We are Ocean Guardians at Earhart Elementary!
The health of our oceans is vital to the health of all living things on Earth. As the temperature rises, sea levels rise along with it. This makes the ocean environment more acidic, which disrupts the delicate balance of life on earth. Even more alarming, we now know that human-made pollutants such as plastics are contaminating our oceans. Plastics unfortunately do not disappear, but rather break down into minuscule particles. Sea animals ingest these particles, thus putting all life on the planet in serious turmoil.
As Ocean Guardians, we here at Earhart aim to do everything we can to interrupt this cycle as a community. Our first goal is to create awareness of our consumption of single-use plastics at school. Those single use plastics are a noticeable cause of much of the plastic contaminating our oceans. We hope to become as waste-free as possible. That means avoiding our reliance on single-use plastics in our lunches and snacks. We will work together in the classrooms, at home, and in the community to be as proactive as possible to help protect our oceans from the dangers of plastics. As Ocean Guardians, saving the planet starts with all of us. Go Green Earhart
🚶 Parking / Traffic
The school year is in full swing, so it’s about time for a friendly traffic/parking reminder.There is no parking inside the drop-off circle, unless you are escorting a student in our Special Day Class or with a handicapped placard, or after 8:30 am if you are escorting a TK student.
DO NOT ENTER THE STAFF PARKING LOT unless you are using the accessible parking spaces and have a placard. You are not allowed to use the staff lanes as secondary loading zone! Our school staff needs access to this lane in order to be on time for our students.
The White Curb on Packet Landing is for active unloading of children. You must stay with your car. 2 minute maximum stay at the curb. Turning on your flashers and parking is NOT allowed.
Do not park at the Red Painted Curbs on either side of the street or block the Fire Lanes for the neighboring communities.
If you need to escort your child into school, PARK LEGALLY
If you are waiting for another person after they have escorted a student into campus, you must park legally off campus. Do not wait for them either in the circle or on the Packet Landing White Curb.
Please let all caregivers know these rules. Thank you to everyone for understanding, cooperating and making our morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up routine run as safely and smoothly as possible!
Ocean Guardians: Go Green
Our mission is to protect the delicate balance of our ecosystem. By reducing the amount of waste that goes into our landfills or that blows into the oceans.
As students and family, we can make an effort to do our part as ocean guardians.

Wear Red for Ed!
As the school year begins, the Alameda Education Association (teacher’s union) is back at the bargaining table with AUSD fighting for a competitive wage. As a symbol of their dedication and lasting stamina to demand a fair wage, teachers plan to WEAR RED every Wednesday. After school, they will gather by our Amelia Earhart statue to take a photo that will be sent to school board members and district administrators. PLEASE JOIN US in supporting our wonderful Earhart teachers and all teachers across the island who will make the same stand on their school campus. Just a reminder that our teachers receive the lowest pay in all of Alameda County. Simply put most can not afford to live here and work here which means we lose many, bright, dedicated, inspiring teachers to other nearby districts. If you are on campus after school on Wednesday, please join us in the photo and help us show that our wonderful Earhart staff is supported by parents and students.
Earhart PTA Membership Drive
Contribute to the Donation Drive and Join PTA!
Dear Earhart Families,
Our annual membership drive is in full swing and we are so impressed by the generosity of our Earhart families! By donating to the Annual Donation Drive and becoming a PTA member, you directly affect and benefit your child's school experience. PTA helps to bring much more than just the "basics" to our high-quality education at Earhart Elementary School. Remember, if we reach our fundraising and membership goal, we will have a school wide PIZZA PARTY!!! Also, every class that has 100% PTA membership will receive a special surprise!
Using our online system, Membership Toolkit, you will also be registered in and gain access to our online directory! This is a useful tool for our community, but it is easy to opt-out during registration if you prefer. If you have any questions or comments, please contact: Earhart PTA Membership .

Join the Earhart Bike Train!
What is it?
Safe Routes to Schools defines it best. “Bike trains are groups of parents and kids who ride together from the same neighborhood along a designated route…. Adults share the responsibility of getting the kids to school safely, which saves time for all of them, and the kids get exercise that helps them focus in school.”
Why should you join the Earhart Bike train?
Meet your neighbors
Help the environment
Why should you join the Earhart Bike train?
Parents and children will meet at 8:00AM SHARP at the corner of Mecartney and Island Drive.
Two or three parents (depending on how large the train becomes) will ride to school with all the children.
It’s that simple!
If you’re interested in joining the bike train, please contact Lisa Bryant to show your interest.
A/V Support Needed
Did you know that Earhart volunteers record every student performance on campus?
Our dedicated A/V team uses professional equipment to record each performance, then edits and posts those videos to the secure Science Lab website. This means as parents, we can simply sit back and enjoy the moment!
Each grade has multiple classes and performances and this is a BIG job that shouldn't fall on one or two sets of shoulders. We are asking for volunteers from each grade to signup to run the equipment in order to share the load.
If this is something you may be interested in, please reach out to our A/V Support Chair, Archie Tingle, for more information.
