AP计算机课需要家长义工anonymous 09/19 1111
Dear Parents and Students,
Many parents may have received this email already via Schoology, but I have learned that more than a few did not. We are still in dire need of chaperones, so if you are interested in helping, please let me know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have been invited to visit Oracle OpenWorld 2017 in San Francisco on Wednesday, October 4! I will be handing out permission slips from the PAUSD and waiver forms from Oracle on the first day of class next week. Please return them as quickly as possible. Oracle, in particular, needs to get its paperwork in a timely manner. Since they are kind enough to host us, I want to make their lives as easy as possible. This is an enormous conference and their logistics people have plenty of work on their hands as it is.
The only cost for the trip will be train fare. Instead of going to Gunn, the plan will be to meet at the California Ave. Caltrain station at 8:40am sharp to get organized and purchase train tickets. (Those people who have Clipper cards can use those.) The Caltrain web site suggests that the round-trip cost will be $7.75 per student and $15.50 per adult.
We will be boarding the number 233 train at 9:06am. The reason for being at the station so early is that it takes a while to get organized. We have had students who missed the train, chaperones who didn't have time to meet their students, etc. in the past. The extra time should give us a little leeway.
We will return to California St. station on the 254 train, departing San Francisco at 2:43pm, arriving in Palo Alto at 3:36pm. We will not return to Gunn, so please plan transportation home from the train station.
We have exactly 100 AP CS A students. We will need one chaperone per six students. If you are interested in serving as a chaperone, please send me an email at email@example.com. In some years, we have had more interested parents than chaperone spots. If we are fortunate enough to have that happen this year, I will randomly select chaperones from those parents who are interested and apologize profusely to those folks whose names were not selected.
