Updates from The Alliance!

GENERAL MEETING: "Getting Back to Basics: Listen", empowers us all and is the theme for our first general meeting of the year. Please join us as we kick off this school year at this very special Alliance general meeting scheduled October 30th at the Four Points by Sheraton Pittsburgh North. A light lunch will be served beginning at 11:30 AM followed by a special presentation from Pennsylvania's Attorney General Tom Corbett to announce our joint venture. We kindly request that a member from all of our schools, faith based , business and community agencies attend this important event a! nd submit their RSVP by October 16th to our Office Manager, Patti Ferraro at [ ]

MORE ABOUT THE "VIDEO OF THE MONTH": We strongly encourage our member schools and organizations to participate in this venture. Each month the Alliance will supply the user name and password along with an overview of the video being streamed. Schools and organizations will then have the opportunity to encourage parents to view the month's video via high speed internet. For parents who do not have internet access, each school will receive a collection of the video series for parents to view within their school district. (Copies will be made available at t! he general meeting so we strongly encourage that you or a representative attend the general meeting.) In addition, the Alliance will provide a special blog site for parents to post comments, questions or concerns that will be managed, monitored and screened by the Alliance.
