    educate the mind and encourage the heart and spirit of every individual.

    Intradistrict Transfers 2019/20

    Beginning October 15th, families can apply for an Intradistrict Transfer for their student(s) to attend a different school within MDUSD from their designated home school for the 2019-20 school year.

    Completed online applications for grades 1-12 must be submitted between October 15, 2018 and November 15, 2018 for the following school year. No online applications will be accepted after the November 15 , 2018 deadline. Intradistrict requests for Kindergarten will be accepted starting February 18, 2019 through March 18, 2019 . Students MUST be enrolled at their school of residence prior to submitting a transfer request.


    New Field/Back Entrance Update

    Fencing will be surrounding the play field for remodel by Oct. 1st. The backgate that students access to enter campus will be closed off due to construction.

    A temporary new access point will be at the play structure to the right of the daycare and another gate on the lower playground to the left of the daycare. These two areas will be clearly marked for you. Students can continue to come up the back hill, but will need to walk the path a bit more to access the new entrance.

    From Our PFC!

    Calling all Super Heroes!

    We at Mount Diablo Elementary (MDE) rely on the POWER OF GIVING to ensure that our students achieve all levels of success!

    • Level 1: Education

    • Level 2: Technology

    • Level 3: Enrichment

    If 100% of parents give, Parent Faculty Club (PFC) will be able to support our teachers, provide classrooms with new technology, and sponsor enrichment events.

    From our PFC: Help our 5th graders go to camp! Outdoor Education is a four-day, offsite field trip that is planned each year for 5th graders. The camp teaches a hands-on science curriculum and social skills, and provides a taste of the responsibility and independence students will need when they advance to middle school. Outdoor education is a fun, enriching experience that kids look forward to, and that they will never forget!
