    parents from Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph

    Hello, this is Mr. Wayne Joseph, Superintendent of Chino Valley Unified School District, extending a warm welcome as we prepare for the new school year.

    I’d like to remind you that our students will start school a week earlier than usual, on Monday, August 15.

    It is always exciting to start a new school year as students reconnect with friends and school staff members.

    But don’t forget: Parent support and involvement is the most important factor in student success. So, read to your children, work with them on their homework, and support their school-related activities.

    Again, welcome back and have a great school year.

    Thank you.

    An Odyssey of the Mind team from Rhodes Elementary School in Chino was hoping to get in the top 10 at the creative challenge competition’s 2016 World Finals held May 25 to 28 at Iowa State University. Instead, they made it into the top 5 in their division for the problem they tackled: building, riding on, and driving a no-cycle, recycling vehicle.

    There were 44 teams competing on the problem in their division.

    The elated team members, all fifth graders at Rhodes, are Vikram Senthilkumar, Vishnu Sriram, William Sahagun, Sohan Bondada, Jerry Brown, Jayden Churchill, and Analiese Miller. Team coaches are parents David Miller and Gem Sahagun, who help the students with a long term challenge that is part of the competition, and parent Stayci Churchill, who assists the students on a spontaneous challenge. Churchill, the mother of team member Jayden, is a teacher at E.J. Marshall Elementary School in Chino.

    The team earned a spot at the World Finals by placing first in their division at the California State Odyssey of the Mind Tournament, held April 2 at the University of California, Riverside.

    More than 800 teams from around the world competed in the 37th Odyssey of the Mind World Finals. The competition emphasizes creativity and teamwork and has grown into the largest international creative problem-solving competition worldwide, according to the Odyssey of the Mind website.

  • Statement on Former Chino Valley Unified Board of Education

    Member Lonnie Truett

    May 13, 2016

    Mr. Lonnie Truett began his service to Chino Valley Unified School District by serving on committees and being involved in the Ayala High School Booster Club. The Truett family dog, Buster, was Ayala’s bulldog mascot for several years.  Mr. Truett’s presence on the sidelines of Ayala football games and the committee work gave him exposure to people who urged him to run for a seat on the Board of Education. He stood for election in 1999, won a seat and continued to serve through 2004.  He served as clerk in 2000 and 2001, president in 2002, board member in 2003 and vice president in 2004.  His service came at a time when enrollment was growing and a successful bond measure provided for five new schools to be built which complemented his background in construction. 

    Mr. Truett always made sure that children were first when dealing with tough issues before the Board. Throughout his years of service, Mr. Truett was dedicated to the betterment of Chino Valley Unified.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.

    Mr. Truett passed away May 12.

    A memorial service will be held 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 11 at the McCoy Equestrian Center, 14280 Peyton Drive, Chino Hills.

    “The parents were very proud of their kids, and our students had a great time,” said Delia Lopez-Gutierrez, the Don Lugo High Assistant Principal who coordinated the event.

  • Photo of elementary students standing in a garden Eagle Canyon Elementary dedicates garden

    Earth Day 2016 on April 22 was a special day for Eagle Canyon Elementary School students and staff as they welcomed distinguished guests and community members to a celebration to dedicate their new garden.

    Each grade level participated by presenting the garden through songs and poetry. Earlier in the week, kindergarten through third grade students released earthworms, butterflies, ladybugs, and praying mantis in the garden.

    Students and guests were amazed by two magnificent murals created by Ayala High art teacher, Sergio Robleto. The garden project was the vision and hard work of Eagle Canyon parent, Rebecca Sabatino, who was awarded a grant from the Inland Empire Utilities Agency.

    The garden at Eagle Canyon will serve as a learning center for students to explore nature through a hands-on, learn-by-doing approach to education.

  • Richard Gird Educational Hall of Fame logo Who do you know who belongs in the

    Richard Gird Educational Hall of Fame?

    Do you have a favorite teacher from years gone by that deserves recognition? Or how about that staff member that helped you through the school day? Or maybe it is an organization that has gone above and beyond to help students in our District.

    Now is the time to nominate that outstanding person to the Richard Gird Educational Hall of Fame.

