No School this Friday and e-communication

Friday, October 16, 2009

Hello-

Just a reminder that this Friday, October 16 there is no school for our students. It is a training day for classified employees. The City of El Cerrito is offering a Friday Fun Day (open 7AM – 6PM) for those who would like child care. There is a half day option too and this is open to ALL students at Madera – not just those who do attend aftercare but it is first come first served basis. Stop in at the clubhouse for a flier and/or you can sign up at the El Cerrito Recreation Department on Moeser.

E-Communication

If we want to increase the use of electronic communication and less paper in the Friday folders – the PTA Google group can help but not unless folks are getting the messages. We currently have over 250 members but that is not enough given the size of our school community and the fact that some families have more than one member. It is not an super active group so there are not a lot of messages coming out and it is moderated by me.

Please ask a friend or two if they are members of the Madera PTA group (this is not the same as MaderaConnects which is a more informal
community forum) and if not – have them request to join here.

thanks!
