Catch the Wave Wrap

Congratulations, Del Mar Hills Families … you are TOTALLY TUBULAR!

Thanks to your support of CATCH THE WAVE, our PTA membership and family giving campaign raised $31,000 for the students, teachers and programs of Del Mar Hills Academy. All told, 146 families and several staff members joined the PTA for an overall family participation rate of 57%.

Here are the Overall Results:

  • Kindergarten zoomed into 1st place: 74% of K families Caught the Wave! (Way to go, Kindergarten!!)
  • 2nd grade took second place with 68%

Results of the Classroom Races:

  • Mrs. Wilson’s K class took first place to top all classes!
  • Mrs. Ebright’s 1st grade class finished strong—an extremely close second
  • Big kudos to Mrs. Sleet’s 4th grade class for finishing third, and to Mrs. Kuntz’s 2nd grade class, which came in a close fourth

Again, thanks to ALL the families for your support. You really do make a difference! Make sure to pick up your incentive gifts during the first week of October (details to come), so you can show your Hills spirit.

Back to School Night


Back to school night started off in the classroom, came to the PAC for the introductions of the staff, the Adopt-A-College program, the PTA President, and the DMSEF (Del Mar Schools Education Foundation) Representative. It was a PACked house! After the introductions, Back to school night went back to the classroom for a second session. More will be revealed about the Adopt-A-College program at the PTA general membership meeting to be held on 9/9 at 5:30 in the PAC. Don’t miss it!

We now have a photo galleries page! Photos are also available through the news items.
