Funding for General School Assistants (GSAs)

GSAs are integral to our school and fulfill a wide variety of roles. They work with teachers in the classroom to improve the adult-to-student ratio, help with small-group work, and provide 1-on-1 academic and/or social-emotional support to students. They also help keep our students safe by facilitating traffic during drop-off/pick-up and monitoring recess and lunchroom periods. Click here to meet our GSAs!

Programs & Curriculum Enrichment

After-school activities (e.g. Chess Club, Math Club), in-school presentations (e.g. ToyMaker, Pacific Science Center, Library Author Talks), STEM events (e.g. Egg Drop), Field Trips (e.g. Biztown), Picture Day, and Yearbook.

Events and activities

The PTSA hosts many fun events throughout the year to engage our school community, including Back-to-School events, Walk-a-thon, Field Day, Fifth Grade Activities, and more!
