Lunch Recess Walking Club - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  We would like to start a lunch-recess walking club for students at CP. We would start with one day a week. This club would be run by two parent volunteers. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Another option during recess

  • Great exercise

  • Task oriented activity

  • Can lead to social connections

Here are some of the logistics:

  • Parents mark laps on student tally cards

  • Students earn “feet” for finishing a specified number of laps

  • Students earn a T-shirt for walking a total of 26.2 miles

If you are interested in getting this program started at CP please email me.

 

District Styrofoam Ban: At the last school board meeting a group of former JM ECO Club students, including several CP alumnae, made a presentation highlighting the negative impact of polystyrene on the environment. The former JM ECO Club members asked the Board to consider banning polystyrene. These students were so persuasive that the Moraga School Board voted to ban the use of styrofoam in the Moraga School District. Check out the MSD webpage for more info: Styrofoam
