Welcome to the Moreland School District

Payne Elementary School officially opened their new interactive community garden with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included student performances and the planting of the first vine.

The garden was made possible with the help of Payne parent Dean Wallace, Landscape Architect at Landsystems Landscapes, staff from Moreland’s Maintenance and Operations department, and a donation from the Moreland Educational Foundation. It will serve as a perfect path for classrooms to continue Project Based Learning and get more students involved in the hands-on process of growing food and learning about healthy eating and plant systems.

Moreland Celebrates International Walk to School Day

Thanks to the Moreland families that participated in International Walk to School Day on October 8th.  Students from Anderson, Baker, Country Lane, EDS, Latimer and Payne joined children around the world to celebrate the benefits of walking and bicycling.

To celebrate Moreland’s partnership with the City of San Jose and the Walk n’ Roll San Jose program, a reception was held at EDS that morning.  Special guests included San Jose Police Chief Larry Esquivel, District 1 Councilmember Pete Constant, District 1 Candidate for Councilmember Charles "Chappie" Jones and San Jose Director of Transportation Hans Larsen.

Pete Constant presented EDS Principal Sherri Vazquez with a grant check for $500 for their continued participation in the Walk n’ Roll Program.  The funds will be used for additional safety improvements around the school.
