News and Happenings for the week of Sept. 12-16
The days are filled with learning and fun this week! Please be sure to read the other information below. Each week I'll be sharing important things about The Family School. I don't want to bombard you all at once, so be sure to read and learn different things about who we are, how we do things and why we do them.

T-shirt orders due - Order forms are in the office
T-Shirts: For those of you who are returning, you may notice something different about our t-shirts! This year we have a theme at The Family School. "Tell me your story" is an idea that will flow through all our classes and be incorporated in lessons. We're adding that to the back of our shirts as a reminder that everyone has a story. We want to hear that story and learn to understand. Tell me your story!
Directories: Thank you families for turning in all paperwork so promptly! Our all school directories are finished and at the classrooms to be distributed. If you have more than one child at school, the directory is at the youngest child's classroom.
ASC Phone Number: There is now a cell phone for After School Care personnel. The phone number is 805-833-1007. The number is also printed on the cover of the directory for your convenience. If you need to reach ASC and no one is in the office, this is the number to call! We hope this is helpful to everyone.
eScrip: Do you know what eScrip is? Or how easy it is to sign up? Or how The Family School benefits? Let me tell you! It's an easy way to sign up with the credit card or debit card you use for grocery shopping (and other shopping). When you use that card, The Family School gets a percent of the amount you spend. Here is the link to sign up: https://secure.escrip.com/signup/index.jsp
Anyone can do this, not just our families here, but grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, all across the country there are grocery stores and restaurants that honor this.
After entering your information, you'll be given the opportunity to choose The Family School as the organization you support. We get 4% when you shop at El Rancho and New Frontiers using the credit or debit card you registered. There are other restaurants and stores to shop and we also get a percent.
It's easy! Go ahead, follow the link, and sign up.
Amazon Smile: Same thing. When you shop at Amazon, instead of going to the regular Amazon site, go to smile.amazon.com and choose Santa Ynez Valley Family School as the organization you support. Whenever you shop smile, The Family School benefits!
Last year we received $1,200.00 from these sources! Thank you everyone who uses this and helps us. Let's try to get even more this year. Sign up! If you're already signed up, make sure the credit card registered with eScrip is current (oops, I may have found out mine wasn't!) So, that's important. I'll be excited to see how much we can raise this year. Thank you everyone
Have a great week!
