Get Your Flu Shot Now!
Walgreens, CVS, Safeway, and your local health clinic are offering flu shots, usually on a walk-in basis. With most kinds of health insurance, flu shots are free. Even without insurance, they are inexpensive. Do it now, before the worst of the flu season starts! Flu shots really work - you might still get the flu, but you'll be a little sick for a couple days instead of out miserable for a week.
Want a quick and easy volunteer job?
If you can spare a half hour at the beginning of the school day on Mondays (8:45am-9:15am) ...come be the superstar in the office. We just need a little help signing in tardy students (we'll train you).You choose your day/days! All and any help is appreciated.
Winter Concert, Dec. 11, 6:00 pm
Pacific School's winter concert on Wednesday, December 11, will feature Kindergarten (IS and 5-day) and First-Second grade (5-day only) students, and all Chorus students. (Older students will perform during the spring concert.) Please have students who will be performing arrive in festive holiday attire by 5:45 and report to the multi-use room. The concert will start at 6:00 p.m. in the multi-use room and last approximately 45 minutes. The students have been working very hard on their songs and music, and it is very important that all students are present at the concert. We look forward to seeing you there!

Important Information about the 2020 Census - Jobs Available
The census is very important to Pacific Elementary, as well as to the community as a whole. An accurate count could result in tens of thousands of dollars in annual funding that we don't currently receive. There are many reasons that people don't participate in the census, but many of those reasons can be mitigated by a census worker who is known in the community and trusted by the people who might otherwise avoid participating. If you or someone you know would like to help with the census, please see this information: English or Spanish
The company that makes the weather station (Ambient Weather) at the school has added a new service for viewing the information in a web page. It's called Ambientweather.net and has a large graphical display with no ads! Click here for the link!
