Penny Peck for San Lorenzo School Board     

As I approach the end of my first term on the San Lorenzo School Board, I believe we have made some progress but can still make more. For example, test scores are on the rise, and truancy, suspensions, and expulsions are declining. My previous experience as the Children’s Librarian for San Leandro Public Library for 25 years, and manager Washington Manor Branch Library (retired), has prepared me to assist in supporting our new literacy projects at the elementary level, helping children to become lifelong readers and learners. 

I am a longtime San Lorenzo resident, attended San Lorenzo High, Bohannon, and Lorenzo Manor, Cal State Hayward and San Jose State University where I am a part-time lecturer on children’s literature. I have never missed a school board meeting during my term, and regularly visit all of our schools. My priorities:

 

o         Reduce class size

o         Spend money at the classroom level

o         Update schools with green technology

o         Celebrate diversity

o         Collaborate with teachers and parents

 

Thanks to all of the families who have supported my efforts, and I hope to have your vote in November!
