Principal’s Message
January 26, 2015

Greetings Del Sur Explorers!

We had a very successful Earthquake preparedness drill on Thursday. All of our safety teams on our site practice their specific roles in a disaster situation. We continue to refine our practices. Our students were phenomenal.

On behalf of our staff, I would like to thank the many families who attended Math Family Night Thursday evening. What an amazing event where families had a chance to engage in many fun and challenging math games. I would like to thank Mathnasium for their participation in this event once again.

Movie Night – Friday, January 30th, 6:30-8:30pm MPR

Student Council is hosting a movie night on Friday, January 30th, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm in the MPR.  We will be showing Despicable Me, which runs for 95 minutes.  Popcorn and water will be provided.  Remember to wear your PJ’s and bring blankets, or stuffed animals.  We hope to see you there!

Foundation News – The Green Envelope Campaign – Step it up for Steam!

Please support an enriched educational experience for every Explorer! The Del Sur Educational Foundation is in the midst of its Step Up for STEAM campaign. Through generous donations from Del Sur parents, the Foundation provides the following to our students: Impact teachers, music instruction, art instruction, and advanced technology.  The Green Envelope Campaign supports these incredible programs that would not be possible without private donations and sponsorships.  Donate any amount you feel comfortable with by filling the envelope with “green.”  Your donation is tax-deductible.

 

Please return your envelope to your child's teacher by Friday, 2/13.  We would like all envelopes to be returned, even if you are unable to make a donation.

 Ralphs Card Linking Contest The PTA is sponsoring a contest to see which class can get the most people to link their Ralphs card to Del Sur Elementary PTA.

All you need to do is bring in the bottom portion of your Ralphs receipt that says, “At your request, Ralphs is donating to Del Sur Elementary PTA”  Make sure to also write your child’s last name somewhere on the receipt so that we can keep track of the submissions. 

It's not too late - Please re-link your Ralph's card to Del Sur today! Earning over $12,000 last year, this income is vital to the "extras" your children enjoy, such as guest speakers, special projects, field trip off-sets, etc...

Re-link by:
1) Visiting 
http://www.ralphs.com to renew your contribution 
(Detailed step-by-step instructions with screen shots can be found on the PTA website 
http://delsurpta.org/programs/no-cost-fundraisers/linking-your-ralphs-card-online/
2) Taking the scanbar code from your "Free Fundraiser" flier with you on your next shopping trip, and give to the cashier at checkout.

See you on campus,
