Support Alpine School Programs By Attending the AEF Spring Gala – April 21, 2018

Please join this effort by attending the AEF Spring Gala at the Viejas Oak Ballroom on Saturday, April 21, 2018 where there will be a Buffet Style Dinner, Live & Silent Auctions, and Music & Dancing all to support Educational Programs in the Alpine Union School District.

This year AEF has pledged to raise the needed funding to enable Proud Superintendent Rich Newman’s Wheels of Experts program.  This is a transformational program to provide integrated Pathways of enhanced electives across the district; to offer students and parents choice and options; to reinforce that Alpine Union is The Destination District of the East County!

When fully implemented, Wheels of Experts will provide multiple Pathways from Kindergarten through the Middle School enabling students to prepare for, and participate in, distinctive and enhanced electives.  This goal is to be achieved in part by identifying teachers with unique skills, and to compensate those teachers for the extra effort to visit every campus every week; to introduce their specialty, to help identify and mentor other teachers into those specialties.  Look to the successful Robotics-Coding-Engineering program at Joan MacQueen.  It is producing engineering teams every year that are winning local, regional and national recognition.  That program is now established and is being executed so well by our wonderful Diana Tompkins.

All of you funded that program through your support of AEF.  I have attached a write-up on it for you to read HERE: aef robotics-coding-engineering program history 2018-04-02 alt

Think now of expanding Robotics-Coding-Engineering into a Pathway from kindergarten through grade school through middle school.  And that is beginning to happen.  Our great teachers, Erica Lyle at Shadow Hills and Kathryn Golden at Boulder Oaks, will be offering Robotics courses at the AEF summer ReadyBreak Camps.  Erica Lyle is gearing-up for a regular curriculum of Robotics at Shadow Hills.

Along with Robotics-Coding-Engineering, Wheel of Experts is intended to provide Pathways for Math, Art, advanced Physical Education/Sports, and too even for Music, Nutrition, and Culinary Arts in  time.  We can achieve it all, if we can fund it all!  Again the overall program objective is to provide students and parents with choice and options for an enhanced education leading into the mid-21st Century.

2018 Scholarship Applications for Local High School Seniors and Foster Youth

Cal Coast Cares Foundation Announces 2018 Scholarship Applications for High School Seniors and Foster Youth! All applications must be received or postmarked no later than March 31, 2018.

SAN DIEGO – March 9, 2018 – The Cal Coast Cares Foundation has announced it will award up to $35,000 in scholarships this year for college-bound high school seniors and current or former foster students in San Diego or Riverside counties. “The Cal Coast Cares Foundation scholarship award programs recognizes outstanding students and foster youth for their dedication to academic excellence and community leadership,” said California Coast Credit Union President & CEO Todd Lane. “Sadly, too many foster students spend years in the foster care system moving from one school district to another, so it is tough to find stable ground. Through our scholarship programs, the foundation is determined to provide educational opportunities to help them to find stability and achieve great success.”

Scholarship applications for foster students as well as college-bound high school seniors are available here: All applications must be received or postmarked no later than March 31, 2018.

In addition, the Foundation will award $12,000 in grants to local educators for classroom-based projects. Information on grant opportunities can be found here: All grant applications must be received or postmarked no later than June 30, 2018.

Cal Coast Cares Foundation was established by California Coast Credit Union in 2015 as a non-profit organization to give back to the community by providing scholarship opportunities for local students and grants for educators. You can help students and teachers by donating to the Cal Coast Cares Foundation here:

New Video ALL ABOUT Alpine’s Joan MacQueen Middle School (JMMS)

Check out this new video all about Alpine’s own Joan MacQueen Middle School! Its very informative and really points out all the amazing programs the school has to offer, including the “outdoor classroom” in Wright’s Field Nature preserve that is located right behind the school!


Joan MacQueen Middle School is unique in that we are the only middle school in Alpine. Many of our students have grown up here. They went to kindergarten together, then different elementary schools, and now are back together at Joan MacQueen.

You can’t help but be struck by the beauty of our campus. The giant front lawn, beautiful gym, smaller quad spaces near the classrooms, and our own outdoor classroom, Wright’s Field.

Not only do we have our strong academics, but a variety of elective choices for our students’ varied interests. Students participate in hands-on electives such as coding, robotics, maker-space, culinary arts, band, art, photography, and yearbook. They can participate in leadership with ASB, express themselves in performing arts, learn a new language, or receive additional academic support.

Our PE coaches offer after school sports in cross country, basketball, and flag football. Joan MacQueen Middle School is Alpine. It’s a community where we care about each other.

Joan MacQueen Middle School part of the Alpine Union School District and is located at 2001 Tavern Rd, Alpine, CA 91901. For more info please call Mary Ann Alvarez, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent at (619) 445-3245 or email
