The Altamont Creek staff and students want to express our appreciation for everything the PTA has done for our school.  PTA has enriched the students lives tremendously organizing special events and assemblies, purchasing supplies, books, computers, BrainPop and other on-line subscriptions, setting up special holiday events, and much more. Many volunteers spend hours of planning and implementing these school events.
Below are a few messages of appreciation from our students…

Messages from your fifth grade friends...
Dear PTA,

Thank you for all the things you have done for us all of these years. I love playing Brain-pop and going to assemblies. You have done so much for us like setting up the wind festival and that is one of my favorite events. On a hot day you make it fun with the Jamba Juice on Wednesday and it is delicious. Sometimes I go to the movie event and that is very fun, Bingo night is also exciting, and Wonderland is so much fun. I don’t think reading would be as much fun as it is without the AR system. All my six years at Altamont Creek have been fun and you are one of the reasons for that. Thank Your PTA!

Dear PTA,

Thank you for what you have done for all these six years I’ve been here. I love going to assemblies and other activities like when the guy came and showed us magic tricks. I also love going to the Wind Festival every year. Having Jamba Juice come on Wednesdays are so awesome. Thank you for getting the book fair set up. I love the book fair. And those ice cream Fridays are wonderful. Thank You! I will miss this school!

Messages from your fourth grade friends...
Dear PTA,

I think that out of everyone in the whole school you guys are the ones who work the hardest! Personally I would like to thank you for giving out Jamba Juice, help run the lunch room and many other great things! So from the deepest part of my heart I would like to say...Thank You!

Dear PTA,

I will miss you at the end of the school year and I greatly appreciate anyone who is in the PTA. I will be glad to see the PTA in fifth grade next year. The best work in my opinion you have done is the computers. Good luck and take care.

Dear PTA,

Our school is really thankful for people like you! Thank you very much! I have listed some things that make my day happier! Jamba Juice, BBQ, Movie Night, computers, Hoe-Down. Thanks for making our school the happiest place on Earth!
