Cabrillo Students, San Diego Police Collect Teddy Bears

Students at Cabrillo Elementary show off their teddy bears.
Cabrillo Elementary partnered with the San Diego Police Department to collect nearly 100 Teddy Bears for the kids staying at Rady Children’s Hospital. Principal Nestor Suarez and the officers and representatives of the Associated Student Body encouraged each classroom to participate in this charitable drive.

Cabrillo Elementary has a student population of around 200, so with nearly 100 bears collected, it represents participation from roughly half of our students! The winning class, Ms. Dieli’s First Grade, collected 27 new stuffed animals with tags attached, which is more than one per student! Congratulations to Ms. Dieli’s class, the Cabrillo students and ASB for a job well done!
