Many of our learners received their first book thanks to Ms.Taleen’s efforts and donations already received. Your child will continue to receive a free book every month, but we need your support. Our goal is to keep this program alive and thriving so that ALL of our learners receive one free book every month.
The following message is brought to you by our Reading Specialist Mrs.Taleen Stevens:
“Hi, friends! It is my DREAM to get a new book in the hands of each student at my school each month. For $10, you can sponsor a learner at my school, and he or she will get a new book every month for a year! I will personally be donating some money from my Sips and Giggles Studio profits, but to reach my goal and make my dream come true, I created a GoFundMe.
Please donate if you can, share if you want, and support us on our journey to inspire EVERY child to love to learn.”
Click here and Donate a new book to a child, every month.
After donating, you may leave a comment stating you are a parent of an iLEAD Learner.
A team of iLEAD students is preparing to send a science experiment aboard the SpaceX-16 Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station (ISS) scheduled to launch on December 4.
The project is part of a partnership between iLEAD and DreamUp, the leading provider of space-based educational opportunities. The students’ experiment, which will be on the ISS for approximately four weeks, tests whether black coffee kills a type of bacteria found in everyday plaque on teeth in microgravity in the same way it does on Earth. This launch opportunity is made possible via DreamUp’s partnership with NanoRacks and its Space Act Agreement with NASA.

We will start each 6-week session with a thematic topic and guide the learners to explore multiple aspects of it. This will include a fun activity, a group discussion, and individual guidance from the Educational Facilitator (EF). During each session, EFs will provide materials, mini-lessons, activities, guidance, and expertise on an as-needed basis to support each learner with their thematic project. Parents will be updated on how they can support at home, if needed. By the end of each session, the learners who engage with the available resources will provide evidence of their growth that is related to an authentic experience!
Cost: Studio Class prices have been discounted to only $75 each per 6-week session.

There is ongoing litigation between the California Department of Education and the Concerned Parent Association. A notice issued by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson states, “The lawsuit accuses CDE of widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.”
The court has ordered CDE to release student and parent information to provide personally identifiable information (PII) – an act that can only be taken as an exception to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, we are providing notice of the court order and directions to anyone wishing to object.
Please be advised that CDE will notify parents or students of whom are required to disclose information and those individuals may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure using the PDF link below:
