The Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation will host its annual Newcomers’ Pool Parties on Aug, 17, 18 and 19, from noon-3 p.m. at private residences, for new families to the Rancho Santa Fe School District to meet others and make new friends prior to the beginning of the school year. Pool parties are hosted by parents of current students at private homes in Rancho Santa Fe, with refreshments and desserts donated by the Ranch Hands, a group of other families currently in the school. Newcomers’ events are organized by parent volunteers and made possible by donations through the RSF Education Foundation. The Newcomers Chair for 2011-12 is Tiffany Catledge.
