Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

San Pasqual Red Barn Arts hosts this year's 2nd annual dinner theater starring the Saints Choir and the Middle School Visual and Performing Arts Class. 
"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", June 2, 6:00 pm. Dinner to be served just before the show.

Travel back into ancient Egypt and relive the story of Joseph and his ability to interpret dreams, even those of a pharaoh! Sold by his brothers into slavery, taken to Egypt in chains and locked in prison, Joseph finds himself in front of Pharaoh interpreting a most  peculiar dream.  This musical is sure to delight with music written by Andrew Lloyd Weber and lyrics written by Tim Rice.

On May 24th, the girls of Girl Scout Troop 4491, led by Jennifer Brown, donated a butterfly garden to San Pasqual Union School.  Located within the SAGE school garden, the new butterfly garden has already attracted more pollinators to our school and is a welcome attraction to our growing school garden.  The girls of Troop 4491 have enjoyed quite the busy year.  In addition to completing their Bronze Service Project by building the butterfly garden, they also "bridged" by crossing the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco!  We commend these young ladies for their efforts and thank them for their service to San Pasqual Union School.

We will be collecting books for a book swap on 5/31 and 6/1 at the main gate and Kindergarten gate before and after school. Each student will receive a ticket per book that is collected.  On 6/2 and 6/3 the students may exchange their tickets for books in Trussell Hall before and after school.

Yearly Verification of Intent to Enroll 2016-2017

The California State Department of Education requires EACH student to have a CURRENT proof of residency on file at the school.  Every student needs to print, complete and return the attached form WITH an attached copy of proof of residency to our office. Instructions are included on the form.  However, current 8th students do not need to submit this form.

Remember, if you have more than one child attending, EACH student needs to turn in the completed form and document.
