Tired of negativity?

Put some good vibe s
in your day with these
positive , uplifting sites:
Happy New Year 2019!

As we reflect back on 2018, many sad, disappointing, infuriating, and fearful images come to mind: devastating wildfires, homelessness, opioid addiction, border conflict, divisive politics, denigrating immigration policies, separated families, and more.
However, it's important to balance
the negative with the positive, such as the passing of Proposition 58 ,
the launching of Global 2030 ,
the implementation of the English Learner Roadmap , the election of Tony Thurmond as the new State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the expansion of Dual Language Immersion programs and the CA Seal of Biliteracy , to name a few.
Need more positivity, hope,
and optimism in your life?
