Technology Pledge Drive

February 27, 2013

Dear Solana Santa Fe Families:

The “Four C’s”… Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical thinking. Those are the goals behind our technology initiatives at the school. Let’s equip our children now so they can lead us into the future. To stay on the forefront of technological advances in education, Solana Santa Fe needs your help.


The Solana Beach Foundation for Learning


The PTO drive and the technology drive are the two annual fundraising efforts at our school. PTO funds support critical programs such as art, music, science and PE while the technology drive uses donations to offset the cost of technology in education such as: purchasing and supporting classroom computers and mobile devices; updating our state of the art computer lab; technical support across the campus and staff development.

With generous donations from last year, we successfully integrated iPads into all 4th, 5th and 6th grade classrooms and supplied the 3rd grade with iPod Touches. IPads are also available for use at lower grades and in the media center. The current goal is to expand the use of iPads to all students in 2nd and 3rd grades so they will also be exposed to an e-learning environment. We also have recurring technology needs such as upgrading software, replacing and repairing desktop computers, and maintaining projector equipment which require your financial support.

We are asking each family to donate at least $250 to support these efforts.

If you are unable to give at the requested level, please give at any level. We are striving for 100% participation. Every child at Solana Santa Fe will benefit from having access to advanced technology in a learning environment and your generosity will make a difference at our wonderful school.

AND you may be the lucky winner this year! We will have another opportunity drawing for a new iPad!!

  • A family who donates $1-249 will receive 1 ticket.
  • A family who donates $250-999 will receive 2 tickets.
  • A family who donates $1000 or more will receive 3 tickets.
  • AND any family who donates before March 11th will receive an EXTRA ticket just for being quick.

The drawing will take place during Spring Fling/Open House. Good luck!

To donate, please complete and return the enclosed donation form using the attached envelope or donate online by going to the following URL: The donations you make through the Solana Beach Foundation for Learning are used only by Solana Santa Fe and are tax deductible.

THANK YOU for your continued support!
