Milpitas Unified School District’s Strategic Goal #1 is to “Build a Culture of We that engages parents, staff, and community partners in supporting student success.”
At the February 11, 2020 meeting, this strategic goal was exemplified by the generosity of many, as MUSD and the Board accepted generous donations from the Milpitas Knights of Columbus, Assemblymember Kansen Chu, and two Milpitas High School alumni Ivy and Alan Pham.
Grand Knight and Chairman of People With Intellectual Disabilities Program, St. Elizabeth Council 8747, presented the Board with a $6,509.43 check to support MUSD’s Special Education Program. Alisantosa, who accepted a Certificate of Recognition on behalf of the Knights of Columbus, also took a moment to present Ocean’s Supermarket with a resolution/recognition for their continued support for those with disabilities.
“This is a great partnership between Milpitas Unified School District and Knights of Columbus,” Alisantosa said. “We are very grateful of the strong support from our church community, school district, officers and members of Council 8747, friends and families, Ocean Supermarket, volunteers and donors.”
In addition, the Board honored Assemblymember Kansen Chu, as well as MHS alumni Ivy and Alan Pham, with Certificates of Recognition for their donations to the S.A.D. (Smoking, Drugs, Alcohol) signs project championed by the Phams.
The program seeks to educate Milpitas students about the health risks of smoking and using alcohol and drugs.
Assemblymember Chu, who was a special guest at the District’s Milpitas “On the Table” Conversation Part 2 on January 27, was also presented with a signed copy of Board Resolution 2020.7 Nominating Assemblymember Kansen Chu for the Californai School Boards Association Outstanding Legislator Award.
