Berkeley Public Education Foundation Luncheon May 10

I am honored to be joining the board of the Berkeley Public Education Foundation beginning this July. For thirty years, the organization has provided funding to every pre-k through 12th grade school in BUSD, including placing thousands of volunteers in our classrooms. Please join us at the annual luncheon on Friday, May 10. Full details are below from Councilmember Laurie Capitelli's district 5 e-newsletter.

Supporting Our Teachers, Our Schools
What: Berkeley Public Education Foundation Luncheon; a Fundraising Event in Support of Berkeley Public Schools
When: Friday, May 10, 2013. 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Hs Lordships Restaurant on the Berkeley Marina

As a parent and former teacher, I have been a long-time advocate and passionate supporter of our public schools. For almost twenty years I served as a board member of the Berkeley Public Education Foundation (BPEF) and am honored to return each year as the MC for their annual spring luncheon.
The BPEF, through its community volunteers, donations and fundraising efforts, provides significant additional resources for Berkeley’s public schools. Classroom grants awarded directly to teachers fund everything from field trips to science labs to art projects to expanded libraries.
To learn more about the BPEF and its luncheon, please go to the Berkeley Public Education Foundation Spring Luncheon. I hope you can join us.
