In partnership with the Golden State Warriors, the Ed Fund, and the Oakland Unified School District, Lesley West is giving away brand-new dresses to any Oakland student who needs one—1,000 free dresses in all. (See video of Lesley's 2015 giveaway when she and her husband, Warriors forward David West, lived in Indianapolis.)
Students simply sign up for a time slot on Saturday, April 29,browse the Dressed by West collection at Oakland High School (1023 MacArthur Blvd.), then walk out with the perfect dress.
After 32 years with the Oakland Unified School District, Dewey Academy Principal Robin Glover will be retiring at the end of the 2017 school year. The Oakland Unified School District will form a Principal Recommendation Committee (PRC) at Dewey Academy. The committee will consist of 4 parents, 3 teachers, 2 classified employees, 1 active or retired OUSD administrator, 1 community representative, and 2 students (at secondary level).
We are asking for (4) parents to be part of the selection process.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 28, 2017 if you are interested in being on the committee.
Please read the document below for details.
Cap and Gowns will be delivered to the school site May 31, 2017 @ 11:15am.
