Thieves recently stole 50 bikes and safety gear from in front of Maya Lin School, where Cycles of Change was teaching bike safety. Cycles of Change works to help hundreds of children learn how to bike safely to school and in their neighborhoods. The Alameda Sun joins the City of Alameda in asking the community to set this right.

Bicycle donations are being accepted at:

 

Monday, Aug. 21, on my first day ever at Wood Middle School, I witnessed my first eclipse. Since it was the first day of school and an eclipse, the teachers planned a special day. I could see the telescopes being set up on the playground before school. After that we got special glasses that we decorated any way we wanted. We stayed with our advisory classes all day and learned about the math and history of eclipses.
