FountainMediaGroup inc. publications that build community
Our mission for The Fountain is to connect San Elijo Hills residents to each other and to key resources with the goal of building community in San Elijo Hills and the greater San Marcos area. We moved to San Elijo Hills in 2001 as part of the first four families to move into the Cedar Crossing development. The Fountain is a great example of what can happen when neighbors build strong relationships and get busy putting their ideas and skills together for the good of the community. We hope you find this community publication reflective of our excitement to be in San Elijo Hills and our desire to build something that brings us all closer together. We invite you to join in the fun and get involved. Copyright 2010. All rights reserved. Reproduction in any form, in whole or part, without written permission is prohibited.

Thank You, Neighbors! I’d just like to take a moment on behalf of Tim and I to say THANK YOU to you – our readers. The Fountain simply could not exist without you. I continue to be overwhelmed each month by the response we get from you. It’s not just that you take the time to read each issue, but that you step up and get involved. You take action on what you read and for that I am both amazed and grateful. This issue marks the end of our seventh year of publishing The Fountain. For those of you who don’t know the story, Tim and I started this publication in 2003. We are next door neighbors here in San Elijo Hills and we shared a vision of creating something that would bring our community together each month and help build a stronger sense of community. Since that time, many others have jumped in to contribute and share their expertise throughout the years. We’ve watched service organizations and businesses start and grow. We’ve had the opportunity to get to know some amazing people who live within our neighborhood and I truly believe this publication has made a significant contribution to building a stronger sense of community here in San Elijo Hills.
We would love to see more residents get involved with The Fountain by sharing your accomplishments, your stories, your expertise and knowledge. If you’re new to the community, you may not realize that The
adopt a family Program Join us this month as we come together as a community to make Christmas a magical time for local families in need. There is no better time to show your gratitude and make an impact. Family names will be given out later this month, so now is the time to sign up to participate. You will be given information about the family and what they would most benefit from receiving. You can participate on any level. Perhaps you don’t have time to shop for a family, but would like to donate money and let someone else do the shopping. Or perhaps you’re just the opposite – you have the time and willingness to shop, but don’t have the cash. That’s the whole point of all of us coming together for this program. Just let us know how you want to participate. Every resource will be used – whether time, money, or otherwise. You can sign up as an individual or get your block together, your bunco group, your sports team, or scout group. It doesn’t matter HOW you participate, just participate in some way or another. It will make you feel so good! To sign up and get further information, please contact San Elijo Hills resident, Kim Rademacher, at kimrademacher@ me.com. Let’s see how many families we can adopt and let’s spread the joy of giving this holiday!

Student Making Strides – A Special Thank you!
The Skeleton in Black Canyon
Hi! My name is Alexis Wellong. I am 12 years old, a 7th grader at San Elijo Middle School, a pacesetter and Team Leader for TABC Tween Awareness for Breast Cancer.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a non-profit organization who brings awareness to the ongoing epidemic of Breast Cancer. I am proud to be part of this organization for the past four years! Cancer touches everyone’s life in some form. It doesn’t have to be Breast Cancer, cancer is cancer and if we bring awareness to one there is a better chance of finding a way to cure them all!
At 12 years old, I have experienced first hand watching a loved-one battle cancer. My Uncle Sean battled a form of Lymphoma. I accompanied him to chemotherapy to support him through the difficult times. I loved spending time with him, I made him smile and he made me laugh. He taught me how to ski, he took me to concerts, bike riding, and just enjoyed spending time with me. In June 2009, he lost his battle to cancer at the age of 38 and I had to say goodbye. My Uncle Sean was the primary reason I am involved with Making Strides at such a young age.
Me and my Uncle Sean
When I was 8 years old, I wanted to make a difference in this world and I discovered the Making Strides Hope starts with me! family. Besides my family and friends; Jennifer Berg, Director of Making Strides and Stacey Matseas, National Fundraiser, have been my biggest supporters (and I know Sean is, too). Becoming involved has taught me how to be more confident, take control of my future, have a voice and be aware. No one is immune; tweens, adults, men and women are all at risk. This year my teammates Caitlin Bowen and Alex Sasich and I are bringing awareness so that we can have a world with more Birthdays. Will you join us in our efforts? I can stand alone and be heard by some, but if we all stand together we will be heard by many!! I want to thank Albertsons for allowing our team to fundraise on September 19. At this fundraiser we celebrated birthdays and raffled a custom, two-tiered birthday cake - CONGRATULATIONS to Chase Herro! Thank you for your support and the generosity of all residents who donated! I also want to thank Chili’s Encinitas for donating a portion of their proceeds from our fundraiser held October 3. Please take a moment to look at our team website, our mission is to raise $4,000. As a team, we successfully completed our 4 mile walk on October 17 through beautiful Balboa Park. Hope starts here...with us! http://main.acsevents.org/goto/TABC
6th Annual San Elijo Holiday Boutique The City of San Marcos and the San Elijo Hills Women’s Club present the 6th Annual San Elijo Holiday Boutique on Saturday, November 6 from 10 am – 4 pm. The event will be held at the San Elijo Rec Center at 1105 Elfin Forest Rd. You’ll enjoy arts & crafts vendors, entertainment, food and much more. Bring the kids to participate in the free children’s craft area.
John Nabors, a resident here in San Elijo Hills, is the author of The SkeIeton in Black Canyon, a youth adventure story for kids in grades 3 – 6. Many of the ideas for the story came from his six year participation in the Adventure Guide program which many fellow San Elijo Hills residents participate in with their fathers/sons.
The Skeleton in Black Canyon was written in 2010 to be read by John’s fourth grade grandson at night. The chapters rolled from the printer and took on a life of their own. The story features an 11-year old boy and his grandfather during two camping trips near Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in southern California. The first part involves a two-night trip on a four-wheeler ATV into a valley that is surrounded by mountains. In the cave, they find a skeleton of a man and the mystery begins. The reading level is the fourth through sixth grade, but younger children would enjoy the story being read to them. The book was published in the summer of 2010 by createspace.com and is available from Amazon.com by the title. Look under the book section for The Skeleton in Black Canyon. John Nabors has lived in San Elijo Hills for over six years with his wife Winnie. They have a daughter and grandson who live here in San Elijo Hills with them. When he is not writing, John is the Business Manager for a nursing home in Texas where he travels each month. John is already preparing to publish his next youth adventure book this month. If you’re looking for a unique holiday gift or story to read to your children, pick up a copy of The Skeleton in Black Canyon.

