Lobo Unity Club

lobounity1.jpgLobo Unity was created in the spring of 2008 by staff and students.  Its' mission is to strengthen relationships between the school’s staff, students, families, and community members.   

To build community connections, a free, family oriented Lobo CommUnity Fair was started in 2008.  The Fair has grown from 50 attendees in 2008 to 1500 attendees in 2011. Over sixty booths hosted by various city government branches, private businesses, non-profit agencies, Elsie Allen High School clubs, and Southwest Santa Rosa feeder schools participated in providing informational material, food, games, and live entertainment.   

Tamale Togetherness, an event created in 2009, gathered a dozen students and their mothers. They taught paying community members how to make tamales from scratch.  Fifty participants left with their very own dozen of homemade tamales, recipe cards, and a full stomach!  Students and their parent tamale teachers shared a special moment working together and felt extreme pride in sharing their Latino tradition.

In addition to inviting the community to our campus, students go out into the community and volunteer.  Over the past two years, more than 200 students have volunteered at various community events such as the Santa Rosa Neighborhood Summit, Gran Fondo Bike Race, Fiesta de Independencia, Roseland Holiday Celebration, Youth Summit, Ecology Corp Creek Restoration, Cal Serves Tutoring, and the MLK Day just to name a few.  Community members are recognizing Lobo Unity students’ commitment to creating positive relationships in and around the community.

Lobo Unity Club meets Wednesdays at lunch in Ms. Lisa DeCarbo’s classroom, R-23.
