PAUSD Parent Ed Event, "Help! My Kid is Being Bullied: A Teach-In for Parents on Identifying Indicators of Bullying Behavior and Navigating Through School Procedures" 
When:  Tuesday, May 7, 7-8:30pm
Where: Greene Middle School, MP Room
Please join us at Greene Middle School on May 7th, where PAUSD Civil Rights & Legal Affairs Coordinator, Robert Andrade, will share information about what bullying is under PAUSD policy, and where to go when your child may be experiencing bullying behaviors. Some important topics Mr. Andrade will discuss are: Cyberbullying and the impact of student phone/internet usage; free speech protective language limitations; special education and what happens when students affected have an IEP; and PAUSD school site protocols when addressing reports of bullying.

Green Tip: Keep Celebrating Earth Month!
Earth Day is over, but we can continue to celebrate and support our planet Earth:

  • Our city’s local events and Earth Day activities or fairs are continuing throughout the year - get involved and consider making an ongoing or longer-term commitment.

  • Keep walking and rolling - how many car trips can you cut down? Try pooling trips, bike/walk/take public transit, or use an app like RouteXL to find an efficient route.

  • Continue to visit the Earth Week Activity Center with games and activities, and learn more.

  • Follow up on an Earth Pledge and take action (it's not too late to make a pledge if you haven't!)

  • Keep spending time outdoors, make small steady changes, and reusable party packs for events (and reusables in your life).

The Earth is here for us every single day, we can be here for our world, too.


Community Events

Volunteer Opportunity for Parents (as little as 1 hour per week)
Did you know that we live right next door to a school district where: 
* 88% of students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged households? 
* 46% of students are housing insecure?
* 44% of students are more 3 grade levels below their current grade in Reading and Math?
Come to our information session on May 8th to learn how you can help tutor these students during the school day. Information here: RSVP via email to To see the impact from a current teacher's perspective, watch this 3-minute video:
