Volunteer Opportunity: Clean San Ysidro Saturday 11/4

Dear residents and business owners of San Ysidro,

On November 4th from 8am to 12pm we will be holding a cleaning day on the streets of San Ysidro, as part of the Clean San Ysidro Limpio campaign, organized by the senior citizen group Los Años Dorados ( The Golden Years) and residents of San Ysidro community.

San Ysidro is an important economic and social reference, being considered the busiest border crossing in the world, and we have seen the need to keep our community clean.

The fact that it is the busiest border crossing makes us understand that it is the image of our culture and our nation. We believe that a dirty city doesn’t reflect our values, and for this reason we are inviting the residents of San Ysidro, visitors and tourists to join us on the cleaning day Clean San Ysidro Limpio.

On November 4th, a group of volunteers will be cleaning some streets of the San Ysidro community. Also, there will be five containers in strategic places of the community, so residents will be able to dispose of garbage items that are not collected by the weekly trash truck.

This event is the start of the Clean San Ysidro Limpio campaign, its purpose being to create awareness on the residents, visitors and tourists that a clean city is everybody’s responsibility.

We believe that the success of your businesses depends on the image perceived of this community. For this reason we are inviting you to participate with your personal or material support.

Needs:

Volunteers

5  12ft x 4ft banners

200 posters

 

Cleaning Tools (brooms, gloves, trash grabbers, dust pans, etc.)

Metallic trash cans

Gloves

Estimados residentes y negociantes de San Ysidro

El 4 de Noviembre de 8am a 12pm, se estará llevando a cabo un día de limpieza en las calles de San Ysidro, como parte de la campaña Clean San Ysidro Limpio, organizado por el grupo Los Años Dorados y residentes de la comunidad de San Ysidro.

San Ysidro es un punto de referencia importante tanto económico como social al ser considerado como el cruce fronterizo más transitado del mundo, por lo tanto hemos visto la necesidad de mantener limpia nuestra comunidad.

El hecho de ser el lugar más transitado nos hace entender que es el reflejo de nuestra cultura y nuestra nación. Consideramos que una ciudad sucia no refleja nuestros valores, por lo que estamos invitando a los residentes, visitantes y turistas a unirse al dia de limpieza Clean San Ysidro Limpio.

Este próximo 4 de Noviembre un grupo de voluntarios estaremos limpiando algunas calles de la comunidad de San Ysidro. Además, habrá cinco contenedores en lugares estratégicos de la comunidad para que los residentes puedan tirar la basura que normalmente no es recolectada por los camiones.

Este evento es parte del inicio de la campaña Clean San Ysidro Limpio, cuyo propósito es crear conciencia en los residentes, los visitantes y los turistas que la responsabilidad de la limpieza es de todos.

Consideramos que el éxito de sus negocios depende mucho de la imagen de esta comunidad. Por eso les estamos invitando a participar con su apoyo personal o material.

Voluntarios

Free Youth Heart Screening

Youth ages 12 to 25 are invited to get a free heart screening on Sunday, October 15th at Southwest High School between 9 am and 3 pm. Athletes should especially consider taking advantage of this opportunity.

 

The screening is offered by the Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation, which has screened over 23,000 teens for heart abnormalities that put about 1 in 300 students at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest – a leading cause of death under 25, and the #1 killer of student athletes. Heart screenings are not a part of annual checkups or pre-participation sports physicals, even though most heart conditions have no warning signs or unrecognized symptoms– which is why Eric’s Foundation screens for free.

 

Parents simply register at epsavealife.org/register/ to download a screening packet that you complete and bring to the event. Walk-ins are also accepted and paperwork is available onsite if online registration is not possible. Screenings take less than an hour. Parents don’t need to be present for youth who have a signed and completed screening packet.

 

Students wear a t-shirt, sweat pants or sports shorts to the screening. Girls wear a sports bra (no metal wires). Please bring a self-addressed stamped envelope in which a copy of your child’s EKG will be mailed back to you to add to their medical records.

LUNCH APPLICATIONS/SOLICITUD DE ALMUERZO

Dear SYH Parent,

We would like to share with you know how important it is to fill out a lunch application form. There are two important reasons to fill out this form:

  • If your child qualifies for free or reduced-price lunches, he or she qualifies for free or reduced-price breakfasts at school as well. We want to help your child eat healthy meals at school.
  • Your child may receive other school benefits. The number of applications that are returned and approved affects how much funding our school gets to help students meet their academic goals.   For example, this funding is currently paying for programs such as Morning Scholars, Homework Zone (tutoring), Saturday Academies, Parent Classes, etc.  Furthermore, students who qualify for free and reduced lunch may have their AP exams paid by the school, students who perform well on these exams can save hundreds of dollars in College fees.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this form so that your child may qualify for these important benefits.  Some parents are concerned about listing income amounts and social security numbers on the application.  Any personal information you provide will NOT be shared. We encourage all parents to apply as soon as possible since the deadline to qualify for school funding is October 1st, 2017.  You can submit an application in person at Nutrition Services at the Sweetwater District OR you may complete the application online.

Estimado padre de SYH,

Les escribimos para hacerle saber lo importante que es llenar una solicitud de almuerzo. Hay dos razones importantes para llenar este formulario:

  • Si su hijo califica para almuerzos gratuitos o de precio reducido, él o ella califica para desayunos gratis o a precio reducido. Queremos ayudar a su hijo a comer comidas saludables en la escuela.
  • Su hijo puede recibir otros beneficios escolares. El número de solicitudes que se devuelven y se aprueban afecta la cantidad de fondos que nuestra escuela obtiene para ayudar a los estudiantes a alcanzar sus metas académicas. Por ejemplo, este financiamiento está pagando por programas tales como Eruditos Mañaneros, Zona de Tarea (tutoría), Academias de Sábado, Clases de Padres, etc. Además, los estudiantes que califican para almuerzo gratis o reducido pueden tener sus exámenes AP pagados por la escuela.  Los estudiantes que realizan bien en estos exámenes pueden ahorrar cientos de dólares en honorarios de la universidad.

Por favor, tome unos minutos para llenar la solicitud para que su hijo califique para estos importantes beneficios. Algunos padres están preocupados por agregar cantidades de ingresos y números de seguro social en la solicitud. Cualquier información personal que usted proporcione NO será compartida.  Los animamos a que completen la solicitud de almuerzo los mas pronto posible ya que el plazo para calificar para recibir fondos es el 1 de octubre del 2017.
