Dear Kumeyaay Families,

I hope this message finds you well. It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of this school year! Through this challenging year, we have much to be thankful for and appreciate.

Thank you for supporting our Book Fair this week. This was great fun for our students!

I am hopeful you find time for some rest and relaxation over our four day weekend.

Take care,

Angela Zarzosa, Kumeyaay Elementary, Principal

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.
