Elba Alonso de Ortega

I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Alhambra Educational Foundation accepting students for summer programs

Registration is now open for the Alhambra Educational Foundation's (AEF) K-12 summer programs. Alhambra Unified School District's official fundraising partner will host a six-week Monday-Thursday summer program for both elementary and high school students, which will include arts, music, writing, science, math, and college preparatory courses. 

"AEF’s K-8 Summer Academy classes focus on preparing students academically for the coming school year in a fun, stress-free environment," said a statement from the nonprofit organization. "AEF’s Summer High School continues to be one of the more popular summer schools in the San Gabriel Valley. AEF offers courses that will help students ‘get-ahead’ with the credits and course work needed for graduation and college admission."

More than 800 students enrolled in the 2013 K-8 program, a 50 percent increase from 2012, according to AEF Executive Director Sheryl MacPhee. Offerings for elementary students will be held at Ynez Elementary School and Mark Keppel High School in 2014, and include marine biology, film and literature, theater, journalism, and music.

AEF's summer high school program includes high school preparatory classes in math and writing, speech and debate, and English immersion. Students can also enroll in high school biology, chemistry, world history, U.S. history, and math classes.  More than 1,000 students from 22 local schools attended the Western Association of Schools and Colleges-accredited high school program in 2013.

Parents and students can register for the summer programs, which run from June 9 through July 17, at the AEF office at 1515 W. Mission Rd. Registration will close the week of June 9. Partial scholarships are available for K-8 applicants. More information about available courses and tuition fees are available for download from the AEF website

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!
