Dear Community Members,
As we begin our 90th adult school year,
I’m happy to introduce our newest
program —History. This new course
category is not your typical line-up of
                                              Blogging
facts and figures. You’ll find “How Food
                                               Page 5
Has Shaped the World” and “History of
Napa and Monterey.” Check out some of
our newest offerings on page 2.
Speaking of new classes, I am very proud
to announce several new classes that were
requested by our students. Everyone is
talking about how to leverage Web 2.0
applications like social networking, blogs,
wikis and Wikipedia. We’ve also been
asked for classes that explore the newest             World Languages
smart phone technology. Today, you can                  Pages 28–29
find these exciting subjects covered in the
Computers and Photography sections of
our class schedule.
I want to thank all of you for your
feedback. Over the last few quarters,
we’ve heard wonderful comments about
the World Language program and the
difference a second (or third!) language
is making in your lives. Whether you’re
traveling, looking for a new job, or simply
interested in other cultures, check out our              Online Classes
extensive world language offerings.                         Page 13

Join us this fall and help us celebrate
our 90th year bringing lifelong learning
experiences to adults in Palo Alto and the
surrounding area.
See you in class,


Kara Rosenberg

   tivate strong mentoring relationships with the students throughout the school year. Program Director Carlos Guzman
