The holiday season is upon us! This month we are focusing on giving back to our community with our annual CASA toy drive to help spread some holiday cheer. 2022 has been a fantastic year and let's end it on a high note with the Eastbluff Holiday Concert! We hope everyone has a wonderful winter vacation and we'll see you in 2023!

CASA Holiday Gift Drive
CASA Toy Drive Dec. 5th-16th

Eastbluff PTA's Community Service Committee is excited to offer our students and families a way to give back to our community this Holiday Season. We are partnering with CASA of Orange County to help provide toys for children in Foster Care. While shopping for gifts for your own family, please consider picking up a toy for a child in need. Bring a new, unwrapped toy or gift card at morning drop off or afternoon pickup to the CASA collection table in front of the school office. 

See flyer for details and a list of most desired toys. $25 Amazon Gift cards are also appreciated. 

Please also sign up to help man the toy table or drive the toys to the Orange County Courthouse on Friday Dec. 16th after the Holiday Concert. Sign up here: CASA Toy Drive Signup

Calling All Santas!

If you'd like to sponsor a family in need this season, consider The Priority Center's Families Helping Families Holiday Drive. They are looking for "Santas" to provide gifts for families living below the poverty line. Consider partnering up with another Eastbluff family to sponsor a family in need.

Join Our PTA Board!

Eastbluff's PTA is looking for volunteers to be a part of the 2023-2024 PTA Executive Board! Being a part of the board or a committee is a great way to get more involved with the school, and to have a voice in your child's education. There are different positions with varying time commitments. We would love to see new faces and to get some fresh ideas for the coming year. 

If you are interested in joining the PTA Executive Board, click here for the interest form or pick one up in the office. Complete and return the form by December 20th.

MLK Day Of Service Event

On Monday, Jan.16th, Eastbluff families will once again work side by side in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to help a great cause! Two amazing volunteer organizations, One OC and the OC Food Bank, join together annually to organize "Packing Partners" (that's us!) to assemble and pack food boxes which will be delivered to seniors in need throughout Orange County.

The minimum age is 5+ and all students must be accompanied by a parent. 

So get a head start and sign your family up today as spots fill up fast! There are two shifts available for families to choose from: 10:30AM-12:30PM or 1PM-3PM. Be sure to include the total number of people in your family who will be attending.
