Wyatt Lowe - Giving Back, One Step At a Time They say that sometimes a single event changes the course of your life. Perhaps Wyatt Lowe will agree that one night changed the way that he looks at his life and what he is blessed to have, and made him want to make a difference to those that have so much less.

Why We Are Thankful... The Fountain asked a few kids in San Elijo to reflect on what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving. It’s the season for all of us to express our gratitude and appreciation. What are you thankful for? Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, from all of us at The Fountain.

One Journey Ends, Another Begins Principal McDonell’s time at San Elijo Elementary has come to an end. As she moves onto a new school a familiar face steps into her shoes - Mrs. Kalicki. Mrs. Kalicki says that Mrs. McDonell is not just a mentor, but a life-changing friend. There is a sense of family between Carolyn Kalicki and Lynda McDonell that will continue as they take on new roles at their respective schools.

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.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but

EverY Wed

to live by them.”- John F. Kennedy

Network San Elijo!

I have to say that of all the holidays that I’ve been exposed to since I moved here to the United States, Thanksgiving is probably my favorite. I like it more than Christmas, more than Easter or Halloween, more than Fourth of July or Labor Day or Memorial Day. I love that there is a day that we have chosen to give thanks, and nothing else. I suppose, truly, every day should be a day to give thanks, but realistically speaking, I think it’s easier to get caught up in the things that bother us each day, and forget about the things for which we are grateful. That’s just human nature; I’m not going to pretend that doesn’t happen to me regularly, and I know it probably happens to you. So, in that way, I think it’s wonderful that we have that one last Thursday in the month of November where we don’t focus on presents or Santa or decorating the house or trees, and just stop to say thank you for all we are blessed to have. I haven’t been the Editor of The Fountain for very long now, but already I see that there are so many people who make it possible for this paper to be in print. First, I’d like to thank you, for letting us be part of your day as you read this. I’d also like to acknowledge the wonderful writers that contribute to our paper on a monthly basis, some of whom have been writing for us for years. I know it’s one more thing added to your already long list of things-to-do, and we hope you know we love what you write, and are so happy to have it.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate our school correspondents who are our eyes and ears at the elementary, middle and high school, and who share their point of view with us so eloquently each month. Of course, we would like to thank our advertisers, without whom this paper would not exist. Whether you have advertised with us for years or if this is your first month, we thank you for your constant and continued support, and for helping us build a community. Living in a community like San Elijo Hills gives us many reasons to be thankful. If you have a child at the elementary or middle school, you know that the crossing guards on the busy roads are the reason why traffic flows and children remain unharmed each day. Thank you to all our crossing guards and traffic ladies who keep us safe everyday. Have you ever stopped to talk to the ladies who run the cafeteria at the school? They have the patience of saints - I am always amazed at how calm they remain as

hundreds of children come through their lines each day. I know they get paid to do their job, but the thing is, they do their job not just with a smile, but with unfailing good cheer. What about the baristas at Starbucks? The other day, they saw me in line as I waited to get my husband’s coffee, and when I got to the front, they had his drink ready, and “extra hot,” so that it would stay at the right temperature as I finished my marketing and on the drive home. I have to tell you that I was taken by surprise that they remembered not only what he drinks (and how he likes it), but that it had to be hot enough to survive the grocery shopping and a trip back home. Sure, our baristas get paid to make coffee, but they get my thanks for making my trip to Starbucks a whole lot more pleasant. I make my children go back into their classrooms at the end of each day if they have forgotten to thank their teachers. Again, it’s their job to be our children’s teachers, they get paid for it, but do they get paid for all the times they go above and beyond the call of duty? One of my daughter’s teachers made the children a “survival bag” and handed it to them on the first day of school. It was a small, thoughtful brown bag that included little gifts and many reassuring words. My daughter still talks about it, two years later. I know she didn’t need to do that, and yet she did, and still does each year. Another one of my girl’s teachers went on Christmas vacation, and while on vacation, sent each child in her class a postcard and an eraser. Necessary? Absolutely not. Kind, thoughtful and sweet? Definitely. It’s not always easy to recognize that we’re lucky. On any given day, when I’m grumpy about the umpteenth load of laundry that I’ve run, or the hundredth time I’ve mopped the floors, or the tenth trip I’ve taken to the grocery store that week, I sometimes forget that I am blessed to live where I live (and with whom I live, but that’s a story for another day), in this community we call San Elijo Hills. One of my favorite Irish phrases of thanks giving goes like this (don’t ask me how to say it, I haven’t got a clue) -- Go raibh mile maith agat -- May you have a thousand good things. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, from all of us at The Fountain.

2011 tournament champions, names left to right: (back row) *Kam Muri, Gin Na, *Jeff Sheriff, Kevin Girod, Mike Prchal, (front row) Sirgey Korelov, Simaan Hawa, *James Staton. [*Indicate SEH resident]

Families across the country look forward to Labor Day weekend as a time to celebrate the end of summer and spend time with friends and neighbors before the back to school rush. The people of San Elijo Hills are no different, but a growing number of them choose to gather in friendly competition on the soccer field, battling for the coveted Hendo’s Cup.

The San Elijo Hills’ Small Sides Soccer Tournament took place September 2 and 3 this year on the lower softball field in San Elijo Hills’ Park. This year over 40 players on five teams battled it out for the Hendo’s Cup. In the small sides format, games are played on a small field with fewer players than a regular game. The games are short but intense and the small field promotes a fast pace with teams transitioning from defense to offense quickly. The event is a challenge of skill and fitness with players often playing back-to-back games in the San Diego heat.

