Exciting news from the Media Center! We are using Makerbot technology! Our Teacher Librarian, Connie Chapman, will be showing students how to use building and design software to create things on a Makerbot 3D printer. We're the first elementary school in Alameda to use this new technology!
Thanks to Ms. Chapman and Rob Westlund for making this happen. Check it out!
District Volunteer Fingerprinting Procedures
Eager to join your child's class on the fun field trip their teacher has scheduled? Want to volunteer as your child's class's Art Docent?
Don't forget that you need to be registered with Livescan beforehand. Any volunteers who may supervise students outside the presence of certified staff must go through this procedure.
Click here to read AUSD's Livescan Procedures for Volunteers and remember that it will take some time, so don't leave it for the last minute!
