STUDENT COUNCIL FUNDRAISER FOR THE COREY AND SUTTHITHEPA FAMILIES
Kids, please help Pasta, Summer, and Sawyer’s families by raising money for clothes, food, water and personal items they might have lost. Please bring in any spare change and put it in the decorated coin jars that are in your classroom. This collection ends on the 26th of January.

UPDATE ON THE COREY FAMILY
I met with Dave Corey, the father of Summer, Sawyer and Morgan, this afternoon to give him the many wonderful posters our sixth-grade students created for Summer’s hospital room. The student’s thoughtfulness put a BIG smile on his face. During our visit, Dave gave me permission to share that Summer is getting stronger each day but that they are still “cautiously optimistic”. Summer is able to answer questions with a thumbs-up or down and squeeze a hand. Summer continues to be on a ventilator machine to support her breathing. The doctors and Dave are hopeful that her lungs will continue to heal so they can take her off the machine soon.
Dave also shared the he plans to have a memorial for Sawyer and Morgan that will be open to our school community as soon as Summer is strong enough to attend. Right now, the focus is on getting Summer stronger. Dave thanks our school community for the many prayers and asks that you continue to keep Summer in your prayers.
Our hearts are broken from the loss of these beautiful children from Cold Spring School. Many parents are wondering how they can help the families suffering from such devastation. Below are some gofundme links.
Morgan, Sawyer and Summer Corey Fund Link
This is the official fundraising page of Morgan, Summer and Sawyer Corey. This fundraiser has been created by me, Taylor Owens (Morgan Corey’s biological sister) on behalf of Morgan’s biological parents- David Corey and Teresa Owens. Summer and Sawyer’s biological parents are David Corey and Carie Baker.
Carie Baker Fund Link
This is the OFFICIAL fundraiser for CARIE BAKER-Corey. It has been sanctioned by the Baker family and coordinated by her best friend, Christine LoMonaco. Her loved ones have been non-stop in the hospital since that horrible Tuesday morning that brought the devastating floods to our treasured Montecito.
Sutthithepa Family Fund Link
Established by Mike Caldwell, Oom's Supervisor at Toyota, and while I haven't met Mike, he is clearly compassionate and caring man. These funds will go to Yuphawan (Aw) and Banophoem (Perm).

WHAT’S UP MONTECITO
With Montecito residents evacuated and scattered all across the country, it is a challenge to provide accurate information on the status of the Montecito cleanup and the current Community Recovery Plan. Attached is a synopsis of last night’s first Montecito Community Forum, held at La Cumbre Junior High School.
Also attached is an electronic copy of this week's Montecito Journal editorial report of the flood and its impact on the community. Print copies of the Montecito Journal are available at Santa Barbara newsstand locations.
