Thank you for your interest in Shark Fund! Shark Fund is a 100% parent funded, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing each student with programs that enhance the quality of education they receive at Sycamore. Shark Fund donations consist of parent donations, corporate matches, business givebacks, and auction funds raised in partnership with PTA that help support over $300,000 in critical staff, programs and resources every year.


Shark Fund invests in the following programs:

  • Trained Paraeducators in every classroom (7-8 hours/week, supporting K-5th grade classes working with students individually and in small groups)
  • Teacher on Special Assignment, supporting principal and teachers with curriculum development, enrichment programs, standardized testing, and more
  • 75% of the Librarian's salary, enabling weekly classroom visits for all students
  • Reading Intervention for grades K-5
  • Art Instruction for all grades (7 lessons/classroom)
  • Progressive technology program supporting 21st Century teaching and learning
  • Physical Education class for Kindergartners (twice per week, to enable small group instruction)
  • Staff Training and Professional Development (teacher release time)
  • Supplemental Office Hours to support Sycamore's community (medical, attendance, clerical, communications)
  • Rainbow Room to provide social development support for K-3 students


These programs are possible thanks to generous donations from parents and volunteers. Sycamore has been recognized as a California Distinguished & Gold Ribbon school, and your support ensures your students stay on top. Thank you again for your support!


Thank you for making a difference in your child's education by donating today! Each and every donation makes a difference and Together We Are Shark Fund!


To provide resources to maximize the educational experiences of each and every student at Sycamore Valley Elementary School.

Shark Fund's suggested donation is $400 per student for the 2018-2019 school year to support ongoing programs.


This voluntary donation is one of the lowest in the district and is due to the high participation rate of Sycamore families who contribute to Shark Fund each year.
