What your Donation Supports

The Pacific School Foundation fund contributes directly to support the Life Lab, Music, Theater and Visual Arts, Classroom Grants and the Library programs at Pacific Elementary School, a public school in Davenport California.

Life Lab

This school garden program teaches students Life Science and raises food used in the cafeteria. PSF pays for the entire Life Lab program.

Classroom Grants and Teacher Appreciation gifts

When teachers need supplies to support the curriculum, they can ask PSF for help. We raise money to give gifts to teachers and staff at the end of the year.

Music, Theater, and Visual Arts

PSF pays for all of the costs to perform a school play every other year, and almost all of the costs of Orff music, instrumental music, and visual arts instruction. Pacific is one of few elementary schools in the county still maintaining an instrumental music program.

The School Library

Mondays are Library days at school. Students are able to checkout books to read at school to enjoy during choice reading time. PSF pays for all staff, books, supplies and library computer system management for the school library.

For the 2022-2023 school year, we need $258 per student to pay for school programs that are not fully funded by the state and federal government. This is $30 per month, or approx. $1 per day, for the school year. We know that every family is unable to fundraise this amount, but hope that all can contribute in some way towards fundraising for the school.

From our August 2022 Parent Meeting, an overview of fundraising needs to support the school and some possible events for 2022-2023.
