    THE BUZZ...


    Dear Families,

    Thanks to all who attended the Earth@25 Birthday Party! It was lovely to see the mix of old and new faces. I was very touched by everyone's good cheer, memories, and creativity of the day.

    It’s election time for the Parent Association and the School Leadership Team (SLT). Please consider running for these important positions and notify Paulino, Marco, Jocelyn, or me by June 4. The election will take place on June 12.

    IMPORTANT: Please complete this short Family Involvement Survey: https://goo.gl/forms/Vvgz4yNGiBndmJPX2 Your answers will help the SLT plan for next year! Paper and online copies available. (1 per household)

    Several parents and Abbe have inaugurated a new committee called The Representation Team. Our goal is to hear from parents who are typically underrepresented in our community. We are excited to launch this new avenue of parent involvement at The Earth School. The group meets Mondays from 8:30 – 9:30 in Abbe’s office. If you are interested in learning more or participating, please come to a meeting or contact: Abbe, Nina (nina.burgan@aol.com), Ali (alexandria.quasar@gmail.com), or Tiffany (tiffany.toure@gmail.com).

    LOVE, Abbe

    THE BUZZ....

    May 6, 2018


    Dear Families,


    Thank you, thank you, thank you to the Spring Party and Auction organizers and to all who contributed to the event! As per our meeting with the DOE’s Chief Financial Officer, our budget will continue to depend on these fundraisers to make ends meet. We are immensely grateful to our Parent Association for their incredible work and commitment to benefit all children!

    Our next big event is NOT a fundraiser, it’s our… BIRTHDAY PARTY!!, but we do need your help. Most importantly, we hope to see you on Saturday from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the backyard to see old and new friends, share some food, and to celebrate a quarter century of this amazing school community. We are exited to welcome past faculty and principals, alumni and their families. Visit our website to sign up or on paper outside the office.

    Here’s how you can help:

    It’s a potluck. Share your family’s culture with a favorite recipe. (We got this!) Please sign up here to bring sides and salads.

    We need help decorating, setting up, serving, and cleaning up. Please sign up here.

    We need grill masters: YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!! Please sign up here.

    We need folks to sell Earth School merchandise (tee shirts, hats, etc.). Sign up here.

    Several parents and Abbe have inaugurated a new committee called The Representation Team. Our goal is to hear from parents who are typically underrepresented in our community. We are excited to launch this new avenue of parent involvement at The Earth School. If you are interested in learning more or participating, please come to a meeting or contact: Abbe, Nina (nina.burgan@aol.com), Ali (alexandria.quasar@gmail.com), or Tiffany (tiffany.toure@gmail.com).

    See you Saturday!

    LOVE, Abbe
