5th Grade Traffic Duty

Traffic Duty

5th Grade is responsible for traffic duty in both December and June, because they are short months. This means each 5th grade family must sign up for both months. Please sign up for December using the link below. We will release the June sign up in May.

Sandwich Builders

November 4, 2022

5th and 2nd grades will be hosting the next Sandwich Builders! It is important more than ever for our SPA community to continue to support and give back to communities in need. We are returning to the “pre-pandemic” schedule for SB. This means that we will gather in the JCPC beginning at 6:00pm Friday evening to make sandwiches followed by assembly of the lunches around 6:45. Lunches will be delivered Saturday morning to the Union Rescue Mission downtown L.A. We always appreciate help driving the lunches, so please sign up if you are able. Please view the link for more information.
