Did you know that if your child is out of school for three or more days, you can request an independent study contract? If an independent study contract is completed, your child receives attendance credit. For more information, you can contact Shelley Acosta (619-656-2030)
The annual YMCA fundraiser has begun!
The Y supports families throughout the county. The Y relies on charitable giving to create scholarships for students and families in need! The Y is pivotal in our community in supporting the needs in various ways of our students and families.
That is why I choose to support the Y not only with my time but in my charitable giving. Please join me today in making a gift to the South Bay YMCA to support children, families and seniors.
You can make a donation to our Olympic View fundraising page in just seconds by CLICKING HERE
Every gift makes an incredible difference! Please feel free to share with any of your friends or family as well. Our goal is $1,500.00 and our fundraiser ends March 14.
Thank you for not only supporting my efforts to raise funds for the Y, but also giving back to your community! I appreciate you!”

CLICK HERE to visit the Eastlake Educational Foundation Website
You don’t need to look far to understand why Eastlake is a special place – it’s the people! Even though we have grown, we are still a small town at heart because of the support and care shown to each other, and the value we place on public education.
A community-wide effort The Come Together Community Campaign is underway to raise money for neighborhood public schools to fund technology hardware (computers, devices) educational software (to teach core subjects and advance learning through online platforms), fund professional development (so teachers can advance their skills) and provide STEAM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Additionally, your support helps continue new programs like: Eastlake+, A Positive Podcast, Scholarships, Eastlake Alumni & Friends, Teacher Mini Grants, student internships, and numerous school programs.
Will you help us support our public schools by making a donation in any amount? We will ensure that 100% of your donation goes directly to our neighborhood public schools and is fully tax deductible. Your donation will make a meaningful impact for programs that help all our kids.
We know there are many worthy causes to support this year, and we hope that you will consider including the Come Together Community Campaign in your giving plans. Take a look at our most recent annual report for more information.
