Re: [californiadisasters] fire warning !!



Good advice Jason. Up here in NorCal we just had all of the horrible North Bay destruction last week and today is the anniversary of the Oakland Hills Fire (thank you for the reminder Kim Noyes). Diablo and Santa Ana winds are very powerful stuff...stay safe & stay aware of the conditions folks!

These next few days will be extremely dangerous here in SoCal.    Major heat and high winds are predicted, which in the past have been the exact thing to get big fires going around suburban areas.   Nearly all damaging brush fires have happened either this week of October or the week before.    For those who live near the hills, such as myself, please watch for anything suspicious.    I have a bad feeling about the next few days...

[Volcano_Vista_HS] "Supplies for Soaring"



Parent Advisory is working with Volcano Vista's National Honor Society (NHS) to promote "Supplies for Soaring."  Due to the school's tight budget, we hope to ease the burden for staff by donating to the school's stock of copy paper.  From Wednesday, October 18 until Friday, November 3, we ask that you donate ream(s) of paper to help with necessary copies used in our classrooms and school.  Your student can drop off the donation at the school's workroom (downstairs across from the library) before and after school from October 18 - November 3.  Each ream donated gives your student an opportunity to win one of three $15 Regal Cinema gift cards to be awarded on Monday, November 6.  Please help us help our school soar! Thank you!

P.S. Office supply stores sometimes have great deals on reams of paper.


Thank you,


VVHS Parent Advisory & NHS
