By Laurie Ellsworth

The La Jolla Elementary School PTO and the Bird Rock Foundation have announced the dates for their Back to School sign-up days for the many programs and required forms for the forthcoming school year.

This marks the first year that Bird Rock Elementary School will host a sign up event.

The events will be in the schools’ auditoriums. Here are the schedules:

— La Jolla Elementary: 5 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 31 or 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 1.

— Bird Rock Elementary: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 31 or 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 1.

The sign-up days are mandatory for all new and returning families, and will include information and/or registration for the following activities and events:

— Completing mandatory district and school requirements

— Purchasing products like yearbooks and logo wear

— Signing up for volunteer opportunities and after school programs

— Donating to the Annual Giving Campaign.

— Joining the PTO/Parent Foundation

“We want to provide parents with a convenient, one-stop approach to orangize their child’s coming school year,” said Julie MacDonald, La Jolla Elementary PTO President. “By offering forms and information for everything needed to begin and progress through the school year, we free both parents and school staff to focus solely on the start of classes when September 6th arrives.”

For families who are new to the school, it is necessary to register at the main school office prior to the sign-up days.
