On Columbus Day, your student has the day off. How will SMUHSD teachers, administrators and support staff be spending their Columbus Day? On Monday, October 12th, the SMUHSD team will be participating in a Professional Development Day – an employee development program that allows teachers and staff to spend time on learning and collaborating on important topics that impact both students and teachers, and the employees who support your student’s high school experience. The District Office team, including the staff of Attendance and Welfare, will be back on Tuesday, October 12th to respond to your questions.
New Learning Lab Opens at BHS
Thanks to a generous donor, BHS now has a new learning lab! The new Learning Lab at Burlingame High School was made possible by a $100,000 donation by 1982 alum, Marc Benioff of Sales Force. The donation enabled the school to complete the first phase of the new lab, which includes new computers, computer stations, and a refurbished space with significant rewiring. Yesterday's Learning Lab opening was not just a tribute to Mr. Benioff for his donation; it was really a tribute to his teachers, Walter Saito (BHS Math teacher from 1969-1999) and Tom Willard (BHS Math teacher from 1990-2006) for their time and commitment to their students, including Marc Benioff, who they helped to nurture into the successful business man and innovator he is today.

Attend Middle College's Showing of Award Winning Film "Living on One"
Middle College students invite you to a showing of “Living on One” -- a film about two young Americans who attempt to live, as many impoverished Guatemalans do, on a dollar a day in rural Guatemala. The film won Best Documentary at the Sonoma International Film Festival, and received endorsements from Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah, and the Director of the Hunger Games, Gary Ross. The event is a fundraiser for The Middle College Effect, a branch of The Hillsdale Effect, which raises money to provide impoverished women in Guatemala with microloans to start small businesses. Details: Thursday, Oct. 15 at 6:30pm, College of San Mateo, Building 10, Room 193. This event is open to the community. The film is just one way Middle College has students engage in authentic learning experiences beyond the classroom. We hope you all will attend the “Living on One” event! Questions? Call Greg Lance at 574-6537. To learn more about the film, click here. To learn more about the amazing program, The Hillsdale/Middle Effect, click here.
