Plan to join us for our upcoming Spring Fundraiser. Bring the family and your appetite to our Tri-Tip BBQ on Saturday, March 22 from 2:30pm – 5:00pm at the school. We will be set up for a traditional oak fired tri-tip BBQ with all of the fixings. Tickets are $10 each and $40 for a family meal. We will also have a 50/50 raffle going on with tickets for just $1.
If you can’t stick around and visit, plan to DRIVE-THRU the alley (on the west side of the school between 15th and 16th) and take your meals to go! Tickets are available from any Co-Op family, at the office in advance or at the door.
The BBQ is a great opportunity for new and old (even really old) families to get together and enjoy a great meal in support of our wonderful preschool. A portion of the proceeds from this event will also be donated to the Jana Carlson Memorial Fund. Hope to see you there!
The new year is off to a great start at PRCP! Thanks to all of our Pre-K families for cleaning and polishing the school to a bright shine at the Clean Up Day in January.

Thank you to everyone for all of your hard work on the Mixed Bags sale, it was a huge success! The school netted a $2195.00 profit thanks to your efforts. We could not have done it without you! All orders have been delivered to your student’s cubby. Please make sure that your order is complete and contact me ASAP with any questions or concerns: email@example.com or 234-3562.
Our next big fundraising event is just around the corner: our Annual Chili Cook-off is set for November 23 from 12-3pm. Keep an eye out for packets in your parent folders with all of the details. We will need 10 families to submit chili entries, and everyone else will need to work a shift at the event. Plus we will be having a silent auction and 50/50 raffle. This is a fun event for the whole family and offers a great opportunity to get to know each other. I can’t wait!
Welcome back to all of our returning and new families. Time is flying by – we are already into the second half of September and the year is off to a great start! So much has been done to get our school in top shape for the year. Our enrollment is up (our 2/4s classes are currently full and a waitlist has been started.) All of the teachers, students and families are excited for the year ahead.
Our fundraising efforts are underway. The Mixed Bags sale is on now until Sept 30. Each family received a packet in their folder with the complete details of the campaign. Sample bags are on display on the porch and an email was sent out that can be forwarded to friends and family. You can place orders with the hard copy form and write a check or order online at: www.mixedbagdesigns.com Our school ID is #135884. All orders must be submitted by Sept 30.
Don’t forget to download the PRCP GoodSearch toolbar (see the link on the left hand column of this page). It installs into your browser (IE/Firefox, no Safari yet) and provides a search box with PRCP designated as the organization to support. It will also notify you of GoodShop merchants that donate a portion of your online purchases back to our school. There is even the option to register debit/credit cards with their GoodDining program and earn more funds for our school when you dine at their participating merchants. You can find out all about it at their website. Bottom line, the individual sums may not be huge but they do add up over time. Our first year in this program our school received over $400!!
We can also earn easy money for our school through the Escrip program. Register your Vons Club Card and every time you shop a percentage of your total will be donated to PRCP. Its really that simple! You can register directly online or send us your club card number and phone number associated with it and we can enter it for you. Again these funds are available to our school at no cost and very little effort and can really supplement our fundraising efforts if we all participate.
You can still order a PRCP t-shirt for your child and/or yourself. We would really like to have all students purchase a t-shirt so that during field trips we can quickly identify our group and also show off our school spirit. Youth shirts are $10 and Adults are $15. The order form is in the office. Please submit your orders with payment by Sept 30.
NEXT BOARD MEETING
The next meeting of the Board of Directors is Tuesday, October 1st at 1pm at the school. The Board meets monthly on the first Tuesday. All parents are welcome to attend.
