After School Activities Coordinator Needed
Do your children love their after school activities? Do you love picking them up later on in the day, after the carpool madness is over? Our wonderful After School Activities coordinator has had to step down, and we need someone to replace her for the rest of the year.
 
The largest part of the job has already been completed, and 90% of it can be done from home. You would be responsible for:
  • setting the Spring schedule on Google docs/the school website and sharing with Pam Garcia
  • interfacing with the vendors
  • sending out scholarship letters to eligible students and matching requests with spots
  • helping the kinders get to their first class of Spring session
If you're interested, please contact Erin or Winnie. Thank you!

Coming Up...

Hillview Speakers Series
Documentary: "The Mask You Live In" followed by Q&A with Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom
Hillview Middle School, PAC
Monday, March 2
6:30 p.m.

Hillview's Speaker Series is honored to welcome the award-winning documentarian and Second Lady of California, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, to the Hillview PAC on Monday, March 2, at 6:30 p.m.
 
Commended for her groundbreaking documentary exploring the impact of the media's portrayal of girls in Miss Representation, Ms. Newsom now takes on gender stereotypes and the miseducation of our young boys in The Mask You Live In. Only weeks after its national release, Ms. Newsom is bringing her powerful new film to Menlo Park for YOU! Following the viewing of this film, Ms. Newsom will share the story behind the film and answer audience questions.
 
The evening will likely run a little longer than most of our Parent Ed events in order to accommodate the film (which runs 90 minutes) and time with Ms. Newsom. We will begin at 6:30 p.m. sharp. Because the event is likely to fill up quickly, we suggest you arrive no later than 6:15 p.m. to secure a seat.

Click here for this year's line up of speakers. These events are open to all district parents and community members, and they take place in the Hillview Performing Arts Center. Free childcare is provided on-site for all potty trained children. For more information, contact Jennifer Allen.