After five games and 200 minutes of soccer in less than 24 hours, a winning team was crowned. This year’s championship team included Kevin Girod (tournament MVP), Simaan Hawa (captain), Sirgey Korelov, Kam Muri, Gin Na, Mike Prchal, Jeff Sheriff and James Staton. If you know any of them, congratulate them on a job well done. The wellbalanced victors used their skill and fitness to overwhelm the competition and dazzle the spectators on their way to the trophy. This year the tournament featured players from neighborhoods all over San Elijo Hills. Event supporters and fans included neighbors, family and friends as well as The San Elijo Hills’ Foundation who partnered with the club to provide every player in the tournament a commemorative t-shirt. The atmosphere around the action was electric with kids cheering, instruments playing - yes instruments - and whistles blowing. The event was capped off at the player and family BBQ in San Elijo Hills’ Park where the champions were celebrated and good times were shared. Along with bragging rights for the year, the champs’ victory is enshrined at Hendo’s Local Pizza and Pints here in San Elijo Hills. On your next visit be sure to notice The Hendo’s Cup, a 20-ounce homage to the club’s commitment to the game, complete with a soccer theme. The Hendo’s Cup will be a permanent fixture at the eatery and imbues a sense of pride on the champs. No, you can’t drink from it – unless you win next year. So get your own glass and toast to the champs. The tournament has grown every year with more players and more festivities surrounding the soccer. The San Elijo Hills’ Soccer Club is already looking forward to next year’s event and plans to expand it even further by adding a soccer skills event for kids that will be open to the whole community. Look for more information on the 2012 edition of the tournament to follow. For information on the club contact: Mike Corke (mikecorke73@gmail.com)

From Our Heart To Yours

Thanks so much for the generosity of all of you who contributed to the “Back-to-School Drive” for Straight From The Heart, sponsored by the San Elijo Hills Women’s Club (SEHWC). With all of the changes a new foster child is already experiencing, being able to go to school equipped with everything they need is quite empowering to a child and gives their self-esteem a tremendous boost. Also, foster families incur significant expenses when they receive a child into their home. Oftentimes, children arrive with nothing more than the clothes on their back. Your donations will help several families, and the women of SEHWC extend a warm, heartfelt thanks to this wonderful community for helping the foster families of Straight From The Heart.  For more information about Straight From The Heart, visit their website at www. straightfromtheheartinc.com.

on your doorstep Oktoberfest – A Huge Success! Many people have commented that this year’s Oktoberfest was the best ever! People loved the fact that it was for community residents only, and that ID had to be shown to enter. Everyone has always talked about the Beer Garden, but this year’s Oktoberfest offered so much more -- it was bigger and better than ever before. Many thanks to the Schofield Family for sharing their Oktoberfest experience with us. Sarah (10), Noah (7) and Owen (5) thoroughly enjoyed Oktoberfest this year. Sarah loved decorating pumpkins, and climbed the rock wall all the way to the top (she says it’s taller than the one at REI!). Owen loved the carnival style rides - the Ferris wheel and the Bucket Ride (also called the cup ride?) were his favorite. Noah thought the prize booth was the best thing at Oktoberfest, and enjoyed all the games.

The children were so thrilled that A Colorful Universe was on hand to treat them to some ceramic painting. It was hard to choose between pumpkins, square plates and round plates, but every child got to paint one. Real pumpkins were colored, glittered, stickered and glued, green hats supplied by Art Soup were made and all the children got to play the various carnival-style games that were offered. The Schofield children were not as lucky with food - by the time they got to the hot dog stand, they were sold out of hot dogs. However, there were many more choices for people to try - sauerkraut, bratwurst, spicy sausage, pretzels and potato salad filled their stomachs, and apple and berry strudel sweetened their mouths. The Schofield kids stayed at Oktoberfest from 3-6pm, and proclaimed that this was the best San Elijo Hills’ Community Event that they can remember!  

Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony The Annual San Elijo Hills’ Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on Friday, December 2, 7-9pm in the Town Center. You will not want to miss out on all the activities. There will be festive entertainment, delicious cookies and plenty of holiday cheer. Be sure to check the community website (www. sanelijohills.net) for updates and additional information.

Update on Sharlie Kaltenbach Last month we told you about Sharlie Kaltenbach, a wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend who is currently awaiting a double lung and heart transplant. We told you about Sharlie’s Angels who have been fundraising to help with the exorbitant medical costs that come with a procedure like this.

Well, the Angels continue to do their work. On November 5, there will be an afternoon of fun, giving and honoring Sharlie with a silent and live auction, music, food and festivities hosted by her friends. Tickets are on sale now and the whole family is invited (children are free!). All proceeds will benefit Sharlie’s Angels Medical Fund.

on your doorstep AYSO San Elijo – Bringing the World’s Game Local! The 2011 Fall Season for AYSO Region 1505 has proven to be yet another successful season bringing to its members an all-encompassing quality youth sports program. While the main season is winding down, there is still more on the horizon with playoffs, All-Star games, Spring Turbo soccer and tournament season for AYSO Matrix teams.

Region 1505 has grown significantly this year, not just in numbers, but in the services that are provided. The Region now has certified referee instructors and coach instructors that train the all-volunteer staff to ensure a quality experience for the players. Player development, one of AYSO’s 6 Philosophies, was emphasized during this season as professionally run player clinics were provided free to all players.

