As a parent, Jennifer Rubendall has been active in the school district that has served her two teenage boys. She has held positions as PTA president of Palm Crest Elementary School and La Cañada High School 7/8.
Rubendall, 47, currently serves on the executive board at the high school while running a small business in the city: Urban Fitness Pilates Studio. She spoke about her campaign for the La Cañada school board with the Valley Sun at her studio on Foothill Boulevard.
Valley Sun: You mentioned Common Core, the parcel tax and other current issues facing the district. Are those your main motivations for running?
Rubendall: It all came together. I’ve always wanted to be a part of making things happen and at PTA, you’re kind of bound to that one school that you’re with and in this case, it’s [LCHS 9-12] and I feel I can help a lot more in the community with this position.
