Office of Children and Youth in Transition receives national honor

The National Assistance League's Operation School Bell® Award was presented at a recent Board meeting by its local chapter to the San Diego Unified School District's Office of Children and Youth in Transition (CYT), led by Program Manager Vanessa Peters. The Assistance League of Greater San Diego forged a relationship with this office more than three years ago, and together they have developed a process that, in the last year alone, has enabled more than 200 of the hardest to reach children in San Diego to participate in Operation School  Bell (OSB). Peters is shown in photo holding the award with members of the local Assistance League.

Operation School Bell®, the signature philanthropy of the organization's 120  chapters nationwide,  began in the 1950's as a one-woman effort to provide clothing to disadvantaged children so that they could attend school. This year, Operation School Bell in Greater San Diego grew to provide new school necessities to more than 3,100 students in 70+ schools in eight school districts. Each child who visits Operation School Bell receives two complete school uniforms plus a jacket, underwear, socks, a hygiene kit, homework supplies and a brand new book. Satellite programs fit and purchase new clothing and shoes for qualified students at  community  retail stores. All  children  are  greeted  by  an  Assistance League (AL)  volunteer who guides them through the process  of selecting two complete outfits and needed supplies just for them.

The Office of Youth and Children in Transition works to support the continuity of education of students in transition including students in foster care, those experiencing homelessness, military dependents, and students who have refugee status. A goal of this office is to ensure students receive a quality education during transitional times when consistent attendance at a "home school" is too  often  interrupted.

A significant expansion of Assistance League of Greater San Diego's signature philanthropy - primarily supported with revenue from its Thrift Shop at First and University and donations from individuals and foundations - was made possible through collaboration with the office of Children and Youth in Transition. A series of special events brought busloads of 60 children at a time to AL's Chapter House in Hillcrest. CYT provides the bus, driver and supervision to travel across the city to pick up children in grades K through 6 whom have been identified as in critical need of assistance.

A group of eight educators from CYT welcomes the children to Operations School Bell and ensures professional supervision for the children while they wait their turn to try on clothes with an AL volunteer. As they wait, the children  are guided by the CYT team through the process of writing 'thank you' notes, building with Legos, making puzzles and playing educational games. When the last child is fitted with what may be his or her first new clothes and only book at home, the group gets back on the bus and each child is safely delivered to his school or family.

Assistance League of Greater San Diego nominated Office of Children and Youth in Transition for this national award for many reasons:

1. The staff has the expertise to identify children in need who are often missed by individual schools that may not have the chance to recognize their needs before they move on.

2. Educators worked with OSB leaders to work out a plan that works for our organizations' strengths and to meet the students' needs.

3. CYT has eliminated the transportation barrier that has limited OSB outreach to the neediest populations.

4. The events have been replicated with consistent success and positive outcomes.

5. Potential funders have attended the events, resulting in significant grant income to purchase clothing and supplies.

6. CYT has been a positive voice about Assistance League's impact on the community.

7. Presenting the award to CYT can bring public awareness of the needs of San Diego's school-aged population.

2015 marks the Assistance League of Greater San Diego's 50th year of serving San Diego. To learn more about the Assistance League of Greater San Diego and Operation School Bell, visit www.assistanceleaguegreatersandiego.org.

Eat smart, play hard at this summer's free lunch program

Where can you enjoy a great BBQ, see the circus, play hard, win prizes and rub elbows with the mayor AND the Padres Friar all for free? – the Summer Fun Café Kickoff BBQ, of course! The barbecue is Thursday, June 25 from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at Skyline Hills Community Park, 8285 Skyline Drive (92114).

The kickoff event will feature San Diego’s own Fern Street Circus with jugglers, acrobats, aerialists and live music. A free BBQ lunch for all children and accompanying adults will be provided. This family-friendly event will also feature the San Diego Padres Friar and Pad Squad, fun games with lots of prizes, an inflatable jumper, crafts, music and prize drawings.

Summer is a difficult nutritional time for many children. Not only does food insecurity increase among low-income families during the summer months, but children are also at greater risk for obesity as they lose access to the school meals they rely on during the school year. The summer meal program gives children the nutritious meals they need to remain healthy throughout the summer. 

San Diego Unified’s Summer Fun Café meals also support the community’s other summer programs and help draw children into educational, enrichment and recreational activities that keep them learning, engaged, active and safe during school vacation.  The EAT SMART. PLAY HARD. theme translates to eating healthy food and being physically active every day.

“It is important that San Diego learns about this valuable summer lunch program for children,” said Gary Petill, San Diego Unified¹s Food Services Director.  “It’s fun, it’s free, it’s easy and when the kids head back to school in the fall, they will be strong and ready to learn.”

San Diego Unified has offered the summer lunch program since 2003, and now serves nearly 250,000 meals and snacks each summer. The program is funded through the United States Department of Agriculture’s “Seamless Summer Feeding Option” and will be at 58 sites: 27 park and recreation centers, 14 community and military sites, and 17 schools.  For a complete schedule and locations, go to www.sandi.net/food and select Summer Fun Café or go to http://www.211sandiego.org/summerlunch. Participating in the program requires no paperwork, reservations or income qualifications.

More than 1,500 children and their parents/guardians are expected to attend the kickoff event. The community resource fair at the event provides participants with a wide variety of information about services from community partners.  Additionally, every family goes home with a bag of fresh fruit and vegetables from the San Diego Food Bank or Feeding America San Diego.  The San Diego Honda Dealers are underwriting the cost of the adult meals at the kickoff event, and General Mills is sponsoring parent participation in other BBQ events.

Foster Elementary fourth-grader designs winning sunglasses

The future is so bright at Foster Elementary School that students all over campus are wearing shades. Cool, new shades called “Striker” designed by fellow classmate, Evan Bui.

