Fall Pledge Drive Update

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Dear Eastshore Families, Teachers and Staff,

Thank you for participating in our recent Fall Pledge & Membership Drive!!  With your generous support, we have raised approximately $24,000, and currently have about 260 PTA members



As you can see from the chart, it is heating up to be a very close race in both the lower and upper grades.  If you still want to pledge, please turn in your pledge envelopes to your teacher or at the front office.  Pledges can still be made on-line. Again, our goal is 100% class participation, and no amount is too small to donate.  Also, you can still join the PTA for $10, and receive money saving coupons to Legoland, Aquarium of the Pacific, The Discovery Cube, and much more.  We look forward to announcing the class winners by the end of this week.       

As a reminder, we will be having our next General PTA Meeting this Thursday, October 6 @ 6:30pm in the MPR.  Please come and pick up your PTA membership card and envelopes with exclusive membership coupons. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.


Jean Wang

VP of Membership & Pledge

Reflections Art Contest

“What Is Your Story?”

“That’s the theme for the 2016-17 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Eastshore Reflections 2016-17 Flyer (1)


Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

  • Dance/choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
  • Music composition
  • Visual arts.

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round. Please review general entry rules.

State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:

  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention
  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and a $100 savings bond presented on stage at convention
  • An expense-paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to convention.”

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the Welcome Coffee! We all enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting several new families!

Don’t forget to join the PTA to get added to our email list and please consider pledging an amount to support our school financially.

We are excited to keep up this energy and are always looking for ways to keep everyone informed. I even went a little “old school” and got out a message board to get everyone’s attention on the first day. The board will be up for a few more Wednesdays till families get the PTA newsletter as part of their PTA membership.

Please feel free to say “hi” to me or any of our board members at drop-off or pick-up time. I hope to see you at the General PTA Meeting on September 8th!
