School Calendar Survey

Posted by Len Gilbert on February 22, 2011

The Associated Parents Clubs of Piedmont (APCP) has a new survey to gather your thoughts and opinions on the school calendar and the process to develop that calendar. Related items such as minimum days and conference schedules are included in the survey. Who should have input and how much input? What do you think? Shorter summer or start school after Labor Day? Is 4 days enough for “ski week”?

The letter and information about the survey is below.


Dear Piedmont Parents,

We invite you to participate in the 2011 Calendar Survey. Your feedback will help future planning for some of the different aspects of Piedmont’s academic calendar and school schedules. It should only take 5-10 minutes of your time to complete – we’d love to hear from you.

Here’s the link: (The link is available in an email sent by your child’s school to all parents) The survey will remain open from now until next Tuesday, March 1.

Thank you for your time and input!

Everybody Has a Story: An Evening of Improv Theatre Celebrating Our Connections and Our Differences

Posted by Len Gilbert on October 22, 2010

“Everybody Has a Story: An Evening of Improv Theatre Celebrating Our Connections and Our Differences.” This FREE show takes place on Friday, October 29 at 7 p.m. in the Alan Harvey Theater at 800 Magnolia Ave.

This event is sponsored by the Piedmont Appreciating Diversity Committee (PADC) and PPN. Other supporters include the City of Piedmont, Piedmont Unified School District, Piedmont Asian American Club, Piedmont Educational Foundation, GATE, PRAISE, and The Wellness Center.  A flyer is attached with more information.

A brief recap for those who may not be familiar with the work of The Living Arts Playback Theatre Ensemble (http://www.livingartscenter.org/ ): Playback Theatre transforms personal stories told by audience members into theater pieces using movement, ritual, music, and spoken improvisation. A few of the topics that surfaced during the 2009 performance included storylines about dating a person of another race, coping with family members of different socio-economic levels, and the difficulties of holding unpopular political beliefs. Audience members are invited to bring a story to share or watch the drama unfold. This event is appropriate for ages 10 and up. A casual reception will follow the show in the lobby.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Please feel free to either e-mail Jeff Porter (jgport@pacbell.net) or Mahvash Hassan (mahvash_hassan@yahoo.com) with any questions about this event.
