                      The   Foundation of La Jolla High School, Inc. is a non-profit
                      public benefit corporation established over 25 years ago by
                      Viking parents to raise funds to meet the needs of La Jolla
    Rob Hixson        High School. Initially the Foundation asked parents and local
   Vice President     businesses for donations and sponsored several fundraisers.
    Cate Yashar       In 1990 the LJHS Alumni Association was founded making it
     Secretary        possible to ask Viking alumni to also support their alma mater.

    Jackie Helm       Since 1985 the Foundation has been successful in raising the funds needed to
     Treasurer        purchase items requested annually by the administration of LJHS. In addition, the
                      Foundation has succeeded in funding many major projects including:
                      	   Light up La Jolla — restored Field lighting & installed Edwards Gate

   Jay O’Neil ’64     your tax dollars to provide: textbooks, technology, classroom equipment, teaching

      Wes Pawl
                      athletic teams. In order to fund these requests the Foundation will need the support

        FROM THE PRINCIPAL – Dana Shelburne

                                           Because     the 2010-2011 school year has begun under the ongoing
                                           shadow of the state budgetary turmoil, I am more grateful than ever
                                           that the Foundation of La Jolla High School stands ready, as it has since
                                           its inception, to financially support the teaching and learning at this
                                           campus. Year in and year out—especially in these times of fiscal crisis—
                                           the Foundation has raised funds which allow us to offer educational
                                           opportunities and athletic programs we would otherwise not be able to
                                           afford. This generosity has helped LJHS continue to produce exceptional
                                           results in the classroom and on the fields of competition. Among last
                                           year’s honors:

             •       Our NOBCChe teams won regional championships and competed in national contest in
                     Atlanta and Washington, D.C.
             •       The LJHS National Oceanographic Science Bowl team won its regional tournament and
                     traveled to Florida to compete for the national title.
             •       The Viking Cyber Defense Robotic team won the first annual Mayor’s Cup.
             •       Our Academic League team won the Western League title, finished second in the county,
                     and traveled to Chicago for national competitions.
             •       The La Jolla High Drama department earned a “Bravissimo” award for exceptional work in
                     theatre education.
             •       Our Boys’ Basketball and Girls’ Water Polo teams earned CIF All Academic Team Status.
                     Our Boys’ Volleyball team earned similar honors from the Volleyball Coaches’ Association.
             •       Students in our Marine Science classes, in cooperation with San Diego State University,
                     have joined the international efforts to map the world’s oceans and spent many hours in
                     the Bird Rock area measuring and cataloging sea life.
             •       Viking athletics fielded teams in over 25 sports, with Boys’ Basketball and Boys’ Volleyball
                     reaching the CIF finals, and the Girls’ Track Team winning the CIF crown.

        This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but it does underscore the wide variety of activities and pro-
        grams available to students at La Jolla High School—many of which would not happen but for the
        ongoing support of the Foundation. Our students continue to excel both in the classroom and on the
        field of competition, and their ongoing success underscores the fine work done by students, staff,
        parents, and community in support of an instructional program that develops our future leaders. Your
        contributions are needed again this year, and I want to thank you in advance for choosing to support
        La Jolla High School.

                                      Mission Statement: The mission of the Foundation of La Jolla High
                                      School, Inc. is to enhance the overall educational experience of La Jolla
                                      High School students by soliciting, managing and disbursing funds to
                                      support academic, athletic, buildings and grounds, and other needs of
                                      the school for which funding is not available.

                                FOUNDATION SPECIAL PROJECTS
 TENNIS COURTS – Renovation Project
        Support for our Viking tennis teams and
 the school’s courts from LJHS parents, Viking
 alumni, and the La Jolla Tennis Club during the
 past several years made it possible to renovate
 the courts during the summer. The courts have
 been resurfaced, windscreens replaced, benches
 purchased, and lighting will soon be upgraded.

 Plans are now underway to form a committee in
 hopes of launching a major campaign to build
 additional facilities including seating, restrooms,
 snack bar and storage space at the north end
 of the field. If you are interested in serving on
 this committee, please contact Dana Shelburne
 at 858.454.3081.

        La Jolla High School’s theatre/auditorium was built in 1976 with funds raised by the community and
 matched by the school district. In May of 2010, almost 35 years later, the same lighting system, old and
 unsafe, was still being used. A complete upgrade will cost a minimum of $300,00. The Foundation asked
 those attending Nautilus, the Foundation’s Major Fundraiser, to donate to the Lighting Project during the
 Live Auction. The goal was to raise enough money for the purchase of a new light board and some lights.
 Almost $18,000 was raised, and with $32,000 added from the Foundation’s General Fund, a total of $50,000
 was donated to the Theatre Project. Current drama teacher, Ann Boutelle, and former drama teacher,
 Walter Stewart, are now forming a Lighting Project Committee to plan the fundraising campaign to raise the
 remaining funds needed to complete the project. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please
 contact, Ann Boutelle at 858.454.3801.

