FROM YOUR SCHOOL LEADERS
Hello Hollygrove Grownups,
Fall is upon us—CA style, of course. Hard to believe it’s already October! Hollygrove teachers have almost completed beginning of the year assessments and are starting to prepare for upcoming Parent Teacher conferences. We’ll have more information out soon regarding conference sign-ups!
We also want to remind you that our Annual Giving Drive is in full swing. Hollygrove is very proud of our historically high participation rates and we know we'll continue with that tradition. Regardless of how much each family donates, we all know that we are in this together. Our community is strong and remains strong year after year because we rely on the generosity and commitment of our amazing families. We fully realize these are hard times for many of our families, but we only ask for people to give what is meaningful and manageable for them. Hollygrove is planning for 100% mark this year --at which point we can all share in community pride knowing that each and every single family on our campus supported, no matter how large or small, the educational program of our kids.
Please join us in making your pledge for the 2020-21 school year today. Thank you in advance for all of your support and generosity! LARCHMONT ANNUAL GIVING DRIVE Have a wonderful weekend! Alissa & Eva email@example.com

Thanks so much to everyone who joined us for the first LOOP meeting. Here's a brief recap of what we are looking for in terms of parent involvement to help Hollygrove out in this weird strange year. Any takers for any of the positions below please please email firstname.lastname@example.org and cc: email@example.com and put the title of the volunteer work you'd like to do as the SUBJECT line. Here are the needs:

World Fair - we are about to launch the back-end of this years World Fair which is the DIGITAL PASSPORT TO THE WORLD:
Design: Megan Keane and DJ Hauck are going to help us out with drawing and graphic design.
Copy: It would be great to have someone to help with copywriting for the:
-family invite to participate
-advertisements for families to "sell" the passport to their friends and families
Translation: the site will be translated automatically, but we will want some help with proofing the translation and in communications in advance of the site launch
NOTE: If you are fluent in any other languages and are willing to offer translation please let us know!
Tech Support: The site will be built by a company but in order to keep costs down, it would be helpful to have a team of volunteers who can upload information into the templates. Anyone familiar with WordPress is encouraged to throw in some time to this ask!

ELAC MEETING RECAP
We held our first ELAC (English Language Advisory Committee) meeting of the year this past Thursday. Hollygrove's ELD Coordinator, Danielle Kelly, shared all about the upcoming English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) testing. The ELPAC test is used to measure how well students in kindergarten through twelfth grade understand English when it is not their primary language. For those of you who missed this meeting and would like the information, please be sure to see the presentations listed below.
