A few odds and ends going into the weekend, because there is so much going on but so little time.
Ruby Bridges Elementary School is holding its annual Gospel Concert which is a fundraiser for the 5th grade sleep over Science Camp, this year the 5th graders need to raise money to send 100 5th graders to this awesome three day, two night experience. That means that they need to raise $18,000 and to sell out the Kofman Auditorium they would be able to raise $15,000 of that $18,000. Tickets are only $15 each and the show is apparently super awesome. Click the link for more information. The show is next Saturday, January 26 starting at 7:00 p.m.
Since I’m still on the schools issue, the School Board also on Tuesday night voted to accept the 2013-2014 calendar that AEA selected. So there is a 2013-2014 calendar already, yay! This one:
Edited to add: here is a cleaner version of the calendar for nifty downloading and saving for vacation planning.
More school stuff, the District Staff has moved into their new offices at 2060 Challenger Driver, at the last School Board meeting there was a question about whether people could come and tour the offices if they wanted to, the answer was yes, but they’d like you to call first, but I’m sure if you just show up they won’t turn you away either. Edited to add, call this number: 337-7000, according to AUSD the Maintenance and Facilities department will schedule the tours.
And I keep forgetting but the City has a new website design, yay! x 100, you can preview it here and the City asks that you submit any comments you have. On first glance, I like it, it’s very simple and straightforward and that’s really all you want. Did I mentioned that it was designed by a local outfit: Superclean Web Designs as well? Which makes it 100 times better than the current website. Take a look at it.
Oh, also, Old Navy has started giving out plastic bags again. I guess they realized that — as a commenter here pointed out — the ban was not for retail stores.
