By on Mon, February 2, 2009

The Coastside Mothers’ Club is expanding upon the success of our annual education roundtable with our first half-day Education Expo.  The inaugural Education Expo will bring together parents, educators, administrators and school representatives to openly discuss Coastside elementary schools.

The Education Expo will be held on:  Sunday, February 8, 2009   Half Moon Bay Community Center   535 Kelly Street   Half Moon Bay   12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. 

Starting kindergarten is an exciting and hopeful time for families and children. A child’s education plays an important role in shaping his or her future and kindergarten will provide the strong start each child deserves. 

The Education Expo is a unique opportunity to hear Coastside parents openly discuss their thoughts on selecting an elementary school (public, private or home schooled) that was right for their child and school officials will discuss topics such as budgets, testing, and curriculum.

The Expo will include an exhibit area where school representatives will be available the entire event to distribute information and answer questions.  Scheduled panel discussions on specific topics will take place per the times below.

12:45 – 1:45pm   Trends in Education 2:00 – 3:00pm   Public School Parent Panel 3:15 – 4:15pm   Private School Parent Panel

This event is recommended for families who are beginning to plan for kindergarten and is open to the public, free of charge, as a community service to all Coastside residents. Refreshments will be served, childcare will not be provided, and no RSVP is required.
