In 1994 I was privileged to have a small hand in the design and planning
of a new junior high school for the urban city of Santa Ana,
California. Despite opposition from a vocal minority and a series of
delays, that school facility has now become a physical reality. This
fall 1300 young teenagers will begin classes on this modern campus that
is wired for the internet, equipped to teach both music and technology,
provided with modern science classrooms, and so on.
But, (isn't there always a "but") it is likely to open its doors with a
nearly empty library.
If you have any old textbooks, unused reference materials or other
books, would you please consider donating them to Mendez Fundamental
Intermediate School? Books which may be too advanced for grades 6
through 8 may still be useful as reference books for teachers.
If you have any questions, or if you have books to donate, please send
me private email
