Salute to Education 2017

Salute to Education to Honor Alameda Innovative School Programs on April 21st


Encinal multi-media students at work

Lum Elementary 3rd grade teachers recognize that some students have the “wiggles” and Lum has implemented a flexible seating environment, including stand up desks and stools that let students wiggle while they sit; these flexible learning spaces accommodate the individuality of Lum students.

Encinal Jr. and Sr. High School teacher Paul Igaz has created a multi-media program where students make films and get to act like an adult behind the camera and play like a kid in front of it.

These programs and more will be recognized at the Alameda Education Foundation’s annual Salute to Education event on Friday, April 21 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm at Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Avenue, Alameda.

Each of Alameda’s 20 public schools will have an innovative program and a volunteer honored at the event.  The programs and the volunteers will be featured on photo-quality posters at the venue as well as in keepsake programs.  In addition, each school’s outstanding volunteers will be recognized during the event and presented with a token of appreciation for their work.

“Salute to Education is an opportunity for educators, parents, artists, business people and office holders to network and learn more about the work being done in Alameda schools,” according to event chair Pam Chang.  The event features hors d’oeuvres from Alameda restaurants, fine wine from Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine and locally made craft beer, making it a true partnership between town and gown. Tickets are $30 in advance at

“The innovation in our schools is inspiring, yet not always known outside of the individual school sites,” said AEF executive director Vicki Sedlack.  “Whether it’s the science that takes place in The Lab at Ruby Bridges or in the garden at Lincoln Middle School, or the technology that is being introduced in the library at Otis, amazing learning is happening at Alameda public schools, Please help us celebrate the dedicated staff and volunteers who work so hard on behalf of our students.”
