News from your 2023-2024 PTSA President

Hello New & Returning Diegeuño Families! 

I'm excited for this upcoming year and I hope to meet many of you at our upcoming social events. As the outgoing PTA President at OPE, I had a lot of fun helping to connect our staff & families and I hope to continue the fun as a new DNO parent and your PTSA President. 


This year is all about joy, purpose, community & CONNECTION for the kids. THANK YOU for the opportunity.

This year we have a big fundraising goal as we are committed to bringing back all MINI-GRANTS FOR TEACHERS which will DIRECTLY IMPACT your child's academic experience. We will also give every teacher a CLASSROOM SUPPLIES allotment.


We’ve got some FUN member incentives like a new DNO Directory, so you know more about the families your kids are hanging out with, raffles for gifts cards, VIP seating & parking at 8th Grade Promotion, and even VIP bike parking!

I hope you'll join the PTSA and help us reach our Academic & Community Goals – joining requires ZERO TIME COMMITMENT and there’s a tax-deductible donation level for every budget.


Now that you have a Middle Schooler at SDUHSD, there are NO EEF DONATIONS so you can re-route those funds to us (please!), along with your CORPORATE MATCH, if your employer participates. Ask me if you have questions about this. We can work directly with your employer to facilitate if needed.  

My email is: stacilaw at gmail dot com - reach out anytime!
