There are many ways, in addition to this web site, that the school and the PPTG will communicate with parents, as well as parents communicating with each other:

Peralta Broadcast

The Peralta Broadcast is a bi-weekly e-mail newsletter with Peralta, PPTG and Community news. And usually a fun little contest, for those who like that sort of thing.  Pictures of your kids, almost always. We try to have a good time writing it. We want you to want to read it. 

  • How to Subscribe : Please enter your email address (name optional) in the form and click the Subscribe button.
  • Do you have something for the Broadcast? - The Peralta Broadcast is sent every other Tuesday that school is in session. Please send news or information you believe would interest the Peralta community. Note that we do not publish information about lessons, classes or summer camps — the Peralta Community Yahoo Group does, however. If you have anything to include in the Broadcast, please email us. We also take suggestions. 
  • Unsubscribing - Each and every Peralta Broadcast email includes an Unsubscribe button. If you click this, the email address will NEVER again be able to receive the Broadcast without you personally updating your subscription. From the Broadcast email, click on the “Manage your subscription” link to view a Web page where you can unsubscribe from the list or change the email address at which you receive the Broadcast.
