one night event and lasts for approx. 90 min.

Thinksafe for Women

Is a program that teaches a practical and common-sense approach to personal
protection for women in a flexible format. Simple, effective physical
techniques are combined with vital tactical and strategic training designed
to help prevent the need for the use of physical skills. Exertion is minimal
to light.
Research has shown that attackers will exhibit certain behaviors and look
for certain traits in their victims. Thinksafe teaches both how to project
an image of non-vulnerability and how to perceive and deter potential
attacks before they become physical. In the event of a physical attack,
Thinksafe techniques are simple and practical; designed to achieve maximum
effect with a minimal amount of training.
Please call 524-1202 to sign-up.

*Think Spring! Think Gardening!*

The Down To Earth Community Garden is growing! Yes, we have room for
expansion and would like to welcome any interested teachers, staff or
student families to participate in the garden. There is a small fee to rent
a plot (3 sizes available). The gardener provides their own seeds or plants
and cultivates their bed all season long. At the end of the season each
gardener is responsible for cleaning up their bed. Water, compost, tools,
education, collaboration and support are provided. It’s a great way to eat
fresh vegetables all summer long, save money, get exercise and fresh air,
meet new families and beautify the City School landscape.

If you would like to learn more or know of anyone interested please email
Holly at or call 524.2011. The season kick-off meeting is
April 1st.
