Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation to hold Scholars’ Circle event


The Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation will host a special evening in recognition of Scholars’ Circle level donors at the beautiful home of Greg and Alex Johnson on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 6-8 p.m.

This fun-filled evening themed “A Night in White” will feature white attire, white food, and interactive games. The Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation’s community partner, Wells Fargo — The Private Bank, generously underwrites this event. The co-chairs of “A Night in White” are Alex Johnson and Amy Marren.

Scholars’ Circle members continue a tradition that began in 1997 when a group of 25 Rancho Santa Fe school families came together to provide considerable funds to supplement the RSF School District annual budget allowing for an enriched public education. Today’s Scholars’ Circle is made up of parents and members of the community who pledge $35,000 or more, usually over a three-five-year period. These multi-year pledges play a significant role in allowing the RSF School District to plan staffing and program commitments into the future. Scholars’ Circle contributions support the “Five Star Education” of R. Roger Rowe School, which focuses on small class size, specialized teachers, literacy excellence, integrated science and differentiated mathematics. This year the RSFEF is providing a grant of 1.1 million dollars to the school district generously donated by school families.
