Vallejo school gets face-lift on MLK day – Times Herald

By Irma Widjojo

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, more than 160 people rolled up their sleeves to take part in a day of community service in Vallejo Monday.

For the seventh year, Rebuilding Together Solano County and Kaiser Permanente joined efforts for a MLK Workday. This year, the organizations rehabilitated and revamped two Solano County schools, including Steffan Manor Elementary School.

The school has been recommended by the school district, Rebuilding Together Executive Director Elizabeth Hoffman said.

“Eighty five percent of the students here are at or below the poverty level,” Hoffman said.

She added that 90 percent of the students at Fairfield’s David Weird K-8 Preparatory Academy, the other workday site, are at or below poverty level.
