Diegueno Middle School Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA)

What do our memberships and donations fund?

Your memberships and donations support programs in TEE; Technology, Environment and Experiences.


Technology:  We provide funds that go towards purchasing and updating Chrome Books (laptops) and accessories (mice) for both 7th and 8th graders.  PTSA also supports the needs for instructive and educational software programs, equipment, and supplies.

Environment:  PTSA focuses on health and wellness for our Diegueno students including campus improvements (ex. shade structures, benches, air conditioning, etc.), student run environmental initiatives (ex. recycling programs), social and emotional programs (ex. internet security, anti-bullying, inclusion), and physical fitness (equipment & programs).

Experiences:  We provide funds for teachers and administrators to use creative options for our students to experience meaningful and educational experiences.  These include field trips, guest speakers, assemblies, dance, art, music, theater, multi media, languages and cultural experiences.  

Update from PTSA Co-Presidents

Hello Diegueño Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 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 Barnette have been working tirelessly 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

We Hope You Enjoy this Video!
