Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary Holds Parent Resource Fair

A parent gets information at Fair.
Not only was Sept. 4 the first day of school, it was the day of the first Parent Resource Fair at Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary School in Clairemont.

Parents were able to find out about more than 20 local youth organizations that provide before- and after-school activities, tutoring, lessons and other ways to enrich student lives.

"This was a fabulous collaboration and we hope to make it an annual event," said Deanne Rohde, Principal of Lindbergh/Schweitzer.

The school's PTA provided breakfast at the event, which was organized by PTA member Emily Dolton and Andrea Bazer, the school's adaptive physical education teacher.

The San Diego Public Library, SAY San Diego Collaborative, Boys and Girls Club, Heartlight, USA Karate, Soccer Shots, and Cecily's Closet  had booths, along with The Crimson Center for Speech, Coast Music Therapy, WIC/San Diego Foundation, Tiny Pros, Boys and Girls Scouts, BiLingual Kids, Sports for Exceptional Athletes, UCSD First Grade Research Project, Dr. Albert Leung, D.D.S., Miracle League, United Cerebral Palsy, Area Board XII State Council,  San Diego Family Magazine, and Three Treasures Cultural Arts and Kung Fu.
