Come to the PPTG monthly meeting this week to hear an update on our 2011-2012 budget. The regular meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. Arrive at 6 p.m. if you'd like to join us for dinner—a healthy and delicious spread prepared by Ellen Oppenheimer and the students in her after-school cooking class.

On the agenda this month:

  • A review of the proposed PPTG budget for next year
  • A report from Ms. Costello on Peralta's budget and staffing
  • Updates on Saturday's giant yard sale, Peralta in Bloom planning, and the auction
  • A chance for you to ask questions or raise new issues

Remember: If you are part of Peralta, you are a member of the Peralta Parent Teacher Group!

We'll be offering freshly-brewed French Organic coffee and bagels w/cream cheese this Friday for donations.  A great way to warm yourself up and support PPTG! All items on the picnic table have been donated to Peralta, and we ask a small donation of one dollar for each.

All remaining bagels are donated for kids' snacks.

Please join us for coffee, bagels, and yes, lox, this Friday at drop-off. The bagel cart will be serving organic French Roast (courtesy of Urban Blend Cafe) at the Dana Street entrance for one dollar donation per item. First timers especially welcome!

Mine are. My cereals are topless & my trash bags are bottomless - but it was all for a good cause. Peralta.

Last week we submitted over 1500 box tops and bonus box top certificates for a total of $192. This brings our current earnings to around $200.

For those that think that this is not really all that much, just think: this is money that would have been thrown away or recycled. Would you take 2 $100 bills and throw them in the trash or recycling? (if, by chance, you answer yes to that question, my garbage can is open for you.)

Please keep clipping those boxtops, we are just under our halfway mark and we only have one more turn-in date at the end of February.

Remember to visit Boxtops Online and sign-up for their newsletter to learn even more ways to earn with boxtops:

  • Clip- Collect those boxtops (100s of items and more added every day - from Avery labels to Kleenex tissues). For you coupon clippers there are many coupons added every month to save while you save.
  • Shop the MarketPlace - Earn boxtops while you shop online. Multitask - work, shop, & earn $ for the school all at the same time.
  • Shop the ReadingRoom - If your making a purchase at Barnes & Noble, need some new Nook titles, purchase it through the reading room and earn boxtops.

Thank you and happy clipping.

-Deb French, Boxtops Coordinator

As the year winds down, we're squeezing in two coffee breaks after morning drop-off.

Take a few minutes to enjoy the Noah's bagels and the great French Roast Organic coffee donated by Peralta parent Sonia del Rio, of Oakland's Urban Blend on Wednesday, Dec. 8 and Thursday, Dec. 16. This time, the coffee will not run out!  If you have conferences in the morning, grab a coffee and bagel (for a small donation), and catch up on news with other Peralta families.
Anyone interested in helping with these events in 2011 should contact Daniel Brownstein.  Brewing Community is planned for the first and third Fridays of each month.
