Rancho Santa Fe students add sparkle to Camp Pendleton Holiday Party


Just as the holiday season was kicking into full gear, all four 4th grade classes at R. Roger Rowe School — along with their teachers and some parent volunteers — took time from their busy schedules to hand-cut hundreds of sparkly red and silver snowflakes. The snowflakes were used to decorate 50 white tablecloths which were in turn used to adorn dinner tables for the Camp Pendleton Exceptional Family Member Program’s (EFMP) annual holiday party on Dec. 21.

This was one of many service activities sponsored by the school’s Kind to the Core service learning program in December. Each grade from K-5 has a “service theme.” Fourth graders focus their attention on supporting the military. Winona Britt, EFMP training, education & outreach specialist, was thrilled to receive the tablecloths. “The tablecloths were absolutely gorgeous and matched everything


! They made our décor!”
