Elizabeth Schuck is a long time educator and Coastside resident. You may know Liz
from our community, through CUSD and Rotary. Liz is coming to speak to us about
The Big Lift. Information from this organization’s website states: “In 2013, San Mateo
county leaders made a bold commitment to help all our kids succeed and participate
in the booming Silicon Valley knowledge economy. This is a bold social venture that
aims to transform early learning. The Big Lift combines high-quality and connected
learning experiences from preschool to third grade. It offers programs to help close
the achievement gap and end summer learning loss.”
Both Annie and Liz have a lot to share with us, so don’t miss this meeting!
