Sandburg is fortunate to have the MALS-11 Marine Unit from the United States Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Whoo’s Smart Educational Supplies, and Callahan's Restaurant as their Partners in Education.
The MALS-11 Marines focus on individual student success by tutoring and mentoring to support student achievement and social adjustment. This meaningful and loyal service to Sandburg students is provided on Friday of each school week.
Our partners assist in special programs, field trips, and assemblies. Students enjoy making birthday and get well cards, posters, and projects for Whoo's Smart and the Marines of MALS-11.
Parents and community members are often invited by teachers to speak to students in the classroom or at an assembly. These speakers are a valuable resource, as they bring the opportunity for students to listen to an in-depth presentation about a particular topic they have been studying. Community speakers bring a wide variety of knowledge and experiences to the school setting. Additional community support has been in the form of donations from parents in the community. Hungry Howie's has donated pizzas to reward students for special accomplishments. Boomers, Godfather’s Pizza, 7-Eleven, Rubio's, Mimi's Cafe, Pat and Oscar's, Subway, Applebee's, Wendy’s and In-N-Out Burger, have given students awards and incentives. Harmonium Counseling Center works with the school to plan and organize meetings for parents who have children with attention difficulties.
