Shell Beach has a strong tradition of giving back to our community. This year the Student Council partnered with a children's cancer hospital in San Diego to provide almost 100 pairs of pajamas to children suffering from cancer.
In addition, Mrs Vanderlei's class hosted a bake sale complete with lemonade. The stand raised just over $700 to donate to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
We came together as a school community and partnered with Cub Scout Pack 425, Santa Barbara Fire, Cal Fire, and the Atascadero Kiwanis to support the Helming family. Your generous contributions coupled with those in the community allowed us to give the family nearly $14,000 to support the needs of the family.
These words from Ralph Waldo Emerson may never be truer than they are today, "You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late."
