Dear Running Springs Families,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing break. I don’t know about you, but I feel like those 3 weeks went way too fast.

Kindness Crew
Thanks so much to everyone who has been part of the Kindness Crew this year. We love that you’re out spreading kindness in our community! If your child wants to join the Kindness Crew, they just have to do 3 random acts of kindness during the month, and submit them on the Kindness Crew form on our website by the end of the month. They’ll be rewarded with a certificate and will be featured on the school’s marquee! You can find the submission form and more info on the Kindness Crew page. Thank you so much to Golnaz R for volunteering to be the Kindness Crew chairperson this year! She’s doing an amazing job!

December Crafts
HUGE thank you to Kristin C and Bethany R for co-chairing this year’s December Crafts. It was time consuming to get the kits organized, but they got it done and got them distributed to everyone who ordered. Thank you, Kristin and Bethany!

Know Your States
It’s almost February. You know what that usually means: KNOW YOUR STATES! Last year, due to COVID, we had students do worksheets instead of the actual testing since we couldn’t be on campus to facilitate the tests. We’d like to try to do the event the normal way this year, so for now we’re going to postpone it and hopefully when we’re not in the midst of an outbreak, we can do Know Your States the real way. For now, we suggest you get started studying so you’re ready! Study guides are on the Know Your States page. The Know Your States test is open to all students!

UPDATE: Know Your States is happening as scheduled on February 1, 8, and 15! Time to start studying!

PTA Positions
Our PTA Nominating Committee has been formed. They will be putting together the new slate of officers for the 2022-2023 school year. There are many positions opening up and we would love to see new faces in our PTA. If you are interested in seeing what positions are available on the PTA Executive Board, please contact me as soon as possible so we can get you the appropriate information. Thank you in advance to all our committed parents for accepting these important positions.

Honorary Service Awards
Please take a moment to review the Honorary Service Award form on the website. We have so many parents who give so much not only to their children, but all the students at Running Springs. This award helps highlight and thank those outstanding individuals. Nominations can be submitted on the PTA website. Thank you to Sonie M for coordinating!

Yearbook
Thank you to everyone who has sent in photos for our yearbook! If you have any school-related photos you would like to submit, please email full/actual size images to our Yearbook staff at [email protected]. Please include your student’s grade, name, and teacher’s name. Also, if you haven’t yet ordered your yearbook, please DO IT NOW! Visit the Yearbook page to place your order ASAP.

PTA Meeting
Don’t forget our January PTA meeting will be on Thursday, January 13th at 8:45AM via Zoom. Please RSVP here so we can send you the link to attend. EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

Thank you so much to all of our amazing Executive Board members and Chairpersons for all you do for our school! And thank you so much to our Running Springs families for being patient with us as we navigate another unusual school year.

Stay healthy!
