Back to School Picnic / PTA Info Fair

September 3, 2019 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Hello Birch Lane Families!
Tonight is the Back to School Picnic!  5-7 PM on the back field.

We’ll have food trucks (Slightly Skewed, Woodstock’s, and Kona Ice).

There will be information tables from PTA, Fun Run, Recess Club, Boy Scouts, and more, so come check it out!

Also, tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 4, we’ll have our first PTA meeting at 7 PM in library.  We’ll be discussing many exciting things for this school year, and voting on our budget for the year.  Now is the time to come find out what PTA does and share your voice.
To be a voting member, you can join online here:  or bring $15 to the meeting and join then.

And finally, we are excited to announce that the new Recess Club will start on September 9th!  Here is a note from our coordinator, Melissa Dabel:
Calling all Eagles (and their beloved adults)!!

The first day of the Birch Lane Recess Club is Monday, Sept. 9th. BL Recess Club will host various activities during lunch recess through-out the school year. These activities are open to all students and students do not need to sign-up to participate. Just have students look for the adults in blue Recess Club shirts during lunch recess and join if interested. We have several ways students can participate in all Recess Club activities and we can accommodate all students. All materials needed for the activities are provided. All activities will be held in the back playground area. Students can participate for 1 minute or 20 minutes. It is up to them!

The lineup for next week is:

Monday- Yoga in the Park and Chalk It Up Tuesday- Birch Lane Troubadours (singing)
Thursday- Running Club
Friday – Dance Party and Chalk It Up

**Creativity Corner is open Mondays and Fridays. Students can check out games, jump ropes, puzzles, etc. from the Recess Club cart.

A special “Thank you” to all the community members who donated supplies this summer and/or donated money at the auction last year. You have been so generous and this program is only possible because of you. We will be collecting additional supplies through-out the year so it is not too late to donate if interested.

Lastly, a heart-felt “Thank you” to all the volunteers who are willing to come out and share their time and talents with the BL students during Recess Club. Neal Hibbard, Rucheeta Kulkarni, Megan White-Chumo, Molly Eleen, Jen Ling, Leslie Holeman-Umali and so many others. You are amazing! We would love additional volunteers so please contact if interested.

The Birch Lane Recess Club is where Eagles soar!
