Eastside’s student community service club, the Interact Club, spent a day with their Menlo Park Rotary advisers at the Fall Leadership Conference with 150 other Interact members from high schools around the Bay Area. Students learned leadership skills and spent time getting to know other students. Thank you to the Menlo Park Rotary Club for providing financial support to Eastside and for teaming up with our students for this special event!
