Message from Mrs. Saunders.......
In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill
proclaiming November 11th as Veterans Day and called upon
Americans everywhere to rededicate themselves to the cause of
peace. He issued a Presidential Order directing the head of the
Veterans Administration, now the Department of Veterans
Affairs, to form a Veterans Day National Committee to organize
and oversee the national observance of Veterans Day.
Tomorrow, we come together as a Nation to thank and honor
Veterans for their service to our country. Tesoro del Valle
Elementary thanks the many Veterans who have served our
country to ensure the security, safety and well being of our
nation.

Prepare Your Property:

disposing of all trash and yard clippings/trimmings in green waste
containers.
If you have a rain barrel, check to make sure the downspouts are clear of

 Visually
inspect retaining wall drains, surface drains,
ditches, etc. for obstructions, or other signs of
malfunction. You should do this after the rain as well.
 As
a precaution, try to avoid having large bare areas
which could be sources for mudflows during a storm.
Add vegetation in these areas that may need it.
Prepare Your Vehicle
 The Lights
o Make sure all the vehicle lights inside and
outside are functioning properly.
o Check vehicle fuses.
 The Tires
o Traction is the key to good movement when turning
and stopping on wet surfaces. The deeper the
tread on your tires, the more water can be
channeled out from under the tire and the more
traction you'll have.
o Check your owner's manual or door frame for the
maximum pressure amount for your tires. Do not
go above that pressure point.
o Make sure to have the same tires on all four
wheels. This will keep your car stable.
o Insure that your spare tire is in good condition and
properly inflated.

The Brakes
o Have the brakes checked by your mechanic.
 The
Windshield Wipers
o Keep the windshield wiper reservoir full.
o Make sure wipers are in good condition (blades

that streak should be replaced). Replace your
windshield wipers at least once a year.
Keep the gas tank half full at all times.
Overall, be careful driving in the rain this season. Drive
slower, maintain a larger distance between you and the next
vehicle, and don't allow any distractions (cell phones, GPS,
radio) to keep you from driving safely!

the program.

*Your purchases are tracked and available to you online, allowing you to see just how much
you are earning on your child's behalf!
