Cali PTA invites you to join us in supporting our 9th annual Move-a-thon. The theme is Around the World.
MOVE-A-THON IS A FUNDRAISER AND EVENT
The FREE event happens Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 2pm-5pm at the Cali gym and sports field.
Over 1,000 Cali students and their families participate in an afternoon of fitness activities: soccer, zumba, basketball, volleyball, yoga, taekwondo, and much more. It’s a great way to bring our Cali community together to have fun and to promote healthy lifestyle choices. All Cali students who attend will receive a free uniform approved t-shirt at the event.
The fundraising kicks-off with a rally for the students. Students gather pledges from family and friends and can win prizes for their participation. Pledge packets will be sent home the week of the rally. Please look for the packet in your child’s backpack.
TBD: Move-a-thon Rally. Pledge packets sent home with students.
Sept 24th - Oct 7th: Students get pledges.
Saturday, Sept. 24: Move-a-thon! Free Move-a-thon t-shirts will be handed out to all participants.

SUMMER 2016 UPGRADES at CALI
More Storage If you try to run under the stairwell of the two story building, you might run into new storage. What a great use of space! Thank you to Bill Goodwin and Ben Faulkner for getting the materials and building the storage unit. Thank you Sharon Ferrer and her daughters for painting it!
Improved Area for Lunch Tables Last year part of the Move-a-thon donation money was to get rid of the ugly planter box and put in cement near Room 43 and the lunch area. Before it was an area that didn't fit as many tables and it was covered with gravel that got muddy in bad weather. Over the summer the tree stump and huge planter box got removed. Then the last week of summer, an amazing crew donated their labor cost to come in and level the area and pour the cement. Thank you for supporting PTA and this effort! The shade for this area will be coming in the future.
Watering the garden! Thank you to these families for coming over the summer to keep our plants growing! Maria Olvera, Al Vega, Desiree Rodriguez, Kellie Gillingham, Olga Ramírez, Andy Pecharich, Veronica Piñeda del Gallí, Sonia López.
Garden Work Day So many Cali families! We cleaned up the Scholar's garden, the kinder garden, and worked really hard on the Keyhole Garden next to classrooms 22 and 14. It is amazing what can happen with so many working at the same time. Keep a lookout for other work days since this is a great way to get your volunteer hours.
Backpack hooks! All those lovely hooks that hold up so many backpacks each day were put up within the last week and a half of summer. Thank you Kevin Becnel for getting the wood and getting the first holes and hooks drilled. Thank you Troppy Painting for donating the paint and with the help of parent volunteers painting the boards. Thank you to the Feibusch family, Kevin Becnel, the Chatfields (Ben, Sam, their dad Greg, and nanny Letitia), and John Lockett (Colin & Eli Henley's grandfather) for the endless hours drilling holes and screwing in the 500 hooks. The district employees worked like lightening to get them up the final days of summer. It was days of work!
Classrooms Thank you to all the teachers, their family members and friends that worked so hard above and beyond to move into certain classrooms after last minute construction needs. They worked so hard to get their rooms ready for our kids!
It is very exciting that we get our own Oliver's Market in Windsor!
