Bird Rock to celebrate ‘Distinguished’ status

Bird Rock Elementary School will celebrate its designation as a State of California “Distinguished School” today during an open house at the school at 5371 La Jolla Hermosa Ave. starting at 5:30 p.m.

It is the school’s way of thanking and honoring neighborhood residents and local merchants for contributing to the school through fundraisers such as Taste of Bird Rock and other activities that have aided the school in building its solid academic reputation.

Festivities will start out in the auditorium where guests will sit on new chairs provided by proceeds from the Bird Rock Community Council (BRCC) home tour.

Afterward, all classrooms, including the Science Lab, Art Room, Library and Computer Lab, will be open for touring.

Other events will include an art walk and celebratory popsicles in the lunch arbor.