    The three categories for the Chino Valley Unified School District award are an alumni who has gone on to enrich the lives of others, a former employee who has made a lasting mark on students, and individuals or businesses who have provided distinguished service to the District or one of its schools. Alumni are eligible for nomination 10 years after graduating from a CVUSD school. A former employee becomes eligible for the nomination five years after retiring or departing from the District.

    Hall of Fame winners will be honored by the District in a special ceremony.

    The Hall of Fame is located in the main lobby of the District office in Chino. It features a large bust of Chino founder Richard Gird, murals depicting the School District's early history, and photos and short biographies of Hall of Fame inductees.

    Gird and his wife Nellie were the first recipients of the Hall of Fame, in 2014. The Girds were responsible for establishing the area’s first schools in the late 1880s, and both served on the Board of Trustees in the 1890s.

    Hall of Fame inductees in 2015 are Chino High girls basketball coach Joe Murillo, and former CVUSD Director of Health Services Jane Lyon (Employee inductees); Don Lugo High graduate, former professional baseball player, and coach Brent Billingsley (Alumni inductee); and the late Levi Dickey, who served as superintendent of the District in the 1950s and as an award winning basketball coach before that (Distinguished Service inductee).

    The community has through May 31, 2016 to nominate individuals or businesses for induction in the Richard Gird Educational Hall of Fame.

    Links to Hall of Fame nomination forms are available below. Forms must be returned by May 31, 2016 to Chino Valley Unified School District, Richard Gird Educational Hall of Fame Committee c/o Communications Office, 5130 Riverside Drive, Chino, CA. 91710; by email to Julie Gobin at Julie_gobin@chino.k12.ca.us; or by fax to (909) 548-6096.

  • Illustration of Helping Our People Everyday logo of holding hands encircled by heart Resource centers successful in aiding CVUSD families

    More than 700 families were provided help from July 2015 to January 2016 through the HOPE Family Resource Centers located at schools throughout the Chino Valley Unified School District, according to a report provided earlier this year.

    The five centers, which provide resources and referrals to Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) families in need, are located at the Chino Valley Adult School, Dickson and Walnut Avenue elementary schools in Chino; Alternative Education Center in Chino Hills, and Dickey Elementary School in Ontario.

    The HOPE Resource Centers are the vision of CVUSD Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph who wanted to help families in need in the school district after realizing that many academic problems stem from issues children have at home. In February 2014, he established a HOPE Committee of local community leaders to address those issues, and in November of that year, the school district opened the five centers with $250,000 it had set aside for the project.

    Recently the program was named a recipient of the Educational Excellence Award from the Association of California School Administrators, Region 12. The award will be presented April 18 in San Bernardino.

    For information about the Resource Centers, call (909) 628-1201, ext. 8960 or 8964.

  • Illustration saying Congratulations with stars and streamers around it Three CVUSD administrators and the

    HOPE Center program are award winners

    Three Chino Valley Unified School District administrators and the District’s HOPE centers program for families in need have been named recipients of awards from the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region 12.

    Yvette Farley, principal of Hidden Trails Elementary School in Chino Hills, has been named the Elementary Principal of the Year.

    Ryan Candelaria, assistant principal of Glenmeade Elementary School in Chino Hills, has been named Elementary Co-Administrator of the Year.

    Rod Federwisch, principal of Butterfield Ranch Elementary School in Chino Hills, is the recipient of the Wilson A. Grace Award for exemplifying the ideals and accomplishments of Wilson Grace in his efforts in professional leadership. Among the traits for the awards are tolerance, compassion, and the ability to inspire professional growth in others.

    Chino Valley Unified School District’s HOPE Centers program is the recipient of the Educational Excellence Award. The five centers, which provide resources and referrals to Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) families in need, are located at the Chino Valley Adult School, Dickson and Walnut Avenue elementary schools in Chino; Alternative Education Center in Chino Hills, and Dickey Elementary School in Ontario.

    The HOPE Resource Centers are the vision of CVUSD Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph who wanted to help families in need in the school district after realizing that many academic problems stem from issues children have at home. In February 2014, he established a HOPE Committee of local community leaders to address those issues, and in November of that year, the school district opened the five centers with $250,000 it had set aside for the project.
    The ACSA award recipients will be honored and receive their awards at the ACSA Spring Celebration/Administrator of the Year Awards Dinner on April 18 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in San Bernardino.

