1/25 Fall ASK Celebration

A big thank you to Starr King for your generous support of the PTA’s Fall ASK campaign! We smashed through our $225,000 goal and ended up at $256,000 — which is amazing. We’ll use the money to support our teachers, fund our science paraprofessional, support outdoor education, and much more. We celebrated on Friday the 25th with shaving cream pies in the morning and popsicles in the afternoon!

1/18 Black Affirmation Breakfast

We recognized there are many negative images of Black people. The purpose of the breakfast was to give Black students the opportunity to counter those perceptions with positive images. One of the ways we do this is through positive affirmations. After reciting the Starr King Affirmation, students wrote their own and many chose to recite them for the audience. Once student returned to class, Ms. Martin and Mr. Fitzsimons heard from parents about what they wanted for their students while they attended Starr King.

Another wonderful green work day. Thank you SKES volunteers. 

We spread California Native Wildflower seeds along the North, East and West perimeter of the SKES site.

We spread California Poppies along the Wisconsin Street/ Starr King Open Space sidewalk strip.

We added squatter and shorter pine wood rounds to the yard and Wisconsin Street and more mulch.

We also did a thorough trash clean up. Thank you all!!!