 Foster Elementary Student Evan Bui and family
 Contest winner Evan Bui and family with Knockaround founder Adam Moyer.
Bui’s blue and orange creation with lightening bolts was selected from among more than 300 designs submitted by students at three elementary schools that participated in a design contest sponsored by ArtReach and Knockaround Sunglasses.

Knockaround Sunglasses brought Bui’s design to life and company founder Adam Moyer presented pairs to all fourth- and fifth-grade students at Foster Elementary at their June 10 awards ceremony. They also received a small magazine that included images and concepts with all the student’s designs.

The sunglasses are sold as the company’s Limited Edition Class Acts Sunglasses and available to the general public for purchase on Knockaround’s website. All proceeds from sales are donated to the participating elementary schools, and ArtReach, to help fund the program in schools next year.

The contest was made possible through ArtReach’s partnership with Knockaround Sunglasses, a local sunglasses manufacturer. Every year Knockaround visits local elementary schools to talk about the importance of art and give students the opportunity to design a pair of sunglasses.

ArtReach takes artists into schools throughout San Diego County to provide visual arts instruction. They provide free workshops that give sequential, standards-based art lessons to Title I schools that meet other need criteria.

K-9 Officer Blitz helps with drug prevention and awareness

When it comes to drug prevention and awareness, K-9 Officer Blitz is truly top dog.

Blitz, the K-9 Officer Blitz is a Certified Narcotics Detection Dog who joined School Police Services in May 2014 as part of the district’s ongoing effort to eliminate dangerous drugs from our campuses.

Since joining the School Police Canine Program, Blitz has been working like a dog. Along with his partner and best friend, School Police Officer John Pasenelli, Blitz has conducted more than 70 unannounced sniffs on middle and high school campuses at the request of the school principals. Blitz does not sniff individuals but passively indicates that he's detected a narcotic odor if he comes across an odor, regardless of where the odor emanates. All visits are in accordance with city, state and federal laws.

Blitz and Officer Pasenelli have also been passionately sharing School Police Service’s drug prevention and awareness messages to more than 13,000 K-12 students as well as over 3,400 community members at events such as National Night Out, Crime Stoppers Light the Night, Girl Scout Troops and the Kiwanis Club of San Diego. Their message to San Diego Unified students and the community is clear: Keep our students safe and our campuses drug free.

School Police obtained Blitz through a $60,000 grant from the San Diego Police Foundation. The monies were earmarked to purchase a narcotics detection canine, equipment and training. School Police sought the grant for this program to support middle and high principals who wanted the services but could not afford them due to limited and reduced budgets. School Police is now able to provide this valuable program free to the district along with vital age-specific anti-drug education.

During the summer months, Blitz will be doing his homework by training hard for next school year. He and Officer Pasenelli are looking forward to visiting with more students next year to talk about the importance of saying no to drugs.

For more information about the School Police Canine Program and how you can invite Blitz to your school for anti-drug education and assemblies, visit www.sandi.net/Page/55995.

Schools, work sites impacted by state-mandated water use restrictions

As most of us are aware, California is in a multi-year drought. In April, Governor Brown mandated water use restrictions and reductions to begin Monday, June 1, 2015, and remain in place until Feb 28, 2016.

When in drought, save every day, every way As a result, the district's Auxiliary Services has created water restrictions for school and work sites. These state-mandated restrictions will impact various district work practices, which should result in the 16 percent monthly reduction of water use as compared to the water used each month of 2013.  

The restrictions were developed with the health and well-being of staff, students and parents as the priority while complying with state-mandated water use restrictions.

Irrigation, particularly grass, uses the most water in the district. Watering for lawns will be reduced or stopped, which will result in lawns turning brown over the summer. Playfields, trees and shrubs will be watered and maintained for education activities. Watering school education gardens will be limited to Mondays and Fridays before 10 a.m. for no more than 10 minutes for any area. All student car washes are strictly prohibited.

Saving water is everyone’s responsibility. Below are some simple guidelines to follow everyday:
  • While washing hands, turn off water between application of soap

  • Listen for toilet leaks and report immediately to POS/BSS

  • Watch for leaking faucets and drinking fountains and report immediately to POS/BSS 
Practice diligence in reporting water leaks with a work order. Submit a repair request to pposervices.sandi.net or call 858- 627-7250 to have it placed in a high-priority status. This applies to anything from dripping faucets to toilet and irrigation leaks.

If you have questions or need more information, contact Darin Vey, Energy/Utilities Program Supervisor at dvey@sandi.net .

For more information on water-saving tips and programs, visit whenindrought.org.

Video and broadcast journalism students earn accolades

Students in the district’s Career Technical Education (CTE) video and broadcast journalism programs are being recognized for their skills in video production, recently earning high honors from both the Waste No Water Film Contest, hosted by the City of San Diego, and the San Diego County Office of Education’s Innovative Video in Education or iVIE Awards.

Film icon Point Loma High’s Cinematic Arts program won first and third place in the Waste No Water Film Contest, which challenges high school and college students to create 30-second public service announcements that emphasize the importance of responsible water use.

Trevor Sykes and Austin Correia won for their film "Water Cops." It will play this summer before each movie shown at the AMC Mission Valley, AMC Bonita and Edwards Mira Mesa cinemas.

Tyler Pasela placed third for his film "Cat Possible."

The videos are available for viewing on the San Diegans Waste No Water Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SanDiegansWasteNoWater

At the iVIE Awards, students from Serra, Hoover and Mira Mesa high schools won in their respective categories. A total of 10 video productions were nominated from San Diego Unified CTE programs. All iVIE nominated videos are shown on ITV Cable 16 in a series called "The Best of iVIE" and are also available on Time Warner's On Demand channel.
