Maya Lin Students Meet, Perform with Yo-Yo Ma

Maya Lin School musicians were able to talk, practice, and perform with Yo-Yo Ma last month, when the famed cellist visited the Bay Area as part of his "Culture Connects Us" tour.  You can read about this wonderful meeting of musical minds (and see video of this very moving performance) here.
Haight, LMS to Hold Mock Elections

With the mid-term elections drawing near, some AUSD schools have embarked on their own election activi ties, including voter registration, debates, and a special primary election to possibly choose a new name for Haight Elementary School. We'll cover several of these school events over the next few weeks; the first of this series is here!
Kindergarteners Visit Safety Town

Hundreds of AUSD kindergarteners are visiting the Alameda K Safety Town this year during what is the program's 45th anniversary. Learn more about this miniature town and the characters that teach students about safety here.

Kudos to...
Jennifer Hartigan, an LMS science teacher who had the opportunity to speak at the National Science Teachers' Association conference in Reno last weekend. Ms. Hartigan talked about engaging her students in data analysis and marine careers, as well as the partnerships she and other science teachers have built around Ocean and Environmental Literacy here in Alameda.. . and  ASTI (AUSD's Early College High School) for being named as a school with some of the best SAT scores in the Bay Area in this San Francisco Chronicle article!