  • Elementary students with more than one hundred duffle bags in front of them Eagle Canyon provides a helping hand to foster youth

    Eagle Canyon Elementary School collected more than $3,125 recently to purchase, decorate and fill more than 120 duffle bags for foster youth.

    The students, along with other No Excuses University (NEU) schools across the nation, took on the duffle bag drive after learning that foster youth usually carry their belongings from one foster home to another in small plastic storage bags.

    Eagle Canyon was the top grossing school in the NEU fundraising drive. The students, staff, and parents collected the money for three consecutive weeks, promoting the effort in class competitions, assemblies, and through individual encouragement.

    The duffle bags, known as “sweet cases” were stuffed by students during a morning rally.

    Eagle Canyon works with other NEU schools across the nation on a charity each year.

    A NEU school promotes the concept that all students will attend college.

  • Three adults, two holding framed sports jerseys Don Lugo alumni honored with framed jerseys

    Don Lugo High honored two of their most famous alumni this morning at a rally on the Chino campus.

    Three-time Olympic Gold Medalist Leah O’Brien-Amico (Class of 1992) and former professional baseball player Chad Cordero (Class of 2000) accepted their framed sports jerseys during the rally. The jerseys will hang in the school’s front lobby at 13400 Pipeline Avenue.

    O’Brien-Amico won Olympic Gold Medals in softball in 1996, 2000, and 2004. She is a two-time World Champion softball player (1998 and 2002) and a three-time National Champion (1993, 1994, and 1997) while at the University of Arizona. She was named one of the California Interscholastic Federation Top 100 Athletes for 100 Years in 2013.

    Cordero was a first-round draft pick for the Montreal Expos and had his Major League Baseball debut in August 2003. He had 128 career saves and was named a 2005 National League All Star team member. He was named the National League Pitcher of the Month in June 2005, and led the league in saves that year. Following graduation from Don Lugo, he was a three-year starter for Cal State Fullerton, where he was named a two-time All American team member, and a three-time player for the Big West All-Conference Team.

  • Photof Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph A message from Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph

    End of the Calendar Year 2015

    As we come to the end of another year, we naturally find ourselves ruminating over the past twelve months. On a global level, the loss of life as a result of the shootings in San Bernardino has left many of

    us uncertain and afraid, surely wondering if there are liberties Americans are willing to sacrifice in the future to feel more safe and secure (knowing that absolute security is a mere figment of one’s imagination). On a District level, we have seen people voice their opinions on the issue of prayer at board meetings and the comments of one board member at the July board meeting. We have seen the democratic process unfold in front of us in which people are able to express themselves freely. But democracy has never been easy nor will it ever be in a country that has struggled with issues like slavery, voting rights for women and minorities, and immigration. The constant “push and pull” that comes with democracy is at times unsettling, but necessary, if the democratic process is to work.

    But we tend to take this freedom to voice our discontent for granted. As a diverse society though, disagreement is inevitable. Unfortunately, at times, we tend to celebrate more of how we are different than how we are alike. The commonality of the human condition----the fear of failure, the anxiety over death, the need to be loved, are qualities all humans share, and yet, much too often, we continue to separate ourselves by relishing in our differences.

    It is my hope that during this holiday season, we celebrate our similarities as human beings and take the time to appreciate and give thanks for the freedoms we all share.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!!

  • From the National Association of School Psychologists:

    Talking to Children About Violence:

    Tips for Parents and Teachers

    High profile acts of violence, particularly in schools, can confuse and frighten children who may feel in danger or worry that their friends or loved-ones are at risk. They will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react. Parents and school personnel can help children feel safe by establishing a sense of normalcy and security and talking with them about their fears.

  • Photo of Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph A message from Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph

    Nov. 16, 2015

    This fall has been an exciting and extraordinary one for me as Superintendent. I have spent the last couple of months visiting each of the District’s 35 schools and hosting small group meetings with principals, teachers, staff, and parents to better understand the unique needs at every school.

