For the complete TED talk by Margaret Heffernan…

Language and Communications:

What do Dolphins Talk About?

Denise Herzing has been studying the same pod of wild dolphins for 30 years. Every summer, she and the dolphins are reunited. But this summer, things are a little different—this summer, with help from Thad Starner (one of the inventors of Google Glass), she’s testing a new device that could change the conversation for good.

Little Known Punctuation Marks and How to Use Them:

You know I love quotes, but how about these to spice up your language and communications?

Supporting the Wonderful World of Education:

“I’m a School Principal.  What is YOUR Super Power?

School Administrators work hard to ensure students receive a quality education with one end game in mind….a happy, productive life for each student. They inspire every member of their school communities to embrace this vision through action. In observance of the importance of educational leadership at the school, school district and county levels, October 12-16 is designated as “Week of the School Administrator.” Be sure to celebrate your school administrators changing lives behind the scenes every day!

Speaking of “Cool” Principals Check This One Out…

Mission Fed Community Moments continue

Our support of the San Diego community never slows down. In this edition of Mission Possible, we’re highlighting the city’s largest outdoor art festival, Mission Federal ArtWalk. And, take a peek at a variety of other community events, including our Eastlake Branch Grand Opening in its new location, a volunteer visit to Helen Woodward Animal Center and San Diego Padres infielder Cory Spangenberg’s visit to the winning Read With A Pro classroom. Plus, enjoy an update on the soon-to-open Mission Fed JA Finance Park.

Achieving maximum results

We were thrilled that we were able to reach our goal during the Miracle Month of May in support of Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, and we had a wonderful time visiting a variety of schools with our Max Out My Class campaign with MAX 105.7 FM. To find out where Mission Fed will be in the community, check out our Events Calendar.


Your Success

Thanks this week go to all of you who deeply invest in the practice and principles of social capital optimization, the noble warriors in the fight for education & social justice, the civic activists championing the causes of emerging populations and disenfranchised communities, and hard working parents tirelessly working to make Mission’s possible!

 Change the Conversation for Good

YOU are Beyond Measure!



Every totalitarian regime is frightened of the Artist. 

It is the vocation of the prophet to keep alive the ministry of the imagination,

to keep on conjuring and proposing alternative futures

to the single one the King wants to urge as the only thinkable one.
–Walter Breuggemann
