Pacific Crest Weekly Email — October 19, 2017

Dear Families,

Our Little Free Library needs some books! The 8th grade graduating class of 2016 donated a Little Free Library that is now in our courtyard area. Have you seen it? If you have any books that you want to share with our local community, please consider bringing them here.

Help us solve the mystery of the missing car seats! Many classes are asked to leave car seats along the front hallway to prepare for outing travel. Please try not to take a carseat that is not labeled with your family’s name. If you find one at home that is not yours, no problem, just drop it off in the front hallway. Finally, please make sure car seats are labeled with your child’s name! We have sharpies at the front desk.
