Coffee Meetup Tomorrow - Friday May 13th, 8:45am
Our last meetup went so well, I decided to schedule a 2nd one. If your schedule allows, swing by Contra Costa Coffee in Walnut Creek between 8:45am-10:30am tomorrow. Let’s connect!
The month of May is full of celebrations in our public schools, including:
- May 1st School Principals Day
- May 2-6th National Teacher Appreciation Week & School Nutrition Employee Week
- May 6th School Lunch Hero Day
- May 11th CA Day of the Teacher, National School Nurse Day
- May 15-21st Classified School Employee Week
- May 18th National Speech Pathologist Day
Though I wasn’t able to keep up with each specific day, I want you to know how much I appreciate every single employee of our district for the dedication you each bring to your part of creating quality public education for all students. Thank you!!

Teamwork makes the Dream Work
I had the opportunity to be on 2 teams this week:
On Saturday my "New Kids on the Bocce" team raised $ for the Mt Diablo Education Foundation
and yesterday I got to cut and bend rebar with this team of Mt Diablo High students at the Habitat for Humanity Esparanza Place building site in Walnut Creek. I love power tools, and seeing how much more we can get done together than any one person can do alone!
