We need YOU! We need to pick up where we left off and raise our voices to the voters in our community. This is our big chance to truly make an impact! The new parcel tax Measure A will allow our kids to return to the well-funded schools they deserve, but it can only happen if we gain support from voters for it's passage.
YesForCUSD is making yard signs, available in March, as well as organizing district wide door-to-door canvassing days on Saturday, March 27 and Saturday, April 24.
We will provide you with training and talking points along with a smartphone app to direct you. You'll knock on doors in your neighborhood that the campaign has identified as likely supporters. You'll say a friendly hello, and remind your neighbor how valuable schools are to you and to them. It's fun and easy. Social distancing and COVID-19 safety will be implemented.
Please indicate on HSC's Google form if you are able to place a yard sign at your home, and which times you will be able to help canvass: Yes on Measure A - Volunteer Form

With the beginning of this new year, we are kicking off our annual donation request (normally in September). If your family is in a position to donate at this time please consider supporting our school through Home & School Club. Direct Donation
What is Home & School Club?
The Home & School Club (HSC) is De Vargas's parent and teacher volunteer organization (like PTA) that helps raise money to fund school programs and provide activities for the De Vargas community.
Every parent is a member so we encourage you to get involved! Attend a meeting to discuss how donations are spent, what HSC is planning for the year, and hear from our Principal. Free childcare and snacks will be provided.
Get connected and informed about events taking place at our school! Follow us on facebook (De Vargas Elementary Home & School Club), or ask to join our email list.
Our next meeting will be at 6:30pm on Tuesday, April 6, 2021
2020-2021 HSC Board Representatives
A huge thank you to these wonderful parent volunteers who have offered their time and talents to helping De Vargas this coming school year. Thank you for your leadership and service!
It’s simply not possible to run all of the extra things we do without parent support. A few of the many activities we host include a Pumpkin Festival, Walk-a-thon, Bingo Night, Family Dinner Night, and a Field Day.
We are always looking for Project Cornerstone Readers, Lion Stampede lap counters, and Yearbook photographers, or speak with your child’s teacher about helping in the classroom.
Contact us to find out how you can help!
The Home & School Club puts on a variety of fundraising and community-building events at De Vargas throughout the year. Check out our Calendar!
