Did you know that Monterey Ridge Elementary School (MRES) was recognized as a 2018 California Distinguished School? MRES is committed to creating a culture of success by building the knowledge and skills to ensure college, career, and life readiness for every student. The Foundation is proud to be a part of this amazing Learning Community and we support programs that enhance the learning experience for students at our Distinguished School.

Examples of support include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Impact Teachers or Instructional Aides
  • Purchasing numerous iPads and Chromebooks
  • Art Program
  • Physical Education Equipment
  • Monarch Garden
