Partners in Education
Partners in Education are community businesses and groups who support the school in order to help us provide a better education for all our students. Our Partners here at Wangenheim are the Yogurt World, Vulcan Materials Company, Barnes & Noble Mira Mesa, Souplantation Mira Mesa, and the United States Marine Corps.
One of our Partners is Vulcan Materials Company
, located on Black Mountain Road just one block south of Wangehheim. Last year, Vulcan Material Company donated $800 so that we could purchase graphing calculators for our 8th grade algebra students. Vulcan has also been very generous in sponsoring field trips to their plant. They always treat us to a delicious breakfast buffet and call in the experts to explain the workings of the company. The students enjoy the driving tour of the plant. (You can see the entire operation as you drive south from Gold Coast on Camino Ruiz.)
