Update from PTSA Co-Presidents

Hello Diegueño Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We look forward to making the most of this academic year, even though Covid precautions are still a pressing need. Despite this, we want to do what we can to build back our community that was impacted by distance learning, stay-at-home orders, masks, and quarantines. This difficult time has made us realize how important our community is with regard to connecting with neighbors, friends, students, teachers and everyone we see on a daily basis. We welcome your ideas with regard to building up our community which we like to call our "Cougar Community".

The Diegueño administration, our teachers, and Principal Dolnik have been working tirelessly this summer to make this upcoming school year a great learning environment and for ways to stay connected.

We look forward to a great year together! Thanks so much.

Jen D and Jen K

Co-Presidents, PTSA