Breast Cancer Awareness Promoted by Girls U14 Team Coach Adrian Dominguez and his GU14 team have had quite a successful season so far. They are currently undefeated. In October they decided to promote Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink socks on Saturdays, coach included! The girls are hoping to continue their winning ways into the Area and Section playoffs.

Free Friday Night Clinics a Success This season the Region hosted five professionally run Friday night clinics that were free to all registered AYSO players. The clinics were very popular with over 120 players in attendance each Friday night. Mike Hovenic, of Mike Hovenic Soccer Camps and Director of Coaching for AYSO Matrix, and his professional trainers provided the instruction during the sessions. Region 1505 will look to expand these free clinics in future seasons by providing more dates and specialized training. Members of this team are: Keilani Hirakawa, Lesley Tzab, Alexis Alaniz, Jasmyn Hirbawi, Priyanka Athalye, Madison Olsen, Alina Dominguez, Kaeli Shaw, Brianna Foyt, Maddy Israel, Donya Michaels, Ella Ordonez and Aubrey Odom.

Giving Kids Sports, Globally The players and members of Region 1505 are quite thankful for all they enjoy with respect to sports and would like to help those less privileged to experience that same joy and thrill. AYSO Region 1505 will be hosting and coordinating a used/new sports equipment/uniform drive to help other children and parents throughout the world enjoy sports as much as they have. The Region is being supported in this effort by Childish Couture, Hometown Realty and Albertsons. All items collected will be distributed by Sports Gift (www.sportsgift.org). Donations can be dropped off at Childish Couture seven days a week. M-F: 10-5 and Sun: 10-2. Donations received will earn you a 15 percent off everything voucher.

kids of san elijo Wyatt Lowe - Giving Back, One Step At a Time They say that sometimes a single event changes the course of your life. Perhaps Wyatt Lowe will agree that one night changed the way that he looks at his life and what he is blessed to have, and made him want to make a difference to those that have so much less. It started, for Wyatt, with music. At the age of 13, he plays the guitar so exceptionally well that he plays with professional artists in San Diego, at clubs, concerts and performances. One night, not too long ago, he played for B.B. King, the renowned musical genius, at an after party at Humphreys by the Bay. It was at this point that he was approached by a man named Jeffrey Sitcov, founder of an organization called Photocharity (www.photocharity. org). Photocharity is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for organizations whose goal is to empower and save homeless youth in San Diego County and beyond. Photocharity supports The Storefront, the only homeless shelter in San Diego for teens aged 12-17, and is a program of the San Diego Youth and Community Services (www.sdyouthservices.org). Here, children are assured a safe place to stay until their lives have stabilized and they have received the help of trained staff and supervisors. The youth who come to Storefront are required to go to school, and if they skip a day of school, they lose their bed for that night. They are trained and prepared for a career, and Storefront has a 99 percent success rate in that 99 out of 100 children who leave their facility at the age of 17 are drug and crime free, and have turned their lives around. So when Jeffrey Sitcov asked Wyatt Lowe to help him, Wyatt said, “Tell me what I can do.” Jeffrey asked Wyatt to help spread the word about Photocharity’s National Walk and Concert. The walk will be held on Saturday, November 12, at NTC Park at Liberty Station in Point Loma. The entry fee is $18 per person, and the

goal is to set up teams, each consisting of 11 or more people. Wyatt is in the process of setting up his team, and currently has 12 members signed up. He is the team captain, or, as they call it, the “Team Angel,” with many little angels helping and supporting along the way. Wyatt publicizes this event every time he plays music with his band, or at a cafe, club or concert. Wyatt says that the trip to Storefront changed his life. He says that he has more than he needs, and recognizes that these kids need more than they have. Registering for Photocharity’s walk is one way that people can help. However, you can also donate money to Storefront at the websites listed below. It’s staggering to believe that in the city of San Diego, there are 2,000 homeless children between the ages of 12-17 who cannot get government assistance, and are forced to walk the streets each night. It’s even more staggering to think that there are 4,000 youth between the ages of 18-24 who are in similar situations. These children can get help, and are getting aid thanks to Storefront, Photocharity and other benefactors. Perhaps, as we tuck our children into their beds tonight, it’s something for us to think about. Wyatt Lowe thinks about this a lot. At the time that this article is being written, Wyatt has raised $400 himself for his contribution to the walk. He hopes to increase that number to $5,000. With his courage, hard work, determination and talent, we are certain he will. But a little help would probably go a long way. To register for the walk, or to help a 13-year-old San Elijo boy in his quest to help save the youth of San Diego, visit the following websites: www.photocharity.com and www.savehomelessyouth.org

Why We Are Thankful...

kids of san elijo Giving Back – The Vongsachang Children Founders of The San Marcos Youth Orchestra

