LVJUSD Reading and Discussion Series
LVJUSD Launches Reading and Discussion Series
New this year is an ongoing reading and discussion series designed for LVJUSD parents and guardians, and open to all who are interested. Once each trimester, all are invited to a “book club” that will center around a featured book, as well as Ted Talks, articles, and other relevant material that participants can review either in addition to or in lieu of reading the book. The series will meet on Wednesdays, at 10:00 am and again at 7:00 pm on November 16, 2016, February 15, 2017, and May 17, 2017. Philomena Rambo, LVJUSD Director of Programs and Partnerships, will host this new series at the Livermore Public Library.

Tri-M Halloween Candy Drive
Our chapter of Tri-M, a music honor society, is again doing a Halloween candy drive to benefit Operation Gratitude, who will send the candy in care packages to our troops, veterans, Wounded Warriors, and first responders. No worries if you have leftover candy—we’ll take it off your hands!
In addition to candy, we’re hoping to collect things like travel-sized dental products, granola/energy bars/trail mix (individually wrapped), pens/pencils and pocket-sized spiral notebooks, new plush toys (6” or smaller), individual packets of moist towelettes, pocket-pack kleenex, paracord bracelets, etc.
For more info on the Halloween Candy Buyback, you can visit https://opgrat.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/halloween-candy-for-the-troops/ .
Any questions, feel free to ask! The deadline for items is November 7th.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Advanced Band Halloween Parade at Jackson Avenue
Homework Club Begins October 10th.
The Homework Club meets in the library on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2:35-3:30 pm. We invite all students who would like a little extra help or a quiet place to work to join us. Once you sign in you must stay for the entire hour.
We would like to remind the students that they need to come prepared. The Homework Club does not have books or supplies to loan out so text books, calculators, rulers, etc. must be supplied by the student.
Students also need to remember that this is to be a quiet work time. Students who want to spend the time visiting with friends will be asked to leave and do so somewhere else.
Thank You and Hope to See You There,

LAVTA/WHEELS DISCOUNT BUS PASS PROGRAM 2016-2017
What is the Student Transit Pass Pilot?
The Student Transit Pass Pilot is a three-year pilot program sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded by Measure BB, a countywide sales tax measure. The Pilot aims to reduce barriers to transportation access to and from schools, and improve transportation options for Alameda County’s middle and high school students. The Pilot is expected to run from August 2016 through July 2019, with the hope of creating the basis for a countywide student pass program.
East Avenue Middle School is one of eleven schools in Alameda County that will participate in this program during the 2016-2017 pilot year. If you’re a full-time student enrolled at East Avenue Middle for the 2016-2017 school year, you are eligible to receive a Student Transit Pass as part of this Pilot.
