“Kalea Strong” Fundraiser All Week!

Hello Mountain Lions!

Come support one of our very own Kinder Cubs Kalea Ramos and family this week by purchasing a “Kalea Strong” bracelet!

Kalea is a sweet, vibrant, funny and energetic Kindergartner from Mrs. Bernstein’s class that was diagnosed with Leukemia on October 22, 2017.  She has an extremely rare form called “Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia” (also known as MPAL) which represents only 5% of Leukemia cases.  It is very difficult to treat due to its rarity.. Kalea has already endured a lot for a little one but is holding strong. Kalea is undergoing treatment at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego and has completed several rounds of chemo. Treatment is likely to extend beyond two years and will likely include a bone marrow transplant. As you can imagine this has been a very stressful time for her family.

Kalea has two siblings (currently at Salt Creek) and two loving parents (Mike and Angie) that have taken much time away from work to be with Kalea during her stay at Rady’s. We would like to help ease a little of their financial worry so they can focus on Kalea’s health.

Tuesday 11/28 through Thursday 11/30 we will be selling bracelets in support of Kalea before and after school. The bracelets are purple (Kalea’s favorite color) with pink writing. Gift donations for these Bracelets will be $5 (cash only). 100% of proceeds will be given to Kalea’s family. Please help us by purchasing and wearing a “Kalea Strong” bracelet to show your support.

We will also be tying purple ribbons around the school to show Kalea how much support she has within her Salt Creek family. Keep an eye out for other events that we will be hosting to show our support.

Kalea also has a Go Fund Me page:

Entrepreneur Academy Participant List Posted Tomorrow

This year’s interest list for the Entrepreneur Academy was higher than usual.  Although we are excited to see so many students eager to participate, we cannot accept all applicants due to space and management.  Applications were numbered in the order they were received at the front office, and we extended the limit to the first 57 applicants.  Names of those who were accepted on a first come, first served basis will be posted in the front office window by mid-morning tomorrow.  Thanks for understanding.  This high interest will help us when planning for future academies.  We look forward to a great program!

Plan for Excessive Heat

Due to extreme heat, students will be in the Multipurpose to watch a movie in lieu of outdoor recess – this is MANDATORY for today.   As we continue to experience hot weather, please ensure that your child stays hydrated (they can bring a water bottle to school) and wears loose, comfortable clothing.  In addition, P.E. activities will be modified or held indoors.

Entrepreneur Academy starts October 30th!

All interested 4th, 5th, and 6th graders – sign up for our Entrepreneur Academy this year!  Classes start October 30th and are held from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in the MPR.   In this project-based experience, you will learn the basics of starting your own business and even manufacture and sell your goods at our Entrepreneur Fair on Dec. 7th!  The first 50 4th-6th grade students to apply will be accepted.  Please turn in signed forms to the front office ASAP.  Thanks!
