Good afternoon –
I wanted to be sure to get you this info, about a couple of activities happening Tuesday May 29 that may be of interest. One is a public meeting/open house about the potential for a regional desalination project, and the other is an info meeting about a charter school option coming to the Sequoia Union High School District. Please read on!
Info Meeting on Joint Regional Desalination Project
Since 2003, five of the Bay Area’s major water agencies – the Contra Costa Water District, the East Bay Municipal Utility District, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, the Santa Clara Valley Water District and Zone 7 Water Agency — have been exploring the potential for a joint regional desalination project that could provide an additional water source, diversify the area’s water supply, and foster long-term regional sustainability.
A public meeting and open house to learn about this project is being held on May 29th at 6 pm. Information will include the results of studies conducted by the agencies, what the next steps in the project are and how you can become involved.
A presentation and question and answer period will be followed by an Open House featuring agency representatives who can address any particular questions or concerns:
May 29, 2012 6 – 8 pm Redwood City Hall Council Chambers 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City
AGENDA: 6 – 7 pm: Presentation on the project background, current status, planned activities, followed by Q&A 7 – 8 pm: Open house format so you can speak to agency representatives and talk more specifically about different aspects of the project including environmental impacts and the project planning process

SEQUOIA BIG PICTURE HIGH SCHOOL: INFORMATION NIGHT
Tuesday, May 29, 7:00 p.m. Fair Oaks Community Center 2600 Middlefield Road, Redwood City FREE Admission and Refreshments
Parents, students and community members are invited to learn about the Sequoia Big Picture High School (SBPHS), an exciting new charter school option coming to the Sequoia Union High School District!
Big Picture Schools are based on individualized learning, where each student explores his/her own passions and affinities (“one student at a time”). Parents play a key role in the Big Picture School experience, and students experience real-world learning through internships in the community.
SBPHS is part of a national network of Big Picture Schools (www.bigpicture.org). There are now more than 100 Big Picture Schools in the United States and abroad. President Obama has called Big Picture Learning a “model for educating students.” Big Picture Learning works!
