It’s not just leap day in Oakland. Feb. 29, 2012 has been proclaimed Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Elementary School Day. A Kaiser mom forwarded me this proclamation from Oakland Mayor Jean Quan. I didn’t know mayors did that. Has your school ever had its day?
The document is admittedly hard to read in this size, so here’s an excerpt:
Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Elementary School is to be commended for its unwavering dedication to providing a place where diverse cultures are honored and celebrated, fostering academic excellence and creativity, and imparting the tools necessary for self motivation and independence that are required of well-rounded, reflective and socially aware individuals.
