Hello Tulita Families,
I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to thank Robin Jason and highlight her efforts with the Tulita PTA Book Fairs, which she has tirelessly run for the last three years. This year was no exception; in addition to coordinating the entire event, Robin was at Tulita each day of the book fair from 7:00 am – 3:00 pm, always with a smile. Thank you very much; your enthusiasm, hard work and energy are deeply appreciated. This year the book fair generated over $10,000 dollars that will used to update the Tulita library and fulfill teacher’s classroom needs.
Thank you to all of the book fair volunteers, including:
Donna Reilly, Al Arizmendez, Mary Clare Scanlon, Emily Marsh, Emma Macleod, Melissa DeChandt, Diana Nelson, Kristin Jacobs, Darice Olds-Mason, Jean Lerner, Janelle Geistlinger, Justine Muus, Hayley Salus, Marilyn Crawford, Annette Alpern, Shelley Schrader, Ali Daly, Beth Brenton, Terry Maggay Wagner, Liz Koutures, Pam Davy, Laurie Stimfig, Bindu Xavier, Laura MacMorran, Tiffany Berger, our clean-up crew: Tinsley Arizmendez, Myles Jason, Christopher McKnight, Angela McKnight, Matthew Mason and Christophe Goeminne.
The book fair would not have been a success without all of your help.
Thank you to all who volunteer each day; you help make Tulita the special community that it is.
GO SEAHAWKS! Congratulations to the Redondo Union High School Girls Volleyball team, which just won its first CIF Statewide Tournament Title!
Have a great week as we all prepare for winter break!
Al Arizmendez, Tulita Elementary PTA President

The parent component of the Safely Ever After program, “A Little Ounce of Prevention” will be on the evening of October 10th 2014. The 90-minute presentation for parents dispels the myths and clarifies the truths surrounding sexual abuse and abduction, helps parents learn who predators are, what they count on and common tricks that they use to lure children. The presentation provides insight on teaching our children proper safety skills without fear and guidelines on when to start.
Stay tuned for information regarding location.
