NEWS RELEASE

San Diego Unified Honors Commitment to Military Supports with Holiday Card Drive
Help spread joy to single military members stationed in San Diego away from their families this holiday season

SAN DIEGO (December 8, 2017) In an effort to thank those who serve us year round, the San Diego Unified School District will launch the 1st annual Military Holiday card drive Monday December 11, 2017. The drive will run through Friday, December 15, 2017 12:00 p.m.

The district would like to honor their commitment to servicing San Diego's military families with a small gesture of gratitude to those military members stationed in San Diego away from their families this holiday season.

Year round the district assures military families that their children with receive the best public education possible by providing them with a variety of resources and services catered to their unique needs. Almost every school within the district services a child whose parent or guardian is serving or has served in our armed forces. San Diego Unified services the largest number of military connected students in the state of California. Overall, San Diego Unified serves over 13,000 military connected children and 6 military bases within district boundaries.

San Diego Unified is proud to support their military families with one on one supports in a variety of ways. This includes welcoming new families to their neighborhood school, offering services that help match them with similar educational programs they were enrolled in previously, as well as introductions to local military liaisons that can help with any issues or resources they may need. All district schools have military-friendly environments with programs, teachers and counselors trained to aid in the transition and adaptation of their incoming and outgoing military families.

Because of our strong connection to the military community, we are looking forward to helping spread some joy to them this time of year. Please join San Diego Unified in thanking our hometown heroes by donating a holiday card.

Drop off your signed holiday cards at San Diego Unified's Central office (main lobby) located at: 4100 Normal St. San Diego Ca 92103 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday, December 11, 2017 – Friday, December 15, 2017 (cards must be dropped off before 12:00 p.m. on Friday)

Part of the Linked Learning and California Career Pathway Trust Initiatives, SeaWorld's Ocean Link Lab is a project-based learning experience focusing on the park's Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Program. It allows students to develop an understanding of the life science sector through activities in the park, including topics such as water analysis, food supply and marine debris.

This next generation science aligned with experience weaves throughout the park and touches on both 6th and 8th grade curriculum standards. In addition to the science, students will become aware of careers at SeaWorld, the collaborative effort needed to run the park and provided an opportunity to think about how their strengths, interests and values align to the future world of work.

PROJECT OVERVIEW:

new field is striped for multiple sports, including soccer, field hockey and girls and boys lacrosse.

Project also includes a new parking lot, new sidewalks, upgrades to staff and student restrooms in

redesigned bus turnaround, student drop off, and pick up. The new parking lot features ornamental

pavers, light poles, tree wells, landscaping islands, perimeter landscaping, and a new bike rack.

This project provides improvements that satisfy accessibility and California Building Code

requirements.

administration offices, renovation of the food service area, and three new classroom/innovation

spaces in the library media center.

 

New air conditioning installation takes place in the existing science classroom building, library

media center, and auditorium. Campus wide upgrades include security, fire alarm, data and

communication infrastructure. The project provides accessibility and other improvements to satisfy

California Building Code requirements.

 

Beach & Bay Family YMCA Project: The YMCA's vision is to expand its presence in San Diego's

beach and bay communities by building a state-of-the-art YMCA fitness center in Pacific Beach in

partnership with the San Diego Unified School District. This new facility, located on the Pacific

Beach Middle School campus at the corner of Ingraham and Felspar, will partner with teachers,

staff and families to provide year-round care for local youth. While fundraising efforts to help build

the new facility are still ongoing, the Y currently offers a selection of programs for families to

participate in and help strengthen their spirit, body and mind.

 

The YMCA will unveil its new outdoor fitness area at the ceremony. The Y partnered with Aire

Fitness to provide the fully customized portable fitness studio with professional equipment. This will

soon be open to the public.

 

For more information on how to get involved in YMCA programs in Pacific Beach, visit

ymca.org/pacific-beach or call 858-273-9622.

 

BACKGROUND: San Diego Unified's capital projects are funded by San Diego Unified School District's

revitalize neighborhood schools. In addition to renovation and replacement, bond projects include classroom

technology, facilities to support College, Career and Technical Education, classroom air conditioning, safety

and security upgrades, and other facilities improvements at traditional and public charter schools throughout

San Diego Unified. Prop. S is a capital facilities program that is funded by a $2.1 billion general obligation

bond measure passed November 4, 2008. Prop. Z is a capital facilities program funded by a $2.8 billion

general obligation bond measure passed November 6, 2012. By law, the funds cannot be used for teachers'

or school administrators' salaries, nor can they be used for maintenance or operations.