    In addition, I have launched a conversation with various community groups regarding the needs of Chino Valley schools.

    It is truly heartening to work with a school community which understands that if we want to maintain the high level of academic excellence and prowess for our students, we need to invest in our aging schools and technology, improve classrooms, and keep our children safe.

    I will be returning to schools in the spring, to host larger meetings with every school community and report back on what we’ve heard so far and get additional input as we plan for the future of our schools.

    If you have not had the chance to provide your feedback, there is still time! We want input from as many families as possible. Please spend a few minutes to take our feedback survey at www.chino.k12.ca.us/outreach. Thank you again for your willingness to be part of this thrilling process!

  • Three female high school students making pizzas while a male teacher oversees Chino High academies preparing

    students for the future

    Chino High School’s two career-related academies have been busy this school year.

    The academies – Law, Justice and Public Service Academy, and Culinary and Hospitality Occupations Management Pathway (C.H.O.M.P.) – allow interested students to use the state’s Common Core State Standards while getting college and career ready.

    Students in the academies have been exposed to various events, field trips, guest speakers and career experiences that focus on guiding them towards professions in those fields.

    Chino High’s C.H.O.M.P. academy is involved in ProStart, a program through the California Restaurant Association Education Foundation that provides industry-driven culinary arts and hospitality management career-exploration programs for high school students.

    Chino High also has a culinary facility where C.H.O.M.P. students can put their skills to work.

    On Oct. 27, C.H.O.M.P. Academy students attended a McDonald’s restaurant presentation in the Chino High Library, in which they participated in mock interviews, wrote mission statements, and created resumes.

    The students also visited O’Donovan’s Restaurant & Pub in Pomona where they worked side-by-side with the restaurant’s cooks and learned to make pizza.

  • Photo of eight Chinese teachers performing a cultural dance in the Ramona Junior High quad Chinese teachers get taste of American education

    Ramona Junior High in Chino hosted 11 Chinese teachers for a week this fall.

    “They are all just out of college and most will be teaching elementary, and a couple, the secondary level,” Ramona Principal Kathy Nash said.

    The new teachers, from Capital Normal University in Beijing, were assigned to observe classes for which they have been trained to teach. They were placed in art, English, English Language Development, math, history, and science. Many collaborated with Ramona’s teachers and co-taught lessons, Nash said. The Chinese teachers ate lunch with Ramona’s leadership students. At the end of the week, the visitors talked about their experience with Nash, and participated in Ramona’s Rockin’ Friday by performing some cultural dances.

    Nash provided the new teachers with certificates and Ramona spirit t-shirts. Nash also gave the teachers copies of Common Core state standards, disciplinary resources, and history standards.

  • Two junior high boys sitting at  a desk, building a robot with plastic pieces Ramona Junior High students creating robots

    Some Ramona Junior High seventh-graders are in week eight of a 12-week course that teaches students about robots in society and computer programming.

    The new elective class at the Chino campus uses a program offered by Lego, the plastic construction toy manufacturer. The class is part of Ramona’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) emphasis.

    Students build a robot using Lego’s instructions and program the robot with different functions, said Ramona science teacher Joe Gonzalez.

    The students also create a “battle” robot with modifications, as well as a robot of their own design.

    Aspects of computing, math, science, and design and technology are included in the course.

  • Generic photo of part of a high school track Recommendation made to name Chino High

    track after Ray ‘Grandpa’ Ortiz

    A 30-day comment period has begun that could result in the naming of the track at Chino High after the late Ray “Grandpa” Ortiz, a longtime Chino resident.

    The Citizen’s Advisory Committee on the Naming of Facilities has recommended naming the Chino High track after Ortiz, a local youth track and football coach who provided his expertise to thousands of Chino youth.

    The recommendation was presented to the Chino Valley Unified School District Board of Education as an information-only item at the Oct. 15 board meeting. Seven speakers, including Chino High Principal Felix Melendez and Chino High Athletic Director Michael Hinkle, spoke at the meeting in favor of naming the track after Ortiz, who organized the annual Chino Youth Track Meet that draws thousands of participants.

    Deadline to provide suggestions for the name of the track is Nov. 14, 2015. To access the name suggestion form, click here.

