Project SEEK-Fall Donation Drive

Every year, Project SEEK (Seeking Excellence for our Kids) and the McGaugh community come together to provide our students with an enriched education that includes technology and the arts.  The Media Center/Innovation Lab, Art Lab and Computer Lab are fully-funded by Project SEEK, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization led by volunteer parents, faculty and staff.  These enrichment opportunities help make McGaugh a stand-out among elementary school and help to earn the California Distinguished School Award five times.

For over 20 years, Project SEEK has helped when state budgets threatened to eliminate crucial programs.  With the help of Project SEEK and your donations, the students of McGaugh:

  • Learn about art history and featured artists through our award-winning Art Lab and Pageant of the Arts Program
  • visit the state-of-the-art Media Center/innovation Lab, which focuses on hands-on learning in Science and Math to prepare our students for the future,
  • Receive instruction from our credentialed teachers in each of these outstanding programs.

Project SEEK was proud to raise of $155,000 in the 2019/2020 school year and to fully fund the credentialed teachers in the Media Center/Innovation Lab, Art Lab and Computer Lab.  This year, we must raise $133,000 to continue to provide McGaugh students with these essential enrichment programs.

This school year, we are faced with unprecedented circumstances and do not anticipate the ability to conduct our normal fundraising activities including Skate Night, Teacher Experiences at Carnival, and our largest fundraiser of each year, our annual gala, The Event.  Without these fundraising activities, we may not meet our usual fundraising goal as we have in the past.  However, if each McGaugh family were to donate $225, we would meet our annual fundraising goal.  Of course, any amount is welcome and appreciated!

Please consider becoming a Project SEEK Sea Lion Sponsor by making a tax-deductible donation to ensure the Technology and Arts programs remain at our school for years to come.  Every dollar counts.  Please refer to the linked form for more information.
