If your child goes to Adventure Time, you can also adjust your schedule so they know to pick up at 4 pm at school and you won’t get charged for that time (2:50-4:00 pm). They will bring kindergartners to school at 2:50 pm prior to a class starting also.
We are excited to announce our after-school STEAM enrichment class which will begin on February 19th from 3-4 pm (download flyer). Space is limited. If you are interested or have any questions, please email Sithy Mashoor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our teachers are credentialed and finger-print cleared from the Department of Justice.
The Winter Book Fair is Feb 15th through Feb 23rd. Opening night will be at the Open House on Thursday, February 15th from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. See the following link to sign up for available volunteer spots. We can’t have any activities without your help. Please consider volunteering.
The Family Dance is Friday, March 9th, 2018.
Ticket order forms will go home with your child any day now. Please fill these out and turn them into the office by Friday, February 23rd. Please see all open volunteer spots in the following sign up genius link. Anyone that volunteers for the dance will receive free admission to the dance.

Hello amazing donors and volunteers. Today we received a special delivery. Our 5 year old was amazed that santa’s elves brought us a tree, so now it “really IS” Christmas with a tree and a feast and everything!
We cannot tell you how blessed we are and how magical this has made Christmas for our daughter. Despite Daddy being hurt and Mommy working too much, it is still “Christmas” and the magic of Christmas is very much alive.
Please send our utmost thanks and gratitude to all the volunteers, donors, and amazing people that have made Christmas come to our house this year in such a magical way. God Bless you all and we pray that next year we will be able to return the love to another family.
Happy holidays! Jensen Ranch has, once again, teamed up with Castro Valley Outreach to adopt seven families in need. Each grade has an opportunity to make a local family’s holiday wishes come true. For a list of our adopted families’ wish list, see Signup Genius links below. We also shared information about our adopted families in the signups, given what was provided to us.

Jensen Ranch Community Outreach Committee
Castro Valley Outreach’s Thanksgiving Food Drive, which served 125 families from our community last year, will again collect non-perishable items for families in need this year. Each grade level is requested to bring any of the following non-perishable and unexpired items to school from Monday, November 6th to Friday, November 17th.
Stuffing (box or bag)
Canned green beans
Boxed Dessert Mixes
Canned mixed vegetables
Aluminum roasting pans
*Please check expiration dates as expired food cannot be accepted!
The balance of the menu is perishable and will be purchased by our Castro Valley Outreach volunteers. To create a well-rounded holiday meal for our families, we also need gift cards in any denomination from Safeway, Lucky or Trader Joe’s. Please leave gift cards in the Office for safe keeping.
Anyone wishing to write a check to “Castro Valley Outreach” can also leave the check in the Office. Cash donations are tax deductible and you will receive a thank you letter. What a great way to show our children what we all have to be thankful for. Reach out and help others. Give what is right not what is left!
Happy Holidays and Thanks for Your Generous Support!

The Castro Valley Chipotle, located at 3369 Castro Valley Blvd, will sponsor Jensen Ranch Elementary PTA from 5-9pm on Friday, 11/3. Eat at Chipotle and show them this flyer during these hours and they will donate 50% of proceeds to Jensen Ranch. So tell all your friends and families. Gift cards purchased at Chipotle during these hours do not count toward our fundraising efforts. However, gift cards purchased through the PTA beforehand can be used towards the fundraiser and bring in an additional 10% rebate. That means, for every $10 spent that night, $6 will return to Jensen Ranch PTA.
The PTA will purchase some Chipotle gift cards and presell them before the event outside the MPR on Friday, October 13th before Friday Flag. We may sell a few more Fridays before 11/3. So please check back.
Thank you for your continued support!
