News & Announcements


Hello Playa Families and welcome to the month of December!

All are welcome to our next FOP meeting Tuesday, at 6pm.  
You’re also invited to our next coffee with the principal and our school nurse Marilyn Schmitter on Thursday, December 8th, 8:15am in our auditorium. With the cold and flu season here, Mrs. Schmitter will be giving information on ways to remain healthy along with avoiding illnesses and other contagious diseases throughout the holiday season.

Thank you to the classroom teachers, students, families in rooms 1 & 2, and custodial staff as we maneuvered around a water pipe break near the main entrance gate this week. Classrooms were under repair due to unfortunate water damage. Everyone remained true Dolphin rockstars as we relocated to various rooms due to clean-up and moisture testing. Room 2 will remain closed and relocated to our library until after the winter break. Again, thank you for your continued patience and flexibility. 

Our holiday basket fundraiser begins this week.  Your room parent(s) has your classroom/and or grade level theme this year. Finished baskets are due by Friday, December 9th. 

This month our character education trait is Caring. Caring means to show acts of kindness, being considerate of others, expressing gratitude, helping others in need. Please help our children build on the lessons of displaying and giving examples of this new character trait during December. Character Trait tickets will continue to be rewarded each week to students showing their BEST behavior.

Save the Date:

  • Basket ticket sales will be from 12/9-12/14;
  • Our winter performance is scheduled on Wed. Dec. 14th with an 8:30am performance and a 1pm performance.


Thank You:
·      To Mrs. Yzquierdo for donating office and school supplies!
