February 3, 2008

The members of Livewire have been busy performing all over the Bay Area and are more than warmed up for our big event. You will not be disappointed. They will be performing from their 70’s song list but we may hear some surprises. Stay tuned!



Letter from Leslie Thornton

Dear Families,

Our Strawberry Night Fever Auction Night is only six days away now. So many have worked so hard to create this wonderful event. Thank you all so much for the amazing auction items that have been donated. This will be a wonderful event, whether you are interested in meeting new people and getting to know staff members, enjoying great music, meeting Rita Abrams and alumni, dancing, or seeing and bidding on auction items. Some items will be in a “Buy it now” category, so plan on coming early in the evening.

If you have never attended before, you should know that some will come in 70’s attire, but many will not, and all are welcome! Having RSVP’s by Wednesday will help us get an accurate count for food ordering. Auction items include opportunities to spend time with teachers and staff members, vacation opportunities, and everything in between. It is an amazing offering. Profits from this evening will make a big difference in each child’s school experience, funding hands on science in our wetlands, technology, adding to our kindergarten playground, an expanded homework club, and more.

To involve the students, Friday will be a Disco Day as well. Students are encouraged to dress up, and we will have disco music at lunch for our weekly dance party. Students will all be given Disco Ball necklaces this week to wear on Friday.

Friday morning will be an opportunity to come to coffee, preview auction items, and attend my monthly chat right after drop off in the multi-purpose room.

I hope to see all of you on Friday morning and Saturday night. Thank you so much for all you do for our students and school.

Strawberry Point from the Air

This photo was uncovered in the school library and unfortunately didn’t have any documentation attached to it. It could be from the 50’s, 60’s, or even 70’s from the styling of the cars. Check out the parking lot and absence of the play structure and additional buildings that currently house the library and EDS.

Graduating Class of 1970

February 1, 2008

Thanks to alumnus Jill Templeton (top row, 3rd from left), we were able to track down this photo of the class of 1969-70. More importantly I was able to get some insight to the origins of the “class name” given to Mr’s Kline’s class.