on your doorstep Calistoga Block Party a Success! It was great to see everyone at the 6th Annual Calistoga Block Party on Saturday, October 2 in the cul-de-sac of Kenwood. It was a great time, and we hope that everyone had a chance to meet some new faces and catch up with old friends!
The Potluck Dish Contest was more competitive this year, which meant that all the neighbors enjoyed some really delicious food! 1st place went to Melissa Merklinger of Kenwood who was a newcomer to the competition, and won with her famous “Cowboy Cookies”. 2nd Place went to Andre Allen of Kenwood, with the “Rib Cage.” Andre was a former 1st place winner in 2006, 2008 and 2009 and we look forward to his entry every year. 3rd place was Brian Pham of Glen Ellen Place, newcomer this year, with his yummy egg rolls. The kids also enjoyed playing in the inflatable jumpy and slide, and neighbors were able to catch up after the busy summer. With over 70 people from the neighborhood, we were excited to have our second annual bike parade where the kids showed off their bike riding skills and bikes. We were also happy to see some former Calistoga neighbors that came by! The evening was made complete with the movie, Jack and the Beanstalk, which entertained the children, after an afternoon of jumping in the bouncy and riding bikes.
The competitive spirit showed up again this year as neighbors competed in the Annual Ping Pong Tournament. The finalists were Jeff Woods, Ken Martin, and Dusty Brazil. Sometime soon, they will have to have to play each other, so we can crown a winner! The jelly bean contest was won by Dusty Brazil (It was his second time!) and he was able to take home all 1,405 jelly beans! His kids are lucky!
Special thanks for all the monetary donations from the neighbors for making this happen, the use of everyone’s tables and canopies, electricity, those that helped with set up and clean up and especially to the Block Party Planners, Jenn and Ken Martin & Jackie and Erik Boysen. What a great neighborhood tradition!

The playroom is also a great place for people traveling within San Diego to bring their child to play while the rest of the family enjoys a destination that they couldnâ€™t typically visit with their autistic child.
Autistically Inclined also provides in-home services and consultations. Julie has been in the autism field for 12 years. She is very passionate about what she does and in creating a business that centers on giving. Austistically Inclined is creating partnerships with local businesses that provide much needed breaks and pampering for the caregivers and the other family members. One simple example of this in the neighborhood is that you can bring your child to Autistically Inclined for their session and then enjoy a complimentary sitting fee at A Colorful Universe, so you can
enjoy some one-on-one time with your other child. Julie also provides a 50% discount off of their services to anyone who will pay one of their own services forward (for free) to someone who inspires them. If you have a service that you feel would benefit a family and are interested in becoming a wellness partner of Autistically Inclined or in acting as a sponsor by donating to support a family in need of services, please contact Julie. She can be reached at (760) 918-0616. To learn more about Autistically Inclined, please visit her website at www.autisticallyinclined.com.

Walk To School Day
by Chris Fitzsimmons Is it that time of year already? Thanksgiving is here! It is extremely important for us as an organization to reflect and be thankful for everyone and everything we have accomplished this year. A lot of hard work has gone into our first year of programs for both The Academy and San Elijo FC. While this year is already winding down, we have been busy planning for next year. But before we can do that, we would be remiss if we did not recognize, and be thankful for all the individuals, families, and organizations that have supported us, continue to support us, and helped get us to this point! So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, our organization is very thankful and would like to take this time to say THANK YOU:
San Elijo Hills Foundation, The Fountain, San Elijo Life, San Elijo Elementary School, San Elijo Middle School, San Marcos Unified School District, The City of San Marcos, Gaspar Physical Therapy, Extraordinary Conceptions, Barbeques Galore, 7-Eleven, Albertson’s, Hendo’s Local, Peppertree Hills Cafe, The Engraver’s Gallery, San Elijo Dental, and most importantly all our members, staff, and volunteers! We could not have done it without you! Please check www.theacademyatsanelijo.com for all details and information regarding the following upcoming winter academy programs and events slated for early 2011: Winter Break Camps, Winter Futsal (Indoor Soccer), Basketball Clinics, Winter Soccer Clinics, Flag Football, San Elijo FC Competitive Soccer Tryouts, After School Programming, and San Elijo Hills 5th Annual 5K Run and Community Event!

