2,452 children are ready for school with their new backpacks

Pack-A-Back distribution day was a great success and now all the children are ready for school this week.  Dr. Xavier De La Torre, the new County Superintendent of Schools, was on-hand to help give out backpacks and also reinforce the message that the community must work together to ensure our children graduate high school and succeed in college. And, to the delight of the children, we had surprise visits by Sharkie, the SJ Sharks mascot, and Q, the SJ Earthquakes mascot.
