Nightmare on Puberty Street Coming!
Growing up might seem tough…but it doesn’t have to be a nightmare! Follow Jerry, Malika, Natalie, and Nick as they navigate the rollercoaster of adolescence and wrestle with the age-old question, “Am I normal?” Through a fast-paced show featuring current music and dance, Nightmare on Puberty St. encourages students to talk about critical health issues and ask questions.
By bringing sometimes embarrassing issues to life in an entertaining, engaging format, this program teaches young people that they are not alone and sets the stage for follow-up discussions in class and at home. Nightmare on Puberty St. is presented free of charge to schools and communities throughout Northern California.

Low Cost Internet Access
We have been working with a national nonprofit, EveryoneOn, to assist families in being able to afford Internet access. The website the parents go to is http://everyoneon.org/wjusd. Currently the Internet provider in the area is T-Mobile. The lower cost plan is $10 a month plus a one time payment of $69 for the hot spot/mi-fi. This plan provides limited “fast” Internet access and unlimited “slower” Internet access.
RIDE YOUR BIKES TO SCHOOL!
Need a bike, helmet or lock? Got a flat? Want to donate your old bikes and get a bigger size or different style. The Woodland Bike Campaign invites parents, students and staff to come to their BIKE WORKSHOP every Wednesday from 2pm-5pm and SATURDAYS from 9am-noon, located at 1ST& HAYS (behind Douglass Middle School). Many ready to roll, mechanic-tested bikes are available for $30-$95 (cash only). Bike mechanics and a certified cycling instructor are on hand to help you with your biking needs. Ask about our internship program and community service credit.
