School Site Council is the governing body of the school and determines budget expenditures and the focus of the school, as reflected in the school plan. If you can participate contact: Adayna Whyte, SSC Chairman by leaving a message at the school at (510) 231-1410.
PTA is the body that supports all the extra supplies, equipment, disaster materials, student assemblies and any thing else they feel is for the good of our students. They are always looking for parents to help them help the children. If you can help in any way, please contact the President: Matthew Taylor at ElizabethStewartPTA@yahoo.com and/or at (510) 691-6267.
ELAC is the second language students' governing body when making decisions about how to spend their budgets and the focus of instruction for our English language learners. It plays a vital role in our school and is a member of the district advisory committee as well. If you can participate in any way, please call the school at (510) 231-1410 and ask to leave a message for Mrs. Maria Oliveros. Mrs. Oliveros is our Spanish Department Chair and is also the lead teacher for all English language development work.
Volunteer: Schools thrive with volunteers. Whether with PTA or driving on field trips, checking homework, reading with students, doing things at night for a teacher or be a classroom mom or dad; there is always a need for volunteers. If you wish to volunteer in the classrooms, come to the office and get a volunteer packet. IF you have time to help the teacher in some way, just notify the teacher. Children learn best when the whole community is involved.
We can always use, as examples:
> noon and after school sports programs
> library volunteers
> noon supervision
> after school tutorials
> out reach
> earthquake/disaster preparedness
Stewart welcomes all the support and assistance it can get. If you have an idea to help support the school, please let us here from you. Together we can only improve our students opportunities.