The Vongsachang family is perhaps one of the most musically gifted and talented in San Elijo Hills. You may get them mixed up, but let’s try, together, to remember. There’s Hursuong (17), her older sister Hurnan (20), younger brother, Hurlink (13, at San Elijo Middle), Hurjade (cousin, 19), Hurjane (cousin, 17), and Huryoung (cousin, 12). Hurjane and Hursuong both attend San Marcos High School and the Vongsachang family lives here in San Elijo Hills. Why are we telling you about this family? It all started with a flyer that came home with the children, announcing a music program called “The San Marcos Youth Orchestra.” It informed us that there is a program that allows children who are interested in learning the violin or cello to take lessons at no charge, except for the price of instrument purchases. It got a lot of people wondering just who was behind this excellent idea. Who was volunteering to take the time to teach elementary and middle schoolers how to play music? Was it really free? How did the program work? Well, the program is run by Hursuong and Hurjane Vongsachang, with lots of help from family and friends. All of the Vongsachang children have played either the violin or cello for 8-10 years. This really is a family run program, and even Hursuong’s dad is involved, as he acts as supervisor at the Friday meetings. Here’s another flabbergasting realization – these teenagers give up their Friday afternoons, every week, to teach our children how to play a musical instrument, gaining nothing financially from this situation at all. They don’t get paid, they don’t get to go out at the end of a long week at high school, and they have to organize classes, lesson plans, groups of children, juggle schedules and manage their own academic and social lives. Also, did I mention they are teenagers? Isn’t it refreshing to see teenagers that are willing and happy to be involved in the community? Five years ago, Hursuong and Hurjane were appointed to the San Marcos Youth Commission and, with its support for the last five years, have run the orchestra program at the San Marcos Community Center. The program has truly become a community organization, with nearly 50 students currently enrolled and several high school volunteers acting as helpers. Hursuong told us why she and the rest of her family went through the trouble of starting this group. She told us that when they lived in Arizona, their school had an orchestra program as part of the curriculum. On moving to San Elijo Hills, they realized that orchestra was not part of our schools’ curriculum and the Vongsachang children missed being part of a large musical group. So they decided to do something about it – and the San Marcos Youth Orchestra was born.

Don’t think for a minute that they are going to be easy on their students just because they themselves are teens. There are rules you must follow if you want to be part of this group of performers. Hursuong says, “If you come on time, you’re late. But if you come early, you’re on time.” No running around (there are musical instruments everywhere to trip over), no chewing gum (you can’t possibly chew gum and hold a violin at the same time), no long nails (how will you play with those talons?), and if you don’t let them know you can’t be at your lesson, you have three strikes. Then, you’re out. It sounds serious, doesn’t it? It does, and yet the students are having an amazing time, learning, playing, laughing and socializing. The class takes place every Friday from 4:30-6pm at the San Marcos Community Center. They have performances and concerts many times a year – at the Community Center, festivals, and street fairs. They would really appreciate donations. Hursuong told me that they themselves pay for many of the expenses that come with this program. They also need volunteers who play the violin or cello, but any musical background is welcome – soon they will be graduating and leaving for college, and they would like someone to keep their legacy alive. More than anything, they want you to come and listen to them perform, and support, not just them, but their students. Hursuong and her team of teachers are so proud of their students (some of whom have been with them for five years), and want to share their success with you. It’s truly incredible what one family has accomplished here in San Marcos. Taking a love of music and being able to share it with others takes dedication, selflessness, organization, skill, time and patience. As adults, we struggle to find time to give back, but when you find children who can and have, it’s a wonderful source of inspiration to us all. If you’d like to donate to this worthwhile cause, please contact Hursuong at sm_youthorchestra@yahoo.com. You can also send a donation in the form of a check to: San Marcos Youth Orchestra Donations San Marcos Community Center 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069 Please make checks out to “City of San Marcos” with San Marcos Youth Orchestra on the memo line.

school news Mrs. McDonell - From San Elijo to Richland, The Journey Continues...

by K ar ishma si n n ott, community editor

I sat in Mrs. McDonell’s office and looked around at what is usually an impeccably neat space. It looked empty, with boxes on the carpet and bare walls. However, the bookshelf was still full of books, pictures, a jar of Squishies (confiscated items, perhaps?), a giant cookie jar in the shape of an apple, gifts from children and parents, and lots and lots of books. One book was called Hope, another A Long Good Life. There was a sign that read, “SOAR – One’s attitude determines one’s altitude.� There was more to look at, but then I got distracted by a big sign that read, “DUNK ME, 3pm�, and I started to laugh. There, in a nutshell, on a bookshelf, was Mrs. McDonell, Principal of San Elijo Elementary for the last five years. There is the serious Mrs. McDonell, the no-nonsense principal who sets the ground rules and restrictions, and the principal who can be funny and playful – the Sumo wrestler, McDJ, and of course, the dunk-tank victim that the children love so much. It’s been a journey for Mrs. McDonell, and her time here at San Elijo Elementary has come to an end. She leaves our school for Richland, where she will serve as Principal as well as Director of the Professional Development Campus for the San Marcos Unified School District. Three weeks ago, Dr. Holt, Superintendent of SMUSD, came to San Elijo and offered Mrs. McDonell this new position. The school year had already begun at SEES, and with all the construction behind them and new goals in sight, Mrs. McDonell and Mrs. Kalicki had their work cut out for them, and had just rolled up their sleeves. Needless to say, she was caught off guard, but was surprised and honored to have been asked to take on this new position. There were many reasons to say “no,� most of which stem from the love that Mrs. McDonell has for the staff, students and the parents of this community. However, there were many personal, career-oriented reasons to say “yes,� the most important being the need to inspire, guide and educate teachers so that they can, in return, inspire, guide and educate their students. Her desire to impact teachers (to be a “teacher of teachers�) fuels Mrs. McDonell because she knows that in the end, the children benefit most from well-instructed teachers. When she walked into her home kitchen on the day she was offered this new position, she said to her husband, “I’m leaving San Elijo,� to which he responded, “What in the world happened at school today?� He assumed that someone would have to drag Lynda McDonell kicking and screaming from

