“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.

Shoe Drive

Salt Creek is currently participating in a Shoe Drive to support developing nations in Africa. The Shoe Drive will go until Thursday, November 9th. Please send any new, used, or gently worn shoes to school with your child to turn into their teacher. One primary class and one upper grade classroom will receive a Jamba Juice party for most pairs of shoes donated!

Original Art-works due Tuesday, Nov 7th

Hello Salt Creek Families,

Our teachers and students have been busy creating fun and unique art masterpieces over the past few weeks. Those masterpieces were sent home today along with a product pamphlet and order form. Your child’s artwork can be placed on a variety of items ranging from tote bags, to mugs, to ornaments, or even pillowcases. These items make great gifts as well as keepsakes. A portion of the proceeds from the orders received are given back to our school to support many programs and activities.

If you would like to purchase any of the customized items with your child’s artwork, please complete the order form and return it along with payment & the student’s artwork to the school by TUESDAY, November 7th. (The flyer that went home listed the incorrect day of the week). Any items ordered will be delivered before winter break.

Thank you all for your continued support and we hope you enjoy your child’s creative art pieces.
