    Help Kids in Grades K-5 with Reading, Writing, Math Next Year – You Could Change a Life

    Sign up to volunteer in September to work with K-5 students attending school in East Palo Alto and eastern Menlo Park. Just an hour a week, and you can make a real difference in a student’s life. You’ll go to the same classroom for an hour every week during the school year to help with reading or math. Studies show that you will make real change in a community where over 80% of students are performing below grade level. All Students Matter provides training and coordinates everything. For more details or to sign up, visit www.allstudentsmatter.org or contact Program Director Keri Tully at keri@allstudentsmatter.org

    Is your rising 6th, 7th, or 8th grader planning to ride to Middle School in the Fall?

    June 8th, June 22nd and July 28th

    Wheel Kids, together with the City of Menlo Park, have created a Menlo Park-specific Middle School Bike Skills parent/child class. The weekend morning class has three parts: in class instruction, blacktop practice and an on the road ride. Kids (and their parent - participation required), will learn how to navigate alongside traffic and through busy intersections to get around Menlo Park safely. We can not recommend this class enough!
