South City Schools Receive Wells Fargo Grants

Three South San Francisco schools recently received $1,000 each from Wells Fargo.

This week, 3 South City schools received $1,000 checks from Wells Fargo. The funds were just a small part of the $82,000 of grants given to 82 Peninsula schools at a breakfast in Foster City Tuesday.

Mangers of local Wells Fargo branches picked which schools in their towns would received the grants, each in $1,000 increments.

“In addition to the countless hours that our team members spend volunteering in local schools, we are proud to provide funding directly to schools throughout the Peninsula,” said President of Wells Fargo’s Peninsula market Wendy Haller. “By hosting this breakfast event and providing funding to schools, we want to personally say ‘thank you’ to the educators in our communities and provide resources to help purchase school supplies or other pressing needs.”

Since 2009, Wells Fargo has given more than $16 million to educational nonprofits and schools in the Bay Area.

The following South City schools received grants:

Martin Elementary

Baden High School

Sunshine Gardens Elementary

Alta Loma Middle School

But seriously, it's not OK. I'm going to give you the same lecture I used to give teachers and PTA people who have typos in their communications. If kids see professional journalists making stupid mistakes, they're less likely to proof their work and to write drafts. Please set a better example. Kids, when you get out in the real world, it WILL matter if you can spell, use proper grammar and speak well. Maybe it doesn't matter if you don't aspire to more than a minimum wage job, but for anything else ... IT MATTERS! I've had two college graduates cry when I turned them down for a job based solely on the typos on their resumes.

Chris, it's not that they make mistakes, it's that they don't care enough to proofread it. I make lots of mistakes at work, but they don't see the light of day because I double-check myself.

Congratulations to our four schools that received the Wells Fargo grants. In a cash-strapped district, these kinds of community-business partnerships and relationships are essential to our schools' well-being. It's wonderful to see that local businesses are investing in their community since we all have a stake in our children's future.
