English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) Meeting

Hello Lin Howe Families,


I am so excited about our 2nd ELAC meeting, which will be happening the week we return from Thanksgiving Break! This will be a special Zoom where we honor 4 Sea Dragons with Reclassification Certificates. We will begin our meeting with a few quick agenda items, then move into our ceremony which will also include a special gift for each student and family. After the ceremony, we will cover a few more topics with families. We hope to see all our ELAC members and other Lin Howe families who wish to join. I will send another reminder out a day prior to our meeting. Have a wonderful break and thank you for all you do to help all our children build academic language. ELAC Zoom LINK


Warmly,

Mr. Raber

5 Reasons to Shop SMALL this Season – Green America-Style!

5 Reasons to Shop SMALL this Season – Green America-Style!


Before Black Friday, we encourage you not to shop to support the toxic consumerist culture of the day that is obsessed with deals. Those deals are paid for by the people who work low wages in factories or in box stores. But it’s unrealistic not to shop at all, and unnecessary. Not only do people use gifts around the holiday season to show their love for one another, but it can also be used to lift those up who need it.

Supporting the green economy is more than being informed - it’s about actually following through and “voting with your dollar” as we call it. Where you shop and what you buy when you do sends a direct message to business owners. And it helps them stay afloat in a competitive, deal-driven market. It’s easy to feel helpless this holiday season. Some people use finding deals as a kind of retail therapy. But at the end of the day, people make money and companies grow (or shrink) depending on the purchases you make.

Here are some tips for feeling good about not just the great thing you got, but the businesses you support this season:
* Every time you buy at a local business, you tell the world your community is worth more than a big-box store sale.
* Every time you buy organic, you tell the world you want more farmers to grow healthy, safe food.
* Every time you buy certified fair trade, you fight poverty.
* Every time you buy from a business owned by women or people of color, you help build an inclusive economy. Buy from Culver City Certified Sustainable Businesses.
* Every time you don’t buy something, you tell the world you don’t need more stuff to have a happy holiday.
