On Monday February 4, our students will have the opportunity to hear from Evelyne Keomian, founder of Karat School Project, at our Core Values assembly. The Karat School Project is an organization that provides education, meals, and other urgently needed necessities to children living in extreme poverty in Ivory Coast, West Africa. Their goal is to break to cycle of extreme poverty through the power of education, so that future generations can foster sustainable economic development. As always, parents are welcome to attend. (K-2: 8:45-915am & grades 3-5: 9:30-10am)
Jason Caldwell is a world-record holding athlete and Bay Area native who decided to recruit and train a four-man team for the world’s toughest race: a 3,000 mile unassisted rowing competition across the Atlantic Ocean. Jason will share his story of perseverance, cooperation, and resilience in a presentation to our students at a Core Values assembly on Thursday, October 18th, 9:15am. Parents are welcome to attend.
Bryan Stow, who uses his personal story to speak out against bullying, will address our students in Core Values assemblies on Friday, September 14th. Grades K-2 will attend at 9:15 a.m., and grades 3-5 will attend at 10:50 a.m. Parents are welcome to attend and encouraged to continue the conversation with their children about being an ‘upstander’. As Bryan is donating his time, we thought it would be a nice gesture to make a contribution to his foundation. If you’d like to join us in contributing, you can do so here.
