DECEMBER/JANUARY DATES TO REMEMBER
Holiday Boutique - Volunteers Needed!
NEXT WEEK IS OUR ANNUAL HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE!! from December 13th through December 15th. Your child will attend on the day and time the teacher signed up for. This is an event that the children enjoy, as they get to purchase gifts for the people they love. All items will be priced at $2.00. An envelope and gift tags were sent last week. Please help them fill out these tags prior to shopping. It will help make the most of their time at the boutique. Please return all unused tags.
Like most Vista events, this cannot happen without our amazing parents. If you'd like to volunteer, please click on the link below and sign up.
Alternatively, you can contact the PTA Holiday Boutique Chair, Karen Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org she will add you to the schedule for the time you desire. Thank you!

State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Congratulates California Schools
Recognized as 2016 National Blue Ribbon Schools
SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today congratulated 29 California public schools that have been chosen as 2016 National Blue Ribbon Schools.
“This recognition for California is a testament to the hard work of our educators, administrators, and communities to prepare our students for both 21st century careers and college,” Torlakson said. “We are making progress, but we must keep our momentum going because we have much work to do.”
The California winners are among 279 public (traditional, charter, choice, and magnet) schools and 50 private schools announced this morning by U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. In its 34-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has presented this award to fewer than 8,500 schools.
• Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or national tests.
More information about the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program can be found on theU.S. Department of Education Web site.

KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE AT VISTA
Student safety is a big concern for everyone at Vista, especially at drop off and pick up times. Please remember that the red curbs are for unloading / loading ONLY in the parking lot. Drivers are NOT to exit their vehicles and students should be prepared to exit the car on the RIGHT SIDE OF THE VEHICLE ONLY with their belongings. You MAY NOT leave your vehicle unattended while in the drop off zones on Wisteria and/ or Madrone. It is also imperative that students not be dropped off in the street or parking lot when a car is "double parked" or in a drive through lane, as this is a serious safety hazard. If you see unsafe driving in the street, please contact the Simi Valley Police Department with a license plate number. If you see unsafe driving in the school parking lot, please report it to the office. We must all work together to keep our students safe!
