Global Citizenship Curriculum: 
not just for social studies anymore
Say "Global Studies," and for a lot of parents, memories of learning how Archduke Franz Ferdinand's assassination sparked World War I might come to mind. But these days, Global Studies encompass far more. And that means exciting additions to the Mill Valley School District curriculum.

Meet Kiddo!-funded Global Studies Education Coordinator 
Rod Septka  and learn how Mill Valley Schools will expand their focus

A Giant Fall Arts Festival Thank You

Last month's Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival was a huge success, and what was most exciting was Kiddo!'s latest contribution: An interactive art table where Kiddo!-funded art teacher Jackie LaLanne helped kids create new art out of pastels and canvas tiles. The results were magnificent, and it wouldn't have been possible without the help of art store Once Around and Friends of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival

Thanks also to Kiddo! Board members Michelle Connolly and Susan Boyle, who worked tirelessly to make everything go smoothly, and to all the volunteers who helped at the Kiddo! Food Booth and the art table this year. For a complete list of all our volunteers, please click here!
