Our students and families enjoyed another great Red Ribbon Week Celebration this year!  Thank you to Jamba Juice, Yogurt & Love, Pizza My Heart, and Whole Foods for their generous discounts, give aways, and support of healthly life styles in our community.  Thank you to the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department and Los Gatos Library Book mobile for joining the celebration at the Whole Foods event.  Spirit dress up days and special school events were held at our elementary through High School.  The message of YOLO so make healthy choices was demonstrated throughout town.
