Screen Shot of Web Page on About Before the Flood

On Wednesday, May 3, the Citizens Environmental Council of Burlingame and the Burlingame High School (BHS) Parents’ Group will present a FREE screening of “Before the Flood,” which features Leonardo DiCaprio on an international journey as a United Nations “Messenger of Peace,” sounding the alarm about the growing climate crisis. He joins scientists on expeditions uncovering the reality of climate change, meets with political leaders fighting against inaction and discovers a disinformation campaign aimed at confusing the public. The program also will include BHS student Jeffery Chen’s video, “The Plastic Bottle Controversy Explained,” which recently was the Overall Festival Winner at the Clear the Air Filmfest. In addition, Phil Gregory of Burlingame law firm Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy will speak briefly about a landmark lawsuit by 21 young people who are suing the U.S. government to take action on climate change. This program will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. in the auditorium at Burlingame High School, 1 Mangini Way, Burlingame. Admission is FREE.

BHS student Jeffrey Chen's video can be viewed HERE. For more information on the young people's lawsuit, click HERE. For more information on this event, visit cecburlingame.org or email info@cecburlingame.org.

Photo of Teacher Lisa DolehideSan Mateo Adult School (SMAS) English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher Lisa Dolehide was awarded the 2017 California Council for Adult Education Bay Section Excellence in Teaching Award.  Lisa has been the wind beneath the wings of SMAS' model Student Council program. For fourteen years, she was the Council advisor, growing it from a small exercise in democracy to a powerhouse of student voice and action.  She has also been an invaluable participant in the upswing of the new Regional Consortia system for Adult Education. She made sure teachers and students had a voice in that process and she's part of why ACCEL, our Regional Consortium, is a model for the state.  She also co-coordinated English Learner Civics for many years, providing SMAS ESL teachers with the materials they needed to teach their students how to fully engage in civic and community life.  On top of all this, she is an outstanding teacher in the classroom.  For the moment, we must say good-bye to Lisa's many contributions and energizer bunny personality as she leaving for new adventures.  Farewell and congratulations to Lisa, jump starter of democracy and learning.
