This week's SPA Spot is now online in the Parent Portal section of our website. In this week's update, we've posted minutes from the April SPA meeting, notes about next week's "Teacher Appreciation Week" and an addition to the May activities calendar.
On Thursday, April 26, this year's Common Ground Speaker Series will conclude with a one-night-only presentation: "The Art of Imperfect Parenting" by Ayelet Waldman. Below is a brief bio on Ms. Waldman and information on her Bay Area appearance.
Get ready for a fun, inspirational evening celebrating parenthood with novelist Ayelet Waldman. Ms. Waldman is a refreshingly candid commentator on the feat of juggling marriage, children and career. She and her husband, novelist Michael Chabon, are a dual career couple with four children. Ms. Waldman, a graduate of Harvard Law School, is author of seven “Mommy Track” mysteries, three novels and the New York Times bestseller, Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities and Occasional Moments of Grace. Note: This is the final event in the 2011-2012 Common Ground Speaker Series.
