    Did you know that currently PHE distributes over 3000
flyer pages a week to the student body? Most of these pages
are read once and then head directly to the recycle bin.
    In an effort towards eco-conservation, the PHE PTA will
be distributing the weekly flyer packets, normally included
in your child’s backpack each Friday, exclusively via our
weekly eNews. Our goal is to try and become as paperless
in the process as possible.
    What does this mean to you? Well, if you are already
signed up for our weekly eNews, then you are already in
the loop – you will be able to download flyers by clicking on
the links on the right side of the online newsletter. Once
downloaded to your computer, you can choose to read the

                               by Beth Manning

                                    Are you interested in knowing "the scoop" about the MDUSD first hand? Then consider
                             representing PHE on the Parent Advisory Council. These meeting are extremely informative and
                            are a great way to hear and address questions to the upper ranks of MDUSD. District
                           Superintendent Gary McHenry runs the meetings and there are always at least two assistant super-
                        intendents present, as well as 2 school board members. PAC has instigated and helped implement
                    some needed changes in MDUSD over the years. They function like a true advisory board. They've worked
on Measure C, inter/intra transfer issues, researching the practicality of a parcel tax two years ago, discipline policies, com-
puter use policies, diplomacy with the teachers union, improving MDUSD communication, and lately a revised and pending
middle/high school homework policy.
    Meetings are held at the Dent Center every first Wednesday from 7:00-9:00 pm. They end promptly at 9. Discussions
are often lively and always informative for everyone involved.
    Attending PAC is a great way for PHE parents to stretch a bit beyond the PHE community to learn of larger district
issues and especially to see and learn from reps within our College Park High School feeder pattern. No pre-registration is
necessary if you would like to attend these meetings - you can just go.

PHE EDUCATION FOUNDATION NEWS
                                                     by Steve Oldenbourg

                     RECORD BREAKING MEMBERSHIP DRIVE FOR PHEEF!
    The Pleasant Hill Elementary Education Foundation (PHEEF) membership drive at All-in-One-Day
kicked off the school year with a record-breaking effort. The Foundation raised $21,726 and pledges are still
coming in. Donations were received from over 160 different parents, grandparents, guardians, and school staff. This year’s
membership drive resulted in a 30% increase in donations over last year. This significant increase will directly impact our
kids at PHE. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
    Since our inception in 1998, the Foundation has become an integral part of the school’s community and the services
offered to our students. Our fundraisers, that include membership, spell-a-thon, eScrip, and the extremely popular Spring
Gala, bring in funds to pay for classroom aides, K-3rd PE assistants, MARE, the computer lab instructor, and supplemental
materials. Our membership drive is year round so it’s not too late to join by dropping off your donation in the PHEEF mail-
box in the school office. Did you know that many companies will match employee donations to educational causes? Contact
your human resources office to find out if your company will match your gift. This is an easy way to raise additional funds
for the school.
                                    GET INVOLVED AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
   We are looking for volunteers to help with the Foundation. We meet the second Tuesday of every month at 8:00AM in
the library. Our next meeting is October 14. We are always looking for energetic individuals and currently we need people
who have expertise in accounting, graphic design, and web design. Please join us at one of our meetings and help us do
great things for our kids and school! If you are interested in helping or just want to learn more about the Foundation, please
contact Steve Oldenbourg at 925-943-7307.
