Art Across the Island

Art Across the IslandHaight Elementary School students Christina, Laura and Enna put the finishing touches on their italian marbled paper, which was on display display as part of the Alameda Education Foundation’s “Art Across the Island” project.  “Art Across the Island” is a two-year project that will feature visual and literary art produced by Alameda public school students.  Artwork can be seen at various venues throughout Alameda from October 2017 – April 2018.

According to Pam Riley Chang, the foundation’s chair of Visual and Performing Arts, the goal is to display art from students representing every Alameda public school.

“Art Across the Island” is a partnership of the foundation with Alameda public school teachers, school art docents, the Alameda Free Library – Bay Farm and West End branches, AGL Collective, Alameda Art Lab, Books Inc, Cookiebar Creamery, Lilac Dress Boutique, Modern Mouse and Rhythmix Cultural Works.  “Both students and the public both benefit when artwork and creative writing is on display,” added Chang.

Art education is a core component of the foundation’s mission to support learning opportunities for Alameda public school students.  In addition to the arts, the foundation supports and manages programs in athletics, technology, college prep programs, and dozens of enrichment classes and camps.

“Wonderful art is being created in our class rooms and Art Across the Island gives Alamedans a chance to see student art (and, yes, some literature) in a gallery setting. Our local small businesses and the two branch libraries are enthusiastic supporters of this program and I can’t thank them enough. Lastly, art teachers and art docents have been thrilled to see work that is produced in other public schools and I am looking forward to an event where those of us who have helped produce art for this program get to share our ideas.” Pam Riley Change, AEF Visual and Performing Arts Chair

Decode Your Teen!

 Parent/Teen Workshop
Saturday, March 4, 2 – 4 PM, Alameda High Media Center

Do you want your teen to be happy? To be able to bounce back when things get tough? To help set them up for life and work in the real world? Do you just want to get along better?

AEF is offering a  workshop on “Raising Resilient Teens”. This fun and engaging workshop is designed to help teens (and parents) understand:

  • Individual behavior style – what makes you tick and how do you embrace successful behaviors
  • Personal motivation interests and talents – how to make better study, career and life choices
  • The behavior style of others – to appreciate difference and work cooperatively
  • How to develop productive relationships – at home, school and work

This workshop will help you experience that “a-ha” moment when you uncover your true self, break down the “brick wall” of communication between parents and teens, and develop a language for improved communication and relationships.

This workshop is for 6th – 12th Alameda public school students and their parents.

$125 – covers the student and one parent/guardian. $35 additional fee for an additional parent/guardian. $15 materials fee is additional. It is not necessary to attend the Feb. 1 presentation to participate in the workshop.

Registration is open!  Click on the blue Enrichment button on the left to sign up. Space is limited.

AEF Alameda Asteroids hosts Middle School Cross Country Meet

By Debra Cramer,  Alameda Asteroids coach

mss_crosscountry_fall2016The Alameda Asteroids Middle School Cross Country Club hosted a meet with 11 Bay Area schools from the SACMAL league on Wednesday, September 28th at Crab Cove.  The Alameda Asteroids is a middle school cross country club managed under AEF’s after-school enrichment program.  Sixth – 8th graders from Alameda middle schools participate in the running club from September through November each fall and compete as a team against schools from outside Alameda.

Represented at the meet were students from San Leandro, Newark, Union City, Castro Valley and Piedmont middle schools.  Encinal High Cross Country coach Don Porteous marked the course and timed the event, and the Encinal High School Cross Country team provided course monitors, finish line monitors and tag takers.  Times were recorded for 412 students; 32 of those were Alameda Asteroids.

The boys one mile runners began the meet, followed by the girls one mile runners.  Unique to the Crab Cove meet, there is a two mile course to challenge the more experienced runners and ease them into the 3.1 mile courses they will be expected to run at the high school level.

The Alameda Asteroid girls performed outstanding in the 2-mile race, taking 1st, 3rd, 4th and 9th places with Quinn Sedlachek, Malou Killian, Aila Owens and Zoey Ericson,  respectively, out of 42 runners.   Our 2-mile boy runners were Isaiah Coss, Jesse Salinas, Arlo Rucker, Eli Siltanen, Felix Moon, Aidan Lapachet and Kellen Sellers, who came in 10th,12th,19th, 20th, 40th, 49th and 58th out of 88 runners.  It was an overwhelming successful turnout.  The Asteroids will attend their next meet on Wednesday October 19th at Bancroft Middle School in San Leandro.