    The recommendation is expected to be brought to a board meeting for action after the 30-day comment period.

    School resource officers (SRO) from Chino Police Department and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department / Chino Hills Police Department work among our students daily and will be providing a close up on campus issues to parents at two forums this month.

    The forums are set for Tuesday, Oct. 13 in the Chino High multi-purpose room, and Thursday, Oct. 22 in the Chino Hills High theatre. Both are from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

    A light dinner of pizza, cookies, and water will be offered beginning at 6:00 p.m. Spanish translation will also be offered.

  • Illustration of teacher and students in classroom Combination classes reduced through collaboration

    The number of combination grade level classes has been dramatically decreased this year, it was announced at the Sept. 3 school board meeting.

    This school year, there are 18 combination classes districtwide, compared to 63 combination classes last year.

    Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph credited the change to the school board’s determination “that children would be first,” to the teamwork of teachers and district staff members, and to the superintendent’s cabinet members for “crunching the numbers” to make the reduction work.

    Two grade levels are combined when there are not enough students in a particular grade to justify hiring another teacher in that grade level.

    During the board meeting, Mary Hancock, speaking for her husband Todd Hancock, the president of the Associated Chino Teachers union, thanked district officials for cutting down combination classes. She said the association would continue to help the district in its efforts to reduce those classes.

    School board trustee Pamela Feix said teachers helped reduce the combination classes by accepting extra children in their classes.

    Board member Sylvia Orozco said it cost the district about $1 million to add extra teachers to help eliminate the need for numerous combination classes.

    Board members Andrew Cruz and James Na also recognized the district’s efforts to reduce the combination classes.

  • Photo of Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph A Message from Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph

    Undoubtedly, this has been the best start of any school year that I have encountered in my six years as Superintendent.  With the restoration of a little over a million dollars in classified hours and positions, the hiring of 121 new teachers since July 1, and the significant decrease in combination classes, morale is very high District-wide. In addition, the recent release of test scores once again shows that we are well above the State and County averages.

    In addition to our teachers and classified personnel, we could not have experienced the level of success we have had as a District without the support of our families and community members who value our schools. Active participation in school meetings, hours volunteering in classrooms and on field trips, and time spent at home helping with homework are all essential in helping to provide our students with the support and opportunities they need to succeed.  As the District plans for the future, the participation of our school communities couldn’t be more important. Understanding the priorities of each school community is essential in developing a shared vision for the future.

    I am in the midst of visiting every school to obtain feedback concerning the needs of our schools. Whether it is investing in new technology, upgrading school-career education programs, improving classrooms, or making basic health and safety improvements at our schools, I would like to hear from our families and community members to help shape the future of our schools. Please spend just a couple of minutes to take our feedback survey at www.chino.k12.ca.us/outreach.

    A heartfelt thank-you for such a wonderful kick-off to our school year and I am confident that the rest of the school year will be as positive and successful for our District and its children as the beginning of this year has been.

    traffic near Ayala High and Litel Elementary

    The Peyton Drive project bypass road will be in use during the morning commute and school traffic period on Thursday, Sept. 17.

    The decision to allow the closure was made to allow the contractor to complete the box culvert under Eucalyptus Avenue during one last major period. The City of Chino Hills believe this will reduce impacts in the future.

    Commuters and motorists whose destination is not on Peyton Drive are urged to avoid the area. This is the first time the bypass road will be in use during morning traffic with school in session.

    Motorists on Eucalyptus Avenue will be directed to the bypass and on to Peyton Drive from Wednesday, Sept. 16 at approximately 7:30 a.m. (after the Ayala High morning traffic has subsided) until approximately 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17.

    Motorists with smartphones are encouraged to take advantage of the OxBlue app to check real time road conditions on the two webcams that are operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    For those with access to computers, visit www.chinohills.org/PeytonConstruction and click on the webcam photo to view conditions.

    Motorists are also advised to slow down in the construction area for the safety of the workers.

    The Chino Valley Unified School District serves a vital role in our community by providing quality education to local students. Our award-winning schools significantly outperform the County and state averages, and our teachers continue to be recognized as educators of the year on both County and state levels.

