Welcome back Cougars!   The California School Education Foundation (CSEF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing technology, arts and science programs to the students of California Elementary School.

Last year, through Community Donations and Special Events, we raised over $27,000 to fund supplies and instructor for our technology lab, as well as our Show Choir, School Musical and Band programs.

This year, our goal is to raise $30,000 to:  Continue to fund and staff our computer technology lab; support arts education through our Show Choir, Musical and Band; put interactive whiteboards in our classrooms; and give back to the community through Show Choir performances.

We would like to personally invite you to consider getting involved with CSEF.  By volunteering your time, making a donation or simply attending one of our events, you help make a tremendous difference.

Please join us for our first CSEF meeting on September 16 at 7pm.  Be sure to sign up for our Email Newsletter and mark your calendar for these upcoming CSEF events:

    Cougar Cup Golf Tournament 10/26 and the Halloween Hoot 10/30

Thank you!

Karen Ray, CSEF President                              Kirsten McNiff, Vice President
