Recently, the middle school yearbook elective class at Santa Margarita along with their teacher, Mrs. Maria Dean, accepted the donation of two cameras and a color printer.  The donation was sought out by the principal's secretary, Mrs. Annie Donner.  The class is so excited to learn more about basic photography, and even more excited to capture the special things that are happening on our very busy K-8 campus.  A huge thank you goes out to the Camp Pendleton Pacific Marine Credit Union!

Running Club

Santa Margarita’s Running Club

 

Attention parents/guardians!

 

I am looking for dedicated volunteers who can help restart our school-wide running club.  Essentially what happens is students complete laps around a coned area on the grass field by running, walking, etc.  The running club welcomes any students who want to get some exercise before school starts (8:30-8:55).  Volunteers will help supervise the course, stamp students’ hands after they complete each lap, and record students’ total laps.   If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail me the days/times you are available, and I will give you more details regarding when we plan to start the running club.

 

Best regards,

Mr. Ward (Marty.ward@oside.us)

Emotional Homecoming and Reunion for Brothers and Father

McIntyre had been deployed in Afghanistan the past seven months.  His wife Nicky, an instructional aide with OUSD, got a helping hand from Principal Jessica Poumele in surprising the boys.  Watch the emotional reunion in the video posted above.
