Hard to believe we are in February. We hope you are enjoying a fantastic start to the New Year.
We want to thank our Craft Committee for reinventing our annual service-learning event, The Stewart Craft Fair. From our Students making the crafts and Middle School Volunteers packaging the Surprises, it was a genuinely inspiring display of community work. This year we broke a record! Our Stewart Family donated close to $3,500 to both The Inn and The Ronald McDonald House. Thank you to all Stewart Families. You are amazing!
On January 14, we had our joint elementary meeting with guest speakers, social workers Mrs. Vincent, school psychologists Dr. Tornincaso, Mrs. Saavedra, and Dr. Mendelson. The topic was Supporting the Social & Emotional Health of Families in the Era of Covid-19. If you missed the meeting, you could visit Mrs. Vincent’s page for her monthly newsletter at https://www.smore.com/sp1g3
February is the month for Parent University. This year all classes will be virtual and will take place over four nights. February 4, February 11, February 25, and March 3. Registration began on January 28. As always, this year has exciting topics. Please feel free to check out classes and register at www.gardencitypu.com
PARP is also going full steam. In January, we had a library visit for K-2 and grades 3-5. For the One School, One Book event, we had a virtual visit from Josh Funk, author of the “Dear Dragon.” For February, we have an excellent activity for PARP activity; GC Pen Pals! Please do not forget sure to sign up your children in K-5 to participate in this event.
February 10, please join us for our All Schools PTA meeting.
