Good Eggs Fundraiser

Our school has the opportunity to work with Good Eggs on a two month fundraiser! GE is a grocery delivery service that works directly with farmers in CA and delivers to your door. They also have meal kits for those of you that may be too busy to cook!

Here’s how it works: During the months of October and November, 5% of sales using our code JBGE19 will go directly to our school.

How do families enroll? To enroll in the fundraiser, parents need to visit schools.goodeggs.com and enter the code JBGE19 before placing an order. You only need to do this once, and then 5% will be donated back for all subsequent orders from October 1 through November 30. Plus, new customers will receive $20 off their first order!

The more people we sign up, the more money we can raise for PTA programs, so please pass the code JBGE19 along to friends, neighbors, or anyone who may be interested, even if they already use Good Eggs. The more the merrier!

Walk and Roll to School Day

Walk and Roll to School Day is this Monday, Oct 7th.

There will be lunchtime activities, prizes, and games!

Lunchtime activities include a raffle, chalk footprints on the blacktop indicating if you walked or rolled to school; a poster of the area around our school (like the one outside the School Office) that children will put a star on to indicate where they traveled from to get to school, and the BIKE BLENDER!  Students will be invited to add fruit to the blender and get their smoothies to blend by riding the bike!
