Thoughts from Jim

Please Add Your Name to Support This Remarkable School!

Important message from my daughter – and a request

My grandchildren (and others) need your help. Isaac is in the 3rd grade in a wonderful charter school in Los Angeles and Sylvie will be starting there next year. The school currently goes through the 5th grade and they are trying to expand through the 8th grade.

What’s so special about this school and why do I want my grandchildren to spend as many years there as possible? What he has already learned in math is testing my skills as an engineer. By the time he’s in the 5th grade, I may have to go back to school to keep up with him, although he’s very good at explaining to me what he’s doing.

Your help will be most appreciated and it will only take a moment. They are not asking for money! Please just sign the petition in the link below.

My daughter explains more below. 

"Please, please, please take a moment to sign this petition to LAUSD to in support of our school, Citizens of the World Charter School (CWC). You don't need to live in L.A. We are looking to expand our charter to include a middle school and we need at least 3,000 signatures on the petition. 

CWC provides not just an excellent academic experience (constructivist / project based learning) but also includes social / emotional learning and mindfulness / meditation built into the curriculum. Knowing the insanity of middle school and quite frankly the state of the world, these tools are key for the success of all kids. 

Isaac taught me a meditation practice yesterday to help me ground when I lost my center. It was humbling, rad, and I couldn't have been prouder. This school has improved the life of not just my son, but our whole family.

Please help us keep it going through the rough years of middle school. Thank you!!"

Friends and colleagues, they need these signatures by Friday, 30 September. It will take only a minute to do. Please click here and sign!

I thank you, my family thanks you, and the children who attend CWC and who will be attending in the future thank you.

Note: You can opt out of the emails and texts so you don’t hear from the school in the future.
