More experience than project More experience than project (July 01, 2005)


Perhaps if the Senior Project proposed by the School Board was instead called the "Senior Experience," parents and students would be more receptive to the idea. What parent doesn't want their child to have a safe, new and meaningful experience? (Just so you know, I am not a proponent of the project in its present state. There is presently only a general idea of how the project would be implemented, yet no real research and development on the curriculum.) Katherine Konner Tanager Dr.

D.A.R.E. made a difference D.A.R.E. made a difference (July 01, 2005)


I am a fifth grader at Valley View Elementary School. I would like to thank the Pleasanton Police Department and the D.A.R.E. officers for teaching us how to avoid drugs and how to be safe. I would also like to thank them for putting on a great party at the Aquatic Center for the fifth graders. I think it made a difference. Daniel Duret Pleasanton
