It was so clean that my wife loves it.

Kolb Elementary School!

Dublin is pleased to see a brand new elementary school at Dublin Ranch:

Kolb Elementary School

3150 Palermo Way
Dublin, CA 94568
tel: 925-551-4000 fax: 925-479-0124

Office Hours:
Monday-Friday: 8:00AM – 4:00PM
Kolb Elementary School PFC:
August 21st, 2011: Ribbon Cutting at Kolb Elementary School
August 22nd, 2011: The first school day for Kolb Elementary School. There’s a little issue for the traffic because, unlike those at Fall School, all students start class at 8:35am and there is some inconvenience of parking (on campus parking is very limited). There is big construction around this new school.

Other than that, most of the parents and kids love this new school!

International Walk To School Day:10/6

On Oct. 6th, about one third of students in San Mateo County will celebrate International Walk To School Day with other 40 countries. You are invited to join.

The benefits of walking are all known to almost everyone, but how many people can do the walk as often as possible?

When you work for too long at the computer, take a walk. When your kids are still young, train them to walk, not just walk a little, walk a longer distance. Let us start the habit of walking from this great date! For a better kid and for a better world!

See you on the streets, walking to school, to the stores, to the bank, to the post office. Hopefully, soon, parents in Dublin can see their kids walk to the new middle school in East Dublin which can help the students for a better learning environment and a better life. I’m glad that soon we are going to see H.W. Kolb Elementary School, the new one under construction in Dublin Ranch. Our kids will sure walk to this school as they do now.

The walk is not just great for the kids, but also great for the parents, when the kids are too young for the walk, the parents are encouraged to walk with them. If your homes are too far from the school, try to find a park nearby (at a walking distance to the school), park and walk your kids, then you will get the double benefits. The traffic at the school will sure improve.

Sorrento at Dublin Ranch Annual Yard Sale!

You are invited to visit Sorrento at Dublin Ranch Sorrento Community Yard Sale at the Sorrento Clubhouse Lawn – Saturday, October 2nd – 8am to 12pm. You will sure find the things you love at a great price.

Location:3538 Capoterra Way, Dublin, CA. Google Map.

Event Report Update: The Yard Sale was fun. That was a great chance to know the neighbors too. The actual sale was at the Club House parking lot instead of the lawn (sorry if you missed it. We’ll do better next time.) The Huang family sold a few items but bought items for the kids. It was not really for the profit but for fun and better communication.
Some nice photos of this Yard Sale.
