Mustang Store (February 26-28)

For three days in February, the PTA creates a “store” where students can exchange their PRIDE Slips, earned for good behavior, for a variety of fun and exciting prizes.  We are looking for volunteers to help set up the store on Friday, February 23, and then to staff the store (never on your own) Monday through Wednesday.  This is a great way to meet other involved parents and to enjoy the smiles of our students.  To sign up, you can email the Chairperson, Yuka Kawasaki at Yuka0924@hotmail.com or text her at 818-749-2203.  You can also sign up online at: https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/409044BACA629A1F94-47510452-mustang

Book Swap on March 1

On March 1, the SSPTA will be hosting our second book swap of the year for our second year in a row).  This is a great time to clean out your closets and cabinets of all those games your kids have outgrown or that they no longer play.  

Start now, and set aside your old books, used puzzles, and outgrown games.  Everything should be in good shape with all the necessary pieces.  We will be collecting items at the Recycling Drop-Off on February 23 (THIS FRIDAY), or you can bring them to the Book Swap event on March 1.

We will organize everything by age/reading level or genre.  Hopefully you’ll go home with something new (to you) to enjoy!

STEAM Night and Read Across America Family Event, March 1

The Book Swap is only one small piece of a really fun family event on Friday, March 1.  Our combined STEAM Night and Read Across America Family Event will include:

  • Fun engineering prototypes
  • Math games by Mathnasium
  • Art projects
  • Reading activities
  • FREE PIZZA
  • Raffles and great prizes
  • A book, game, and puzzle swap – bring ones you don’t want anymore!
  • And possibly a preview of the upcoming Scholastic Book Fair

There is no cost to this event, and it is always a good time.  We hope to see you all there!
