The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation is on the home stretch for its fundraising year, making great strides due to some very successful school jog-a-thons. Sage Canyon Elementary School, in particular, raised more money than ever with this year’s jog-a-thon, bringing in $91,972.
“We started the year with Carmel Del Mar having the highest family participation rate we’ve had in the past with an 81 percent participation rate,” said Susan Polizzotto, president of the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) of some of this year’s fundraising highlights. “But we are far from our goal of $1.9 million. We need at least $1.7 million to help the district keep the same level of STEAM+ specialists they had this year.”
