Thursday, March 1st - Observing Women's Month

Women's History Month begins: Did you know that as recently as the 1970’s, Women’s History was virtually an unknown topic in the K-12 curriculum or in general public consciousness or that the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women initiated a “Women’s History Week” celebration for 1978? And then there were the initial steps taken in 1980 by President Carter, who issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8th 1980 as National Women’s History Week.

Walker Creek Family Evening, Vallecito Elementary School, 6:00-7:00, Gym - Stop by and listen in on what our 5th grade students will be experiencing this year for their outdoor education program.

K-3 students walk through the Science Fair MPR in the AM. 4th and 5th grade students will be stationed there ready to explain their projects to them. Pretty darn cute stuff but beneath it all, we are preparing our primary children for this experience, interacting with Science in new and creative ways.