on your doorstep Thank You Albertsons – The Buck Starts Here Albertsons is a brand you see throughout San Elijo Hills. Whether supporting Walk to School Day or providing space for charitable programs, Albertsons does a lot to contribute to our community.
Mario Caballero, San Elijo Hills resident and member of the San Elijo Elementary School PTO Board, has the opportunity to see how Albertsons contributes to our schools. He wanted to help make the community aware of some of the generous programs that Albertsons delivers on a larger scale. “When we support Albertsons, we support not only these programs, but we also support our own local community by ensuring that the business thrives and continues to have the capacity to give back both locally and on a larger level,” Mario expressed. Albertsons “Fresh Rescue,” first announced in September, is a corporate program that collects and distributes nutritious perishable foods to America’s Second Harvest affiliates. “Dairy, meat, produce and limited-shelf-life products are an important part of a healthy diet,” said Larry Johnston, Albertsons chairman, chief executive officer and president. “We provide them to food banks that can accommodate them.” But first, the company is helping to upgrade local agencies’ infrastructures to make sure their refrigerated trucks and temperature-controlled facilities
can safely handle the donations. That process was started last year with a $200,000 contribution from Albertsons and General Mills. Albertsons later contributed an additional $100,000, for a total of $300,000.
In our community, Albertsons does Fresh Rescue contributions to St Vincent’s de Paul’s in Escondido an organization that provides emergency housing, food distribution and a Thrift Store. Also last year, our local Albertsons sold Turkey Bucks for Thanksgiving which helped families that had registered with St. Vincent’s. This year, the Turkey Bucks that we all purchase for a dollar while shopping at Albertsons will go to provide for Military Families. As you shop this month, grab a few Turkey Bucks. It’s a simple way to show your gratitude and to give back to others.
In addition, don’t forget that spending your money here in the neighborhood has a direct impact on our community and our quality of life. A great way to express your thankfulness this fall is by enjoying our community, shopping in the Town Center, and supporting the local businesses that continue to invest in our community. The buck starts here! Make every buck count!

on your doorstep 5th Annual San Elijo Hills 5K
The Academy at San Elijo is proud to bring you the 5th Annual San Elijo Hills 5K “Toughest 5K in North County” on Saturday, January 8, 2011. Get off the couch with a healthy start to the New Year! This run has become a community tradition here in San Elijo thanks to the dedication of a variety of residents. It was San Elijo Hills resident Rich Farmer who started this run nearly five years ago. While The Academy will step up this year to organize and benefit from the event, Rich will remain involved as a consultant assisting with all organization and planning efforts. “It is my pleasure to remain involved with this event and I am really looking forward to working with The Academy and taking this to the next level,” said Rich. “I think what Rich has done over the last four years with this run has been great for our community and we want to see it continue. The San Elijo Hills 5K run and event is a great fit for our organization,” said Chris Fitzsimmons, Founder and Director of The Academy.
The 5th Annual San Elijo Hills 5K will see some changes in January. There will be a new and maybe even more challenging course that will get participants seeing more of what makes San Elijo Hills so great! After the run is over, there will be a family event featuring many local vendors, food, beverages, and plenty of fun things for the kids to do, including a 100-yard Kids Dash. Complete information and details will be available soon on The Academy website at www.theacademyatsanelijo.com, including online registration for the race itself. The family event afterwards will be open to race participants and to San Elijo Hills residents. 100% of the net proceeds from the race and event will benefit The Academy at San Elijo and both San Elijo schools. In addition, a free 9-week training program is being organized to help residents get ready for the race. See sidebar for details. Don’t miss this
Save the Date! - January 8 opportunity to get involved in a fun community event that promotes health, active living, and bringing the community together to support kids. Save the date and start training now!
Couch to 5K Challenge It’s here! The time of year when we smile a little wider, give a little more, and our waistlines bulge… just a little. During the holidays, it is easy for us to become consumed by hectic schedules. Wouldn’t it be great to do something fun and healthy for ourselves? There is a way! San Elijo Hills is organizing our first Couch to 5K Challenge: A 9-week training program introduced by Cool Running (www.coolrunning.com). Training will begin October 26 and prepare you to cross the finish line of the San Elijo Hills 5K on January 8. This consists of 3 workouts per week that last for 20 to 30 minutes, offering a smooth progression into running. Rest assured, you’re not on your own! In addition to a stepby-step training system, you will have the support of your team members in person and online. We also provide you with stretching exercises and great tips on staying injury free. There may be a goody or two along the way as well… Whether you are physically active or haven’t walked more than a mile in twenty years, this program will build your endurance and your confidence. Everyone is welcome to participate in the free program and is encouraged to commit to running the 5K. Go ahead, prove to yourself that you can do it! Proceeds from the 5th Annual San Elijo Hills 5K race will benefit The Academy and San Elijo Schools. Stop by or call the Visitor’s Center (760-798-1765) at 1215 San Elijo Road for more information about the Couch to 5K Challenge. You can also email us at email@example.com. Come on! Get started right now by registering for the San Elijo Hills 5K at www.theacademyatsanelijo.com.
A High Quality of Life in San Marcos San Marcos is on the right track. Despite a historic recession, we’ve added new parks, improved our traffic conditions, maintained a high level of public safety and taken several significant steps toward defining a future for our city. Most important, we’ve done these things while keeping San Marcos on solid financial footing during one of the most challenging economic environments in generations. These results are the product of a well-run city that not only operates efficiently, but also provides its residents a very high quality of life. Chris Orlando: City Council
In the last several years San Marcos has opened nearly 300 acres of new parks, including Hollandia Park, Double Peak Park, and the awardingwinning Sunset Park. In September renovations on the Civic Center Park were completed and just last month the ribbon was cut on a major improvement to Mission Sports Park, making it one of the premier youth sports venues in the county. These amenities contribute to a high quality of life in San Marcos.
But it’s not just parks that add to our quality of life. Over the last several years the City has made major strides towards improving traffic conditions. A new, state-of-the-art Traffic Management Center was added that synchronizes traffic lights on major roads, allowing traffic to flow more freely. Several key roads and intersections have also been widened or improved to ease congestion in impacted areas. And, perhaps the most significant step toward solving our traffic concerns -- easing congestion on SR78 -- has been furthered. The City has taken the lead on a project to add an auxiliary lane to SR78, which will greatly improve conditions at what has been called
w w w.th efo u n ta i n- o n li ne .co m
the worst point of gridlock in the county. This improvement, which is slated to be funded with the passage of a state budget, will provide significant traffic relief and help alleviate congestion that clogs our City streets.
At the same time public safety has remained a top priority. Crime has dropped more than 10 percent in San Marcos since 2007 and average response times for the fire department continue to be some of the fastest in the county. This summer, the City added a new high-tech emergency command vehicle. This vehicle, which was paid for largely by grant money and includes some of the most advanced technology available, will greatly improve the City’s ability to respond to emergencies. Those that evacuated San Elijo Hills during the 2007 wild fires know the importance of our ability to respond locally to emergencies.
San Marcos is not only improving quality of life today, but also planning for the future by updating the City’s General Plan and diligently implementing the awarding-winning San Marcos Creek District project, the University District project, and new redevelopment projects in the Richmar neighborhood. And by taking a conservative approach to the City budget and making early, decisive moves to trim the budget where possible, we guided San Marcos through a historic recession, balancing our budget and increasing our reserves while continuing to provide responsive, quality services. Maintaining a balanced budget and operating efficiently remain the most important factors in keeping our City strong. Collectively, this progress supports a very high quality of life in San Marcos. I hope residents feel as I do, that San Marcos is one of the best places to live, raise a family, go to school, or retire. The future of our City remains extremely bright.

