Golden Sneaker Contest

Lace up those shoes, dust off those bikes, or get ready to share your ride! The Safe Routes to Schools Golden Sneaker Contest is coming to your school.

From February 24 to March 6, students will work together to reduce car trips by using active and shared transportation options such as:


Skateboarding, using a scooter, or any other human-powered wheels
Riding the school bus
Using public transit such as AC Transit or BART
Carpooling with other families

The Golden Sneaker Contest offers a chance for every student to participate. If you live too far from school to walk or roll, you can:

Park a few blocks away and walk
Meet up with friends who live close to school and walk or roll as a group
Start a carpool 
Take the school bus or public transit to school

Students will track how they get to school each day. The classroom with the highest percentage of these healthy travel choices will win a Golden Sneaker Trophy and golden shoelaces.

What's the Hospitality Committee About?

The hospitality committee is a “sweet” committee to be on. We provide yummy treats for staff once a month usually with a :star2: STAR-TASTIC :star2: theme. Another duty of the committee is we provide warm beverages and a treat for Coffee w/principal, the monthly SPA meeting, the Welcome Back to School breakfast, Tissue & Tea on the first day of school event for families, staff dinner on Back to School Night, and help assist with International night dinner.

May is a super fun time for showing our appreciation to all our teachers when we spoil them with daily surprises/treats for Teacher Appreciation week. We decorate and have a special theme. We finish up the week with a luncheon! The teachers and staff are always very thankful and appreciative for all we do as the hospitality committee.

Please consider joining the hospitality committee! You can contact Leslie Foster or Chrissy Becerra with any questions... our email is
Important Message About Parking

Dear Stanton Families, 
We recognize shortage of parking for families as children are dropped off and picked up. In order to be good neighbors, we ask that you consider the impact on them as you park. Please do not block driveways at anytime, even if you are in the car waiting to pick your child up. Thank you for your continued cooperation and attention to this matter.
In collaboration- Mrs. Robin Ormsby, Stanton Principal
Support Measure I 

Vote YES this March to keep high quality teachers in the classroom and protect our outstanding local Castro Valley schools! 

Every penny from the parcel tax measure will be locally-controlled and directly support Castro Valley schools. Our outstanding schools make Castro Valley a wonderful place to live and voting YES on this measure keeps our property values strong.
