Please plan to attend the upcoming parent education evening hosted by the Belmont Redwood Shores PTA Council. Focused on the Common Core Standards and Technology, topics range from "Test Taking to Tweeting" with our students in an online, technology-oriented world. After the first 30 minutes, the panel discussions will be separated into 2 rooms; one discussion will be with parents of K-4th graders and the other room will focus on topics more relevant to parents of 5th-8th graders.
