Teacher Appreciation Week

Because of your donations throughout the year, The Foundation was able to celebrate our teachers & staff. Throughout the week we treated them to donuts, bagels, coffee, treats, flowers, a stocked fridge of drinks, and a taco cart.

Help Us Reach Our Goal!

The Kumeyaay Foundation works year-round at raising donations to fund our Music, Physical Education, and Fine Artists programs. Each school year, we start fresh at raising the necessary funds. Due to COVID-19, it has been nearly impossible to fundraise since March 2020, meaning that some of our fundraising events did not happen. We are in good shape to support the school for this coming fall, but we urge you, if you are able, to support our Foundation so that we can ensure our ongoing support for the coming academic year and beyond.
