The 2014 Del Mar Heights JOG-A-THON Is Coming Soon…
Friday, November 14th at 10:00AM on the upper grade grass.
Again this year we have a PAPERLESS PLEDGE SYSTEM!
All funds raised from the Jog-A-Thon go straight to the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) to help pay for our PE, Technology, Integrated Arts, and Science teachers (the Extended Studies Curriculum - or ESC). We are using a web based fundraising system that emails pledge requests to your family and friends and lets them make secure, TAX-DEDUCTIBLE credit card donations directly to DMSEF. Encourage family, friends and neighbors to join you by sponsoring your child in this year's Jog-A-Thon, and help us keep our fabulous ESC teachers.

The Used Book Exchange is Coming!
The Used Book Exchange is a fun community event that has been a Del Mar Heights tradition for years. This is a two-part event: the 1st week is collection week & the 2nd week is exchange week.
Collection Dates: Wednesday, November 12 – Friday, November 14
Students bring the books they would like to trade to the MUR, either before or after school. We will track how many books each student turns in. Each book equals one credit.
No credits are given for adult books but appropriate adult books are welcome.
Exchange Dates: Monday, November 17 - Thursday, November 20
Students can “spend” their credits to “buy” books at the exchange. (Monday is a credit only day!) Tuesday through Thursday students can either spend any unused credits or pay cash for books. (Most books are only 25 cents!)
Please help make this a success for our kids!
The Book Exchange can only be a success if parents/students bring in books! Please go through your kids’ books and bring them in! This is a great time to clean out those overcrowded shelves! Also, we are generally short of books for the older kids (grade 5-6) so if you have older siblings at home who can donate books for this age group, we would be very grateful! All proceeds will be used to add new books to classrooms and the school library. All unused books will be donated to local children’s charities.
Volunteers are needed for this event. Please contact Yasmin Petree if you’d like to sign up firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't miss this interactive, hands-on SciFri! Students will be engaged in various challenges and games using robots. Students will also have the opportunity to watch a demonstration of competition level full-size robots.
Friday, November 7th
K-2 from 6-6:45 p.m.
3rd-6th from 7-7:45 p.m.
Sign up at tinyurl.com/mexkems no later than Wednesday, Nov. 5th.

The Heights' Garden Has Blossomed into a Nature Center!
Stop by to see the improvements to our new Nature Center! Over the summer, we were busy clearing out years of debris & critters, building new structures and creating an edible forest with plants that thrive in our unique microclimate. This is only the beginning. The Nature Center will be an exciting place for everyone this year. Come be a part of the fun and enjoy it's delicious rewards! There are many opportunities to volunteer in the Nature Center. Email Shana Khoury if you would like to take part in the changes happening in the Nature Center.
