The United States Marines have been important partners with the students and staff of Lindbergh Schweitzer Elementary Magnet School in Clairemont for more than three decades.
Every two weeks,
four service members arrive to spend the day helping students in
various classrooms, rotating to all different grade levels as part of
the Adopt-A-School Program. They may start the day with P.E. teacher
Mary Lou Baranowski-Drews and her musical “Movin’
with Mary Lou” morning P.E. class or visit other classes
during English or Math.
members return year-after-year to visit the students and are amazed at
the technology used in the classrooms.
this school year will be a sign-in wall, which includes a map of the
United States and North America, where the service members will sign in
and show where they are from. This display will be posted at the end of
the year Multi-Cultural Fair showing the parents and community how
Lindbergh Schweitzer provides opportunities for student engagement with
these heroes who arrive from all over the country to serve in the
Schweitzer’s Magnet focus is Service Learning, and what better
examples and role models than these military heroes!
