SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2014 @ SFPL
DETAILS TO COME
Shared Savings provides not only the incentive for increasing energy efficient behavior in our schools, but the tools for making sure it happens. Bringing in that curriculum piece, allowing students to participate in and learn from our efforts to make our schools more efficient, will help educate a generation of energy conscious citizens. In the age of climate change, that is an extremely valuable outcome.

Community community meetings for PEEF and Children's Fund

Remember these funds have provided critical resources for our children and students covering everything from preschool instruction to high school libraries, such as Teacher/School Librarians and Library programs, Physical Education, Music and Arts, Athletics, Wellness Centers, etc.).
When the PTA publishes documents, such as the APG Communications FAQs and Tips and the Restorative Practices Bulletin, the documents will be placed in the Homepage and the Parent group lockers.
