AUSD's Technology and Student Services staff, as well as the district's translators, for helping dozens of families at our multilingual back-to-school registration event on August 7. Many families had questions; our staff did a wonderful job helping them! Many thanks, too, to Alameda's League of Women Voters, who sent volunteers to help parent/guardians register to vote.

Wood Middle School teacher Pamela Schaffer, who spent 10 days this
summer aboard a NOAA ship as part of the agency's Teacher at Sea program. While on board the Bell M. Shimada, Ms. Schaffer worked with scientists as they conducted an ecosystem survey off the northern and central California coast.
"Through my experience with NOAA, my students will not only be able to learn first-hand about exciting research projects at sea, they will be witnesses to them, and on some level, participants in them," she says. "Making their learning relevant through my own hands-on experiences is vital to getting students excited about science."
Ms. Schaffer wrote a blog
detailing her experience this summer. Please take a look to learn about the exciting work she did
