Volunteer Appreciation Lunch

Our community is filled with the most amazing volunteers! We have parents who show up to every class party, grandparents who take the time to read in the classroom, community leaders who give hours upon hours of their time to produce epic events, those who show up every week to help out in the library….the list of helpful, caring, and giving adults who contribute to our school community is HUGE!

If you have volunteered your time in any way this school year, please join us for the Volunteer Appreciation Lunch on June 11th!

Thank you

Please join us on the patio outside the Teatro. Lunch will arrive in two waves this year: 11:15am and 12:15pm, to better accommodate the morning and afternoon Field Day volunteer shifts. If you are signed up to volunteer for Field Day, please make sure to check in at the Welcome Table. If you are coming just for lunch, please check in at the Main Office.

Gratitude for Sra. Brody

After decades of service to our community, our school Librarian Stacey Brody has announced her retirement.

Please join us as we show our gratitude for her compassion and dedication. Sra. Brody has shared her love of reading with thousands of Puesta del Sol children over the years. She will be so missed!

The current students have all been given postcards to write a poem, share a memory, or draw a picture for Sra. Brody. If you would like additional cards to print at home, they can be found here:

 


All the postcards will be collected and put into a book for Sra. Brody. We would also love to include printed photos of her with students in the book!  Cards and printed photos may be put in the box in the Front Office, given to your child’s teacher, or brought to International Art Fest on May 22nd.

The completed book will be presented to Sra. Brody at this year’s 5th Grade Teacher Tea. Please turn in cards or printed photos no later than June 1st.  If your kids would like one last chance to read poems with Sra. Brody, she and her famous Poetry Chair will be at International Art Fest. We hope to see you there!

Host Families Needed for 2024-2025

Puesta del Sol offers a unique opportunity for families to host Spanish speaking interns for the school year. The interns come from Colombia, El Salvador, and Spain and they share an interest in teaching. They will assist in the classrooms and use their experience to enrich their career in education in their home country.

Amity Application

We are in need of 15-18 host families for this upcoming school year. Host families can participate in 3 or 6 or 9 month terms. Families are asked to provide housing and meals.

Are you interested in making friends from another country? Open to sharing and learning about other cultures? Do you want your child(ren) to have more Spanish exposure/learning at home? Consider applying to be a host and join our amazing Amity family!

If you are interested in hosting for the 2024-2025 school year, please fill out our Amity Host Application Form.
