Welcome back and hope you all enjoyed last week’s break. Our next HPC meeting will be on Thursday, March 8, at 8:35 am in Ellen Driscoll (please note the date and time change from the original August calendar). Please join us for an informative and interactive meeting with 2 guest speakers: Sara Lillevand, Piedmont Recreation Director, will provide an update on the Schoolmates Program for next year and ask for input on some outstanding issues, and Piedmont City Council Member Jennifer Cavanaugh, will discuss ongoing work that the City Council and PUSD are doing together. In addition, Anne Dolid will give her Principal’s Report, and we will hear from various board committees. Look forward to seeing you next Thursday.
Preparation for Spring Fling, the annual fundraiser benefiting the 3 elementary schools, is in full swing. The gala will be on Friday, April 20, at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center and will include cocktails, dinner, dancing and a fabulous silent auction. Havens Spring Fling representative Teebie Saunders has been hard at work organizing 2 Havens baskets (one from grades K-2 and the other from grades 3-5), which will be sold at the auction. Please be on the lookout for this week’s Room Parents communication to sign up to donate much-needed items for the baskets. We appreciate your support, and thank you, Teebie, for your leadership!
Thanks and have a great week,
Dana Lung, HPC President
