Looking for a Transitional Kindergarten Program for your young 5 year old? @ Parents' Press Bay Area Schools Register
May 28 all-day

Transitional kindergarten (TK) is one of the first steps California’s youngest schoolchildren take in their academic careers.

The Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010, signed into law by Gov. Schwarzenegger, changed the kindergarten entry date from Dec. 2 to Sept. 1 so that children enter kindergarten at age 5. The law phased in the new age requirement by moving the cutoff date one month a year for three years, and is now fully implemented.

Transitional Kindergarten offers an additional year of school to our younger students. It provides opportunities to learn in an academically challenging and enriching environment. Children who attend Transitional Kindergarten are more likely to acquire the academic skills, confidence and maturity they need to succeed in school.

Entering Kindergarten at an older age is an important early predictor for student success. Some studies indicate that students who are older when they enter Kindergarten demonstrate a significant boost in academic achievement, self-confidence, and healthful attitudes about school and learning (RAND, 2007)

Please explore our Transitional Kindergarten Guide at the link above to help find the perfect program for your child!

(June 1 – August 12, 2018): Political art has a long history within Latino artistic movements in the U.S. dating as far back to the 1960s and the early Chicano movement in the United States. Early Chicano Art collectives like Los Angeles-based collective ASCO challenged the dominate institutional narrative of the time through alternative artistic practices (interventions, street performance, graffiti). Rebel Resistance: We Interrupt this Message looks at the role of the artist as activist/disruptor through the lens of Latino popular culture (hip-hop, punk, Latino youth culture).

Smuin Presents “Dance Series 02” @ Sunset Center Register

Smuin Presents "Dance Series 02" @ Sunset Center |  |  |

Smuin concludes its 24th season with “Dance Series 02,” featuring a world premiere by internationally acclaimed choreographer Val Caniparoli titled “If I Were a Sushi Roll.” Drawing on the athleticism and versatility of Smuin dancers, this cutting-edge piece weaves a captivating movement narrative set to a contemporary classical baroque soundtrack by American composer Nico Muhly and Faroese singer/songwriter Teitur. Last seen at Smuin with the witty “Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino,” the “San Francisco Chronicle” raved about Caniparoli’s “miraculously timed [and] magic” choreography. Back by popular demand, Helen Pickett’s visually stunning “Oasis” also returns to dazzle audiences with its sensual and powerful choreography, set to a compelling original score by Emmy award-winning “House of Cards” composer Jeff Beal. An ode to the fluidity and transformative ability of water, the piece was described as “lush” and “beautifully performed” by “The Mercury News” upon its world premiere with Smuin in spring 2016. Rounding out the bill is Amy Seiwert’s “Falling Up,” an intimate exploration of strength and trust between partners set to the music of Brahms. Revisiting the stage a decade after its world premiere in 2007, Seiwert’s first choreographed piece for the company was hailed as both an audience and critical sensation upon its debut.

CREATIVE DIVE!
Workshops with Rebecca Meredith

There’s no reason to be alone while you make. Be in the moment, share your observations of your environment, of your own process, and learn by doing. A social and positive attitude towards exploration, without concern for failure is a contagious recipe for satisfaction and enjoyment. Consider what’s possible if let yourself play. In Creative Dive workshops, we experiment with a variety of media in order to allow the innocence and unimpaired enthusiasm of the novice. We play and explore in a social and supportive context.

All Materials Provided. Feel free to bring your child and we’ll adjust the project to their age.