me et the
people in your neighborhood Meet Adrian, Kate & Max on HBO and VH1 and heard his music on Noggin! You can learn more about his work at www.adrianhenke.com. Kate is a graphic designer. You’ve recently seen her work at the San Elijo Hills Oktoberfest event. Kate designed the event logo you saw on event promotion and t-shirts. Kate’s specialty, however, is custom wedding invitations, baby announcements and social stationery. She loves what she does and being part of the special events in people’s lives. You can learn more about her services at www.kateemmert.com. Adrian and Kate’s son Max is eleven months old. He loves monkeys and making mischief. Because his dad is a composer, Max was able to release his first album on itunes when he was only six months old. The album is called Sound Like Birds.
Adrian and Kate moved here to Westridge in San Elijo Hills about a year ago. After living and working in the television industry in New York City all of their adult lives, Adrian and Kate decided to make the move to San Diego. They knew it would be a great place to raise a family and San Elijo Hills has been a perfect place for them to settle.
Adrian, Kate and Max love the family-friendly atmosphere here in San Elijo Hills. The walkable community layout makes it fun and easy to run errands with Max. Next time you see them out and about, stop and say hello. Or, if you’re getting ready for a special event and could use some custom-designed invitations or announcements, give Kate a call.
Adrian is a composer, writer/producer and video editor for broadcast television, advertising and Web. You’ve probably seen some of his work
As a family, the Henkes enjoy exploring all of the fun activities in our area. They are always on the lookout for new things to do, but so far some of their favorite places are the San Diego Zoo and Leo Carrillo Park. Kate is also active in our community volunteering on the Special Events Committee. She has enjoyed being part of the events, getting to know people, and working with our Community Director, Kim Perez.

school news By Lynda McD o n e ll , Pr i n c i pal
SEES Standardized Test Scores are SOARing
San Elijo Elementary School continues to show improvement in results of the California Standards Test (CST) given each spring to students in grades 2-5. The CST tests five strands within language arts including vocabulary/word analysis, reading comprehension, literary response, written conventions, and writing strategies. It assesses five mathematics strands including two within the number sense and math operations, measurement/ geometry, algebra/functions, and statistics/data analysis. We are experiencing gains in each of these areas and across grade levels. Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) is a national measure concerned with annual progress of all subgroups within a school. Some are significant subgroups and some are not. SEES has two significant subgroups and both made the AYP goals exceeding the average growth required in the United States. API is a California measure concerned with the performance of all 2-5 students at a school measured against other schools. Both AYP and API concern themselves with the percentage of students who are proficient and above the benchmark score of 350. The AYP goals are raised each year to ensure schools across the nation are closing the achievement gap and demonstrating growth for all students. For example, the target percent proficient for Language Arts in 2009 was 56.8% and math 58.0%. It is slated for approx. 65% this year. At this point, SEES subgroups are currently far and above this bar. The benchmark of API scores is 800. SEES’ API score for the 2009/2010 school year is 942, a ten point gain. In the spring of 2009, 517
Language Arts Math 2nd
students took the test and in May 2010, 574 tested. Each year we test more students and our scores continue to rise! This year 56 students scored perfect scores on the math portion alone! The table below shows the two year growth in the percentage of students at each grade level that reached the state benchmark of proficiency or higher. Teachers at SEES are a professional learning community committed to shared responsibility of all students. Our staff development in instructional strategies, targeted, focused goals and SOAR groupings has resulted in the mean percent correct for the reading comprehension portion of the CST to rise each year. Timely interventions are implemented for students performing below grade level while enrichment opportunities are offered for higher achieving students. Hundreds of students moved up a proficiency band or two this year or increased their overall percent correct while remaining proficient or advanced. All of these statistics come into play in the API formula. We are proud of our entire learning community, staff, students and parents who help us achieve results!

