We're so glad you're here! Our mission to support and inspire an enriching environment that enhances EVERY student’s educational experience. We are honored to serve this community and hope you support us by becoming a member of the Del Mar Heights PTA.
Annual Giving Campaign: Are You IN?
August 27th - September 28th
INspire, INvolve, INvest
We now have 52% participation!
For those who gave, thank you! If you haven't, you might be asking: "Why should I participate now?" Great question! Three reasons:
1. Write one check to help cover all 50 PTA programs, and you'll be good to go for the rest of the year. Unlike other school PTAs that do smaller fundraisers all year long, we have one primary fundraiser to pay for it all.
2. You can get some amazing thank you gifts--exclusively during AGC! How about the Tile®, the world's best-selling Bluetooth tracker? Or perhaps the amazing Ember® smart mug, which keeps tea or coffee at your perfect temperature for about 2 hours! Or even better, two (2) guaranteed tickets to our Spring Gala, which sold out last year?
3. The biggest reason, however, is that you'll be supporting programs such as Heights Cares, a service-oriented group for students who organize beach cleanups, candy donations to U.S. service men and women, Boomerang lunches, and numerous other volunteer opportunities supporting local charities. With the support of the PTA, Heights Cares programming helps our children incorporate philanthropy and community service into their lives. In fact, the Heights Cares Towel & Sheet Drive starts tomorrow! See below for details!
Note: This year, the AGC ends before Harvest Fest. If you typically make a donation at Harvest Fest, kindly click the above button or download a donation form.
Limited Edition T-Shirts: Your limited-edition AGC T-shirts will be sent home in your child's backpack in mid-to-late October. Thanks for your patience!
Helen Woodward Towel & Sheet Drive
September 17th-21st, During Morning Drop-Off
Do a little closet clean-out for a good cause! Heights Cares, the school's student philanthropic group, is collecting clean towels and sheets for the Helen Woodward Animal Center during morning drop-off from September 17th-21st. Our kindergarten classes will be delivering the donations to the shelter during their Fall field trip.

Parent Breakfast Briefing
Wednesday, September 26th in the MUR
Grab a hot cup of joe and breakfast (catered by Broken Yolk), network with fellow parents, and get the inside scoop on what's coming up at Del Mar Heights. You'll get a full update on happenings at the Heights from Principal Soileau and PTA President Mireille Barnard. We'll also approve the 2018-2019 PTA Budget. Swing by the MUR after drop-off and get your fill of coffee, news and networking-all before 9 o'clock in the morning!
Walk to School Day
Wednesday, October 10th
Join us in improving our health and air quality by walking to school on this day and many more this year. Walking to school is great exercise! Physical activity helps control weight, builds lean muscle, reduces fat, and promotes strong bones, muscle and joint development. In addition, walking to school protects the air around our campus and the environment. Idling for even one minute produces as much carbon monoxide as smoking 3 packs of cigarettes!
