Update: DESEF Teacher Grants
San Ramon Valley Unified School District is one of the lowest funded unified school districts in the state of California. DESEF’s mission is to enrich your child’s educational experience. Your donations directly impact your child’s experience at Walt Disney Elementary.

In September Teachers submitted grants to DESEF and in October we approved just over $4,000 in grants. Here is the list of approved grants:

  • A new playhouse for the Preschool and TK playground
  • STEM kits and “Morning Tub” materials for Kindergarten 
  • Historical Fiction Book Club Sets for 5th grade
  • STEM kits for 5th grade
  • Black Lights for Science Lab
  • Social and Emotional Learning Picture Books for a Teacher Library
  • Library building projects for several classrooms

We are looking forward to our next round of grants later this school year!
If you didn’t quite get around to donating during our annual fund drive, it’s never too late. You can still donate on Future Fund.

Contact Elise August. President of DESEF
Sister School
'Tis the season, the season of giving and we are asking the generous Disney families to give to our less fortunate sister school, Fremont Elementary. 

We are humbling requesting either $20 Lucky grocery store gift cards or funds to be converted into those same cards. A jar will be in the main office to collect the funds/cards. OR, you can give directly to the sister school chair, Patty Feger: pkfeger@gmail.com.
