ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN 61% vs. 100%
Not a misprint, numbers are identical to last week's. Huh?
SBMS's donations to date: 61%
Toddler's 33% + Sycamore's 52% + Willow's 53% + Red Oak's 77% + Sequoia's 60% + Magnolia's 75% = 61%...We're 3/5ths of our way to our goal!
And...it's Re-Enrollment time!
The 2015-2016 school year begins, now...well, over the next few weeks, anyway.
Forms and other paperwork to hold your child's place for the 2015-2016 school year were distributed last week. If you have more than one child at SBMS then your oldest child was presented with a labeled envelope. Enclosed, there should be forms for each child, and a Pink Notice.
STA Bus Service 2015 - 2016 ?
SBMS has provided bus service for the past 10 years and last week included a BLUE QUESTIONAIRE FORM in the Re-Enrollment packet. One family called, one family emailed, and one family came into to discuss options-anyone else?

BBC Series: Extraordinary Women!
One hour long special BBC productions of Extraordinary Women, including Hedy Lamar, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Agatha Christie, and, that's right, Maria Montessori! The attached site includes all of the productions, the special on Maria Montessori's life includes details and insights this Montessorian knew nothing about!
Don't be fooled by brevity-the opening sequence lasts 2 mins until the show's titles, THEN the one-hour television special begins! Consider the possibilities, it might be an excellent option to Super Bowl viewing!
SB Foresters Hall of Fame Dinner
Sunday Feb. 8, 6:00pm
Earl Warren Showgrounds (Earl's Place)
Super Bowl Sunday arrives this weekend, and next weekend...Why the attention to baseball? Major League players running around in their pajamas? Well, sometimes those major leaguers are people we know...
Former MLB Player, Ryan Spilborghs, also happens to be a former Goleta Valley Little League player. Ryan will be the keynote speaker at the HOF dinner. Ryan played several seasons with the Colorado Rockies, and is now in the team's broadcast booth. He can be insightful and funny, and he's a genuinely nice person. A role model.
As a teammate of Colin Fitzpatrick, both with the Foresters and Little League All-Stars, Ryan was an infielder/pitcher on a Little League team managed by Jim Fitzpatrick. Ryan once described that season as, "The most fun I ever had on any team!" Both Ryan and Colin were selected to the Santa Barbara County All Star team-Ryan representing Santa Barbara High, and Colin from San Marcos High School. Connections.
The Foresters baseball team, (summer league collegiate all stars) managed by SBMS alumni and supporter, Bill Pintard, were National Champions, yet again, at the 2014 National Baseball Congress in Wichita, KS. HOF Inductions at the dinner include Virgil (Matt) Vasquez, another former Forester who was an All Star at Santa Barbara High School, and Board of Director member, Mike Pearl.
Many of you will remember Bill Pintard's talents not only on the baseball field, but also center stage at SBMS's Annual Auction Extravaganzas. BTW, "Love Boat," is one of this year's thematic possibilities.
