We are raising money to fund playground covers. As it stands, there is no area of the playground that offers shade and it has become more than uncomfortable for the young students - it can pose a health hazard.

We need $30,000 for the first installment of the covers. That's only $1,100 per classroom!

To raise this money, we are doing a school wide competition amongst classrooms. Students and teachers have the chance to win a variety of prizes.

You can help by donating and sharing this link on Facebook (Remember to tag @Jonas Salk Elementary School to help your teacher/student WIN)

The Jonas Salk Elementary School is opening a new Preschool starting September 2015.

We partnered with Champions who already provides our before and after school program and we are excited about this new preschool program. Champions Early Foundations ® Preschool program introduces language, math, science and social skills in a logical, appropriate sequence that encourages learning one step at a time for children ages 3-5 years.
