Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Performing Arts Center

600 N. Delaware, San Mateo

The College application process can be overwhelming and intimidating both for parents and students. There are a myriad of decisions, conflicting information, and as a result, stress levels tend to be high. Come join us for this informative lecture on the "College Planning Road Map." Event participants will:

  • Gain insights on how to manage the stress of the process.
  • Understand roles and responsibilities of the students, parents, and support resources
  • Review a step-by-step "roadmap" including how to plan for academics, testing, extra-curricular activities, college selection, submission strategies, writing effective essays, financial planning and more.

More Information:

  • Due to limited seating, you must register by clicking HERE.
  • See the FLYER for the details. (Spanish and Chinese flyer coming soon!)
  • Event will have Spanish and Chinese interpretation.
  • Please come prepared to take notes. Photos and recordings of the workshop are prohibited and there will be no handouts.

Clearing the Smokescreen: A Frank Conversation about Marijuana
Tuesday, October 24th
Burlingame High School Theater
1 Mangini Way


In January of 2018, the Marijuana laws in California are changing. What does that mean for our community? What do we know about how students are accessing marijuana now? What forms does it take? What should parents know about the effects of marijuana on adolescent brain development? What are the myths and what are the facts? No matter where you stand on the ideological spectrum of legalization, you won’t want to miss this panel conversation dedicated to giving you the latest information on this important health topic.

PANELISTS (subject to change)

  • Daniel Becker, M.D. Mills Peninsula Health Services
  • Dave Pine, San Mateo County Supervisor
  • Al Serrato, Assistant District Attorney

MODERATOR: John Ryan (BHS Parent)
