					                             SUPERINTENDENT’S MESSAGE
                          As I write this message, people around the world are preparing to
                          celebrate the holiday season in their own special ways that honor their
                          family, culture and faith. The season is one of giving thanks, coming
                          together to share with others, and taking stock of our own lives. My
                          thoughts often turn to one of my favorite short stories, O. Henry’s
                          classic “The Gift of the Magi.” The story is an excellent example
                          of how far people are willing to go and sacrifice for others. We do
                          not need to go to the extremes as in the story, but there are numerous
                          opportunities in our own community to share and help others.

The holiday season is truly a time of giving and giving someone the gift of education is a gift
that returns its value many times over. As you browse through this brochure, you will definitely
find classes that interest you and, more than likely, someone you know – maybe a spouse, a
friend, a neighbor or business associate. Have you ever suggested a CVACE class to another
person? Better yet, sign up for a class together; even better, give a CVACE gift certificate to
encourage another to enroll in a class. CVACE is here to support you and your friends on the
journey of life-long learning.

In this season of giving thanks, I want to thank the Board of Education of the Castro Valley Unified
School District for its continued support of Adult and Career Education. While many districts
have cut or eliminated their adult education program, our board is committed to providing a high
quality program that truly promotes life-long learning. I hope to see you in one of our classes.

On behalf of the board and the entire district staff, I wish you “Happy Holidays!”

Jim Negri

 HELP YOUR CHILD BE CARING, RESPONSIBLE & SUCCESSFUL: The 40
 Developmental Assets
 078900
 Learn about the 40 common sense, positive experiences and qualities that help influence choices
 young people make and help them become caring, responsible, successful adults. Studies show
 that the greater the numbers of Developmental Assets are experienced by young people, the more
 positive and successful their development. The fewer the number of assets present, the greater
 the possibility youth will engage in risky behaviors such as drug use, unsafe sex, and violence.
 At this workshop, Leslie Rothwell, former Castro Valley Unified School District Principal and
 Director of Pupil Services will share information with parents about these assets, how they affect
 academic success and how parents can help their children develop these assets. For parents of
 all aged children.

 NAVIGATING THE SCHOOL SYSTEM FOR YOUR STUDENT’S SUCCESS
 0706000
 This workshop will provide parents with an overview of the school ‘system’- the rules, rights
 and responsibilities of educators, parents, students and community members working together
 to educate our children and youth. The ‘rules’ to be discussed will include the State of California
 Education Code and CVUSD Board Policy, ‘rights’ will include student, parent, and teacher
 rights in the educational system, and ‘responsibilities’ will include the structures through which
 all parties can participate to ensure student success. Participants will leave feeling empowered
 and will receive an excellent resource packet. Workshop will be conducted by a current Castro
 Valley Unified Parent and School Social Worker. For parents of all aged children.
