Walk-a-Thon & Carnival


The Walk-a-thon & Carnival is our last major PTA fundraiser for the 2016-17 school year. It takes place on Sunday October 16th from 12pm to 3:30pm. See the PTA Walk-a-thon page for more details. We hope to see you there!

Fundraising Programs

Through fundraising programs programs like Nob Hill Extra Credit, Target and eScrip, it’s now easier than ever to make a difference in our school community. Every little bit counts! Please see the fundraising programs that benefit our school.

Prepare Your Child's Emergency Kit

An important part of our school's Emergency Preparedness plan is for every child to have an Emergency Snack Kit each year.

Please fill a gallon zip lock bag with 3 non-perishable snacks, a sealed bottle of water, and perhaps a comfort item, then send the kit to school with your child to turn in. The kits will be kept together by class. See full details here.

If you have questions please contact Annie Cahoon, Principal, at (650) 802-8060.

Classroom Birthday Celebration Guidelines

1) No candy, soda or juice in class. This means no candy, soda or juice offered in class by teachers, by other students, or by parents.

2) Limiting sweet treats to once a month. We encourage educationally-appropriate celebrations of all kinds. If they include food, we would like these events to feature healthy food choices. Therefore, a maximum of only one item at one celebration a month may be in a desert/sugary category (fresh fruit is a great alternative!). Please remember that any foods containing trans fats can not be served or sold on any school campus per Ed Code.

3) If a child has a serious allergy to a food, that food should not be served in that student’s class that year. Children with potentially life-threatening allergies cannot be endangered by, or excluded from, shared classroom activities


Instead of food to celebrate your child’s special day, please consider non-food items such as a personalized gift to the classroom or school in the student’s name. Please see the letter from Principal Bob Sherman and a flyer with additional information.
