Tragedies like the one that struck Newtown, Connecticut, on Friday December 14, can affect the lives of adults and children even thousands of miles away.  Children can struggle with events like this in ways that are both visible and imperceptible to those around them.  Attached is a list of suggestions and reminders for parents and teachers from the National Association of School Psychologists designed to help children cope with disasters of this nature.
This holiday season, the best gift you can give your child is a good education. And the best place to get an education is in school. It’s tempting to extend your vacation by a few days, but remember, those days count as absences. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused, can add up to too much lost learning time. So make sure your child is in school every day, right up until vacation starts. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning.

The Union City Library, the Alameda County Library and Math Science Nucleus present Science at the Union City Library for elementary age children. Families are encouraged to attend. No registration required for these free programs, but space is limited.

Time: 1 to 2 pm

Can you help me find my way home?

On Tuesday afternoon, a small, older dog wandered onto the school campus when the gates were opened for parents to pick up their students.

Said one teacher "She looked like she was following a parent. I said 'You can't bring your dog on campus.' and the parent said it wasn't her dog." Another parent noticed her nearby, and that she seemed to be following a jogger, but stated that the jogger also claimed the dog was not hers.  Read More… »»
