    BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES WISH LISTS
    The PTA asked each grade level to create a short list of items that would help start the year. Your teacher may have even more specific requests once the year is underway, but for now, here are some suggestions for each grade level. (Please see list at end of email.)
     

    GEF FUN RUN – VOLUNTEER URGENTLY NEEDED
    Each September the Goleta Unified School District holds the GEF 4-Miler and Fun Run where proceeds go directly to schools for Music and PE programs. Last year’s run raised $12,776 to support Music and Physical Education in Goleta schools.
    This year’s run is on Sunday, September 15th. A volunteer is needed to serve as the Brandon GEF Representative and to help organize the event and coordinate Brandon’s participation. If you are interested in helping, please contact Felicia Roggero immediately at froggero@37.60.239.169
     

    TRANSLATOR – VOLUNTEER NEEDED
    The PTA needs a volunteer to help with translating weekly newsletters and other materials into Spanish. If you can help, please contact Kate Ugoretz at ugoretz@cox.net
     

    FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
