PB Elementary

- On Friday, Dec. 1, students and teachers celebrated Pacific Beach Elementary's school custodian, Sheri Purry, with cards, flowers, and praise. The ceremony was the idea of a student at the school who wanted to honor Sheri's hard work, kind spirit, and positive attitude.

Barnard Elementary

- Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School’s student chess team continues to collect trophies at local and national chess competitions. Six students spent Thanksgiving weekend at the American Open Tournament in Costa Mesa, one of the longest-running chess tournaments in the U.S. Third grader Daniel M. took first place after winning all five of his games in the kindergarten to third grade U600 section. Second grader Jaxon W. competed in the K–12th grade U1200 section and took second place after winning four out of five games. In total, the Barnard team won four trophies from individual and team rounds, placing third overall in their respective sections. More Barnard students competed on Dec. 3, in the San Diego Chess Club Winter Scholastic 2017, a local tournament in Balboa Park.

Kate Sessions

- The Friends of Kate Sessions would like to extend a huge "thank you" to the Mission Bay Real Estate Association for including us in their annual fundraiser, The Don Brown Links For Learning Golf Tournament. Sessions was presented with a check for $3,000. This money helps fund programs that the district no longer supports such as music, art and library as well as field trips and extra teacher supplies. 

- Sessions would also like to thank the Family Dine-out Partners who have donated a percentage of sales back to the school.  These include Woodstock's Pizza, Pueblo, Yogurt on the Rocks, Iron Pig, Chronic Tacos and Chipotle.

FOPBSS

- Family Dine Out take place on Dec. 16 at Frat Boy Donuts and Stuffed! Gourmet donuts and gourmet stuffed burgers, sandwiches, and mac and cheese. All day at 1380 Garnet Ave.

Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools thanks all who came out to the Green Gardens Holiday Shopping Fundraiser. A special thank you to Bridget Santos for organizing the event and to Green Gardens employees for donating their time.
