The San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs encourages all PTA members to sign up with Ed100 as a way to learn more about how our California public education system works and to have a chance to win $1,000 for your school PTA. Be sure to add your school name when you create your account so that your PTA gets credit!

 

What is Ed100?

Ed100 has teamed up with California State PTA to provide a practical way for parent leaders, teachers and community members to learn about education issues, one lesson at a time. Ed100 is a free, self-paced online course that prepares you to make a difference in your school or school district. California's education system is complex and changing fast. Ed100 helps you learn what you need to know to be informed, credible and ready for action. Each lesson takes about 5 minutes, in English or in Spanish. Here’s a quick video to explain Ed100 a bit more: https://youtu.be/0Z2XwEbukYU

 

Which lessons should I start with?

Our PTA council has highlighted a few lessons which specifically address topics that have been widely discussed in our San Ramon Valley school communities:

 

Ed100 CHAPTER 8 - Lessons on Taxes and School Funding


How do I win the $1,000 for my PTA?

When you complete a lesson on Ed100 and answer the review question correctly, you earn a ticket for your PTA to be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 prize. The next drawing is on Thursday, December 7th, 2017. Please note: a rule of the $1,000 drawing is that you need to have at least two Ed100 participants from your school. When you sign up for Ed100, you can check the Leaderboard for a list of your school participants.

 

 

We invite you to sign up for Ed100 and start earning those tickets. By using Ed100, your school PTA could be the lucky winner and you'll know even more about our education systems!

Audience: Homepage and For PTA Leaders

Our PTA Council recognizes that your time and efforts for registration planning are critical to making your student programs a success, and we’re here to help! We recently formed a PTA Council Registration Committee to provide support with registration questions, best practices, system support, membership, online PTA waivers, FERPA and school directories. We would like to invite all registration chairs to a roundtable discussion to connect with other school registration volunteers and experienced leaders. If your school does not have a registration chair, we'd love to have the PTA President or EVP attend.

Friday, May 5th, 9:00am - 11:00am

Audience: For PTA Leaders

 

The extra gift in having had two glorious weeks of relaxation and rejuvenation is the awareness that regular self care is what will keep us feeling this refreshed throughout the year.  Eating more healthily, becoming more active, finding time to do something for oneself are all common new year list toppers.  One health booster that we all enjoy, that won't require anything extraordinary in our lifestyle is laughter!  Who are you around when you find yourself laughing? What are you doing? Where are you?  Seek out laughter...it's good for you!

 

I hope you enjoy this article on the benefits of laughter (link below).

 

The next time you are able to make the choice to see some comedy, watch a funny show, spend time with a good-humored friend, or laugh at your own folly, DO!
