Valencia Park STEAM Magnet’s Beautification Committee, made up of students, joined forces with business professionals from EY and university students from SDSU and USD to paint, clean, organize and landscape.

The third annual San Diego Community Service Day, held April 12, is an opportunity to welcome the community to help the Valencia Park neighborhood campus.

Principal Lori Moore thanked all the volunteers, her school community and students for their hard work on a Saturday.

"One of the biggest recipients of the effort was the school library," she said. "Books were organized, shelves and furniture were moved and walls received a fresh coat of paint. The goal was to create a space for students and teachers to meet, research and plan together as the school moves toward a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) focused environment."

Ernst and Young, SDSU and USD are partners of particular interest because of the school’s new focus on STEAM education.

Valencia Park Elementary STEAM Magnet will be hosting tours for prospective parents from May 6 to July 8.
