  • Winter Craft Day, Potluck and Cookie Exchange

    When: Friday, December 9, 2016

    Time: 10:00-2:00 

    Crafts ~ 10:00-1:00 (Gingerbread cookies, candle making, Whoville headbands, Grinch masks, bracelets, ornaments, and more)

    Potluck ~ 1:00-2:00   We are asking for Casseroles or Soups, since they are easy to keep warm in crock pots or quickly heat on the stove.  Families should bring enough to feed at least the amount of people they are bringing to the potluck.  It is recommended to bring enough to feed about 10 people to help ensure we have plenty of food for everyone.

    Cookie Exchange ~ 1:30  Families are asked to bring 2 dozen of their favorite homemade cookies or desserts to share and 10 copies of the recipes.  This is a great way to collect new recipes for the holidays while being able to sample the recipes.

  • Santa's Helper

    As the holidays are approaching, Mountain Oaks is anticipating the season of giving and of need. We are once again offering our Santa’s Helper program to the families at all three of our sites. Families in need of Christmas presents for their children (or mentor teachers who are aware of families in need) should contact either the site secretaries (Sarah/Dana, Judi or Shannon) or an administrator (Anne) by Friday, November 18th to apply. Each family in need will be asked to complete a short questionnaire regarding their child or children. Questions like age, gender, sizes, interests, needs and wants will help those families who decide to become Santa’s Helpers by purchasing gifts. The names of those students in need and their families are kept confidential through the use of a numerical tracking system.
    Once all the questionnaires have been returned, a Christmas tree will be erected in the front office of the San Andreas site with numbered ornaments on it. Each ornament will represent a needy child. Families who want to be Santa’s Helpers will select a numbered ornament from the tree, shop for the student whose number is on the ornament and bring the wrapped gifts to the San Andreas site secretary by Monday, December 12th.  Families will be able to pick up the gift from Tuesday, December 13th to Thursday, December 15th.  Any gifts not picked up by Thursday the 15th  at 4:30P will not go to waste . . . they will be donated to Santa’s Express.
    Please feel free to contact Samantha at 754-0532 ext. 0 if you have any questions. Thank you!

    Santa Helper Program

    1. Families in need of Christmas gifts will contact their mentor teacher, an administrator, or the front desk and will be given a survey to complete.

    2. All surveys will be given to an administrator for approval.

    3. All names will be kept confidential by using a tracking number.

    4. The student’s answers and tracking number will be transposed onto paper ornaments for families to choose.

    5. Families that choose an ornament will give the front office their name and which tracking number they chose.

    6. Families purchasing gifts will need to wrap them and attach the ornament to the top of the gifts. Bring them to the school by the Friday before the last week of school before Winter Break.

    7. Any gifts not picked up by the families in need by the last day of school before Winter Break will be donated to Santa’s Express.

    8. Suggested maximum donation should be $50.00. 

    Santa Helper Eligibility

    1. At least one student must attend Mountain Oaks.

    2. The National School Lunch Program will be used to determine if the family is eligible.  Families should qualify for either Free or Reduced lunches.
