DATES TO REMEMBER
Message from Mrs. Post….
I am still amazed with the Tesoro del Valle school spirit that I observed/experienced the past few weeks! The participation and turnout of parents and students for Book Fair, Restaurant Night, PTA Association meeting, PTA Membership drive, Jog-a-Thon sponsorships, etc. have been heart-warming to say the least. Thank you to each and every one who volunteers to support our school as well as all of those who participate and “write those checks”. This school year is off to a great start!
Congratulations to our Student Council Officers for the 2011-2012 school year. They are: Emmi Payne, President; Sydney Craigie, Vice-President; Anneliese Breidsprecher, Secretary; Treasurer, Sabrina Acosta; Andrew Nance, Parliamentarian; Shantanu Jhaveri, Sports Equipment Director. Each of the candidates (33 in all) did a marvelous job throughout the campaign. I am proud of each and every one of them. Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent election process. I encourage students who would like to pursue their leadership skills to try out to be a Student Council representative for their class.
This week is a full week of school with no minimum days. We officially begin Fall Break at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, September 30th. School wil not be in session the week of October 3-7. School resumes on Monday, October 10th at 8:15 a.m. I hope that students and teachers will enjoy a well- deserved week of vacation and want to wish all observers of Rosh Hashanah a blessed holiday. I am encouraging students to read for enjoyment over the break and possibly take some trips to museums, the library, etc. Have a safe and fun Fall Break!
Safety Reminder: Once again we’ve had some scary encounters in the parking lot at arrival and dismissal times. I encourage parents and students to use the crosswalks at the driveway to access the crosswalks to walk on the sidewalk as you enter and leave campus. Please, for the safety of your children, do not walk them through the parking lot.
Please remember to call the office before 9:00 a.m. the morning that your student will be absent from school. The State of California requires a specific reason, "not feeling well" or "sick" are not acceptable. Please let us know if your child has a cold, is vomiting, is out of town, etc.

Saugus School District has partnered up once again with the American Red Cross in the effort to save lives in our community! We are hosting a blood drive Monday, October 24th from 11:00am – 5:00pm in the Bramlett Room located at our District office - 24930 Avenue Stanford.
The need for blood is constant and is an ongoing effort. There is no substitute for blood; it can not be made and it can not be manufactured. The sole source comes from the generosity of donors like you. Your support will help us maintain a sufficient supply for our local community.
Each presenting donor will receive a $5 coupon for El Torito, 2 tickets to the Laugh Factory in Long Beach or Hollywood, and will be entered into a region wide drawing for a chance to win a $500 shopping spree gift card.

PTA MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
Catch the wave, join the PTA!!!
Aloha Tesoro Tigers, welcome back to another great year at Tesoro. Did you know that because of your collaborative efforts, the Tesoro PTA provides our school and your child with all types for programs, assemblies, field trips, family events and much more. Don’t get left out! Support our school’s programs and catch the wave, join the PTA. Everyone and anyone can join.
Mahalo (Thank You)
DISASTER PREPAREDNESS BINS
The PTA could use a little help from you to prepare your kids for an emergency. We are gathering supplies for our disaster bin and could use notepads and colored pencils. Many stores currently have these items on clearance for as low as 25 cents. These supplies will be used to give your children something to do as they face a potentially lengthy wait for parents or others you may have designated to pick them up from school. If you are able to help, please send the items in with your children clearly marked for the PTA Disaster Bin.
Keep those BoxTops coming in. Our contest ends on September 30th.
Another way to earn Box Tops: Start every online shopping trip at the Box Tops Marketplace. A great way for our school to earn BoxTops is to shop online through the BoxTops website. Go to boxtops4education.com to find over 100 of your favorite retailers such as Apple Store, Crate and Barrel and Target. Retailers will donate eBoxTops to our school with every qualifying $10 purchase. With the holidays quickly approaching, this will be an easy way to get some shopping done while doing something great for your school! You can also purchase gift cards from all of these stores. I'm hearing lots of people are buying Itunes gift cards this way!
