This is an all-school fundraiser this year, to raise money for PVHSA, which funds all our digital learning programs, art programs, Project Cornerstone, etc.  (4th and 5th graders will earn funds towards science camp and/or school gift.)

Our poinsettias, which come from Hydrapoint in Watsonville, are GORGEOUS!!!  Please consider ordering one rather than buying (the same one!) from Costco!

Give yourself a break on dinner and earn some money for the school!   

5.  Square 1 Art - Upload art at

If you did not get a chance to turn in your Square 1 Art, you can still upload an entry and have a chance to order something with your child’s art on it! Upload your student’s art until November 9. Square 1 Art will do handle it the same way, except that no free stickers are sent for art that is uploaded.

Feel free to reply with any questions!
