Our Exceptional Partnership with the Eureka Schools Foundation (ESF) Continues
Our District continues to benefit from the unique and tremendous support of ESF. We cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support for ESF. Our students receive continued enrichment opportunities while offering our exemplary Summer Institute sessions for our professional staff. As a result of your continued generosity, the District will receive $396,000 in donations for the 2019-20 school year for which we are extremely grateful. We are extremely proud of our partnership with ESF for 26 years which has provided our District with over $7 million dollars to support our enrichment programs for your children and professional development opportunities for our staff. ESF will continue to support our students with offerings for before and after school through World Language courses. Due to the tremendous success of these programs during the school year, we will continue to pursue expansion of them to meet the needs of our students. Enrichment learning includes student access to our school libraries, computer/technology education, vocal and instrumental music, world language enrichment, and junior high school athletics. These important components of your child’s education are not fully funded with your state or property tax dollars as Eureka is low funded due to our unique demographics. Without private funding from ESF, our District’s ability to continue to offer these valuable programs would not be possible. I encourage you to visit ESF’s website, www.eurekaschoolsfoundation.org, for detailed information on how ESF’s donated funds are allocated and spent each school year and to learn more about ESF’s annual fundraising events. I am hopeful that your family will consider making a donation this school year to support the exceptional programs for our students.
We wish you all the best for continuing enjoyment in Summer 2019 and look forward to seeing you again as our school year begins. It is truly an honor and pleasure to serve you as we meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Your input, involvement and active participation are truly the keys to our success in our unique and wonderful Eureka Union School District “family” and community!
