Restaurant Night

Planning next week's dinner menu? How about PIZZA for Tuesday night?

Pizza My Heart on El Monte is hosting our very first DINE FOR VARGAS night! That's right, you can feed your family AND raise funds for your school AT THE SAME TIME.

On Tuesday, September 17, from 4-9pm, go to Pizza My Heart at 1037 El Monte, order your food (dine in or take out) and as you pay, mention the school's name or (show them this flyer)!

They'll donate 30% of your purchase to Vargas.

Now here's an important part: Tell everyone you know about it! Coworkers, friends and family, your barber, your dentist, as long as they get their grub on at Pizza My Heart on El Camino during DINE FOR VARGAS hours, and they mention the school, we'll get 30% of their purchase donated too! So share this post!

(You can also participate in DINE FOR VARGAS by ordering delivery, but it can't be an online order.)

Otterpop Party PTA Drive

Popsicle Party! YAY!

Listen up! Here's the scoop!

Membership in the PTA is an important part of our school community, so our goal is 100% participation.

To sweeten the deal, if every class gets 80% participation, Principal Taylor said the whole school can have an OTTER POP party.

On top of that, for every class that gets 100% participation, everyone gets 1 extra minute of recess! (That’s 1 extra minute of recess per 100% class!)

Membership is $10/person. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors, librarians, police officers, and coworkers all count toward your class total.

Sponsorships are available for those with financial need (contact Beatriz Claas mclaas@mvwsd.org or Principal Taylor).

So don’t wait! Sign up now! Online at Totem jointotem.com/users/sign_up?show_email_reg=1 or download forms drive.google.com. Let’s help enrich our kids’ learning, support our teachers, and build our Golden Owls community!

If you’re already a member, thank you!
