Your teachers—and gardens—need you!

Spring has sprung, and our teachers would LOVE to take their classes out for lessons in the gardens, but they can’t do it without a parent garden volunteer.
How can you help?
Join your teachers in the gardens on Fridays from 1 to 2:20 p.m. and watch your child’s love for nature grow.
Please save the date
Please join us at our garden work party from 10 a.m.  to 1 p.m. on March 11. We’ll be weeding, mulching, and having fun.

And We Ran

The Mira Vista Healthy Kid’s Fun Run was a great success! Every class from kindergarten to 8th grade participated, and fun was had by all!

So the run is over, but it’s not too late to submit contributions. The deadline to donate for the Fun Run has been extended through February 27. The website will continue to accept donations, and students can still bring in pledges to the classroom. All prizes for donations collected will be given out on February 28.

The Fun Run is a PTA fundraiser to help raise money for important programs such as  field trips, art, music, gardens, teacher grants, and so much more. We really appreciate your support!

Pajama Party Volunteers Needed

The Pajama Party is coming up on Thursday March 2nd! As ever, we need help to pull off this wonderful event. Please fill out the Google form linked here if you can volunteer to help out on the night.

We need people to work the refreshment table, sell book bags, organize the book exchange, read bedtime stories and of course set-up/clean-up.

Thanks for your support of the Pajama Party year after year!


We Run This
