* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

To ALL Las Lomitas Parents:

CALLING ALL TROOPS! We are in need of volunteers for several committee chairs for the 2014-15 school year. We currently are looking for a Hot Lunch Committee Co-Chair (we have one co-chair already), a Memory Book Committee Chair, and First Fridays (previously known as Fun Fridays). Please understand that volunteers are necessary to keep our programs successfully running. Without volunteers, we will have to cut back on our programs. I know that you all appreciate the Hot Lunch Program and all look forward to receiving the Year End Memory Book (we know your children do!) Time commitments are minimal and listed below but REMEMBER, we do this so that our children can have the best elementary experience possible:
  • Hot Lunch Co-chair - Responsible to be day chair for one day of the week, and work with other Hot Lunch Chair to direct all hot lunch needs (in relation to managing volunteers). Time to be at school: 11:40 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.
  • Hot Lunch Day Chairs - Great way to get together with friends and also see your children! 3 needed to help direct distribution of lunches, but also manage the days volunteers. Time to be at school: 11:40 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.
  • Memory Book Committee Chair - Think Project Management, managing the pieces of the memory book and ensuring that all gets completed according to schedule. Managing a team of 3 or 4 volunteers already in place. 
  • First Fridays - Originally Fun Fridays, we have scaled this need back to once per month. The lead volunteer has flexibility to create what works for you schedule wise. Options to have Fun Friday events on the black top/grassy area for kids either during morning recess or lunch time.
Please respond to immediately so we can ensure a happy summer for all, especially your fearless leaders attempting to ensure a successful 2014-15 school year!

Thank you,

Do you want to know more about how LLESD teachers are teaching the writing process? Do you want to know what the research says about learning to write? Do you want to know how you can provide writing support for your child at home?

Some of us work very hard fundraising for our children every year, however we miss opportunities to be trained to help our children in the same way our teachers are trained. I personally want to invite you all to the upcoming Writers' Workshop on Tuesday, June 17th from 6:00 7:30 p.m. to learn about how we can all be better teachers for our kids on their writing adventures. Columbia University Teachers College experts, Shanna Schwartz and Katie Even, will provide an overview of the components of Writers' Workshop. The PTA Board highly encourages you to attend this rare opportunity to be trained by some of the BEST writing trainers in our country. 

We hope that many of you will seize this rare opportunity and join us for this 90 minute training.

Year End Reminders from the Health Office

Please pick up any medications your student has stored in the main office.  All expired medications will be discarded and we cannot store medication over the summer.

If your student will require medication for the 2014-15 school year, prescription or over the counter, a new medication consent must be completed and signed by physician and parent and submitted with the medication in when school resumes.

Lice Checks
Please check your student for any signs of head lice before they return to school after Summer break.  Early detection of lice infestations through routine screening at home is the most effective way to reduce outbreaks. Please contact the Las Lomitas health office with any questions you may have about lice prevention, detection or treatment and the nurse can assist you.

For more information about head lice, please see "A Parent's Guide to Head Lice " published by the California Department of Public Health .

Nice Lice Advice - 75% of the mothers who bring their children into Honeycombers also have lice.  My four daughters had lice twice, but I never got them, even though the girls were sleeping with me from time to time and we snuggled at bedtime.  We've asked our customers and it seems like the most likely culprit in those cases where the mom gets lice is sharing combs or brushes.  It seems so easy to just grab your brush from your purse and run it through your little one's head... but try to resist the urge.  Keep your brush, comb and hair accessories high up out of children's reach, and invest in a brush for each child.  Even if lice does come into your life, hopefully it will skip you.  Brought to you by Honeycombers Lice Advice & Treatment Salon in downtown Menlo Park.  Come by to purchase all-natural lice prevention and treatment products to treat your children for lice yourself at home.  Or call 1.888.863.2005 to book an appointment to have your children checked, and if needed, treated for lice by our friendly Combers.  We offer appointments 7 days a week in our bright, clean salon or in the privacy of your own home.   Honeycombers - The Sweetest Way to be Treated

Ohlone Art Camp
Established 1997
Ohlone Art Camp started in June 1997 at Ohlone Elementary School but moved to my backyard studio during remodeling at the school in 2001.  I kept the name "Ohlone Art Camp" because I am sure that Ohlone Indians once lived in my neighborhood; I have found arrowheads, bones, and seashells in my yard!  


I believe in running a low-key, calm, and fun camp.  We create beautiful silk paintings, learn embroidery, mosaics, mask making and more.  I believe that there are no mistakes in art..if they want to paint a pink bluebird, it's fine with me! 


I have two wonderful dogs, Sugar and Ruby, a beautiful orange corn snake named Willy, and two Chinese Silkie chickens, Lucy and Sophie.  The vegetable garden is always in state of planting and young hands are welcome to help!


If your child wants to do some reading, they are welcome to find a spot and do so.  We will discuss one new word per day and find interesting subjects of conversation which in the past have ranged from King Tutankhamun to travels in Shanghai!  


Open for ages 5 and up and attendance is recommended for children who can maintain concentration on their projects.  Monday-Friday, $250 (9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.) $500 (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.).  For more information, visit us online or call Kristen Johnson (650) 493-4383 or (650) 799-0832 or email
