All PAPER wanted! This year tell all family and friends to save their old newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail, etc. All paper (except anything associated with food) will be accepted. Bag or box your papers and bring them to your child's class or simply drop them in our brown paper recycling dumpster. The dumpster is located next to the blue trash dumpsters adjacent to the cafeteria and Day Care Room. For every 2,000 lbs. we collect, the school will receive $90, so start saving. We will also continue collecting ink cartridges and cell phones. Please call the office if you have any questions.

The Brea Olinda Unified School District Board of Education has retained Dr. Mike Escalante and Dr. Marc Ecker of Leadership Associates to assist in the search for a new superintendent for BOUSD. They will be in our District on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, to solicit input that will be used to develop the recruitment criteria. Your input about the desired personal and professional qualities expected in the incoming superintendent is valuable to the selection process.
Meetings will be scheduled to gather input from staff, parents, community leaders, service organizations, PTA/PTO/PTSA Boards, and Site Councils. The community is invited to attend the open forum scheduled for March 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the District Office conference room.

Street Sweeping -- Parking Alert!
Street sweeping on Flower Avenue is on Thursdays. We are permitted to park anywhere along the east curb (the school side) other than the Bus Loading Zone. The City has assured us that sweeping on the east side will be done around 7:00 a.m. so as not to interfere with our school traffic. Please avoid parking on the west side (the business side) of Flower as sweeping will be done on that side later in the day, and you could be cited.
Traffic in the back alley has become a concern, especially in the mornings from 7:45 - 8:00 a.m. We ask ALL parents to enter on Birch and drive out toward Imperial. Laurel families should never drive toward Birch or park in the alley. Please be advised there is NO parking allowed in the alley. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
