On behalf of the San Pasqual School Foundation I would like to welcome you back to school for the 2012-2013 school year!
I would like to begin with a little background on the Foundation. Our little school in the valley is a one school District with very little funding. As you know our state’s education funding is stretched far too thin. Thanks to thoughtful planning from our school board, the school was able to bring back all of the teachers that were pink slipped last year. However our little school continues to have dire budget issues and could face future budget cuts if the Education Initiatives don’t pass in November.
In an effort to help the school, the San Pasqual Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years to support our school, Library, Physical Education and Music programs. Every penny of every dollar raised by the Foundation goes directly back to the school in the form of Teachers salaries. Monies are raised through various donations and thru various Foundation fundraising events -
Annual Walk-a-Thon 9/21/12
Golftoberfest Golf Tourney 10/19/12
Casino Night 2/23/12
Family Trivia Night 1/17/12
Fiesta On the Fairway Golf Tourney 4/26/12
(all dates Tentative)
We hope that these proven events will help us to achieve our goal of raising $110,000.00 this year! You, the friends, and families of the school, are our greatest resource. If all 440 school families, contributed just 250.00 we would easily achieve our goal! While we hope you can participate in our events, you can also accomplish this by becoming a”Friend of the Foundation”. Friend memberships gain you access to multiple Foundation events, and sponsorship name recognition for your family or business.
There are many ways to help us help the school throughout the year. We are always looking for new Foundation board members and volunteers for events. Please contact any one of us for more information. We welcome any suggestions you may have for fundraising events or opportunities, and we appreciate any auction items, event sponsors and corporate sponsor.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or ideas. I look forward to working with the community this year and may you all have a happy and successful school year!
