Principal Dolnik & PTSA are working together to address the technology needs of our students. 

  1. Main funds are for Chromebooks, carts for Chromebooks, speech recognition headsets and accessories.

  2. Diegueno needs 300 additional Chromebooks to establish a one to one student ratio.  WE also need 9 carts and 180 headsets.  Total cost of $91,500.

  3. Also supports ongoing repairs, upgrades and replacement for existing technology.


We rely on your generous contributions to achieve this goal for students and teachers at Diegueno.

Don’t forget to consider asking your employer to match your donation.

Presidents Update

Dear Diegueno Families,


Spring is upon us and as we come to the final quarter of this school year, I wanted to report what your PTSA has been doing throughout the year.  By collaborating with the other middle schools in our district, we were able to pool our funds and offer parent and student events in our North and South parts of the district.  Topics covered included social media use and substance abuse.  These events were very well attended.  In fact, three of the four sold out.  Our last two sold-out events with the authors of Grown and Flown had to be canceled due to the Coronavirus and the concern for everyone’s health and safety.  We hope they can be rescheduled in the near future.


We have completed the funding of all staff grants.  Much of the funding went to English journals for all students, picnic tables throughout the campus for student use in and out of the classroom, guest speakers, school laminating machine, digital media video cameras and so much more.  We thank all the parents who joined us in supporting the enhanced needs of our staff and students.  We couldn’t provide this support without you.


We just participated in the open house welcoming families for the 20-21 school year.  This coming school year will bring a newly launched capital campaign by PTSA and Principal Dolnik.  We are working towards bringing our Chromebook inventory to a one to one ratio on campus.  We currently have about 600 Chromebooks that have been supplied through district funds, school site funds and PTSA donations over the past several years.  These three funds will continue to support this drive.  However, there will be an advanced focus to complete the purchase of these additional 300 computers and necessary carts.  If your student is returning next year, please consider a donation to our Technology Fund Drive.  You can visit our PTSA website at for more information.


As the school year winds down, we will be supporting promotion ceremonies for our eighth-grade families.  We are actively looking for interested parents who would like to serve on our Diegueno PTSA board for next year.  We still have a couple of positions open if you would like more information.  It has been my pleasure to serve as Diegueno PTSA President for my third and final year.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
