Last year, Julia Villano, a student at Tilden’s Walnut Creek campus, performed the song, Never Be Alone by Shawn Mendes, using only American Sign Language (which she, of course, learned at Tilden!)
We just found out that Julia had a chance to meet Shawn Mendes and show him her video. Naturally, he loved it!
We are so proud of Julia and impressed with not only her skills in American Sign Language, but also her confidence to show the world what she can do, and share her translation with the original artist.
Tilden Albany is holding a Food Drive with the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB). We have two barrels, neither of which are full yet! The barrels will be picked up next week. Please bring your non-perishable food items for donation by Monday morning. Thank you for your contributions!
Imagine this: You are all dressed up for Halloween and have a plate of homemade cookies all ready to share with your friends and teachers. You walk into the study hall room. Robin Hood, Snow White, and even Gandalf stand before you, all happily chatting and enjoying the delicious food.
That was the scene on Thursday, October 31st at Tilden. We had a blast trying out the wonderful dishes that people brought. Also, all of the costumes were amazing! We hope you had as great of a Halloween as we did! Trick-or-Treat!
