The Ateneo Center for Educational Development (ACED) has been established
1997 to provide high impact and systematic programs of interventions to
uplift the quality of public education in the country.  Since then, ACED
been actively involved in teacher training for public schools as well as
helping selected public elementary schools initiate and sustain
development programs through engaging the local community stakeholders as

Two of these elementary schools belong to the District 2 of Quezon City,
particularly in the Payatas dumpsite area.  Payatas B Annex Elementary
with about 1,000 students and only 6 classrooms, is located within the GK
Eagle Village in Payatas 13.  Lupang Pangako Elementary School, with about
4,000 students and only 17 classrooms, is located about 100 meters away
the dumpsite. ACED's engagement with these two schools has been very
active and
the local community has been very supportive of this effort.  Part of the
commitment of ACED is to bring together various stakeholders to support
schools in activities and programs that will help them become better in
of academic achievement as well as management.

It is in this regard that ACED is inviting you, your faculty and your
staff to
participate in the National Schools Maintenance Week, otherwise known as
Brigada Eskwela for these two schools on Friday, May 20, 2005, from 8:00
am to
3:00 pm. This activity aims to bring together the community, the public
schools, as well as other stakeholders in public education to clean up as
as do minor repairs in preparation for the opening of classes.

Below is the list of materials that the schools need.  Please take note
these are just OPTIONAL DONATIONS.  The most important resource that you
contribute is VOLUNTEER time and a whole lot of community SPIRIT.  It is
requested however, that participants bring their own lunch and drinking
as well as painting and cleaning materials (i.e., roller brush, walis
tambo, cleaning rags, trash bags, etc.) since the schools do not have
cleaning materials.  You may also bring old instructional materials,
books, and
educational posters that you wish to donate to the school. Transportation
(jeepneys) will be provided by ACED.

If you have any questions, or if you are interested to join us, please do
hesitate to call us at (TeleFax) 426-5693 or 426-6001 loc 4027 and look
for Mr.
Al Pagulayan, the Center's Program Officer or e-mail at
apagulayan at ateneo.edu

We thank you for your support in this activity.
