The Filipino-American Cultural Organization (FACO), through the generosity of its Hiyas Awardees composed of outstanding men and women in North San Diego County in their field of study, adopted a room in the University of the Philippines Integrated School (UPIS) . Since the school is moving to its new location (inside the campus of the University of the Philippines) and with limited budget, there is a need for donation for various fixtures of its classrooms/offices, thus the ADOPT-A-ROOM PROJECT of the UPIS was conceptualized. To adopt a room is to provide the various equipment and furnishings needed for the certain classroom. FACO adopted a room by sponsoring the CA FILIPINO ROOM 1 (Grades 3-6) Room 320. As an acknowledgement, the room was labeled after FACO thru an 8″ x 11″ bronze plate installed near the door.
There are about 10 classes held in the room every week and each class has 35 students. The room was furnished with 46″ LED TV, magnetic whiteboard, bulletin cork board, teacher table, 35 pcs. of monobloc chairs, teacher’s table and refurbished cabinets. It will also be furnished with computer desktop laptop and display cabinet bookshelf.
