Principal Search, Dollar Free Dress, Traffic Safety & PTO

Phoebe Hearst Principal Search:
Community input is critical in helping us find our next Phoebe Hearst Elementary School principal. We will provide our community with opportunities to help us identify characteristics for our new principal and inform the type of interview questions we’ll use in the process. Please click on the link for more information and how you can add feedback.

Dollar Free Dress Friday, May 6th:
Friday, May 6th is a dollar free dress Friday supporting children in Ukraine.  This Friday will be unique in that we are asking families to donate online rather than bringing money to school.  Here is the link to donate.  Thank you for supporting children in Ukraine. 

Traffic Safety:
May is Bike Month:

The Bicycle Bus starts on Monday! Every morning in May, we will ride from 35th and M St to Phoebe Hearst, leaving at 7:30am. Your rider or roller can join us anywhere along the route. We will do a practice ride this Sunday, leaving 35th and M St at 11am. We would love for your student to join us. If you think your family will be part of the Bicycle Bus, please fill out this form: 2022 Phoebe Hearst Bike Train – Google Forms

PTO Announcements:
Teacher Appreciation Week:
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2-May 6. This year, rather than orchestrating how families show thanks with schedules and specific tasks, we ask our families to show appreciation in their own individual way. There are so many creative ways to say thank you to your teacher. Here are a few ideas…

  • A homemade card, hand-drawn picture, or a letter
  • Flowers from your garden
  • Offer to bring their favorite coffee drink or snack
  • A video message from your kiddo
