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
$30,000 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 $35,000 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 22 at 7pm in the MPR.   
We meet the second Thursday of the month.  Be sure to sign up for our Email
Newsletter, check out our Facebook page: and mark your calendar for the
upcoming CSEF Dinner at Back to School Night.


Thank you!
