Mary Fay earns Golden Bell award

CAMP PENDLETON — Mary Fay Pendleton School, one of the schools in the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District, has been awarded the highly respected Golden Bell Award. This award is presented by the California School Boards Association.

The Golden Bell Awards program promotes excellence in education by recognizing outstanding programs in school district and county offices of education throughout California. The awards reflect the depth and breadth of the education program necessary to address students’ changing needs.

The goal of the program is to contribute to the development and evaluation of curriculum, instruction and support services.

Mary Fay Pendleton’s program is called “All Aboard.” Because the school is located on Camp Pendleton, it reflects the life of hundreds of military families. The school recognizes that families constantly come and go due to numerous deployments.

The goal of “All Aboard” is to support families and provide activities that will connect them to the school. Family members know that the school is truly a neighborhood school where parents, students and siblings are welcome.

A few of the outstanding activities at Mary Fay Pendleton include the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances, the kindergarten Patriotic Assembly, Kite Day, barbecues in conjunction with community organizations and the Freedom Walk on September 11.

Those associated with Mary Fay Pendleton School are to be congratulated for receiving this well-deserved recognition.

The official “Golden Bell” will be awarded to the school on December 6 and will be on display in the office after that date.
