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 http://www.msnucleus.org 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
