1 palo alto – Greene

PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO): In the South Bay, an S.O.S. from Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) schools to parents: The district is looking for volunteers to fill spots left empty by staffing shortages and COVID-19 absences.

The push, called 1 Palo Alto, will put parent volunteers on campuses across the district beginning Wednesday (Jan 12 2022). PAUSD is asking parents to step up and fill support staff positions including assistance with the COVID Testing Clinic, food services, light custodial work, office assistance, and classroom support.

Here’s what our Community is doing at Greene Middle School – ABC7 News Report on 01/12/2022. (Please forgive the ads).

Bike Safety

Our PTA Council Bike Safety rep did a count and counted exactly 500 bicycles! WOW – That is over half of our student population! 

From time to time, the Greene PTA will publish eNews articles and (hopefully soon!) host events to help educate our students on safety and to reinforce good riding habits, including how to safely share the road (not sidewalks!) with other cyclists and cars.

This week: Helmets are required by law for any riders under the age of 18. In order to comply with the law and in order to protect your student’s brain, a helmet must be worn properly on the rider’s head. They do not work properly when they are swinging from the handlebars. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/driver-education-and-safety/special-interest-driver-guides/bicyclists-pedestrians/

P.E. Uniforms

Deadline extended! There is still time to order your student’s uniform. Orders will be shipped directly to your home. https://www.bsnteamsports.com/shop/coJ4Qmughm

The school’s physical education program allows each student the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities that are developmentally appropriate for their grade level. Greene Middle School requires that all students dress for P.E. wearing the school’s P.E. uniform. All students are assigned a P.E. locker and change from their school clothes into the Greene P.E. uniform for their P.E. class, and then back again into their school clothes after class.
