PTA PERFECTION . . . The Palo Alto Council of PTAs was recently awarded two California State PTA Awards at the 107th annual statewide convention in Anaheim. The local council was honored with the Outreach Award for its leadership in launching the Bridge of Caring program, a long-term effort to provide support and relief to schools in Louisiana damaged by Hurricane Katrina. The Palo Alto Council was also this year's recipient of the Advocacy Award for its communication efforts on behalf of local ballot measures. The group was also recognized for its legislative advocacy efforts, which have included letter-writing campaigns and speaker events with locally elected state representatives.
