5th Grade Science Camp


Help our 5th graders go to camp! Outdoor Education is a four-day, offsite field trip that is planned each year for 5th graders. The camp teaches a hands-on science curriculum and social skills, and provides a taste of the responsibility and independence students will need when they advance to middle school.
Outdoor education is a fun, enriching experience that kids look forward to, and that they will never forget!

SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS ARE UP:


TK, K & 1st are asking for cash donations for supplies.

2nd and 3rd supplies are specific to each classroom, so it's best to wait until you know your child's teacher before ordering.

  MDE Power of Giving




Calling all Super Heroes!

We at Mount Diablo Elementary (MDE) rely on the POWER OF GIVING to ensure that our students achieve all levels of success!

  • Level 1: Education

  • Level 2: Technology

  • Level 3: Enrichment

If 100% of parents give, Parent Faculty Club (PFC) will be able to support our teachers, provide classrooms with new technology, and sponsor enrichment events.

To exercise your Super Power, click the Donate button below. Email the MDE Education Fund Treasurer with any questions.

CLICK BELOW TO SUPPORT OUR PFC!
Our goal is to have 100% of families contribute!  So, we are going to wrap up the Ed Fund drive with a 5-day campaign this week August 25th thru August 30th.  Each day we will provide a compelling reason to participate and an update on our fundraising goal.  Plus, everyone that participates has a chance to win a yearbook (Monday through Thursday) or a pair of tickets to the auction fundraiser (Friday giveaway).   

   What is the PFC?


The Mt. Diablo Elementary PFC is a non-profit volunteer organization that helps to fund programs and provide supplies that the school could not otherwise afford. 
The money raised by the PFC supports our computer program, provides instructional aides, yard duty support, curriculum enhancement, parent educator programs, classroom supplies, new technology, playground equipment, enrichment and reading assistance programs, and much more.

PFC Mission

To support high academic standards and a positive learning environment at our school through educational and social programs, parent outreach, and community involvement.

PFC Vision

To make every child's potential a reality by:
  • Helping to provide a strong educational and learning environment for students 
  • Maintaining a strong membership and good relationships with teachers and each other through effective communication, planning, documentation, and training
  • Having visibility and a voice in the community
  • Maintaining a healthy bank account through planning and the financial/strategic flexibility to adjust to outside factors

  How Do I Get Involved?



If you or someone you know might want to learn more about the PFC or if you might be interested in any of the open positions, please contact Alli Battistelli or Drina Rubiales at MDEPFC@gmail.com. Thanks for your support and we look forward to working with you! 

The PFC meets once a month at 7:00 PM, typically on the third Tuesday of each month. See the school calendar for actual dates. FREE babysitting is provided — there is no need to sign up in advance.
