Wednesday Envelopes

WHY:  The primary method Rosa Parks uses to send home printed material is through the “Wednesday envelope,” which is a big sturdy envelope that is sent home with every child each Wednesday.

WHAT:  Only non-commercial, Rosa Parks-related material may be sent home.  If there is a question about whether your flyer is appropriate to send home, please clear it with Principal Furlan first.

HOW: Put the right number of flyers in each teacher’s box and they will make sure the flyers get into the Wednesday envelopes.  Feel free to put a cover note to the teacher explaining what the flyer is and thanking them for including it.  If you want them to announce the flyer to their students, mention this in the cover note.

You are welcome to use the Rosa Parks copier for PTA-related flyers, but please avoid peak hours (8:30 – 9 or 11-1).  You must use your own paper.  If it is a PTA flyer, you can use the PTA paper (and paper clips), which are on the shelves below the staff mailboxes.

Anything sent home should be translated into Spanish.  Contact Kelly Besman (kbesman@yahoo.com or 510-847-7907) if you need assistance with translation.  Or, you can provide the right number of flyers in each language, as noted on the chart below.

WHEN:  You should aim to have the flyers in the mailboxes as early as possible, but no later than 3pm on Tuesday in order to ensure they go out in the next day’s envelopes.

HOW MANY: Below is a list of the number of English and Spanish speaking students in each class.  Be sure to include one extra flyer for the teacher, and leave a few extra with Alicia in the office.  If you are making flyers for every child, you will need 460 plus extras for the teachers.  [Note: The below information is for the 2012-2013 school year. We will post the information for the 2013-2014 school year when the classrooms are all settled.]
