NEWS RELEASE: Select Porter Elementary students get new bikes thanks to San Diego Unified School Police program

News Release from San Diego Unified School District, Dec. 8, 2016

Select Porter Elementary students get new bikes thanks to San Diego Unified School Police Department program

Nearly 30 students at Porter Elementary gathered on the school’s blacktop waiting for members of the San Diego Unified School Police Department to finish “shining their shoes.” What these officers were really doing was grabbing a new bicycle that each of these students was receiving – and delivering it to them, helmet and all.

The bicycle giveaway is part of True Blue Buddies, a year-long mentorship program involving members of the San Diego Unified School Police Department and select elementary students.

“Remember this day – you’re going to have a blast with your True Blue Buddy,” said Chief Rueben Littlejohn to the students before the big surprise. “Our officers stopped what they were doing today because they wanted to spend time with their buddies…but they wouldn’t tell me what they wanted to do. It’s a surprise, they told me.”   

Each of the students received a new bicycle and helmet, then participated in a bike rodeo put on by the San Diego Bike Coalition and enjoyed lunch with their buddy, courtesy of San Diego Unified’s Food and Nutrition Services.

“Our students were so excited to see their buddies bringing out bicycles. Many have never had their own bike before,” said Porter Elementary Principal Lillie McMillan. “But this program is about much more than bicycles. It’s an opportunity for our students to develop relationships with the officers and have someone they can look up to and receive mentoring from. It’s a special program with great possibilities.”

The bikes and helmets were provided by members of San Diego Unified School Police, the San Diego Bike Coalition and a personal donation on behalf of fallen San Diego Police Department officer Jonathan DeGuzman. 

The primary goal of the True Blue Buddies mentorship program is to provide support through small group mentoring, as well as to help facilitate and build positive relationships between police officers and students at an early age. In addition to mentoring, they hold 3-4 events throughout the year, including a shopping trip, Thanksgiving feast and an end-of-year lunch. This is the second year of the program. Last year, select students from Walker Elementary in Mira Mesa participated.

Media Advisory - Mission Readiness, San Diego Unified Host Physical Activity Demonstration Promoting Student Health

Media Advisory from San Diego Unified School District, Nov. 30, 2016

WHO: Participants available for interviews:

WHAT: Education, community, and military leaders will gather Thursday, December 1, to highlight the importance of increasing physical activity during the school day.

Further, obesity has become the leading medical disqualifier for military service.

 

Mission: Readiness in partnership with San Diego Unified School District will feature physical activity best practices that are not only effective at getting kids active, but can also help them concentrate and perform better in the classroom.

 

Officials from the San Diego Unified School District will highlight IMPACT (Increasing Movement and Physical Activity in Class Time), a physical education program designed to keep local elementary students moving despite the lack of physical education classes in underserved San Diego schools. Increasing physical activity is just one example of how San Diego Unified is working to improve the health of all students. The District is also providing healthy school food, trauma-informed care, and other services to make health happen at San Diego Unified.

 

WHEN:          Thursday, December 1, 2016

9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. PST

 

WHERE:        Franklin Elementary School, 4481 Copeland Ave, 92116

 

CONTACT:    For more information or to set up an interview, contact –

- Meghan Moroney: 415-450-1913 or mmoroney@missionreadiness.org

- Jennifer Cornelius Rodriguez: 619-847-6029 or  jcornelius@sandi.net

 

ABOUT: Mission: Readiness is the national security nonprofit organization of over 650 retired admirals, generals, and other retired senior military leaders calling for smart investments in America’s children. It is a part of Council for a Strong America, the umbrella nonprofit for five membership organizations comprising the unique and powerful voices of retired military, business, law enforcement, faith and sports, working together to prepare young Americans for success in school and in life.

 

San Diego Unified School District serves more than 130,000 students in pre-school through grade 12 and is the second largest district in California. The student population is extremely diverse, representing more than 15 ethnic groups and more than 60 languages and dialects. San Diego Unified School District is proud to call itself one of the top large urban school districts in the United States. Measures include its top scores on state and national tests, its leadership in areas such as technology, curriculum, neighborhood and specialty schools, career-technical education and food services. Its graduates include Hall of Fame sports stars, along with some of the nation's top scientists, writers and leaders.

Media Advisory--San Diego school leaders rally to protect and support all students

Media Advisory from the San Diego Unified School District, Nov. 21, 2016

 

San Diego school leaders rally to protect and support all students.

 

Countywide rally called for Old Town on December 14 to stand with students.

 

SAN DIEGO—On Monday, November 21 School leaders from across San Diego County are pledging to keep their schools open and welcoming for all students, despite the recent election campaign that left some students and their families feeling vulnerable. The group is calling for allies across the political spectrum to stand with students at a countywide rally being planned for December 14 in Old Town, San Diego. The December rally to support students is being organized by the San Diego Unified School District Office of Family and Community Engagement.

 

“We want every child in San Diego, California and the nation to know that schools are safe places, where you are welcome, no matter your religious background, gender identity or country of national origin,” said Superintendent Cindy Marten of San Diego Unified. “We refuse to let our students be defined by the way others see them. For us, students are defined by their dreams, and we support the dreams of every single one of our students.”

 

Following the recent presidential election, schools have heard from their teachers and staff that many students are feeling vulnerable. Leaders from the LGBTQIA, Muslim, organized labor and Latino immigrant communities have expressed their support for the planned Old Town march in December. The march to support students is being called a celebration of light in recognition of the special significance this time of year holds for many communities.

 

“We want to bring everyone together from across the political spectrum, across all racial and ethnic groups and across all communities in our county to say we support students,” said Richard Barrera, San Diego Unified School Board Member. “What we need now is not more division. What we need now is unity, tolerance and respect for others. That is what we will be marching for on December 14, and we hope the whole county will come out to support our students.”
