Pasta for Pennies

Once again, Alta Vista is joining two million students in Olive Garden’s Pasta for Pennies campaign. Start gathering your extra change and bring it in every Friday for the month of February. All money will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s School and Youth campaign.

Since this campaign began 13 years ago, Olive Garden’s Pasta For Pennies has raised more than $31 million, thanks to the efforts of students, parents, teachers and school administrators across the nation.

The money raised this month will support leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma research and patient services. The class that raises the most money will receive a pasta party delivered to their classroom and served by our local Olive Garden.

The last day to bring in money is Friday, February 24th.

For more information on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, click here.

Book Bridge Bus and Family Center

The Book Bridge Bus is now a mobile parent center in the Davenport/Haines City area. The bus will be at different schools in this area during the day. Parents and families with a child in a TITLE I Polk County School are invited to visit the bus at any of the locations on our schedule.

The bus will offer parents information, resources, and materials for checkout. In addition, each week the staff on the bus will have an informational workshop for parents/families.

Coming soon…a Family Resource Center on the Campus of Horizons Elementary. Please visit our website for more information and look for the March Calendar coming home at the end of the month.
