Our outstanding visual and performing arts department celebrated our 6th annual Candlelight Concert performances, which highlighted the exceptional work of our choir. Our band concert showcased an outstanding performance, followed by our Winter Guitar Concert and choir’s Holiday Spectacular. Our annual Winter Showcase and Craft Fair featured some truly beautiful and unique items for sale by our creative student artists and craftspeople.

The City of Pleasant Hill, through the Education Commission, sponsored a citywide Hour of Code, which highlighted the importance of coding and its many applications. Several students participated and learned how fun coding can be. A special thank you to Pleasant Hill Education Commissioner Kelly St. Germain for her leadership in the organization and publicity of this fun event.

Each year, the College Park Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) organizes a Holiday Outreach program for College Park families who need a little bit of support during the holidays. College Park teachers and staff identified about 50 students in need and our goal was to provide each of these families with a $50 gift card to Target to assist in making their holidays special. The community was generous in their support and we want to say thank you!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sara Silver at [email protected] or Nathalie Keating at [email protected].

We will have a Drug Awareness Parent Education Night Tuesday, January 9, at our PTSA general meeting. The meeting begins at 6pm, followed by the Drug Awareness Presentation at 7pm in the library. All are welcome!

As I reflect on this 2017 calendar year, there are so many people and organizations I am thankful for. We have a tremendous Falcon community that truly wants to support us in so many ways. Our community, staff, and students are, without a doubt, second to none! I wish you all a wonderful winter break and holiday season.
