New School Calendar Proposals 2015/2016 School Year and Beyond
A proposal has been made to the board and district officials that we move to a
calendar system. This new system, should it be approved, would take effect
Fall 2015. There are a few
calendar options/changes being discussed, most of which have PUSD starting in
early mid August and
one has PUSD starting school in late July. Clearly these calendar shifts are
a notable change from what
we are all used to. It is strongly encourage you to attend one of the
community forums on calendar

During the month of March, Mohr School is is participating in a district-wide
effort to support the Wheelchair Foundation. The 3 primary goals of the
1.raise awareness about the need for mobility in the world
2. sensitize students to the issues faced by people with
intellectual/developmental and physical disabilities
3. raise money to provide wheelchairs for those in need
Our monetary goal at Mohr is to collect donations that represent $2.50 per
student. That would be the equivalent of providing approximately 12
wheelchairs for people who are unable to afford one. For less than the price
of a school lunch, students can change a life by giving the gift of hope and
mobility.Donations in any amount are welcome, and may be made in the form of
cash, checks (to the “Wheelchair Foundation”), or online at
https://www.wheelchairfoundation.org/give/donation. (If donating online,
please select “From the Heart--Schools Project” at the bottom of the page.)
Thank you for supporting this worthy cause and wonderful lesson in compassion
for our students!
Golden Sneaker Contest sponsored by PTA
We will be participating in the Pollution Solution Golden Sneaker Contest
again this year. It will take place during the first two weeks of March (3-
14). The contest is designed to be fun & low key. It is another way to get
kids & families moving & thinking about alternate ways of getting to school.
Studies have also shown that when children have participated in some form of
exercise before school they are more engaged in class. That having been said,
like last year this is optional. The class that has the greatest percentage
of walkers, rollers, bus riders & carpool riders will get to display the
Golden Sneaker trophy in their classroom.
Upcoming Field Trips:
Watershed hands-on at Veterans Park - May 29th
Gold Rush Day - June 11th
Have a FABULOUS week!
