Fwd: Campus Project Update

The latest Marin Horizon Head of School has sent an update on the Campus Project.  Despite the fact that I had signed up for updates from the school, I had to send an email to him to ask for the information.

Unfortunately, it was sent as a pdf, and current time, budget and equipment restrictions are limiting our ability to publish the entire letter on this blog.

So, if you would like to read it, I suggest you contact him directly and ask him to send you the letter.

FYI: I first learned of the letter on Nextdoor. I am grateful that at least one neighbor, who sends her children to MHS, is doing what she can to keep us informed.

I will be moving completely out of Homestead soon, so unless you all want to buy our house, and pay me enough to publish this blog between music gigs, it's going to be up to you to keep the lines of communication open. 

Please keep in mind there is no "them," only us. 

Best Regards,

Fwd: A Message to the MVSD Community

Subject: A Message to the MVSD Community

Dear Mill Valley School Community:
It is with heartfelt dismay that I send this communication to recognize the disconcerting actions of hate that occurred within a short period of time in our nation.
Two African American individuals were shot and killed at random at a grocery store in Jeffersontown, Kentucky by a man with a history of mental illness and who was known to use racial slurs in his community. Days later, eleven people were killed while six others were injured when a man shouting anti-Semitic slurs opened fire during services in a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Synagogue.
As the word spreads about these acts of violence, please be aware of the following resources that may be helpful when approaching conversations about hate crimes with your child/children. 
On November 15, 2018 at 7pm join the Mill Valley community for a film screening of A Light in the Darkness, facilitated by Not in Our Town Executive Director Patrice O'Neill. There will be an opportunity to discuss how we can come together as a community, united against hate. Below are community and educational resources provided by the Anti-Defamation League to assist with addressing hate crimes as they come up throughout our community. And lastly, please be aware that in our classrooms across the District we are integrating social emotional curriculum that provides our students with intentional instruction around acceptance, empathy, respect, self-regulation, and more. 
There is no one right way to approach this topic, other than to collectively acknowledge its importance and cultivate building a culture of acceptance, kindness, and understanding.
Thank you in advance for your commitment and support to our community!
With Respect, Raquel Rose

Fwd: Mill Valley School District Design Review Update

Notice the error in listing as Kentfield instead of Tamalpais-Homestead.

Who is to say this is a typo or a deliberate error meant to confuse concerned citizens?  

Thanks to all who showed up to state your concerns about this new "campus" plan for Marin Horizon School.
