Neighbors, We are thinking of moving to Dublin but have been scared by reading overflows in middle and high schools. I understand that there is only one high and it is way beyond the capacity. I know they are using portable class rooms by adding more classes but wondering if it is having negative impact on securing AP placements and electives. The property that we are looking has Wells Middle as the home school whose rating seem to have plummeted from 9 to six!
Interested to learn experiences of parents who have middle and high school going kids.
Thanking you all in advance
Dublin City is entertaining a proposal to construct more blocks of dense housing on the eastern side on Tassajara Road, opposite Emerald Glen Park, just north of Dublin Blvd. So far this land is supposed to be for pedestrian-friendly retail and restaurants.
It would simply be good and desirable by all Dublin residents if the land is left alone to be used for retail as originally planned. Dublin, after all, has a lot of big-box retail and now an enormous amount of housing for its size. Modern pedestrian-friendly retail would be an awesome, welcome addition. (Another story for another day – if the parcel can be used for the new High School). To understand what’s going on – the pink color below is the originally planned retail-oriented area:
And see, below, the pink area replaced with housing. So the new proposed plan is to instead construct more dense housing. Really? ?(And amongst other issues, where would kids from this new development go to school? – there is some serious thinking required here on part of the City Council and the School District).
A large retail area, walkable from across the Emerald Glen Park, Waterford, Sorrento, The Villas would be pretty cool – it’s a need, it’s a desire, both for the city’s residents, and its image.
Pictures above, worth a thousand words, are telling a different story that is evolving instead.
Granted a relatively much smaller retail is still part of the proposed plan – with two Hotels and a small Cinema. But it’s unacceptably small. There is a large well-earning population around that can help the retail sustain and flourish. There is no reason to dilute or change the existing Land Use Plan. And every reason for Dublin residents to oppose this plan. There is a petition to make the voice heard, that can be signed here. The Dublin city staff report on the item is available at http://bit.ly/2hEw92v on the city website (source of the pictures above).
Opening Friday, March 31 at Regal Hacienda Crossings Stadium 20 in Dublin, as well as 4 other movie theaters in the Bay Area. Local filmmakers, director Rucha Humnabadkar and writer-producer Rishi Bhilawadikar, invite you to attend opening weekend of the theatrical release of their film “For Here or To Go?” – a light-hearted narrative inspired by true events sharing the untold story of Indian immigrants in America as they strive to make a home away from home. Starring Ali Fazal (Furious 7, Fukrey), Melanie Chandra (CBS’s Code Black), Rajit Kapur (Making of the Mahatma), Amitosh Nagpal (Besharam), Omi Vaidya (3 Idiots), Samrat Chakrabarti (Viceroy’s House), and Bay Area local actor Keith Stevenson. RSVP to our Facebook event and bring your friends and co-workers (even if they have never had a samosa!) – bit.ly/forhere

Preferably closer to pleasanton/dublin (as opposed to Windermere) – that is too far from where I live.

This event is being organized by the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF). SSRF’s aim is to “educate society on the spiritual dimension and how it affects our lives. We conduct research and convey knowledge about the spiritual dimension to help people understand it, advise those who are curious to experience it for themselves, and guide those who have intense desire for spiritual growth and God-realisation towards achieving their goal.”
SSRF was founded with the blessings of His Holiness Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale. As a Consultant Clinical Hypnotherapist, he had learned that some of his patients with whom he had very little success, had recovered after adopting spiritual remedies such as visiting sacred places, remaining in the holy company of spiritually evolved people (Saints) or performing certain religious rituals. After interacting with Spritual minded people, he concluded that there are spiritual causes behind not just illnesses of patients, but also behind all major events and most problems in life. He worked tirelessly in the field of Spirituality to share with others his research into the understanding of the spiritual dimension using a scientific approach. The believers also believe in their ability to perceive the subtle dimension or the unseen world, or in other words, sixth sense.
The organization is based out of Australia, has very active member base in Europe, and also registered in the USA. Not sure what brought the workshop to the Dublin (California) Library, but it may be worth attending – even if just to get more exposed to the intriguing concept.
Check out this video on the concept:
Understand Your Child – Workshop will be conducted on February 3rd, 2012 – 7:00pm in Dublin, CA.
Parenting can prove to be a very rewarding experience in one’s life. Because of the changes in our lifestyles, values and human relations, parenting is also becoming a challenge with parents having to deal with many issues related to children’s behaviour. Often parents are found saying my kid
· Does not listen to me
· Jumps around and breaks many things
· Does not eat properly
· Is just glued to the TV all the time
· Is just not interested in studies, etc.
Understand Your Child workshop is a 2.5 hour interactive seminar from the Art of Living which helps parents deal with several such issues by finding the root cause behind them. It gives them an insight into how children think and thus a better understanding of their behavior. It points out small things that adults tend to overlook that may have a deep impact on children. Several hundred such workshops have been conducted benefiting many thousands of parents making their relationships with their children much more harmonious.