the San Elijo Campus. This isn’t far from the truth – Mrs. McDonell tears up every time she talks about leaving this school, and wants the children to know that she isn’t abandoning them, but instead, leaving them in the best hands possible as she takes on a new role in the San Marcos School District. Mrs. McDonell has worked in almost every school in the San Marcos School District. She has taught at Alvin Dunn and La Costa Meadows as the Assistant Principal at both (at the same time!), and then at San Elijo’s K-8, under the guidance of Doug Hall (now Principal of the middle school). On her 50th birthday, Mrs. McDonell was asked to be Principal of San Elijo Elementary, and in August of 2006, she opened the doors of our groundbreaking school. My daughter (who is in fifth grade) thought it was sad that Mrs. McDonell couldn’t stay one more year because the current fifth graders were in kindergarten when San Elijo first opened. Mrs. McDonell is the only principal that these fifth graders have known in all their years at this school, and it would have, for them, completed a circle if she had stayed “just one more year.� However, “change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights,� Mrs. McDonell pointed out to me, quoting Pauline Keezer. It’s time. She is so proud of our school because it is a great place to be a teacher, a student, a parent and an administrator. She is so thankful for her staff and the wonderful parents who have supported her during her time here as Principal. It’s a collaborative effort and a shared responsibility and she’s proud of the school because it’s a safe haven for children to learn, find their passion and build on it, grow with it. The school has grown, and as it grew, it adapted to the needs of the children. The teachers are confident, the technology is moving into the classroom as teachers add this to their toolbox, and the children are ready to learn. Mrs. McDonell sees that it is time for her to go forward and teach teachers and students alike at a new school. Our loss, it seems, is Richland Elementary’s gain. However, we wish her the very best of luck as her journey continues, and hope that she stops by, once in a while, to visit. Perhaps, if the children are good, McDJ may come as well. Good luck, Mrs. McDonell, and thank you for all the years you have given to SEES.

We will pick up your laundry, wash, dry, neatly fold it, and return it back to your doorsteps. t1FSGFDUGPSUIFCVTZNPNPSEBE t)PVTFLFFQFSTXPOUEPJU 8FXJMM t(SFBU#BCZTIPXFSHJGU

school news One Journey Ends, Another Begins by K a r ishm a si n n ott, co m m un ity e ditor

I was sitting outside Mrs. Kalicki’s office, waiting to interview her for the paper this month, and watching her through her office window. She was furiously typing on her computer with concentration and focus, and had no idea I was sitting outside, watching. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, two boys came charging into the office and burst into Mrs. Kalicki’s room, without a knock or warning. “Mrs. Kalicki, Mrs. Kalicki,� they say in frantic tones, “There’s a GIRL in the BOYS’ bathroom!� Mrs. Kalicki looks up from her paperwork and pulls out a Post-it, and very calmly says, “A girl inside the boys’ bathroom?� “Yes, yes,� they nod vigorously, “Inside. And she’s wearing a purple dress and she’s taller than us.� “Ok,� says Mrs. Kalicki. “Describe this girl for me. What grade do you think she’s in? Was she actually in the boys’ bathroom or was she walking outside it?� And so this question and answer continued for a few minutes. After learning that the girl was no longer in the boys’ bathroom, Mrs. Kalicki took down all pertinent information and informed the boys that she would be out there at recess, and would investigate. She took her notes, reassured the boys that it would be taken care of and sent them back to class. A few minutes into our interview, the boys are back. “Mrs. Kalicki, her name is -------, and she is in ------’s class.� Mrs. Kalicki asks them how they did such splendid detective work. They tell her how they gathered this information, and leave us to finish our talk. I laughed at her and said, “Well, there’s my opening paragraph for The Fountain - an hour in the life of our new Principal.� It’s been said that some students at San Elijo are scared of Mrs. Kalicki. Well, it certainly didn’t look like it today when those boys came bursting in the room. There was definitely a feeling that Mrs. Kalicki would “fix it� if they came in to tell her, and they felt safe enough to come racing in to inform her of the calamity-of-the-day. It’s a big change taking over as Principal of a school in the middle of a school year, but Mrs. Kalicki is the best person for the job. These words come, not from me, but from Mrs. McDonell who says she can move forward with a sense of peace, knowing that she is leaving our school in the most capable hands of Carolyn Kalicki. My goal when I went in to speak with Mrs. Kalicki was to find out who she is, because most of us know her as “the intervention specialist� or “the

