As if we needed more examples of how the Petaluma community supports its students, the Petaluma Public Library is hosting a series of seminars to help seniors prepare for college. Events begin September 12th.
Welcome back Gauchos!
Remember, if you need passwords reset, books for assignments, help on homework, or pretty much any other thing you can think of - the Big House Library should be your first stop.
Library hours are from 7:30-3:30 every day.
The only time the library is closed is at lunch on
Otherwise, visit often and stay for a while!
See you in the stacks.
If we want to raise kids to be independent thinkers and change-makers, one of the best things we can do is give them the tools to figure stuff out for themselves.
From "Learning Through Tinkering" by Allison Arief. At this time of the school year we are all doing what we can to get everything in before the last day of school. It's also the time of year when teachers reflect on all the things they did well and all the things they could do better next year (or in my case all the things I totally screwed up this year and will try really, really hard to fix next time).
Next year, Casa is offering new classes for the first time thanks to a bunch of motivated students, teachers, and administrators. Students will have the opportunity to take Intro to Computer Programming, AP Computer Programming, a 3D Sculpture class, access to our new MakerSpace, and Mouse Squad (in its second year).
I found this OpEd inspiring, especially at this time of year, and I hope you do to.
Please, support seniors Maria Morga, Zach Robertson, Nick Quiambao, and Peter Parrick in their efforts to collect necessities for the troops. For more information go to room M-22.
