Students are welcome to wear costumes for our annual Halloween event on Wednesday October 31st. Students should follow all dress rules with their costumes, no weapons or masks please. Parents and families are welcome to attend the parade at 10:10 a.m. All visitors must sign-in through the office and get a visitor badge. Please consider donating some baked goods to help thank the the El Cerrito High band (cookies are always a hit). We will also need a few volunteers to help the day run smooth. Contact Ally Crump if you can bring something or just help out at the parade.


Your child’s pledge envelopes went out in last Wednesday’s folders. Student are encouraged to ask friends, family members, and neighbors to pledge money for each lap completed, or a flat amount for participation in the Walk-a-Thon. 100% of the donations from this event help fund school-wide programs such as gardening, Youth in Arts, field trips and assemblies.
Our fundraising goal is $30 or more raised per student, but all amounts are most appreciated!
Please make sure that your child’s full name and their teacher’s name are on the envelope, and remind your child to wear comfortable shoes on Friday, as well as bring their envelopes (envelopes can also be brought before Walk-a-Thon day and handed to teachers for safekeeping until then). After the Walk-a-Thon, children bring the marked envelopes home again to collect funds from those who pledged.
If you have questions or need replacement information sheets and envelopes, please email Swee Peck.
VOLUNTEERS are still needed for 5th and TK/3rd grades this Friday, Oct 26. TK/3rd (11:05 – 11:30AM)

If you can help, please sign up using this link, then email Swee Peck. Volunteers will be marking laps, handing out water, and/or peeling mandarins.