What do we mean by Good Discipline? How can we teach Self-Discipline?
Discipline governs every aspect of our lives in some way, and the need for discipline is present at home, in school, and on the job. To put it succinctly, discipline implies rules, or guidelines if you will, for behavior. Without rules or guidelines, our world would be a chaotic place. People would work if and when they wanted to, leave their jobs whenever they felt like it, and do whatever they chose while there. Driving would be life-threatening because speed would be a matter of choice. Police would be nonexistent because there would be no rules to enforce. Discipline, however, is not an inherent attribute. It is a learned characteristic taught at home, in school, and on the job. When the school teaches discipline effectively, student learning is improved, and the health and safety of our students are protected. Further, students enjoy and feel safer and connect more with school when rules are applied in a fair, firm, and consistent manner.
Before discipline can be effective, however, the rules must be defined so that students know what is expected of them. That’s why schools publish their codes of conduct each year and make them available to both the students and parents. Most schools now have them posted on their web sites for easy access. The “School Rules” are developed by the board of education, parents, school staff members, with input from the School Site Council and Parent Teacher Organizations at each site. Expected behaviors are specified, examples and situations discussed, and consequences for not behaving appropriately are stated. Normally, consequences are progressive, with counseling and a verbal reprimand as the minimum penalty, and expulsion as the most severe. With these guidelines, school administrators and classroom teachers investigate each situation, make fair decisions, and can adjust the consequence to fit the infractions. Each situation is unique and each of the individuals involved are unique so the need for fair, firm, consistent and appropriate procedures is always the goal.
Rewards are more effective than punishment. Although consequences are part of any disciplinary action, humiliation has no place in good discipline. Students won’t feel like behaving better if the system is too harsh or perceived as unfair. Therefore, rewards have become an important and positive strategy used in most schools. Many schools share a student’s success with parents by sending positive phone calls home, e-mails, weekly progress reports, and having school-wide events and activities celebrating both academic and positive behavior. Students will
work hard to achieve the type of recognition for their success that can be taken home to share with both parents. Teachers may also make a contract with a student to improve academic deficiencies or poor behavior. With this method, a student agrees to modify behavior or improve academic performance by setting daily, weekly, or monthly goals. Upon attainment of the goals, the student receives everything from a sticker to a special privilege, extra free time, computer time or any previously agreed-upon reward. Another aspect of discipline is its application in peer mediation as a strategy to help settle students’ personal conflicts. As peer mediators, students are trained to apply conflict resolution methods in order to assist fellow students in solving their disputes. This approach works because it teaches students how to apply self-discipline and self-responsibility in difficult situations. Life is not easy so students need to develop coping skills to handle the “ups and downs” they will experience throughout their life. There is no doubt about it- Students will test the limits both at home and at school. If they sense a lack of uniformity in the way rules are applied, if proposed consequences are not carried out, and if rules are changed continually, then all the rules in the world will have little or no value. Trust that a fair, firm, and consistent system is in place and that the rules apply to everyone equally is critical to a successful school. It also reinforces the motto of ‘I am responsible for myself ”. What defines good discipline in schools? Good discipline is constructive rather than destructive. Good discipline teaches, rather than punishes and is a positive process, rather than a negative one. Good discipline builds understanding, not resentment, and is fair, fitting both the incident and building proper behavior expectations. Good discipline also teaches students how to develop self-discipline, which motivates them to demonstrate responsible behavior. This, in turn, builds self-esteem, teaches them respect for others, and instills in them the desire to value rules and limits, all of which have a direct influence on their success in life. Acquiring self-discipline and self-responsibility is a life-long process, and parents play an essential role in the process by reinforcing good discipline. Our students benefit by becoming good citizens who will make a difference in our world and our future. As always it is critical to remember that it is a team effort with home and school communications being the key to success for your student in the classroom.

