PTA Sponsored Staff Room Refresh

Check out the photos of the refresh to the staff room here. We added new tables, lounge area, snack bar, and production area. We hope this gesture shows staff that we appreciate their hard work and dedication to our students.

Shade Structure

Our PTA has been working hard for the past several years to find a solution for the area between the MUR building and Library where our students currently eat lunch. That area is exposed to harsh weather and is in need of a shade structure. Our mission for the 2020-2021 year was to raise enough money to support the cost of this project. Our only fundraiser for the year, the Dolphin Dash was a huge success even though it was virtual. We were able to raise $25,000!

With the hard work of our PTA project committee and support of our school staff, we were able to get our project approved and funded by the Measure E Bond. We were projected to have it start soon and be completed by the end of 2022. However, construction delays for the middle school conversion have pushed our project back. We will update you as soon as we have a start date. We look forward to using the space not only for lunch but for other projects and events.

Additional Outdoor Lunch Tables

Thanks to the funds we raised during our 2020 Dolphin Dash, the PTA was able to purchase 5 additional lunch tables. This additional seating will greatly benefit the students.
