Principal's Message

November 14, 2019

Dear Park School Families,

I have such great news to share with you! Last week our Technology Department delivered a beautiful new Chromebook cart with thirty-six computers. The San Mateo-Foster City School District Education Foundation donated this incredible gift to our school. Each school in the district is receiving a cart. This helps our goal of one Chromebook for each student in 3rd-5th grades. Then in K-2nd grades, we would like to have one computer for every two students. With the money we raised from Charleston Wrap and other Pledge for Park donations, we will also be able to purchase another Chromebook cart. This is essential as they use computers throughout the day for learning.

The Book Fair is now open! Here is the schedule so you know when you can go shopping. There are many exciting books for our students to enjoy.

Thursday, Nov. 14th             2:55-4:00pm

Friday, Nov. 15th                    7:45-9:00am and 2:55-4:00pm

A lollipop went home on Tuesday with your students with the packet of information about the See’s Candies sales to build some excitement around selling the delicious candies and chocolates we all enjoy. This is also a good time of the year to purchase a small treat for your friends or coworkers. Every small box that costs $7.50 Park School earns 50% profit. We also earn 50% profit with the lollipops and peanut brittle. The other items we earn up to 30% profit. As a reminder, our See’s Candies sales makes it possible for our students to attend at least two field trips a year with the $500 buses paid for by the money we raised. It is such an important fundraiser!

·Tuesday, November 12th – Tuesday, November 26th – See’s Candies Sales
