Paul Ruez, Digital Studio teacher to help pay for supplies for students who will be participating in the San Diego County Fair

Chandra Faist, Academy of Justice program to help with the cost of field trips to the Oceanside Police Department, San Diego Superior Court and Donovan Prison
Linda Headrick, OHS Robotics Club, to help purchase supplies for their after school mentoring program
From Paul Ruez, Digital Studio teacher, “Now some of my concerns about how to pay for the students’ supplies needed to exhibit their work at this year’s San Diego County Fair’s Student Show Case have been removed. The support demonstrated via this grant from Wal-Mart and the Oceanside High School Foundation is both welcome and very much appreciated by my students and me. Thank you for joining with me in helping to make it possible for Oceanside High School Career Technical Education students in the Digital Studio to showcase their creative talents to over 230,000 fair goers who visit the Student Showcase during the fair. This shines a most positive spotlight on these students, Oceanside High School, the Oceanside Unified School District and the City of Oceanside… and Wal-Mart and the Oceanside High School Foundation are playing a major role in making it possible this year!
Angela Ober writes for her Severely Handicapped/Medically Fragile class, “We are enjoying the four tablets we were able to order with the faculty grant. It is so nice that we have four tablets to go around with the students instead of them having to wait for their turn. Thank you again for the donation for our special education students.”
Robotics Club adviser, Linda Headrick writes, “With your classroom grant we hope to continue to expand the after school internship opportunity to our Oceanside High School students who have talents for teaching programming. Thank you.”
