Donate gently used clothing to support J Serra

J Serra is partnering with Schoola (www.schoola.com). What’s Schoola? It’s a great way to raise funds for our school. Schoola collects pre-loved women's and children’s clothes, preps and sells them online, and gives 40% of the proceeds back to J Serra to help fund programs for our kids. That’s $2 out of every $5 earned back to our school! Simply click on the image to view our very own Schoola landing page where you can request a bag and view our progress and funds earned.



Support J. Serra all year long through Amazon, eScrip, or Box Tops

Help J Serra raise donations from Amazon by starting at Amazon Smile before each visit. Amazon Smile has the same products and prices by the Amazon Smile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price to J Serra. Note: The confirmation page will say you're supporting "Pta California Congress Of Parents Teachers & Students Inc," the registered name for the J Serra PTA bank account.

Another option is to use eScrip, a free way to donate to J Serra with each trip to Safeway! Sign up for eScrip (free) and then Safeway will donate a little to the school from each trip you make to the store at no cost to you. (Sobre eScrip en espanol)


And while you're shopping, remember that every box with a Box Tops for Education logo should be clipped (by your kids!) and brought into the school office.

Grandparents are often happy to collect for the school as well, so be sure to give them some homework, too!

Technology at J. Serra

J. Serra Tech Blog

Our blog is used to distribute curriculum that is correlated with classroom teaching and learning. Check out the Web Site:ClaxFactor.

Ms. Claxton's ELD used an educational version of ZimmerTwins when studying Rocks and Minerals. See their work in the ZimmerTwins Gallery.

Chinese New Year's at J. Serra. Gung Hay Fat Choy!

To enhance 4th/5th Grader's science studies on Rocks and Minerals, students used iPads to design an iMovie on a field trip to the Apple Store in San Francisco! They worked in teams of two, used a storyboard to plan out their scenes and videotaped each other stating facts about Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rocks! Oral presentations in the theater really showcased their hard work. Thank you, Apple crew for a great learning experience!
