Communications

Stay Connected with our school and the PTA

The sections below describe various ways for families to stay connected with our school and to know what’s going on. Please take a minute and sign up for all the digital communications and stay informed.

Communications Tool

The Dolores Huerta Elementary PTA would like to have a single communication tool for the entire school — something used by every class, every teacher, the PTA, ELAC, Room Reps, basically the whole community.

In that spirit, this year we are piloting a school communication app called Bloomz.

If you haven’t received an invitation or an access code from your teacher, or if you’d like to help out, please contact the Communications Team at:
communications@wearedoloreshuerta.com

Google Calendar

Our Google Calendar is another great way to stay informed about upcoming events. We post all school-wide events to the calendar, including PTA meetings, Rinconcito’s, fundraisers, etc.

Be sure to subscribe to our Google calendar, so you never miss an event.

Newsletter

The Dolores Huerta Falcon is our monthly newsletter in English & Spanish, which is emailed around the 1st of every month. We promote events, show PTA dollars in action, and provide other important information.

We also print paper copies, which are available at the Monthly “Rinconcito” event and in the school office.

Facebook Group and Page

If you’re on Facebook, our Facebook Page is where we post information about school events, fundraise, and promote the school. Be sure to like this page.

We also have a Facebook Group where our community posts pictures, ideas, news, and anything else they’d like to share. Ask to join this group and say that you’re a Dolores Huerta parent.

Yahoo Group

Our Yahoo Group is a moderated, private list for last minute reminders and parent-to-parent communication. Typically you can expect 3-4 emails per week.

Request access to the group and say that you are a Dolores Huerta parent. The group admin typically grants access in a day or two.

Old School Communications

Occasionally, you will also receive information from your teacher “stuffed” into your child’s backpack. This includes things like field trip permission slips, sign-up forms, etc.

We also strive for each classroom to have at least one Room Rep (formerly Room Parent), who coordinates classroom events and volunteer opportunities, disseminates information, and serves as the liaison between teacher and parents.

There are also a few bulletin boards outside the main office, where information is posted about the PTA, SSC, ELAC, extended care, and community events.

We also strategically place “sandwich boards” around the school for special announcements.
