differently, an adult only event cocktail party at a private home off campus with live music, delicious hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine. Because we are in a private home, we can only sell 150 tickets! So don’t delay in getting your tickets!

We Need Your Help!!

In order to make the auction a success, we need donations! Last year we raised $7152 and our goal this year is $10,000! You can help by asking your favorite camps, restaurants, hairdressers, bakeries, etc. for gift cards or merchandise. Do you have a vacation cabin in Big Bear? Do you have connections to tv show or sporting event tickets? All the donations are tax deductible. For more information on auction items needed or to help with the event, please contact Jessica Trockey jessicamtrockey@gmail.com.

Here are some the exciting auction items we have so far:

~$100 gift card for Fresh Brothers

~Dinner at BOA

~Jewelry by Hathi

~Gift card to PF Changs

~Bowlero Passes

~Gift Basket by Mindfulnest

5th Grade Student Art project for “Favorite Thing About Los Angeles” art contest.

Students Will Run To Support Our Marathoners

Did you know our own Ms. Reynolds, Ms. Chantarasompoth, and amazing mothers Caitlin Taylor and Tasha Dellagatta are all training for the LA Marathon on March 24th? We thought it would show great support to have our students each run around the school for the next 6 weeks and see if they as a group can log a collective total of 26.2 miles! Click here for more info in English and Spanish.

The Spring Carnival will be held on Saturday, May 4th on our playground. If you would like to help with the carnival this year please contact Caitlin Taylor (imcrary@yahoo.com) or Alexis Czyzewski (alexisczyzewski@yahoo.com) for more information.

FoSA & You better together

Week of February 10th, 2019

Dear Short Avenue Friends & Families

Our children have been very busy with all of the activities that FoSA funds like Planet Bravo (which costs $28,000), Spanish class (which costs $20,000), field trip busses (which cost $5000) and much more.  We can only fund all of these exciting and fun activities and classes for our children with your help.

Funding for these activities are done thru donations by you and by fundraising in the community. In order to guarantee that our children can have access to all of these great classes and activities we need to raise another $28,000. Here are a few of the great fundraising opportunities and events that are coming up.
