“Who you gonna call?”

Many thanks to everyone who came out for the classroom rug cleaning this week! And to the Safeway on 15th for donating the Rug Doctor machines and supplies.

The work went quicker than we thought (perhaps because it was fueled by doughnuts), and we even got to gear up with this sweet Ghostbusters-style vacuum. The number of enthusiastic thank-yous we heard from teachers easily outnumbered the rugs that we cleaned.


Thank you, Union Church and Kakao Chocolate and Coffee, for your amazing library fund-raiser/book drive! Thanks to you and everyone you inspired, the event raised $2,700—well over our target goal of $2,000. We will be able to buy all the books on our library list and have money in reserve for future projects dedicated to the library.

A big, big THANK YOU to all of those who came out and either donated, gave their time to volunteer, or helped to set up the event!

Help get ready for the year!

On Sunday the 20th there is a work party to clean up the playground and field.

On Wednesday the 30th earlier in the day there is a work party to clean the area rugs that are in many classrooms.

On Wednesday the 30th later in the day there is the Back to School Picnic, and we need volunteers to help setup, cleanup, and if you are able, contribute food and drinks. If you might be able to organize this event, we are particularly eager to hear from you.
