T.A.C.K.L.E, which stands for "Technology and Cultural Kumeyaay Literacy Education at San Pasqual", is an innovation of La Clase Mágica. It serves an average of 20 children from 1st through 5th grade that live in the San Pasqual Indian Reservation. The San Pasqual Band of Mission (Kumeyaay) Indians is located about 40 miles north of San Diego and 12 miles from Escondido, adjoining the community of Valley Center and other residents along Highway S-6. This site opened in Spring 2002, and the program participates in the language-revitalization efforts at San Pascual. TACKLE is currently our Language and Culture Hub and the children are sharing and writing with an electronic Blog keeper, Shullua Shulluk (“thunder and lightning”), a Kumeyaay innovation of El Maga.
T.A.C.K.L.E., the after school program, is on
Wednesdays from 3-4:30 pm.
Little Tackle, the preschool program, is on
Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11am.

"I am a tribal member from San Pasqual and I operate TACKLE within the San Pasqual Education Department. I love to snowboard, I am a bird singing and dancer, and I love teaching our youth our Kumeyaay Language! I appreciate the LCM Program and how it helps youth gain a positive outlook on school and life."
