As we bring this 2016 year to a close, we want to take some time to reflect on the many wonderful people that do so much for our children and our school. We want to thank our teachers, parents, and support staff for their commitment to bringing our children an outstanding instructional program and a fine learning environment. On behalf of the entire staff at White Point, we wish everyone a relaxing winter break and a prosperous New Year! We will see you back at school on January 9, 2017. The next Whale Watcher will be sent home in February.
Parents: Please check the school calendar frequently as it is subject to change. For the PFO-specific calendar, please visit our Parent Faculty Organization page.

We hope you all had a great Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year. We are looking forward to another productive and successful year and we couldn't have done it last year without your never-ending support and generosity. Thank you!
PFO would like to share with you some of the new things we have for this year and remind you of the on-going projects and fundraisers. This month's newsletter features the following:
Construction Zones: Please remember the school's traffic pattern. We have A LOT of construction going on, so it's imperative that we use the one-way driving pattern. In addition, kindergarten ramp is still under construction. All drop off/pick up will be from the big gate. Teachers parking is also still under construction. Please use caution and plan on street site parking.
BoxTops: Keep turning in those BoxTops! Don't forget to download the BoxTops Bonus app as well to get bonus earnings!
If you haven't already, be sure to link your Vons - Just for U account with BoxTops to earn more for our school. Here are the details:
What are eBoxTops on just for U?
eBoxTops, like Box Tops for Education, are worth 10¢ each for your school. However, instead of clipping them from the package and sending them in, eBoxTops are digital. They are awarded electronically to your school at boxtops4education.com and will be included in your school's next Box Tops check. eBoxTops can be earned through just for U by simply adding special Box Tops offers to your Card at the Coupon Center and redeeming them in-store.
How does it work?
First, make sure you are registered with vons at vons.com/justforu. Second, enroll in the Box Tops for Education program at vons.com/boxtops to participate. Once you've enrolled, simply start clicking eBoxTops offers within the Coupon Center. Redeem these offers by purchasing participating products in-store using your Club Card. The eBoxTops will be automatically awarded to the school you selected in registration. You can see your earnings on boxtops4education.com 24 hours after your purchase.
Fundraising Committee: PFO is on a look out for a Fundraising Chairperson to chair our current Fundraising Committee. We have a great and eager Fundraising Committee. We need someone to take the reins and lead them through fruitful and engaging fundraising opportunities. So, if this is you or if you know of the right person for this volunteer opportunity, please send us a message or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ongoing PFO Fundraisers/Rewards:
Box Tops: Please continue to save your Box Tops. We will have another collection in the spring.
