Book Drive

Hey Interactors! 

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” – Dr. Seuss 

It’s the time of the year for the Gift of Reading book drive! The drive will take place from November 17-21 and December 1-12, we are collecting new or almost new books for children who are ages 0-18, especially books for preschool/elementary school level reading and books in Spanish or Vietnamese. 

These books will be donated to RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching) and San Jose Mercury News’ Gift of Reading book drive which will donate the books to under-served children and to teachers so that the teachers can build their classroom libraries. 

For this drive, three books will be counted as 1 point, with a maximum amount of 3 points to earn. The exception to this rule is that books that are at preschool/elementary school level reading and books in Spanish or Vietnamese will be counted as 1.5 points for each set of three. To clarify, you can receive points for a maximum of 9 books, but we do encourage you to donate more. 

Please place your books in a bag with your full name and grade written on the bag. Drop off your books in Room 3208.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through loopmail. Thanks!

Glide Memorial

Hey Interactors!

Welcome back to school! To keep it simple, Interact is ready to host its 2nd event of the year: the Glide Memorial. 

On January 3, 2015, we will meet in school at 5:45 am. Parent volunteers will then drive us to the Pleasanton Bart ($10 for each ticket), then we will take the BART to Glide Memorial Church and serve breakfasts there from 7-9 am and come back at around 11 am. You must wear an Interact t-shirt (if you do not have one, they are available for $5 in Mrs. Shuen's room).

For this event we need 20 volunteers, 1 chaperone (whose BART ticket is paid by Interact), and parent drivers. 

This event will be worth 4 points. 

Parents drivers and chaperones need to fill forms below and need to make an appointment to be fingerprinted (fee covered by school). Forms and the location of fingerprinting will be sent through your student’s loopmail after the volunteer list is finalized. 

If you are interested, please sign up on the Google Form below: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1wCB14wkSas9Ac5Evllzi-zkgKM-JJEcYrk805CsESaA/viewform 

If you have any questions, feel free to loopmail me, Zheng Lian.

Thank you!

Hey hey, Interactors!

It's a brand new year, and that means more opportunities to serve our community! Although Club Day hasn't happened yet, I'm sure there are many old members already eager to get started on their 10 point requirement for the semester in order to be considered an active Interact member. (Remember: you need to be an active member for a certain number of semesters in order to get an Interact graduation cord when you graduate in the future! And though there will be more events throughout the semester, they will be sporadic, so take the opportunity if you can!)

This Sunday, September 21st, is the Danville D'Elegance held on Hartz Avenue in Danville. It features old-fashioned (but gorgeous) cars, food, wine, etc., and all the proceeds will go toward research for Parkinson's Disease. Although the event is from 11 AM to 4 PM, volunteers shifts start at 6 AM to 6 PM. (Specific shifts listed on Google Form.) There will also be a mandatory orientation on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014, in the parking lot across the street from Christie James Jewelry store located at 412 Hartz Avenue, Danville, CA from 6 PM to approximately 6:45 PM.

If you would like to sign up and help out (as well as take part in these wonderful festivities toward a worthy cause), please sign up on this Google Form preferably before September 19th. You may check out then the official Danville D'Elegance website for more information.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate at all to contact me-- Yema Yang-- through loopmail!
Thank you for your time and for, as always, putting service above self!

Your Co-President,
Yema Yang
