January 26, 2018 was Civic Service Day

Friday, January 26, was another school-wide, Civic Service Day. e3 scholars reported directly to their service site for a day of volunteerism and giving back. We are proud to make an impact on our community through service and compassion.

In addition, we had a special project in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. where e3 Civic High supported the San Diego Food Bank in their mission to provide food justice to the citizens of San Diego. Thus far, our scholars have completed more than 13,000 hours of civic service to our community!

Featured in Education Week

Showcasing Creativity in School Construction: New school designs are supporting the academic goals of educators—and in some cases, pushing the boundaries of K-12 architecture.

Flexible learning spaces, enhanced technology, environmentally friendly features, and co-location are all characteristics being incorporated into innovative new school buildings and projects.

"Schools are actually becoming more sophisticated learning environments," said John Dale, a principal and studio leader at the architecture firm Harley Ellis Devereaux, based in Los Angeles. "They're more nuanced and doing a better job at taking into account the different ways in which learning takes place." "Green schools," for example, save energy and money, and often educate students about their methods and provide opportunities for study. New buildings that move away from long hallways with closed classrooms toward more interactive spaces promote collaboration around instruction and learning.

One of the hottest trends in new school construction is co-location, said Sarah Luchs, a program officer at Next Generation Learning Challenges, which often works with schools that are transforming academically—and sometimes architecturally.

Schools are being built on the campuses of technology companies, in libraries, and in conjunction with other educational programs.

"These schools promote a connection to the community and often have business partnerships to offer a lot of applied learning," Luchs said. "It used to be either an academic track or a career track, and now the two are mixing."

Honoring e3 Parents... Giving-of-Thanks

We honored our parents with a FREE, catered Thanksgiving luncheon as we celebrated their unwavering support! The team served a delicious meal with baked turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, salad, and apple pie. All guests enjoyed the beautiful view from the Library's 9th floor Shiley Special Events Suite and holiday harmonies of the Advanced Choir under the direction of Ms. Wallace. We had gifts for the families in attendance and it was a beautiful demonstration of thanks!
