"programme" with an extra "me". So hoity toity.

Not hoity toity. It's the correct usage.

Is it safe to assume that this program is not in compliance with Common Core? If not, then it'sRead More probably a good thing.

Noah, read what I said again. It is not the police who err on the side of caution. The police useRead More probable cause to make an arrest. If PC does not exist, they do not arrest. It is you and I and everyone else that needs to err on the side of caution and distance ourselves from a person labeled as a pedophile after they have been arrested. If they are later exonerated, then it is far easier to welcome them back to normal society than it is to try and explain how they were supported in their most heinous of activities and given the benefit of the doubt they didn't deserve.

Was the Livermore Charter School accused employee a friend of the kids golf coach employed at losRead More positas golf course? That pediphile was put in Santa Rita jail during 2014 as a pediphile? Los Positas golf course is 100% owned by the taxpayers of city of Livermore. Aren't we proud.

Yes, thanks Monica! We fixed it to reflect.

I was one of the 29% that voted against this tax. I believe that everyone should be responsible forRead More the education of our children not just the people who own homes. This tax "hits" only home owners! Many of the families who benefit from this money do not pay their fair share to educate their children. I remember the "sales pitch" years ago to legalize the lottery was that it would "solve" the financial challenges that our schools were facing. But it was just another way to generate more funds for the politicians to spend. While $138 is not going to break the bank I believe that in the future they will have their hands in our pockets looking for more. But that's just my opinion and it looks like I'm in the minority.... (:>)

Anonymous, I hear you on this, but people who don't own homes and probably own a crappy car, have noRead More money. Even if they did, how do you tax them? What do you attach the tax to? So instead of a parcel tax it is... a sales tax, income tax, or what? Just curious...

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

"In the evening from 4:00pm-5pm, community members are invited to a celebration in LivermoriumRead More Plaza at Mills Square Park." I'm sorry for being dense, but I'm not familiar with Mills Square Park. I've performed a Google map search and Google can't locate it either. Can you please update the article to provide a street address?

Makes sense. As long as we keep eroding and buffering the standards , our Politicians and SchoolRead More Boards will one day have a 100% Graduation Certificate to hang on their "I Love Me" walls!! Truth is , we as a nation spend more money per student than any other Nation in the world on primary education only to have our "graduates" rank 14th in the world......right behind Iceland.So before we run around the building and shake hands with ourselves, maybe we should take a moment to ponder some new innovations in education and stop throwing money into an endless pit!

And after teaching these kids so well, now they want to move to common core. So very sad. If youRead More were doing so great before then why break something that was working?
Suzie Bennett McClung April 1, 2014 at 07:22 am
Common core is NOT a choice. It also isn't so different than what the great schools are alreadyRead More doing. It lets parents and kids know what is expected and is based off of real life skills. It is the poor performing schools that may have a lot of changes. Besides, the STAR test was a terrible measure of school and student performance. Good riddance! So, this award that is based off of that test may disappear next year I guess.

Grenada has one too but it does not seem to be celebrated as much. Maybe because they don't selfRead More promote....
Shelley March 22, 2014 at 05:41 pm
Great job everyone! I am so proud of all of our squads in Livermore!
Becky March 23, 2014 at 08:22 am
What a great cheerleader squad. Nobody can pump up a crowd like them. I really admire people whoRead More can stand up in front of a crowd and lead that wave of excitement.
Jennifer February 12, 2014 at 09:20 pm
Great Presentations! Too bad there were some rude parents there who spoke over the students (thatRead More had microphones) that were trying to do their presentations on the stage. Great example setting...not. No wonder we have so many rude teens running around. Kudos to the teachers for keeping the students motivated during the last five months!

Please keep the comments positive. :)
Becky February 5, 2014 at 12:57 pm
This is really cute, and you can tell that the children did the work themselves which is as itRead More should be.
