RISE Task Force: JACKSON KATZ: Leadership For Violence Prevention

As a part of PAUSD’s ongoing sexual harassment and misconduct prevention efforts, The Superintendent’s RISE Task Force has created a series of events to help inform and empower parents, students, teachers and staff about these issues.  In February, national expert Anea Bogue led related discussions with Gunn and Paly students and the PAUSD community.  On April 11th & 12th, we welcome our second speaker, internationally renowned educator, author, filmmaker and cultural theorist, Dr. Jackson Katz, who will present a multimedia program on issues of gender, race and violence.

2017 Gunn Turkey Feast – November 16

The annual Gunn High School Turkey Feast is upon us, and we need your help to make this event a success. Every year we feed over 1600 students, faculty and staff a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. We still need turkeys, pies and vegetarian options. Additional hands are needed for food prep and clean up. Sign up here. Ask your student about this event and they will tell you it’s one of their favorites! No time to cook? Please consider making a monetary donation to help cover the costs of mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy. Make checks payable to “Gunn High School” and write “2017 Turkey Feast” in the memo. Drop-off at the Main Office or mail them to Donna Pioppi, 3920 El Cerrito Road, Palo Alto, CA 94306 or donate online to PTSA’s Paypal address: gunnptsa@gmail.com  put “2017 Turkey Feast” in the memo field.
