The CDM Foundation is dedicated to supporting the outstanding efforts of our students at CDM Middle and High School. As educational funding from our State and District become more limited, it is imperative that, as parents, we supplement the education of our children. In the 2015-2016 school year, the CDM Foundation will provide approximately $200K in funding to our academic and arts programs. The Foundation needs your financial support so we can help provide CDM the funds to meet the financial expenses associated with our Science programs, Advanced Placement Classes as well as our Music programs.
This school year, the Science department will be granted $35,000. The Science department chairs and the principals strive to provide our students the tools and resources so that our children receive an excellent education in Science. This school year the monies will go to funding a Science Teaching Assistant/Laboratory Coordinator (Christina Juska), our C-STEM program and other science specific programs. In the previous years, similar grants were used to purchase microscopes, Qwizdom testing devices and miscellaneous science supplies.
Also, each year the Foundation grants our highly successful AP programs with funds to provide extra programs and lectures to insure student success in the classroom and during AP testing.
In addition, the Foundation has been an enthusiastic supporter of Mr. Jamora’s Music program. The Music department runs various classes during the regular bell schedule, plus additional Drum Line instruction after school hours. This year the Foundation will grant $45,000 to the Music department. Mr. Jamora uses this money to fund teaching assistants, purchase equipment, and hire professional instructors to help with specific instruments.
If your child is in science, Advanced Placement or music classes at Corona Del Mar, they are directly benefiting from your donations and funds granted by the Foundation.
