Presidents Update


Dear Diegueno Families,


The 2020 year is upon us and I know no one was expecting that this year would be what it is! Your PTSA has been working with the Administration for several weeks to come up with a plan that supports the parents, teachers, and most importantly, our students. We want you to feel like your voice is being heard and we hope to be a conduit for questions and concerns that arise during the school year during this unprecedented time.


The Diegueno administration, teachers, and Principal Dolnik have been working tirelessly this summer trying to put together different models of learning for our students this year. From hybrid, to kids on campus to finally, the reality- distance learning for at least the first quarter.  We are all in this together and we are going to try our hardest to help make this year as productive and as much fun as it can be!


Last year our goal was to create a “Tech Drive” to enable our students to have one on one Chromebooks but since this is now falling on the shoulders of the district, our main focus is to support our school community in any way that we can. We need and value your communication. We will be putting together parent support informational events (virtually) as well as working on other ideas to continue our community involvement.


Your PTSA for this year is

Julie Silva - Co-President

Calli Kelsay - Co-President

Dusty Lederle - Communications

Katie LoPilato- Fundraising

David Kaplan - Treasurer

Andrea Lyons/Lorelei Chandler - Hospitality

Rachel Sweigart -Secretary

Miracle Martello- Historian

Chad Coogan - Auditor

Wyatt Barrett - Parliamentarian


We look forward to this year at Diegueno and lets all remember to be kind and supportive of each other as we navigate this time together!!
