For a second year, a group of Sessions’ families are hosting one of the hottest spots on Halloween night. Rob Christ always thought his (accidentally) black painted house looked a little creepy and decided to take advantage. “We got together with a bunch of our family and friends, including many kids that attend Kate Sessions Elementary School, and decided to build a haunted maze for the kids and adults in the neighborhood. Our kids all love the idea and have been very helpful in building scenes and crafts to go in the maze," Christ said. The Diamond Haunted house is located at 2176 Diamond St. and will run from 6-10 p.m. on Halloween. This all-ages haunted house is free, but donations will be accepted and given to Sessions Elementary.

Social isolation is the overwhelming feeling of being left out, lonely or treated like you are invisible. Young people who feel this way may pull away from society, struggle with learning and social development, or choose to hurt themselves or others. PBMS engaged in The Start with Hello Program enabling students to make a difference with their peers in a simple, fun, and impactful way by encouraging them to take small but powerful actions to promote connectedness and inclusion and to identify and help others who are showing signs of social isolation. PBMS spent a week in October bringing attention to the growing epidemic of social isolation and empowering students to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness.

Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School was proudly represented at the San Diego International Dragon Boat Race at Mission Bay. Despite having only one hour of practice the evening before the official race, the Paddling Pandas came within one second of medaling in their first-ever competition. In the traditional art and sport of dragon boat racing, competitors test their strength and endurance as they row dragon-shaped vessels in teams. Barnard’s team of 16 rowers formed very quickly after a parent suggested it as a community-building activity. Many Barnard families came out to the event for a day of fun and to cheer on the Paddling Pandas. “The dragon boat race was a great experience for parents, teachers, and myself to bond and build a strong sense of togetherness and community,” said Barnard Principal Hernandez. “I look forward to many more dragon boat races!” Buoyed by their successful first outing, the Paddling Pandas plan to compete – and win a medal – in the San Diego Dragon Boat Festival in May 2020.

Barnard’s fifth annual Writers Night will be held on Oct. 25, on the Mission Bay High School campus. This year’s theme is “Weaving Webs with Wicked Words.”
