THE EAGLE FLYER IS ON-LINE! Yes, you, too,
can now read all the news from Sunol Glen School right on your
computer screen. Just go to www.sunol.net, click on Sunol Glen
and then on Eagle Flyer and you're there. And of course for
those of you who prefer your news on newsprint, this column
will continue to keep you up to date on happenings at the center
of the community, our wonderful little school.
That said, it takes longer to put the Eagle Flyer together
for the on-line version, so submissions need to reach the school
office no later than 2:50 p.m. on Monday to be included in Thursday's
newsletter. It is a perfect way to reach all the Sunol Glen
families with announcements of community events and expressions
of gratitude for school volunteers.
BE A BROWNIE OR JUNIOR GIRLSCOUT! The first meeting
of the new school year for Sunol's Brownie and Junior Girl Scout
troops is Wednesday, September 24. Returning scouts should be
contacted soon by their leaders with specific meeting time and
place. Returning Brownies can contact Cathy Morris at 925-862-2350,
while returning Junior Scouts can contact either Lori Nielsen
(925-862-2970) or Victoria Barnes (925-862-0204). If you are

Scouting is open to girls of all ages and if enough girls and

NEWS FROM SUNOL 4-H: The first meeting of the fabulous
Sunol 4-H Club is Thursday (9-11) at 6:30 p.m. in the school
