It’s time to remind students to start working on science fair projects. Final projects are due on January 14, which is only about six weeks away. With the holiday season coming up, please try to set aside time to work on the projects. Parents Night to view the science fair will be on Jan. 17th at 6:30-7:30. A few more judges are needed to help pick the projects that will represent Portola at the school district science fair. To get involved, please email email@example.com.
We need volunteers to help solicit auction items from local businesses for the Celebrate Portola event on Feb. 2, which will feature dinner, a silent auction and performance by Portola musicians. To get involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

A quick and easy way to help raise money to support school programs without costing you anything extra is to cut out the “Box Tops for Education” logos that you will find on the package of many consumer products. Each Box Top is usually worth 10 cents, and they can add up quickly. We have collection cans for Box Tops at the office and library.
