This may take 1-2 days, depending on volunteer interest & commitment. Ms. Perea is on campus every Wednesday until 4 PM. If you are interested, she can review tasks with you on a Wednesday & then you are free to come back & organize another day according to your schedule.

  • Thank you to the Curie Crew (Candi, Cody, Dan, Jeff, John, & Brian) for installing new wall ball courts at Curie on Friday! We can't wait to see these painted with the winning designs from the art contest next month. Another huge thank you goes out to Gary Cole with San Diego Renovations for building the walls in advance of installation - we can't do this without the help of our awesome community of volunteers! Check out the photos below to see the progress, & if you're interested in getting in on the fun, send an email to
