    Dear Loma and CT Families,


    My Top Three Moments of the Week

    1. Enjoying seeing happy kids playing in the SUN!
    2. Hearing about all the fun CT had on beach day! It is so fun seeing all the boogie boards propped-up outside classrooms. What a very Californian sight!
    3. Celebrating another great Jog-A-Thon at the awards assembly today. Our school ran over 8000 laps this year!

    Loma Prieta Fireman's BBQ

    Join Us for our 56TH Annual Firefighters BBQ fundraiser on Sunday, June 2nd, 2019, starting 11am until 4pm.  This is a Santa Cruz mountain tradition with great BBQ for purchase, lots of games for the kids, raffles for goods and services, and even a grand prize raffle for a family vacation, going on all day.  There will be a variety of fire engines from Santa Cruz County and CAL FIRE, air ambulance and rescue helicopters, and even an auto extrication demonstration.  The Sheriff's Department, Summit CERT, CAL FIRE and the Fire Safe Council will all have a display there.  Each dollar earned and donated during this annual BBQ raises the operating funds for the fire department so that they can continue servicing the local community.  The volunteer firefighters drop whatever they are doing in their private lives to respond to wildland and structure fires, medical aids and even vehicle accidents on Highway 17, every day of the year.


    Mountain Jam 2019

    Mountain Jam will be held again this year on Saturday, September 7th at the Loma Prieta Playfield and Gazebo.  Mountain Jam is a free family music festival and picnic that features local bands and individual performances by young mountain musicians and vocalists.  Proceeds from sale of silent auction items and concessions directly benefit the music program at CT and Loma.  Any student or student music group who is interested in performing should contact Jean Niemann at jeanmullen7146@gmail.com.  Also, any students who want to volunteer the day of the event and earn community service hours should reach out to the same email.
