In addition to the Charleston Wrap prizes, the PTA is also providing the following prizes for the top 3 students who raise the most money for our school.

Grand Prize: 4 Disneyland Park Hopper Tickets (valued up to $796)

2nd Prize: Balboa Park Family Explorer Pass (valued at $229)

Dear Jonas Salk ES Learning Community,

Site Governance Team and School Site Council are two separate decision-making bodies with respect to school policy, school budget, evaluation of school programs, and parent involvement in a standards-based school. Each committee is comprised of school staff, parents, and community participants. Your participation is essential! We currently have 3 openings on the Board for parents and/or community members & 2 for staff members.

Parent members of these committees serve on both committees and are committed to a two year term (new members will be chosen for 9/2019-9/2021).

If you are interested in serving, please complete the information below and return to Jessica in the main office or via email by 9/18/2019.

Thank you,
