A new year at Peralta Elementary, and a new website for the School and Parent Teacher Group. Our goals for the new website are to make information about Peralta and the PPTG more accessible to everyone; from updating and streamlining the content, to making the site look good on mobile phones. You can now also buy t-shirts on-line! We're looking forward to continuing to improve this site and make it an even better resource for current and potential Peralta familes. Take a look around and let us know what you think!

TELEGRAPH AVENUE COMPLETE STREET IMPLEMENTATION PLAN
From Jamie Parks, AICP
It has been a few months since I've sent an update on the Telegraph Avenue Complete Street Implementation Plan, but City staff have been working hard to take all the feedback we heard and develop a single set of recommendations. The City will share our DRAFT recommendations for Telegraph Avenue at two public open houses in September:
· Thursday, September 11, 6-8pm; Beebe Memorial Cathedral (3900 Telegraph) · Saturday, September 13, 10am-12pm; Gogi Time Banquet Room (2600 Telegraph)
The purpose of these meetings will be to (1) show draft concepts and plans to make Telegraph Avenue a safer street for travel by all roadway users and (2) solicit feedback and comments that can be incorporated into the final plan. Both meetings will cover the same material, so hopefully at least one of the times works for you.
The draft plan is currently in final review, and will be posted to the project website (www.oaklandnet.com/TelegraphAvenue) in the next couple weeks in advance of the open houses. I will send another announcement when additional materials are posted.
In the meantime, we will begin distributing flyers and otherwise raising awareness for the events. Please help by forwarding this announcement to your friends and colleagues as appropriate. As always, please contact me if you have any questions the project, and thank you for your continued interest in a better Telegraph!
The Peralta Broadcast attempts to go out weekly during the school year. If you have any school or class announcements, or interesting community events you'd like to share with the Peralta family, please email or forward the information to Catherine Kelly at this address (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Peralta%20Broadcast) .
