Our longest standing Panther Run Sponsor, Santa Fe Mountain Sports, announced this past weekend that they are going out of business.

Booth/Webber Traffic Changes
PLEASE NOTE: The city installed signs and street striping over the summer, police officers will begin enforcing the parking changes this school year. These changes are the result of many meetings, lots of though and discussion on alternatives, and should provide better traffic flow as well as much improved safety for the children. Summary of changes that will happen:
- Stopping for loading/unloading is only allowed on the school-side of Booth and Webber. NO STOPPING OR PARKING is allowed on the playground side of Booth, or the residential side of Webber.... at any time.
- Signs are posted along the south side of Booth, and the East side of Webber to indicate 'no parking'.
- a double-yellow stripe was added between traffic lanes, and a shoulder stripe on the school side to clearly identify 'stop and drop/pickup' areas on the school-side of the streets.
- Parents wanting to Park and leave their vehicles are required to use either the Auxiliary Lot at Webber/Buena Vista, the Church Lot, or residential streets where permitted.
We are hopeful that people will change their routes voluntarily, and make the short detour up to Buena Vista if need be rather than entering from Don Gaspar. It would really help if we could ALL treat Booth as a one-way from East (Webber) to West (Don Gaspar)...

Thanks to the many parents/guardians who volunteer weekly to assist our teachers and students. You are appreciated!
Remember that students are dismissed at 12:30 every Friday. Promptly picking up your children enables teachers to have more time to plan for quality instruction.
I appreciate the many students who arrive at school on time every day unless they are sick. Thanks, parent/Guardians! Wood Gormley received a certificate from the District for a 95% attendance rate for the month of December!
Continue to drive slowly and safely around the school.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your children's lives!
