“We have to have the mentality that we have to work for everything we’re going to get.”

-Stephen Curry


The LAST week of school?! Where did the last month go? I’ll tell you where! Teacher Appreciation week, Father Daughter Dance, Spring Book Fair, Open House, and Our Multicultural Event! Fourth grade has continued their efforts to raise funds for their 5th grade camp trip. Lots of behind the scenes volunteer time, that’s for sure!

The PFC has received some thank you cards for helping our teachers, administration, and support staff feel appreciated. Thank you, Dolores Escorcio! Your hard work, decisions on the fly, and dedication are greatly appreciated. Thank you to all the room parents and volunteers who made this week so special!

The Spring Book Fair had about $9,400 in sales! Great work Amanda Bentley Moses! Thanks for managing this fundraiser and thank you to all the volunteers and supporters who have helped raise funds for Hidden Valley’s reading incentive program.

This year’s Father Daughter (or special person) Dance was very well attended! There was great music, food, dancing, and pictures. Thank you to Jessica English for managing this community event and to her committee and volunteers for making sure it was an exciting, successful night.

Open house was an eventful night. The Book Fair was open and members of our 4th grade sold treats to benefit their 5th grade camp trip while families visited classrooms and Kate Howes sold spirit wear. During this night, we also voted on Site Council Members and PFC Board Members. Congratulations to all elected volunteers! Official results for your PFC Board will be announced at our PFC meeting on Tuesday, July 7th. (Be sure to tune in for our live Facebook feed.) Thank you to the chair of the election committee, Celeste Altus, and to the members of the election committee. Your time is greatly appreciated.

Sakura Barrientos coordinated her first Multicultural Event which was a HUGE hit! Thank you, Sakura! Thank you to the students who made flags and completed the passport activity, to the volunteers, potluck participants, and our community for coming out and taking advantage of this amazing evening!

June 6th at 6:30 pm in the Library we have our last PFC meeting of the school year and our 2nd budget meeting. We have Contra Costa Cinemas summer movie tickets available for sale in which 100% of the proceeds go to your PFC. Fill out an order form available in the office. Remember, All-In-One Day is on August, 17th! With that, I sign off for the summer. Thank you for your continued support and congratulations to all graduates, parents, teachers, and staff on a successful school year! Have a fun and safe summer.
