Announcement from the Board of Directors:

Pleasant Valley Education Foundation will be winding down operations and suspending its major programs as of June 30, 2019.

Our remaining funds will be dispersed as follows for as long as those funds last:

1. A process of awarding mini-grants, in memory of our recently deceased and much beloved board president, Bob Taylor, will resume to fund classroom needs and projects for teachers in the Pleasant Valley School District and Camarillo public charter schools. Application deadline for the 2019-20 school year is still to be determined and will be announced.

2. Applications for funding will be accepted from parent- or school-led teams located in Camarillo who are participating in FIRST LEGO League, to pay for registration with the national and local LEGO League programs and attendant expenses. Applications are open until the end of the business day Friday, September 20, 6pm. Check back in to this website at the end of calendar year 2019 for policies and procedures for applying for funds for the Spring 2020 FIRST LEGO League Jr. program, if we are able to extend the program into next year.

We are gratefully accepting donations for the Bob Taylor Teachers' Grant Fund and for the FIRST LEGO League Team Fund.

The Board of Directors would like to express its appreciation to the thousands of volunteers -- parents, educators, and community supporters -- who came together over the years to make our afterschool programs possible. We will cherish the memories of all the amazing kids who have sung and danced, programmed and built, memorized and spoke with pride. Thank you for caring about Camarillo's kids. 

Some of Our Major Programs

   


 WE REGRET THAT THIS PROGRAM HAS ENDED WITH THE SUSPENSION OF MAJOR OPERATIONS OF PLEASANT VALLEY EDUCATION FOUNDATION

  CineMagic is a performing arts program for students in 3rd through 8th     grade that builds self-confidence while providing standards-based   instruction in singing, dancing and acting. It exposes children to the   performing arts -- theater traditions and music styles, such as jazz -- that they might not otherwise be able to experience. The program culminates in a spring performance on a large stage. Read more...
