Run with Fleet Feet Pleasanton
When you train with Fleet Feet, you always have a run buddy, accountability partners, and someone to help push you on those longer miles. Check out #FleetFeetPleasanton for their 5K training program.

We Need Your Help!

Events are in need of a Chairperson/Chairs as well. More events will be at risk of being canceled if we do not get the Volunteers needed to run the event. Here are some more events happening that could use more Planners and Helpers.

Science Fair: Additional Planners and Volunteers to help Mrs. Hanafee to help run this event later this school year.

School Smarts: Additional Committee Members

Field Day: Additional Committee Members to help Coordinate this year's event

We want to see all of our events be a success and for our Event Chairs to have the support they need to run these programs. Without volunteers, more activities are at risk of being canceled. If you are interested in helping out, get in touch. There are lots of ways you can help.

If you are interested, please contact our president Cynthia Sandhu:
