The Veterans of Foreign Wars traces its roots back to 1899, when veterans of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection created local support organizations to secure rights and benefits for service to their country. As might be expected, many of those veterans arrived home wounded or sick.

In 1932, during the Great Depression, more than 100 members of the Coronado community signed a petition to be granted their own chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Coronado Post 2422.

Those founding members included pilots stationed at Rockwell Field on North Island (a former US Army Air Corps field), sailors off the four-stack destroyers, and even veterans of the Glenn Curtiss School of Aviation. more >>Getting To Know The Coronado Chapter Of The VFW Auxiliary

During the May 18 Coronado Unified School Board Meeting, two separate reports were presented regarding the 4x4 bell schedule; a topic that is of high interest throughout the District and the community alike. 

First would be the ​​Coronado High School Bell Schedule Board Report, which was presented by Dr. Megan Battle. The report started off with a brief history of the bell schedule from 2018 to the present. Then a few key points as to why a change in bell schedule was even considered were presented, including the changing landscape in college admissions, more student flexibility, students seeking external classes in order to enhance transcripts for prestigious universities, adding dual enrollment opportunities, and more. 

Dr. Battle explained that changes were coming from the UC/CSU level, and the new bell schedule was ideally meant to accommodate those changes. These changes included more >>CHS Bell Schedule Report And 4x4 Committee Present Findings

To be the best, you have to beat the best. At least, that’s how the saying goes. And that saying would be tested this past Tuesday when the Coronado High School girls lacrosse team traveled north up the five to take on Torrey Pines High School.

The two teams already have a bit of history this season, as on March 20, the Islanders came into Torrey Pines and beat the number one team in the county by the final of 8-7.

Since then, some things have changed a bit as the Islander’s torrent start to the season slowed down just a touch as they went 8-4 in conference play, while Torrey would go 11-2 more >>Coronado Islander Girls Lacrosse Falls In CIF Semis To Torrey Pines
