Thank You

To the Students, staff, parents and community: 

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for your participation in our recent book drive. Your generosity was simply awesome! 

Last Thursday we delivered 6400 books in 133 boxes to the children of Paradise, California and we cannot thank you enough for your spirit of giving. It is difficult to describe the devastation we saw in Paradise and yet the people we met had very positive attitudes and they are anxious to rebuild knowing it will take a very long time. Approximately 90% of the houses and 50% of the businesses burned but school goes on and the need for books is great. 

The children who had been attending Paradise Elementary are now going to school in nearby Oroville in a makeshift school to get them through the year. Since the middle school did not burn the hope is to have the children from Paradise Elementary attend school in the middle school next school year. 

The teachers from Paradise Elementary will go through the boxes of books this summer selecting ones appropriate for their particular grade level. Having firsthand knowledge of the quality of the books, we know they will be ecstatic when school starts next fall. 

Again, our sincere thanks for your help. 

Sincerely, Marcia and Steve Kaufman

A Note from our ptic president

Hello Parents and Teachers of SPE! School is drawing near and we at PIC want to invite everyone to join us in helping make our school the best it can be! We are hosting a poll to figure out when is the best time for us to have our once a month PIC meetings- to where it would best accommodate everyone. We want YOU to be there with us and possibly the 8 am on the first Tuesday of every month might not have been the best time frame for a lot of you.
What works best? We want to hear your opinion so that we can get more volunteers involved! 

The options so far are as follows:

8:00am the first Tuesday of every month (as it has been held in the past years)

9:00am once a month

5:30pm once a month (or we could do a meeting 2-3 times a year at this time frame to allow some to join who can't meet in the morning times.)
