PTA Celebrates 75 Years at Lindbergh Schweitzer Elementary

PTA Members Celebrate
PTA members Mary Morgan and Rita Brandt hold the California Ninth District Legacy Award Certificate

Back in 1935, a new home cost $3,925 and a gallon of gas was 10 cents. A new Studebaker automobile would set you back $665 and a ladies swimsuit was $6.95.

And in San Diego, a new school called Sunshine School was opening to help disabled students. A PTA was formed at that school, then located on 35th Street.

Fast forward to 2011, what was Sunshine School is now the legacy of Lindbergh-Schweitzer Elementary School in Clairemont, and the PTA is still active and involved in helping kids and their school.

To honor this legacy, the Ninth District PTA recently recognized the school, its parents and community with a Legacy Award Certificate.
