Cheers for Children

Dear Families,


It is time once again to lend your support to the 67th Cheers for Children campaign. The Cheers for Children annual food drive is a Ventura Unified School District effort to provide food baskets for families in need during the holidays. We are excited to partner with Balboa Middle School to bring you the annual Cheers for Children food drive that provides holiday meals for families in need throughout our community. This year, under the leadership of Principal Carlos Covarrubias, ASB Leadership, Jose Duenas students from Balboa Middle School will have a stronger role in leadership to organize and facilitate this extraordinary effort. We could not be more proud of the student volunteers who represent the future of our community.



School: El Camino High School

Food Item: Canned Meats

Food Drive Dates are Nov 22 - Dec 19, 2019


Please join us at the Balboa Middle School Cafeteria for the sorting, boxing and delivering of food baskets this year!


Friday, December 20 - 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. – sorting and boxing

Saturday, December 21 - 8:00 a.m. – deliver food baskets


An adult at these events must accompany all children. If you would like to help, there is no need to call. We look forward to seeing you and your family at Balboa. All VUSD students who help will earn certificates of community service hours.


Thank you in advance for helping to make this season a happy one for those less fortunate!

Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

Dr. Roger Rice, Superintendent

Transportation Option

Transportation is now offered to El Camino High School for students.


ECHS students will be invited to ride the Foothill shuttle bus. Each morning a bus departs from Buena at 7:35 and from Ventura at 7:29 and drops at Foothill Technology High School, where ECHS students can walk across the street to the El Camino campus.


In the afternoon, ECHS students can catch the shuttle at Foothill and they will be transported back to Buena or Ventura. The bus headed to Ventura leaves Foothill at 3:30 and the bus for Buena leaves at 3:10.


A big thank you to the VUSD transportation department and Foothill High School for making this transportation option available to our ECHS students.
