Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego 
San Diego's Ronald McDonald House provides a "home away from home" for families with a hospitalized child. Each night, they offer 55 families a place to stay so they can be near their child. Every day, they open their doors to anyone with a hospitalized child to come for a hot meal, refreshing shower and many other comforts of home, free of charge. The Ronald McDonald House gives parents a place to heal, recharge and be strong for their children.  Find out more HERE
  
We are proud to support this cause and hope you will join us. Your support means the world to us and the families at the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego.

TK  Interest Wait List Information:
Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st  who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, rather than a Kindergarten class, MUST place their child’s name on a District Interest Wait List.  Below are the steps for parents/guardians to take if they would like their child to attend TK rather than Kindergarten for the 2020-2021school year.  Please note that this is a new process.  Information can also be found on the PUSD website as well.  
•               Enroll your student in kindergarten at your school of residence during the first week of May.
•               Once enrolled and your student’s birthdate is verified, the school will give you instructions on how to place your student’s name on the TK Interest List later in May. 
•               Students will be placed on a first-come-first-serve basis. As always, due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK because of their age, space is limited. Students will be seated on a space-available basis according to the TK Interest List and possibly not at their home school.
•               Interest List placement is NOT a guarantee that a child will get a TK seat.
•               The TK Interest List is open only to students who live in the PUSD boundaries.
•               The student is returned automatically to his/her school of residence at the beginning of the following school year for Kindergarten.
If you have questions about the TK Interest List, please email pusdtk@pusd.com
