Altadena Elementary supporters urging the state not to "blow it" Thursday


Thursday, March 15, is "pink slip" day at the Pasadena Unified School District,  where teachers will get their lay-off notices.  (In years past. not all teachers who got notices were actually laid off -- but if they're in danger of losing their jobs, the notice has to go out this week).

Altadena Elementary School isn't taking it lying down:  it's joining about 50 other schools around the state with a "Don't Blow It" event that morning during drop-off:.  According to Altadena Elementary parent Cushon Bell, the bubble-blowing event is to "educate parents and community members and encourage them to write to their legislators regarding the urgent need for a balanced budget that does not further negatively impact our California public schools."

The bubble-blowing event is sponsored by Educate Our State!, a parent-led statewide campaign to support high-quality K-12 public education.