    However, most of our local schools were literally built decades ago – with some built in the 1950s – and need basic health and safety improvements. We know that if we want to maintain a high-level of academic excellence for our students, we need to invest in our aging schools and technology, improve classrooms, and keep our children safe.

    As we plan for the future of our schools, we need your input! Join the Community Conversation and let us know your priorities for local schools.

    How Can You Help?

    Parents and families are essential partners in promoting good attendance because they have the bottom-line responsibility for making sure their children get to school every day. Just as parents should focus on how their children are performing academically, they have a responsibility to set expectations for good attendance and to monitor their children’s absences, so that missed days don’t add up to academic trouble.

    For ideas on improving your elementary child's attendance, check out this Parent Handout.

  • Head and shoulder photo of Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph A Message from Superintendent

    Wayne M. Joseph

    It is the beginning of another school year, and we are once again imbued with a spirit of excitement, anticipation, and a renewed sense of commitment. As a theme this year, I have asked the administrators in our District to devote this school year to the memory of the untimely deaths of a number of our students over the past few years, particularly those who have taken their own lives.

    It is my hope that through their deaths we can re-commit to becoming a nicer, kinder, gentler District, one in which kindness and compassion become the rule rather than the exception. But before we can expect our students to display such attributes, we adults must model that behavior for them. Are we routinely kind and compassionate with one another, or do we allow life’s daily travails to interfere with our ability to be better human beings? Do we seek out the good in each other or do we tend to emphasize instead those things we find lacking or disagreeable in the other person?

    We have many loving and kind employees in our District who share their warmth and benevolent spirit with fellow employees and students on a daily basis. I ask us to follow their example and become better than we are both as individuals and as a District. I am confident that all of those students who have lost their lives would be honored to know that they played a significant role in moving an entire District to become a better place in which to work and go to school. I hope you agree with me that it is a goal worth pursuing.

  • Wayne Joseph A Message from the Superintendent

    I have often been asked over the previous nineteen years as an employee of our District, why I have stayed in Chino rather than moving to another school district. My answer has always been that the Chino District is a special place due to the quality of its people. I am again reminded of this fact upon realizing that May 13th is the “Day of the Teacher” in our State, and May 17-23 is “Classified Employees Week.”

    One can never overemphasize the impact that teachers have on the students in our District. We naturally think of the academic influence our teachers have especially in light of the outstanding reputation our District has for scholastic prowess. However, equally important is the emotional effect our teachers have on our young people. The kind word, the engaging smile, and the encouraging hug are the typical behaviors of our teachers.

    Meanwhile, our classified staff are the unsung heroes and heroines in our District. Their work often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. The school secretary who greets every visitor with a warm welcome; the instructional aide who ensures that the teacher’s words are understood by the students; the cafeteria worker who makes sure that our students receive healthy, nutritious food are just a few examples of the impactful work that is performed by our classified employees.

    We are all guilty at times of taking for granted many of the favors that have been bestowed upon us. As Superintendent, I am once again reminded of our exemplary employees that expend all of their physical, mental, and emotional energies in an attempt to make CVUSD the wonderful place it continues to be.

    So when I am asked why I have remained in Chino the answer is always the same---it is our magnificent employees who continue to motivate me and make me realize how blessed I am to be in a district where the inspirational and the uplifting are on display each and every day.

    Wayne Joseph

  •  Illustration of a paint can and paint brush Spruce up Saturday at Cortez

    Cortez Elementary School in Chino will receive a day of service from local church members on Saturday, April 25.

    Up to 50 members of the San Antonio Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) on San Antonio Avenue in Chino plan to tackle the school’s quad area from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. They will paint 35 picnic tables, refresh a map of the United States, and plant flowers around the quad.

    Some Parent Faculty Association members from Cortez are also expected to help, according to school officials. In past LDS day of service events, members of other religious organizations have assisted in completing projects, said Ken Rasmussen, director of public affairs for the Chino, California Stake of the LDS, headquartered in Chino Hills.

    Other day of service events are planned in the Chino Valley area on Saturday, including work on the community garden in Chino, and assistance to local shut-ins, Mr. Rasmussen said.

    In a past day of service, LDS members laid mulch throughout the entire campus at Ayala High.