                                             The new ION Light Board was purchased over the summer. It
                                             was used for the first time in August for the performances of
                                             Alfred Hitchcock’s, “The 39 Steps”, presented by the Full Circle
                                             Theatre Company. Grayson Breen ’09, currently attending Em-
                                             erson College, was in charge of lighting design and direction.
                                             Brendan Milove ’10 and LJHS senior Katheryne Penny, were
                                             members of the cast.

        Each year the Foundation plans ways to raise funds to meet the needs of LJHS. This year we have
 scheduled the Annual Giving Campaign, 3 fun events: Vikings, Vines & Vintners, Taste of La Jolla, and the
 Viking Golf Classic, and additional activities including: eScrip, ticket sales for the PGA Golf Tournament at
 Torrey Pines, and student sports physicals. We hope that every LJHS family will help support the school by
 donating to our giving campaign, attending our events and participating in our activities.

        The Foundation is launching this year’s Annual Giving Campaign
 with the publiciation of this newsletter. Last year over $75,000 was donated
 by LJHS families and Viking alumni. We hope to top that number this year.
 Whether you are a current or past Viking family, we encourage you to donate
 now. The Foundation of La Jolla High School is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) public
 benefit corporation, so your donation is tax deductible. Whether you donate
 by check, credit card, online via our secure web site, or through a transfer
 of stock, you will receive a tax verification letter. We have enclosed a donor
 card and envelope for your use.

   SOS/SAVE OUR SCHOOLS – January 27-30, 2011
                                             Get inspired by watching the real pros at work at the Farmers’
                                      Insurance PGA Golf Tournament at Torrey Pines Golf Course. The Century
                                      Club, organizer of the annual event, will again make discounted tickets
                                      available to La Jolla High School. Tickets are $17 (a $34 value) and are
                                      good for any one day of the tournament. Even better, $15 is donated back
                                      to the school for each ticket sold. LJHS received over $8,000 last year
                                      thanks to the LJHS students and parents who helped sell tickets.

          Each year, Viking athletes are required to submit a doctor’s certification of fitness to participate in
   school sports. Leave it to the Foundation to figure out a win-win scenario — a win for the athletes’ families
   and a win for the school! Local doctors and nurses volunteer their time and expertise to perform hundreds
   of physicals in the campus gyms. At a cost of only $30 per physical, your family will save on time and con-
   venience, and pay little more than a typical insurance co-payment. Free hot dogs and drinks create a festive
   atmosphere, and last year almost $6,000 was raised for the students of LJHS.

             The Foundation of LJHS Board of Directors is composed of 25 dedicated men and women who con-
     tribute time, energy and funds in support of our school. They are current and former LJHS parents, Viking
     alumni, and community members with diverse skills and expertise. The Board’s primary role is to sponsor
     events and activities that raise funds to help the school meet its current and future financial needs. This is
     accomplished with committees, each of which has specific responsibilities. Additional sub-committees are
     formed to organize the larger events and special projects as needed. The Board meets monthly at 7:00 am,
     in the school’s library. Meeting dates for 2010-2011 are: Sept. 15, Oct. 20, Nov. 17, Dec. 15, Jan. 19, Feb.
     16, Mar. 16, Apr. 20, May 18, and June 8. Meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. People inter-
     ested in serving on the Board may obtain an application form via the Foundation’s website online or in the
     Foundation office located in the LJHS library.

     ACADEMIC COMMITTEE – Beth Penny, chair
            The Academic Committee reviews funding requests initiated by LJHS faculty and staff members and
     approved by principal Dana Shelburne. Requests are presented for approval at Foundation Board meetings
     based on funds available in each department’s fund or in the Academic General Fund. Last year, thanks to
     the success of the Annual Giving Campaign, funds were provided for textbooks, library books, evironmental
     science equipment, journalism computers, construction and transportation technology tools, sheet music
     and instruments, the AVID college trip, teacher workshops and conferences, and other requested items.

     FINANCE COMMITTEE – Jackie Helm, chair
            The Finance Committee prepares the Foundation’s annual budget for approval, reviews all financial
     statements, and develops and recommends internal financial control policies. The committee also manages
     the Foundation’s Endowment Fund which currently has a balance of over $100,000. Gifts to this fund are
     invested, and the proceeds provide support for LJHS in perpetuity. Donations to the Endowment Fund can
     be made online via the Foundation’s website or by using the enclosed donor card.

     FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE – Colleen McNally, chair
              The Fundraising Committee emphasizes both “funds” and “fun” in the numerous events and ac-
     tivities it oversees each year. The committee actively seeks parent volunteers to insure the success of the
     annual events. This year’s events include Vikings Vines & Vintners, Taste of La Jolla, and the Viking Golf

     MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE – Rob Hixson, chair
             The Membership Committee annually receives the names of people interested in becoming board
     members, reviews their qualifications, and presents a list of nominees to the Foundation board for approval.
     Members are required to serve on at least one standing and one fundraising committee, and to actively sup-
     port all Foundation activities and projects. Members are elected to a two year term and are eligible to be
     nominated to serve subsequent terms.

     TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE – Jon Gilbert, chair
            The Technology Committee meets with the LJHS administration and faculty members to determine
     what technology is needed for use in the classroom. Computers, LCD projectors, document cameras, and
     other hardware items, along with numerous software programs are reviewed by the committee and pur-
     chased as deemed appropriate.

 ATHLETIC COMMITTEE – Howard Frank, chair
         The Athletic Committee spearheads projects to provide the best opportunity for student athletes
 at La Jolla High School to participate at the highest level in diverse sports. With the funds raised through
 a variety of efforts, the Committee works closely with the school, specifically the athletic department, to
 maintain and improve the school’s athletic facilities including the baseball field, the softball field, the gyms,
 and the upper athletic field and track. The Committee also serves in a leadership role for athletics-related
 special projects, such as the Brent Woodall Clubhouse on the baseball field and the recently completed
 “Turf It” project. The “Turf It” project involved the installation of field turf (the best synthetic surface on
 the market) on the Muirlands Middle School Athletic Field which is part of the Deni and Jeff Jacobs Athletic
 Complex. This field is the home field for Viking baseball and is also used by the high school’s lacrosse, field
 hockey and soccer teams.
 The following are just some of the activities of the Athletic Committee:
    • Media Guide: Sold at athletic events during the year, this publication gives the name and team photo
         of all student athletes plus a brief bio on each coach and a prognosis for each team. Local families
         and businesses can buy ads in the guide.
    • Sports Supporter Program: Letters requesting donations are mailed to Viking alumni who played
         a specific sport as well as the parents of current student athletes. Proceeds help fund the sport
         designated by the donor.
    • Ad Banners: Local businesses can purchase banners that are displayed on the outfield wall for all
         baseball games and on the wall for all events held in the gym.
    • Alumni Games: For the past seventeen years the Committee has organized an annual Alumni Baseball
         Game. Seven decades of Viking baseball alumni participated in the 2009 game.
    • SOS/Save Our Schools: The Committee coordinates the sale of tickets to the annual Buick Open, with
         88% of the proceeds from the sales going directly to our school’s athletic programs.
    • Athletic Trainer: We were the first and continue to be one of the few high schools in the San Diego
         Unified District to have a full-time athletic trainer. The trainer is 100% funded by the Foundation.
    • Assistant Coaches: The Foundation provides funds for approximately 18 assistant coaches annually.
    • Sport Banners: The committee arranges for the purchase and display of league and CIF Championship
         banners won annually by Viking Athletes.
    • Throughout the school year our committee regularly receives requests from coaches for equipment,
         uniforms, and other items. We do all we can to fund each request.

         The Buildings and Grounds Committee is respon-
 sible for overseeing the ongoing grounds maintenance and
 repairs and replacement of campus facilities. Last year
 the scoreboard and lights on Scripps Field were repaired.
 The old visitor bleachers were removed so a retaining wall
 could be built, the area leveled, and new rental bleachers
 put in place. In addition, tables and chairs for the coun-
 seling office, new awnings for Parker Auditorium, and a
 grounds maintenance vehicle were purchased. PTA funds
 were used to purchase covered trash cans for the quad.
 Thanks again to Ted and Anne Peterson for organizing and
 participating in the monthly campus work parties.

                       the ljhs alumni association newsletter                           Keeping Vikings Connected!

         The LJHS Alumni Association, established in 1990 as part of the Foundation of LJHS, has made it
 possible for Viking alumni to connect with each other and their alma mater for the past 20 years. The Asso-
 ciation hosts a free website, “Viking Alumni Online” ( By registering on the site, Viking
 alums have access to information about the over 25,500 people who have attended LJHS since it opened
 in 1922. Alums can also go to the online Viking Alumni Store and purchase their Association membership,
 clothing and souvenirs.

 The Alumni Association also makes it possible for the Foundation to solicit donations from Viking alumni for
 the benefit of La Jolla High School. During the 09-10 school year, the Alumni Association supported numer-
 ous reunion committees, held the Annual Pre-Game Alumni Reception before the Homecoming Game, and
 hosted a 50th reunion reception for the class of 1959.

 The Viking Alumni Center is located in the LJHS Library/Media Center. Everyone is invited to visit the center
 and browse through the yearbooks, school newspapers and other donated items. Office hours are Mon, Tues,
 Thurs and Fri from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information please contact Alicia Snook, Association
 Administrator, at 858-551-9871 or via e-mail at
