Volunteers Requirements

We love our volunteers! We appreciate all of the wonderful parents and grandparents who touch the lives of our students each day. Volunteers are the reason our Kindergarten program is so successful. 

Please go to the district web site for further information and to download the appropriate forms needed to complete the fingerpinting process. This can take some time so we strongly encourage families to start the process as soon as possible.


California law does not allow school districts to charge fees to students for curricular and extracurricular activities. However, as you are aware, due to state budget cut backs, schools can no longer afford to fund many of these activities. Therefore, we are requesting voluntary donations from parents to offset the costs of these programs. Parents are not required to make donations and all students may participate in extracurricular activities regardless of whether their parents make a donation. You are not required to purchase the items listed below. For additional information, please visit the CUSD link on Student Fees.

Tote Bags

To foster independence, we strongly encourage all of our Kindergarten students to use a tote bag or messenger bag rather than a backpack. Easy access without the difficulty of opening and closing  zippers leads to student success and greater confidence.  If you wish to show your school spirit Wagon Wheel tote bags are available to purchase to support our Music program.

Kindergarten Music

We are very grateful to the Wagon Wheel PTA.  If it were not for them, our music donation drive would have been twice as much for each family, or we would have had to forfeit our music program.  Luckily, we have families who have donated generously, above and beyond their child’s portion.  Therefore, we have reached our goal to fund a music teacher.  Any future donations received will go towards the cost of future additional assemblies. Also, remember the PTA dues are only $15.00 per family.  They provide many wonderful programs. Your participation is appreciated.

Parking Lot Safety

Please be advised that traffic can become quite congested and parking is limited. We highly encourage that you carpool and/or leave early, to allow enough time for parking. We suggest parking at the Sports Park, or in the neighborhood adjacent to the school.  Parking stall numbers 1-9 on the right, as you enter the parking lot, and stalls marked 42 through 36 on the left side of the school parking lot are available for Visitor Parking only.  Please do not park in the red curbed zone in the school parking lot or in the Bridle Path Cul-de-Sac.

Please remember that when dropping off or picking up your student, to be considerate and merge with others. Always use the crosswalk and watch carefully for pedestrians.   Be respectful of stalls assigned for staff parking and reserved spaces.

Jog -A- Thon

The Jog-A-Thon will be on Friday, October 24th. This is an annual PTA fundraiser.  Your child does not have to submit a donation to participate.  However, every child must return the Student Permission slip stating whether or not they will participate. 

Fall parade and Activity Day

On Friday, October 31st, we will have a costume parade and fall celebration.  On this day, we encourage children and volunteers to dress in costume.  If your child chooses to dress up, please help them to select costumes that reflect animals, book characters, future careers, etc.  We strongly discourage scary or ghoulish costumes, or those that could reflect violence in any way.  Please NO PROPS (i.e. swords, lasers, guns etc.)  Also, please keep in mind that the costume should be safe during recess, (no masks), comfortable during the working part of the day and ones that allow the children to use the restroom independently.  The parade will take place at 9:20, or as soon as the Late Birds arrive.  It will be held on the Kindergarten play yard.  Bring your cameras and stand inside of the bike lane.  When the parade is over, we will ask parents to kneel down so the students can recite a poem.
