Dear Friends and Families of the Children's School,
YOU can help the Children's School's finances by signing up for eScrip. Once signed up, an automatic contribution goes to the Children's School with every purchase you make, donating to the school is as easy as going grocery shopping! There are two sign-up options:
- Pick up a community card at a store like Oliver's (I keep mine on my keychain), register the card online and swipe it every time you shop to give 3% to the Children's School. Use SSU Children's School Parent Club eScrip Group ID - 5824735 when registering. I have registration sheets for Oliver's, let me know if you'd like one and I'll leave it in your child's binder. http://www.escrip.com/merchants/identity/olivers/index.jsp
- Register your credit and debit cards through the eScrip website to have a percentage of all your card's purchases donated. Log onto escript.com, enter our Group ID - 5824735, register debit and credit cards, and shop at merchants with your registered card. http://groups.escrip.com/promo/the_grade.pdf
It takes no more than 15 minutes to pick up a community card and register it or to go online and designate the Children's School as a recipient of your donation. If you need help with any step of the process, let me know and I'll do my best to assist. I've included some links below with more information about the stores involved and how easy it is to sign up.

Sonoma County AEYC Mini-Conference at The Children's School
The Second Annual Mini-Conference: "SUSTAIN: Sustaining Ourselves, Our Field and Our Earth" held at The Children's School was a huge success! We were thrilled with the turnout - we had over 60 participants and 15 presenters from all over Northern California - from Big Sur to Cloverdale!
The presentations covered a range of wonderful topics that celebrated our natural environments and healthy living.
How to celebrate and explore the earth's seasonal changes
How to bring indoor activities outside - including mud play, gardening, yoga, the arts and peace education
How to make organic and healthy snacks for kids
And much more!
