Join The Revolution

We fill the gap & fund programs outside of the PTA guidelines

Our students need more than public funding can provide. We are Pacific Rim’s non-profit foundation made up of parent volunteers who raise money and offer support for educational programs and special projects at our school. We work closely with school leadership to fuel academic, enrichment, and technology initiatives.

In the 2014-15 school year, we spent $102,378 on programs. Check out our “Programs” tab for a sample. Adding these valuable programs is one of many elements that make Pacific Rim Elementary one of the top five ranked elementary schools in San Diego County (over 500 schools). These programs help our students gain a well-rounded education, and foster a love of learning.

The Jogathon is our biggest and only fundraiser. It is a festive day, a day for community and school spirit. It’s the perfect time to reach out to friends, relatives, and neighbors for support. This year we are lacing up our sneakers on Nov. 6 for the 2015 Jogathon. We can’t wait to see you there!

Ninety-three percent of every dollar we raise goes directly to programs and projects at Pac Rim. If you would like more information about our budget or financials, please feel free to contact our treasurer at treasurer@Friendsof PacificRim.
