GALACTIC GALA CHILDCARE

On the night of the Galactic Gala our Otis PTA babysitters have organized a "Milky Way Movie Night" in the Otis MPR from 5:30-11:30pm. These local Alameda babysitters are truly shining stars and will provide a safe evening complete with dinner, various activity stations and two movie showings. Dress your mini space explorers in comfy clothes and send them with a sleeping bag and pillow. The cost is $30/kid and space is limited. Kids must be between 3-11 years old. Be sure to purchase a spot along with your Galactic Gala tickets.

 

PREVIEW AUCTION ART @ ART A LA MODE

Before being auctioned at the Galactic Gala, each classroom's 2018 Collaborative Art Piece will debut at Art a la Mode on April 19.