Fall Starts Here, Yeah!
all is here and it’s time to get ready for the upcoming winter season. Although San Elijo Hills is a newer community, there are still maintenance issues around the house that homeowners must address to insure that the upcoming months are warm, comfortable and above all, safe! Even in a climate as temperate as San Diego’s, we still feel winter’s chill when the sun goes down. So it’s important to ensure that air and heat circulate throughout the house in an efficient manner. Air leaks can add a lot to a heating bill. Pick a windy day and close all windows and doors. Take an incense stick, light it, and trace around windows. If the smoke doesn’t stay vertical, there is a leak. Air escapes mostly around edges where a window meets another unit (between the two panels of a double-hung window), where it slides, or where it’s hinged. Any serious leaks should mean replacement windows; for smaller fixes, however, use some rope caulk (available at a hardware store) and mold it into the gaps where air seeps out. For drafty doors, have weatherstripping installed. Get your thermostat working harder for you; if it’s programmable, turn it down at night and then back up in the morning before you wake up. Just reducing the temperature 5 to 10 degrees lower than normal when you’re in bed, then ramping it back up to the normal house temperature 30 minutes before you wake up, could save up to ten per cent off your heating bill. Before you even get into this habit, though, it’s time to assess your thermostat’s condition. Test your thermostat by setting it to 80 degrees; you should hear it turn on and feel warm air circulate within minutes. If it doesn’t, this is why

Do the words “math homework” strike fear in your child…or you? What if we told you that we can change that fear into better grades and higher self-confidence, and eliminate the frustration, tears, and fights over math homework? Imagine how much better homework time would be. Mathnasium has helped thousands of children worldwide—your child could be next! Better grades are just the beginning at Mathnasium. Discover how a better understanding of math can change your child’s attitude…and with understanding comes passion! Before you know it, your child could be crazy about math.
it’s important to do a test run before the cold weather kicks in! If you are handy and manage the general upkeep of your home, then there are guides on the web to do some trouble-shooting. For most of us, however, this means a visit from a licensed technician! They will do the cleaning and servicing needed to allow for peak performance. This is also the time to put in a new clean air filter. In fact, changing the filter up to once a month during the heating system, if you really use your heater, can help save money on your electric bill in the long run. By the way – I’ve read that the kitchen range hood filter (the one above your stove, often a source of guck and grime,) apparently can be cleaned in the dishwasher to the point of being good as new. I haven’t tried this myself, but after I run it by my manufacturer for approval, I’m going to try this tip out! Another important undertaking is to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Dust them and verify that they are in working order; commonly, this just means pressing a “test” button – refer to manufacturer instructions if you’re unsure. In fact, smoke alarms should be checked on a monthly basis. Did you know that the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends replacing smoke alarms every ten years? Both battery operated and electric smoke alarms become less sensitive with age. While you have your ladder out, take a few moments to address any ceiling fans, optimizing them for winter heat dispersal. First, clean the fan blades of all dust, then switch them to a clockwise spin. This will push hot air downward from the ceiling and keep rooms warmer longer. In the winter, hot water is in high demand at home. Prepare your hot water heater by using the tank’s drain valve to slowly deplete the supply by a few gallons. This bi-yearly task will help lower the sediment buildup at the bottom of a water heater, which, if left unchecked, can interfere with performance. Water leaks, in fact, just love to crop up during cold winter months. Take the time to locate and label all the important water valves in your home. These include the main water valve, water heater valve, hose valve and icemaker valves. Make sure other family members know this information as well, so that they can act if an accident happens. When leaving home, even if only for a few days, take a moment to switch off the main water valve, thus mitigating the damage from any potential pipe breaks. If you haven’t had your chimney cleaned recently – or ever – it’s important to schedule a visit with an experienced chimney sweep. They will check that the chimney is free of any bird or animal nests; monitor the flue damper operation; test the draft to see that fire is drawing upward and smoking properly; clean the chimney; and ensure that the fire brick is in good condition. Even if you only burn candles in your fire place, the services of an expert are a smart safety precaution. Now it’s time to head outside. Take your hose and rinse down the fan blades and coils of the condensing unit from your air conditioning system. After it dries, cover it with a breathable yet waterproof cover. Wet leaves and debris can rust out your unit. (For those of you with a portable window air conditioner tucked away somewhere, remove this for the winter as well, even if it’s only for a short time.) Clean out your rain gutters; again, leaves and debris can clog the system and create an expensive mess down the road. It’s not always easy to stay on top of what’s happening with your home but it’s nevertheless important to do so. An ounce of prevention is worth several thousands of dollars worth of emergency repairs! Taking the time now to do a routine checkup will keep your family happy and comfortable through the winter season and beyond.

Ask The Doctor.... How does high blood pressure cause problems?
Imagine that I’m watering my garden with a hose. I don’t like petunias, let’s say, so I pinch off the hose and the water coming out from the hose slows to a trickle. My wife discovers this and yells that I had better water her petunias! If I continue to pinch the hose, how can I increase the water output? I simply turn the spigot up and the increased water pressure forces water out from the hose. Now, imagine that it’s an artery that’s being pinched between your shoulder and hand. To maintain the flow of blood into the hand, you must crank up the “spigot.” In other words, the heart must pump harder/stronger to maintain steady circulation. The heart is nothing more than specialized muscle. If a muscle works harder, it gets bigger, and that’s the risk factor for heart attack and strokes. Jeffrey Pearson, D.O. Family Practice/Sports Medicine, www.medicine-in-motion. com , www.pph.org
My doctor told me that my blood pressure is starting to rise but I don’t feel any different than usual. Can this be harmful even though I don’t have any symptoms? R.T. The American Heart Association states that 75 million Americans over the age of 20 have a condition known as hypertension, or high blood pressure. This is one in three adults. Of those who do have high blood pressure, only about 77 percent are aware of their condition and only 44 percent have their blood pressure under control. Blood pressure is the force of blood against the artery walls. If it stays elevated over a period of time, you have high blood pressure or hypertension. A blood pressure of 140/90 is considered high. If your blood pressure is between 120/80 and 139/89 then you are said to have pre-hypertension. This means you are at risk for developing high blood pressure.
Be aware that one of our favorite foods, cheese, is also high in calories, fat and sodium, which can contribute to obesity and high cholesterol as well as elevated blood pressure. Order green salads with dressings on the side instead of soups, which are usually very high in sodium. And remember, it is also important to exercise, maintain a healthful weight, limit alcohol, and avoid smoking along with taking medications as prescribed by your doctor.