discipline lady.� Actually, Mrs. Kalicki has taught at San Marcos Unified since 1995, starting with a job share at Paloma, and ending with this – a promotion from Vice Principal to Principal of San Elijo Elementary in 2011. In between, Carolyn Kalicki has worn many hats, and we learned about some of them. In 1995, Mrs. Kalicki joined Paloma Elementary and taught there for six years. She taught a 3/4 combo and a 2/3 combo as well. At this point, she was a very involved teacher, participating in before and after school programs, PTO, Computer Lab instructor and more. In 2001, she moved to Discovery and taught first grade for five years. She had children during these five years (two boys, more about them soon), and spent these years being a phenomenal teacher, but also learning to be a new mom. While on maternity leave, she was at a meeting, and was introduced to Mrs. McDonell by Mrs. Groff. Mrs. Kalicki was at the meeting with her baby (Adam) in her arms, and Mrs. Groff took the baby from her and said, “You need to speak with this lady, I’ll hold the baby.� That was the beginning of a very long friendship between Mrs. McDonell and Mrs. Kalicki. In 2006, Carolyn Kalicki came on board as the intervention specialist at SEES. Two years later, she became Mrs. McDonell’s right hand as Vice Principal. There is a very special camaraderie between these ladies – I could feel it in the way that they don’t even need to speak to each other in full sentences. They communicate constantly and efficiently, and are always aware of what has happened in the other person’s day at school. Mrs. Kalicki says that Mrs. McDonell is not just a mentor, but a life-changing friend. There is a sense of family between Carolyn Kalicki and Lynda McDonell that will continue as they take on new roles at their respective schools. Family is important to Mrs. Kalicki – she has two sons – Brad (8), and Adam (5), and a husband, Paul, to whom she has been married for 16 years. On their 16th anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Kalicki took their boys out for a six-mile bike ride on their new bikes. Brad and Adam both go to Richland Elementary (where Mrs. McDonell will be Principal), and you will often see them on the San Elijo campus after school hours as their mother shuttles between appointments and meetings and after school enrichment activities. Her boys are very different, she says – Brad is sensitive and caring and heavily into Legos and playing his Wii, and Adam is quiet and creative and can often be found in the garage with his dad and their tools, building guitars out of scrap material or creating a new project together. As a mother of young school-going boys, Mrs. Kalicki understands the value of communication between parents and staff, and hopes that you will always feel free to knock on her door, email with questions or concerns, call her on the phone, or try to catch her as she walks around the campus each day. Her goal is to continue on the same path as she has these last few years – ensuring that all children, at all levels, are getting the academic exposure that they need. She wants them to be challenged and inspired each day and to come to school knowing that it is a safe, supportive, nurturing place to be. Mrs. Kalicki thanks the San Elijo Community for their thoughtfulness and gratitude – her in-box has been overflowing with letters and emails of congratulations and offers to help, all of which make her feel very confident as she moves forward as Principal. She loves the connections that she has with families, the staff and students, and knows that as she takes on this commitment to our school, she has a system of support that will help her keep our school SOARing for the rest of this year, and for many to come.

school news SEMS Band News By: Priyanka Athalye

Music. Melodies and harmonies artistically combining to form that piece of music. That’s what we do at San Elijo Middle School. Our school is a place where some students who have chosen to participate in our successful music program get to explore themselves. This month, SEMS will host many exciting performances by the various bands. We have quite a few levels and ensembles: Beginning, Intermediate and Golden Eagle bands, as well as The Symphonic Winds Ensemble, Jazz Band and Drum Line. Each of these is different and balanced in its own way. Beginning and Intermediate bands are for students who are learning to play their instruments for the first time or have studied music for at least a year. Golden Eagle band consists of musicians who are in seventh or eighth grade and have played for at least a year and are ready for their next musical challenge. The Symphonic Winds Ensemble is the highest level at SEMS, and the only band for which students have to audition. There are two other bands, the Jazz Band and Drum Line. Jazz Band, a very talented group, holds their practices before school and performs every Friday in the morning. Drum Line is a collaboration of drums, marimbas, xylophone, and other instruments. They practice after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. San Elijo has an amazing music program and we take pride in what we do. You will be able to experience music from these talented musicians this month. Beginning and Intermediate bands will perform on November 15, and the Golden Eagle and Symphonic Winds groups on the 16. The concert will begin at 7pm in the Performing Arts building at our school and the Jazz Band will begin entertaining guests on both days at 6:30pm.

Community Service: The Tricks of the Trade By: Skylar Starrs Siben

In middle school, all students are required to do at least one hour of community service per month for 20 percent of their grade in their history classes. We’ve had great participation over the years and students should try their best to do some community service this year so we can make San Diego a great place to live for all of us. Here are some easy ways to earn community service that are typically used by students and often turn out to be fun: • Beach cleanups • Coaching or refereeing sports (or cleaning up the field afterwards) • Jazz Band • ASB • Freerice.com • Volunteering at Art events • Volunteering at an elementary school (That’s what I do!) • Running in races for a good cause • Helping feed the homeless. Any of the following are also good as long as you’re not getting paid: • Peer tutoring or helping a sibling with homework • Babysitting (especially for emergencies Ex: Parent is going to the hospital.) • Taking care or helping with pets or other animals • Neighborhood cleanups • or even cleaning someone’s car! There are so many ways to do community service so be a role model and do a little something every month to take care of your community.

people in your neighborhood Meet The George Family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thor, Angela, Brooklyn, and London You may have seen Thor Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and picture in the ads in The Fountain for Bank of America during the past year. What you may not know is that behind the mortgage broker is a husband, and father of two lovely little girls. Thor has been in the Real Estate industry since 1997. He started in lending over 10 years ago as a mortgage broker. When the banking and mortgage industry began to collapse and our economy began to crumble, the business got much more difficult and challenging. Thor wanted to stay with the strongest and most recognizable name, so he joined Bank of America Home Loans. He loves the strong sense of family that he has in the Carmel Valley Corporate Office. Thor has also developed a niche working with the military, helping with VA and FHA loans for first-time buyers. With the huge military presence in our town, many of his clients come from Camp Pendleton and the naval base, right here in San Diego. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not working, Thor loves spending time with his girls, Brooklyn (9) and London (19 months). He likes to take them to the beach, hike and walk the trails right here in town, and ride bikes with the girls as well. Brooklyn is your typical fourth grader. She loves tennis, soccer, dolls and fashion. She can be somewhat shy when you first meet her, but once she

warms up, she is really funny, sweet and silly. She is the first grandchild on both sides of the family and has developed a unique and close relationship with both sets of grandparents. Brooklyn is a great role model to her little sister who admires her every step. London came into this world six weeks early, however, she does a great job at keeping up with her big sister. Brooklyn has quickly learned that patience is important when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nine and your sister is almost seven years younger than you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy being a big sister especially when your little sister would rather play in your room with your toys than in her own. Thor and Angela have been married for more than 12 years. Spending time with family and friends is most important to them. Each year they go to Cancun to vacation with Angelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. The George family has lived in San Elijo since 2006. Thor and his wife really understand the value of family and are lucky to have gone to college in San Diego and to live so close to their families. As San Elijo Hills continues to grow and flourish, Thor and his family are proud to be a part of such a great developing neighborhood surrounded by its friendly people and businesses.

