Donahue Fitzgerald, Law in Walnut Creek, CA

A Brief History
In 1883 Robert M. Fitzgerald opened his legal practice, making our firm the oldest continuing law firm in the entire state of California. Over the next 30 years, Mr. Fitzgerald formed a partnership with colleagues Carl H. Abbott and Charles A. Beardsley. In 1918 Judge William H. Donahue resigned from his position as Alameda County Superior Court Judge and William H.L. Hynes resigned as Alameda County District Attorney and founded the firm Donahue and Hynes. The two firms would later join forces to continue a strong history of legal excellence and community service.

Oak Grove Elementary School, Education in Porterville, CA

Welcome to Oak Grove Elementary School, where we strive to capture kids hearts! Our school is a great place to be for many reasons. We are a neighborhood school with an enrollment of over 580 students ranging in grades K-6. We aim for our school to be a close family experience for staff and children, alike. It is my privilege to be a part of such a powerful and committed school community. In my service as principal, I take much pride in a staff works diligently to maintain high educational standards for every child. Our curriculum is rigorous and challenging and will continue to be so with the ongoing implementation of the Common Core State Standards. Through these standards, we are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that each child is college and world by the time he/she completes high school. The process begins in elementary school. Our goal is to teach students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively both orally and in print, and to utilize technology in relevant ways. We strive to prepare children to be thoughtful, responsible citizens who will be ready to take their place in the world.

The 2016-17 schoolyear will continue an unprecedented commitment of technology resources to Oak Grove Elementary School students. Burton School District has invested in the futures of our Star students in the following ways: Every student in grades 3-6 will have access to 1:1 ipad devices in the classroom. Students in grades K-2 will have access to ipad devices at a 2:1 ratio. This technology commitment will provide the students of Burton School District invaluable access in new ways to the community and world in which they live.

We believe in giving our children the tools to succeed academically. They also experience their instruction in an environment that promotes academic risk-taking and nurtures a love of learning. In order to be successful, students need support from both home and school. We are committed to working collaboratively with our parents to provide results oriented instruction that focuses on the growth and achievement of each student. We count on our parents to partner with us as we continue our mission to provide a world class education to each child. We encourage our parents to take an active role in the academic growth of the students by reading to your children, conducting rich and meaningful conversations in the car, at the dinner table… We also expect that our parents will encourage children to persevere in the face of challenges and never give up.

We want Oak Grove to be a place where the voices of the parents and community are heard. If you have ideas, thoughts, or concerns you would like to share, we would love to hear them.
