2016-17 Afterschool Program

The final session of the Afterschool Program is ending soon.  This is the final week for classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  The final Monday class is May 15th.  The one exception is that there will be a final Yoga class May 17th to compensate for a cancelled class earlier in the Spring session.

Thanks to all of instructors, the Mistral/Castro staff, and the parent volunteers that make this possible.  Have a great summer and we encourage people to enroll for the classes in upcoming 2017-18 year

¡El Fandango!

Bring the family to enjoy flamenco guitar by Tans Gauntlett, free dinner, a kids' movie with popcorn, and a dynamic and engaging PTA meeting.  Wednesday, May 24, 5:30-8:30pm

Recess Supervision Help

We invite you to help provide extra adult supervision during lunch recess. Our yard supervisors are wonderful, and during our current construction phase, their job can be difficult with children spread out in different areas. Surely our students could benefit from extra sets of caring eyes and hands! Please sign up for one shift or several! Contact me with any questions.

Thank you,
Sara Kopit-Olson, VP Mistral PTA

Marker Recycling

Instead of tossing markers into the trash, let’s Colorcycle them!  Your classroom and library have Colorcycle boxes for marker drop off.  Our 5th grade Girl Scout Troop 61076 will recycle markers by collecting and shipping used markers to a Crayola facility to convert them into clean fuel.  This fuel can be used to fill vehicles, heat homes, cook meals, and more!  

Please go to to learn more about Colorcycle!