We Are Grateful To Be In San Elijo Hills

The Shapiro Family just moved to San Elijo Hills this year, and The Fountain would like to thank Jami for her submission this month. Jami, we are so glad you’re happy here, and on behalf of all of us, welcome to San Elijo Hills. – Editor

O

People warned us about how much more expensive California was going to be, but we’ve found it’s really not much more. The prices at Costco are the same as what we paid in Florida and produce is actually a bit less expensive in most grocery stores, especially for organic food. Plus, you can’t beat Trader Joe’s!

n August 8, our family of five flew from Florida to San Diego on the biggest adventure any of us has undertaken. My husband Adam accepted a position as Dean of CHABSS at CSUSM. This meant moving our 10, eight and three-year old daughters from my hometown and their birthplace, and away from family and lifelong friends. We considered ourselves to be pretty fortunate living in Florida with mild winter climates, beautiful beaches, no state income tax and Disney World just twoand-a-half hours away. So here we are, creating a new home and we love it! In Florida, air conditioning is a necessity; we never slept with the windows open. Our electric bill has been cut in half with that savings alone. Most homes in Florida have St. Augustine grass that is not only drought intolerant but also incredibly itchy and sharp. Now we can sit in the grass and our water bill has also been cut in half. We eat outside with no fear of mosquitoes, daily commutes are scenic and we can see the ocean and the sunset as we make our turn onto Questhaven Road.

The choices we have for activities and shopping are overwhelming – there are festivals and Farmers’ Markets, wonderful parks and family hikes to the Town Center for Peppertree or Utopia. We can picnic as the sun sets. Living on the east coast meant you had to get up before the crack of dawn to witness something so beautiful. After about one month of moving into the area, I was injured in an exercise class, and was completely off one foot for over a week. New friends and neighbors rallied to help our family with carpool or playdates for our three year old. I love the laidback attitude and tolerance of people here. I’ve always been a type “A.” Oh, and thank you to the people who let me into their lane. I’m the one who’s totally lost all the time!

A Guilt-Free Thanksgiving A

guilt-free Thanksgiving? I can hear you now. You’re probably thinking I’m going to recommend you swap out that big bird for tofurkey and eat raw pumpkin instead of pie. But NO! Surprise! Instead, I’m going to recommend the opposite - Savor your traditional Thanksgiving recipes and eat up!

People get stressed out during the holidays worrying about all of the extra pounds they will gain from all that great food - Grandma’s special green bean casserole or aunt Betty’s pumpkin pie. But, I think we’re feeling guilty over the wrong thing. In fact, Thanksgiving just might be the one day most people get right! Real food from scratch? What a great event! When you cook from scratch, you know what goes in your food. You can control the sodium, oils, and fats. The truth is, if you cooked dinner five times per week for all of 2012, you and your family would feel better, weigh less and would most likely be a lot more healthy. Okay, I know what you are thinking (because I was there). You are thinking, that’s crazy! I’m lucky to get a few chicken nuggets into the oven before we have to go to soccer practice, piano, dance, football, etc. How do you expect me to cook a meal from scratch? When you’re used to tossing a corn dog in the oven or adding a box of stuff to boiling water, the idea of meal planning and cooking is an overwhelming challenge. But, once you get the hang of it, it is no big deal. I promise! Seriously - I’ve been there!

pag e 2 2 : th e fou nta i n

Making your food from scratch does not have to take a lot of time. All it takes is a little planning ahead of time. And, that’s the real challenge! I have had the privilege to work with many clients this last year on improving their food choices and the number one challenge people have is figuring out what to cook and having the stuff ready to go. It’s taken me four years to create a system that simplifies the process of incorporating whole foods back into my family’s diet - from meal planning to grocery shopping to cooking and eating! Instead of you having to go through that whole process, I’m going to pass along the tools and strategies I’ve developed to make it crazy easy to shop, cook and eat healthy, real, fresh, whole foods. Imagine - no more meal planning, no more grocery lists, no more trying to figure out what’s healthy and what’s not. Just healthy, good meals, easy shopping, and not having to think about it all! If you want to ‘join the club’ - check out www.thekitchenskinny.com. We are going to have a great time taking the pain out of eating healthier in 2012. Meanwhile, this Thanksgiving, stop with the guilt and instead enjoy your friends, family and the good wholesome food. Then, I challenge you to spend 2012 eating more Thanksgiving-like meals every day (meals made from real, whole food ingredients). TK Smith is a Specialist in Fitness Nutrition. He lives in San Elijo Hills with his wife and two teenagers. If you want to eat better in 2012, visit www.thekitchenskinny.com.

