August 1st (Friday)“COLLEGE SPIRIT WEAR DAY” – This Friday is our first of our monthly college spirit wear days!  Do you or your family have a favorite college you like cheering for when watching sports on TV?  Maybe the college your parents attended?  Or maybe just a college you may be interested in attending?  Haven’t thought about it yet?  Now is the time!  If you don’t have a college shirt in your closet, ask your parents or other family members if they have a college shirt you can wear.  If you want your shirt to count for your class’ spirit count, make sure it has the college name or logo prominently displayed.

As part of our college to career program, Elitha Donner will feature different colleges throughout the school year.  Our students will learn interesting facts about colleges throughout the United States.  Need to clean out the closet or clean off those shelves?  Donate your college shirts, memorabilia or items to be used during our spirit rallies.

Student Accident Insurance:

The school district assumes no liability for accidents to students at school (E.C. 49472, 49471, 48980) and the district does not provide medical insurance for individual students. However, you may purchase student accident insurance if you wish to do so. The insurance provides coverage for your child while on school grounds or in school building during the time your child is required to be there during a regular school day while being transported by the district to and from school or other place of instruction; or while at any other place as an incident to school-sponsored activities and while being transported to, from and between such places.
