Softball & Pizza Clinic for kindergarten, 1st grade & 2nd grade GIRLS (bring your friends!)

We encourage all K-2 players, interested in finding out more about this fun sport, to come to our clinic on Nov. 8th at Coaches Field. The clinic will be run by Sharon Perkins, a talented coach from the Alameda Blaze tournament program, along with several PHS varsity softball players. We will offer fun drills, contests, and a little scrimmage play. Pizza and ice cream will be served at the end.

It’s Cool to Walk to School!

Posted by Len Gilbert on October 6, 2009

Reminder: On October 7th, schools around the world will celebrate:

International Walk to School Day.


Whether your school is celebrating it or not, the day provides a great opportunity to “find another way to school”. Whether walking, biking, on the bus, or carpooling, the trip gives you the chance to have a conversation with kids about transportation options, safety, the environment… or maybe you’ll just enjoy the extra bonding time.

For more information on Walk to School Day, contact Nora Cody – Director of Alameda County’s Safe Routes to Schools program – at SR2S@transformca.org or call (510) 740-3150.