Being Thankful Starts at Home N

ovember is a month that can often inspire introspection, due in part to Thanksgiving being celebrated by many families. For some of us, however, the fall/winter holiday season is bittersweet as we can’t help but remember family and friends that we are no longer in touch with, or who have already passed on. Personally, the loss of my parents many years ago looms large, even though I have a treasured husband and child of my own. So it’s easy to sympathize with other people who find themselves conflicted when upcoming celebrations imply a merriment that can be difficult to instantaneously tap into. It’s from this standpoint that I write about giving thanks and finding grace at home.

If you are a parent, as you watch your kids grow it’s inevitable that flashbacks hearkening to your own childhood will start popping up. For those of you fortunate enough to have mostly happy memories, this is a fun time to re-do and re-imagine past family events. Try to recall what made that trip up North to see the leaves turn so memorable, or see whether getting wet while bobbing for apples is as fun for the offspring as it was for you. But if you have a past that’s best left just where it is, this is an opportunity to ensure that your kids have a better go of it than you did. After all, one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their child is protection and a strong sense of security. Now that my own little one is past the toddler stage and forming life-long memories, I’m hoping to research and share activities and crafts that were common to children growing up when my folks were young. Even if my parents never had the pleasure of meeting their grandchild, their spirit can be felt, in part, by my little one discovering natural wonders similar to those they experienced many decades earlier. Are there any childhood recollections that you’d like to share with your kid? Teaching them to snowboard, re-visiting a local historic point, or even reading to them a classic holiday story that you never forgot is a meaningful way to come full-circle with your roots. Many of us have been raised with a strong sense of volunteerism in our ancestry. When I reminisce about my mom and dad, I’m struck by how much they helped out in the community. Often, but not always, they assisted based on whatever extra-curricular activities were being pursued at the time:

pag e 24 : th e fo u n ta i n

there were multiple figure skating pot-lucks and band camp fundraisers! But my folks also extended themselves to causes that they had no immediate connection to. This has had a huge impact on me, and I plan to start teaching my child about the importance of helping others, especially in cases where there’s no direct link to ourselves. Because really, we are all connected. The strongest communities thrive precisely because there’s a sense of communal kindheartedness. Now is a great time to think about ways that your family can help others out, both in one-off circumstances (such as a garage sale raising funds for charity) and in more long-term ways (can anyone in your family coach or assist in youth mentoring?). Whenever we get the chance to help others, it frequently seems like we’re getting help ourselves – in the form of a sense of accomplishment, understanding and increased self-worth. It’s striking how much thankfulness and grace can arise from assisting our friends and neighbors. Finally, we’re establishing new family traditions of our own. My past and the loss of my parents is a huge part of me, but in order for me to bring happiness into my own household, the present is where I need to be and the future should be what I aspire to. Anyone with a complicated family dynamic growing up realizes that the best way to move on from previous occurrences is to dictate present ones. Part of being an adult is controlling our own destinies. Rituals and traditions, no matter how casual or unconventional, are a part of establishing a sense of contentment. Think of what you can do with other family members that encourages discussion and connection: baking, working on a craft or hobby, playing a board game… every home is different, so pick what works best for yours. One thing to remember is that the more unplugged the activity is, the more you have to make a real effort to communicate and not be partially distracted. This often makes for richer, more meaningful memories. Basically, this fall our family is getting back to basics and reminding ourselves of what’s really important in our lives, and the lives of others. We’re lucky to have the opportunity to do so. If your own household could use a dose of joyfulness that feels natural, organic and not pasted on, take a step back and nurture yourselves. There’s no need to spend much money at all to do so – in fact, quality time is free and can be plentiful if you prioritize it. Mark your calendars with set times if you have to! Blessings will be sure to follow.

me et the

business highlight Maysaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Munchies Maysa got the inspiration to start a catering business from her friend Debbie, who was always asking her to make little munchies for parties, dinners and occasions. When more friends started to ask Maysa to cook Middle Eastern dishes for them, the idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maysaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Munchiesâ&#x20AC;? became a reality. What kinds of munchies will Maysa make? Think about succulent chicken or beef kebabs, with traditional or spicy hummus and pita. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that make an excellent appetizer for Thanksgiving, or for a big night of football? What about falafels, stuffed grape leaves, meat pies or baba ganoush (eggplant dip) for your holiday party? The best part is that Maysa uses fresh, organic (whenever possible) ingredients.

With the holidays around the corner, it seems like we could all use a little help in the kitchen, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to introduce you to Maysa Hussein, and her business, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maysaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Munchies.â&#x20AC;? Maysa started cooking when she was very young. The first things she learned how to cook were frozen chocolate popsicles and pound cake (basic staples first, right?) with her grandmother and mother. The story of great cooks and chefs always seem to begin with grandmothers and mothers and Maysaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story is no different. Her family came to San Diego from Lebanon in 1975, and like most Lebanese families, food is part of every occasion, be it happy or sad. There is the belief that food brings families together, and Maysaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family still eats dinner and breakfast together, every day.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year when cooking and dishwashing seems to take over our lives, and detract from the time we should be spending with our families. Maybe Maysa can help take some of the stress away by providing her catering services to you this holiday season. No order is too small or too big, says Maysa. With a range of dishes, vegetarian to meat lovers, appetizers to desserts, and everything in between, Maysa can help your holiday season be what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be â&#x20AC;&#x201C; quality time with family and friends, not spent in front of a stove or oven, or pulling your hair out over a stack of dishes. With the understanding that each family is different, and knowing well that all of us live on a budget, Maysa will cater your order the way you like it, each and every time, with a smile on her face, and without a dent in your wallet. For more information, a menu, list of prices, or to order, call Maysa at (760) 271-8492.
