Santa Margarita’s Running Club
I am looking for dedicated volunteers who can help restart our school-wide running club. Essentially what happens is students complete laps around a coned area on the grass field by running, walking, etc. The running club welcomes any students who want to get some exercise before school starts (8:30-8:55). Volunteers will help supervise the course, stamp students’ hands after they complete each lap, and record students’ total laps. If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail me the days/times you are available, and I will give you more details regarding when we plan to start the running club.

Emotional Homecoming and Reunion for Brothers and Father
It wasn’t what they were expecting! Brothers David and Adam McIntyre of Santa Margarita Elementary School were shocked to see their father, Staff Sergeant David McIntyre, suddenly appear from the principal's office on Tuesday. Sgt. McIntyre had been deployed in Afghanistan the past seven months. His wife Nicky, an instructional aide with OUSD, got a helping hand from Principal Jessica Poumele in surprising the boys. Watch the emotional reunion in the video posted above.
