Alameda Middle School Jr. Meat Ultimate Frisbee!

 

  • Open to all Alameda girls and boys in grades 6-8
  • Fun, inclusive, co-ed team sport
  • Non-contact and everyone plays
  • Beginners welcome!

Ultimate Frisbee is an exciting, non-contact team sport played with a flying disc. It’s a fast-paced game, where players develop razor-sharp throwing skills and immense stamina and agility. There’s a reason Ultimate is one of the fastest-growing team sports in the country—it’s just plain FUN!

Lum School Update

As many already know, the BoE voted to move students and staff from the site immediately after the school year ends on June 8.  There are no definite plans known on where they will go and what will happen to the site.  The loss of our neighbor, and of a neighborhood elementary school, has many repercussions, not least among them the devastation to the Lum community. Please support Lum students and staff however you can.  Students can earn community service hours by helping to pack or move. You can also stop by the makeshift memorial by the marquee to leave notes.

​Hands Across Alameda, Earth Day April 22, 10AM

A moment to come together as one

Hands Across Alameda, is a Citywide Event this Earth Day, to Celebrate our Island’s Diversity. Everyone Belongs Here and Everyone is Welcome at this Free, Family Friendly Event!

The idea and goal is to form a human chain reaching across Alameda Beach holding hands in a demonstration of unity, support, and to be mindful of one another.

This is a NOT a political event, it is a CommUNITY event . It is intended to bring all walks of life and faiths together. It is simply a celebration of life and unity.

After Hands across Alameda, ARPD will kick off the Earth Day Event with games, exhibits, and activities for kids/families, petting zoo, jumpers, and more.

Free parking at Crown Memorial Beach Lot and Bike Valet will be available.
