End of School Year Report 2016-2017

By Dr. Jessica Xu

It is hard to believe that summer is almost here.  The PPG has an amazing second school year.  PPG was officially incorporated as a California Public Benefit Nonprofit last August.  Recently, PPG was honored, along with our partner Champions for Health, to receive recognition from Congressman Scott Peters, California Senator Toni Atkins and California Assemblyman Brian Maienschein for our effort in raising awareness of Computer Vision Syndrome and the escalation of myopia among children in the digital age.

All these accomplishments would not be possible without the selfless service of our parent volunteers.  PPG relies 100% on parent volunteers.  There are many ways you can help us.

• Join PPG volunteer team.  The vast majority of PPG volunteers are working parents with extremely hectic family-work schedules.  The more volunteers, the more feasible it would be for everyone. We appreciate everyone’s contribution.  To become a PPG volunteer, email info@pusdparents.org .

• If you haven’t, please like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PUSDParentsGroup/ . We sincerely hope that PPG Facebook will provide an active and interactive platform for all members.

• Invite your friends and neighbors to join us and sign up for free PPG Newsletter: http://pusdparents.org/join-us/ .  We have strength in numbers.  With greater support from parents, we can enact greater change.

PPG 3rd Annual Student Mandarin Initiative Poster Competition has begun.  This competition promotes the potential Mandarin language immersion program in PUSD.  All students in PUSD are welcome to enter the competition.  The deadline for submission is Saturday September 9 2017.  Online submission is http://pusdparents.org/2017-mandarin-initiative-poster-competition/ .

PPG 2nd Annual Member Meeting will be Saturday, October 7 2017.  It will be a fun family orientated potluck picnic this year.  It is also a time to elect three PPG board members for 2017-2019 term.  Make sure to mark your calendar!

On behalf of PPG board and executive team, we wish everyone a great summer!  See you in September.
