HABLEMOS received a $1500 grant from Target Stores
to add music enrichment classes to the
Kindergarten/First Grade curriculum
at Gardner Academy.
Thank you, Target Stores!
HABLEMOS will have a clean-up day
on Saturday, November 8th, at Gardner Academy
from 10 am to 2 pm.
We will have a number of school families and teachers on campus
picking up litter, doing gardening projects, sweeping, raking &
Please come help!
North Willow Glen residents Kathryn Billington, Corina
Vera and other Gardner Academy parents and teachers have formed a club
for parents and others interested in supporting Gardner Academy. HABLEMOS!
Supporters of Gardner Academy' is set up as a non-profit with
membership granted to anybody interested in supporting the school (you
just have to attend one meeting to register your interest). Over 125
teachers & parents have gotten involved in activities so far and
it would be great to get additional community involvement.
Much of the clubs effort is going into assuring that the school
fully benefits from Measure C dollars during the summer renovations.
Additional efforts are now underway to secure Measure F dollars for
further improvements to the school. We have been reassured by the school
district that despite the budget crisis, Measure C dollars and Measure
F dollars will be available to make desperately needed improvements
to Gardners physical facilities. We are also pursuing funds to
upgrade the fencing around the perimeter of the school.
HABLEMOS! has also taken action to improve the schools appearance.
The club organized two school clean-up days, with 100+ hours of volunteer
labor spent picking up trash, sweeping, clearing gutters of leaves,
planting flowers, etc. HABLEMOS! volunteers also designed and built
a new redwood bridge for the on-campus California Science Habitat garden.
