Kumeyaay Elementary School Foundation

The Foundation at Kumeyaay is a 501(c)3 non-profit fundraising organization which was created to raise money for needed educational programs at Kumeyaay that are not funded by the school district. We work with the school, parents, the local community, and small and large businesses to support Kumeyaay Elementary.

What we do

The Foundation is solely responsible for providing funding so that Kumeyaay students receive alternate weekly instruction in science lab and a music class. The Foundation also funds the Fine Artists Program, where our children learn about famous artists and experiment with fine-art techniques.

What we have done

In 2004/2005, we helped to complete the turfing of the sports field. That same year, we also purchased approximately $40,000 in technology items, including state-of-the-art document cameras/projectors and portable laptop computers for the upper grade classrooms. In the 2007/2008 school year, the Foundation also funded a major expansion of Kumeyaay's Guided Reading Book Resouces. 2009/2010 the Foundation was able to purchase two Promethian White Boards so the staff at Kumeyaay would have technology at their fingertips to work with our students. At Spring Fling 2013, neary $38,000 was raised, all of which goes to support educational programs at Kumeyaay, including science, art, music, technology, and more!