The American Heart Association recommends that we eat no more than 2300 milligrams of sodium per day. However, the Institute of Medicine has a more ideal limit of 1500 milligrams. Many Americans consume 5000-10,000 milligrams of sodium per day! If you don’t use the salt shaker, you are not off the hook! Be sure and read labels, as so many processed foods that we eat today are very high in sodium. When eating out at restaurants ask for nutrition information and avoid pickles, sauces and condiments such as soy sauce.

Many who have hypertension often also have diabetes and/or high cholesterol as well as excess weight. This is why it’s important to check in with your doctor on a regular basis for evaluation, management and treatment. Remember, because high blood pressure often does not present any symptoms; it’s referred to as the “silent killer”.
To help lower blood pressure, one of the most important things that you can do is to follow a low sodium diet, high in whole grains, poultry, fish, fresh fruits, nonfat dairy products, nuts and vegetables. This type of diet is high in potassium, calcium, magnesium, protein and fiber. Limiting fats, red meats, sweets and sugared beverages is also part of what is known as the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension).
Everyone should be concerned about their blood pressure. Those who do not have it by age 55 still have a 90% chance of developing it during their lifetime. Hypertension makes your heart work harder, increases your risk for heart disease, dementia and kidney disease. High blood pressure is often found along with a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes.
What can I change in my diet and lifestyle to help lower high blood pressure? S.W.

Be Prepared for Return of Estate Tax
hereâ€™s never really a bad time to do estate planning. But in the months ahead, you may have an extra incentive to look at your estate plans. Why? Because changes are coming to estate tax laws â€” so youâ€™ll want to be ready. Change is nothing new in the world of estate taxes, which have been in a state of flux for years. As the law now stands, there is no federal estate tax in 2010. Then, in 2011, the estate tax is scheduled to return, with an exemption amount of $1 million and a top rate of 55 percent. Yet, these figures are highly likely to change; ultimately, we may see a return to what existed in 2009: a $3.5 million or $5 million exemption and a top rate of 45 percent.
Of course, your susceptibility to the estate tax will depend on the size of your estate. But no matter what your level of assets, youâ€™ll want to have your estate plans in order. First of all, you almost certainly need a will. Youâ€™ll also need to make sure youâ€™ve named the proper beneficiaries in all your legal documents. Now, letâ€™s return to the estate tax issue. Specifically, how can you help reduce any potential estate tax burden your heirs may face? Here are some ideas to consider: Take Advantage of Your Exemptions. You and your spouse each receive an exemption from the federal estate tax. As mentioned above, this exemption could be anywhere from $1 million to $5 million, starting in 2011. To maximize these exemptions, you may want to create a credit shelter trust. In a nutshell, hereâ€™s how it works: When you die, you fund a credit shelter trust with assets equal in value to your available exemption; if you have other assets, you can leave them to your spouse, free of estate taxes. Your surviv-
ing spouse can draw income from the trustâ€™s assets while he or she is alive. Upon his or her death, the trust disperses the assets to your children or other beneficiaries, taking advantage of your original estate tax exemption. Your spouseâ€™s estate will also disperse assets to beneficiaries, using his or her exemption to reduce or avoid estate taxes. Use Life Insurance. If you owned a $1 million dollar life insurance policy, and it was subject to an estate tax rate of 55 percent, your beneficiaries would receive a death benefit of just $450,000. But if you established an irrevocable life insurance trust (ILIT) with a new insurance policy, the trust would own the policy and distribute the proceeds to the beneficiaries youâ€™ve chosen. By using an ILIT, youâ€™d keep the life insurance out of your taxable estate. Give generously. You can give up to $13,000 per year to as many individuals as you like without incurring gift taxes. And the more you give, the lower your taxable estate. You can also reduce your estate by making gifts to charitable organizations.
Keep in mind that estate planning can be complex. You will need to work with your legal and tax advisors before establishing any type of trust or other estate-planning mechanism. And with the looming return of the estate tax, thereâ€™s no time like the present to get started. Edward Jones, its associates and financial advisors are not estate planners and cannot provide tax or legal advice. Please consult your attorney or qualified tax advisor regarding your particular situation. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

