49ers and Furry Friends

On October 10, 2017, the San Francisco 49ers partnered with the Furry Friends Pet Assisted Therapy Services as part of their #49ersGiveBack Community Service Program. They came to Leland High School to spend time with students that are in our special needs program. Mr. Gabriel Welcher, Special Education Program Counselor has been the driving force in developing a working relationship with Furry Friends as they have been making visits to Leland for the last two years. He is also in the club advisor for the Bring Change to Mind Club on campus, which is designed to address the stigma associated with mental illnesses. The event was a huge success. 49ers players Dontae Johnson, Joshua Garnett, Bradley Pinion, Raheem Mostert, Garrett Celek, Jimmie Gilbert, Erik Magnuson, and Chanceller James came to the school to bring a smile to students in the Special Education Department. In addition to the 49ers, 8 volunteers from Furry Friends also came out to Leland with therapy dogs. When they weren’t personally interacting with the students, the 49ers played a variety of board games with the goal to help assist the special needs student by focusing on enhancing their basic social skills and communication. The 49ers Public Relations staff and Leland’s Bring Change To Mind Club, Charger Pals, The Charger Account and Yearbook collaborated together to make this event possible. Mainstream students also participated in the event, helping out the students with special needs. Everybody collaborated together to create an experience that the students will never forget.

SELAC Meetings

The School English Learner’s Advisory Council (SELAC) and the District English Learners Advisory Council (DELAC) are composed of teachers and parents whose main concerns are the welfare and education of students who are English learners (EL). The purpose of these organizations is to provide advice to the principal and staff regarding programs and services for English learners, and to provide information (both from the school and from the District office) to parents.

Attending SELAC and DELAC meetings is a great opportunity to become involved with your student’s education, and a great way to meet parents of other EL students at Leland and in San Jose Unified. You will learn more about the EL programs that are available, and your participation in the groups is a terrific venue in which to have your voice heard. Our first meeting will be held August 31 at 6:00pm before Back to School Night. The following SELAC meetings are held at 4:30 p.m. on the Leland campus, in Room C6.
