Pacific Garden Update and Volunteers Needed!

The beautiful Pacific garden is open to grades 1-5 on Wednesdays during lunch recess. Our fall started with science lab lessons with Mrs. Connie Liu by planting corn seeds and radish seeds and learning about the two different ways to compost; with heat and with worms. We watched it all grow and successfully harvested corn and radishes in December, added our compost back to the garden beds and fertilized our plants with “worm tea” in January.

ASK: Asking Saves Kids

Parents ask all sorts of questions before their children visit other homes. Do you have any pets? Are there any food allergies? But one question can save a child’s life: “Is there an unlocked gun in the home?” Every day, 8 children and teens are unintentionally injured or killed due to “family fire” -- a shooting involving an improperly stored or misused gun found in the home. Please consider asking this question before your child visits a friend’s house, and always keep guns safely stored and away from kids. California law holds a person criminally liable for keeping a loaded firearm where he or she reasonably should know that a child is likely to gain access to it. (CA Penal Code §§ 25100 – 25200).  For more information, please visit