The Power of Alignment: Living in Color
mall children live in a vibrant world of joy. They are fascinated by every detail of their surroundings. A moving light, a silly sound, or a different texture can elicit contagious giggles. They show us how to simply “be,” without judgment or self-criticism. The result is a world filled with color and wonder. Such joy is accessible to the very young because they constantly live in a world where their Essence, who they are at their core is readily accessible, is in alignment with their intelligence and choices. But, have you ever had the feeling that you are walking around in a black and white film? That you are going through the motions of life, but that the world seems to appear in shades of grey? Do you find yourself unable to either access the deep joy of living or rediscover a world filled with vibrant color? Most of us do not live from our Essence. We operate entirely from our linear thinking and react to our external circumstances. Over time, we disconnect from any sense of internal knowing (or intuition). But what if you were to realign with this Essence that is so easily accessed by the very young? What if we were to reenter the world of color?
In ontological coaching, Essence is referred to as your authentic self, stripped away of all external influence. It’s the real you, beyond the labels and inner critic. When you align the power of your Essence with your inherent intelligence, more power, joy, and contentment are the result. When you are out of alignment with who you are at your core, you blunt your own potential by living from your Survival Mechanism, the opposite of Essence. In a nutshell, a Survival Mechanism can be identified as an “automatic way of being.” Experts believe that from about the age of 6 or 7, we develop these Survival Mechanisms, and then we continue to build on them through our lives. At first, these Survival Mechanisms are very helpful as they keep you from touching a hot stove or running into traffic. As you age, however, Survival Mechanisms soon take on a life of their own. They result in the limitation of your potential through avoidance, fear, feelings of inadequacy, and defensiveness, among other blocks. Here’s an example of our Survival Mechanisms at work: Let’s say that your direct report at work gives you some “constructive” feedback. Do you start to imagine that you’re going to get fired? Perhaps you try to garner support from co-workers or friends to reassure you that you’re doing a fine job.
Maybe you start feeling unworthy or angry, taking the feedback personally. Or, maybe you just kick into high-gear to prove your direct report wrong. All of these reactions are examples of your Survival Mechanism at work. (Remember, your Survival Mechanism is your automatic way of being). Similarly, your home-life may be a hotbed of competing Survival Mechanisms as parents and children react to chaotic schedules, homework time, issues with extended family, and the juggling of responsibilities. Feedback from family, peers, coworkers (heck, even relative strangers) shapes the lens through which we view the world. Viewing our life through this externally-shaped lens leads most of us to live in our Survival Mechanism 90% of the time! When we do, our Essence is stifled; arbitrary circumstances “drive the bus”; and the world of grey seeps in. In Eckhart Tolle’s terms, the “ego” becomes overactive and a little internal critic keeps us from accessing joy. Let’s face it; “stuff ” happens in everyone’s life! We’re all living a human experience, and it’s natural that we will run into some “growth opportunities” along the way. When you live a life aligned with your Essence, each circumstance that arises remains simply that—a circumstance. What is going on around you does not define you, turn your world upside down, or invite the grey in. If you know who you are at your core, and design a way to live from that space 90% of the time, the result is a clearer perspective, and more joy and color in your life. So, as the holidays approach and 2010 comes to a close, imagine what life would be like if you reconnected with your Essence. In other words, imagine living a life more grounded in who you are at your core. How would your perspective of the outside world shift? What might change for you at work? What fear or barrier would you push through? How might your relationships be different? How much more powerful would your decision-making process be? And, most importantly, how much joy and color would return to your world?
After 18 successful years in the corporate world, SEH resident, Ken Diller decided to live from his Essence and pursue his passion. He is now a life-alignment coach who partners with clients to identify their Essence and create a process of reintegration that results in life-changing shifts.

business spotlight bella bella salon & boutique Susan Gaudino As you get ready for the holidays, you may want to take a little time to yourself â€“ to recharge, refresh and get ready for the New Year. Bella Bella Salon & Boutique is the perfect place to escape. A full service salon, Bella Bella offers services for hair, skin, nails as well as massage. The owner, Susan Gaudino, lives here in San Elijo Hills. She has children at both the elementary and the middle school, which keeps her active in the neighborhood. Susan has been practicing her craft of hair artistry for more than 25 years and she prides herself in providing exceptional service and finding ways to give back. Bella Bella offers a full line of services. They carry Eufora International hair care products and body cream. This Carlsbad-based product line is healing, healthy and environmentally-safe because they utilize a pharmaceutical grade Aloe Vera gel base, essential plant extracts, contain no artificial colors or fragrances, little or no petro-chemicals derived ingredients (depending on product), and have the lowest Volatile Organic (VO) rating for their aerosol products. Bella Bella also carries Glow Mineral Make Up and PCA Skincare. Bella Bella moved to a new location in 2009. They are now in the same shopping center as Michaels in Encinitas. The beautiful salon offers a unique pedicure lounge bar that makes you feel truly relaxed, as well as a boutique with unique clothing, shoes, jewelry, and handbags. What is truly unique about Bella Bella Salon & Boutique is their commitment to customer service. Susan is constantly looking for creative
ways to give back to her customers and her community. At Bella Bella, you can enjoy a complimentary facial or blow-dry during the month of your birthday. They also offer a reduced price menu on Thursdays and a variety of pricing levels to fit any budget. And, donâ€™t forget to ask about the special friends and family discount for residents of San Elijo Hills when you make your appointment. Youâ€™ll often see Bella Bella services donated as auction items at community fundraisers and they also provide lunch for the teachers and staff at San Elijo Elementary during Teacher Appreciation Week. This is all part of Bella Bellaâ€™s belief in giving back and showing their appreciation to the community. So, whether you need help looking great for a holiday party, time out to yourself, or a new look for the New Year, Bella Bella Salon & Boutique would love to help make you not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful. They offer complimentary consultations and have several anniversary specials during the month of November. You can contact them at: (760) 943-7311; 339 N El Camino Real, Encinitas, CA www.bellabellasandiego.com
