Welcome to the site of the Acacia Partnership!
Who are we? We are the Acacia PTA and the Acacia Elementary School Foundation, working together to support the students of Acacia Elementary School, voted #1 school in OC by the OC Register earlier this year!
Acacia is a great place for our students to learn because of the great teaching and administrative staff. However, Acacia is a great community because the Acacia Partnership works in conjunction with school staff to provide additional community and school spirit activities through our PTA, and to support our school with fundraising dollars through the Acacia Elementary School Foundation.
PTA Sponsored events include:
- Father & Daughter Dance
- Mother & Son Night Out
- Book Fairs
- Family Movie Nights
- Dining with Acacia
- Variety Show
- Holiday Concert
- Muffins with Mom
- Donuts with Dad
Foundation Fundraising events include:
- Membership Drive
- Fall Festival
- Parent Party & Auction
- Art Walk
We are so glad you are interested in our school.
Thank you for supporting Acacia Elementary School!

PS, to get a feel for what we do, see our letter to the school dated February 2013…
Letter from the Foundation President
CONGRATULATIONS, Acacia Elementary School!
To the teachers and administration, THANK YOU!!!
To the students, WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!!!
We are so thrilled that the OC Register has named Acacia Elementary School the number 1 school in Orange County. They have recognized Acacia for its “concerted effort to improve performance as measured against schools with similar demographics, embracing technology as a key to that effort”…”
The Acacia Partnership—fundraising to meet the needs and goals of the school, and organizing community building activities to foster school spirit—the organizations working together to serve the children of Acacia. The Foundation Board of Directors, made up of teachers and parents, will allocate the monies raised to support programs that provide enrichment.
The Acacia Foundation will continue its efforts on behalf of the children of Acacia, supporting enrichment
It's a BIG month for the Foundation... It's time for our annual Gala... All That Jazz, a Roaring 20's Gala; and what an event it will be. Friday, February 22, 6pm...
The idea is simple: throw a fabulous party with people who love to have fun, eat well, and who are willing to buy stuff at auction to support Acacia. The auction catalog is on the website, www.theacaciapartnership.org, (go to the Gala 2013 tab) for a sneak peak at the items that will be available at the silent and live auctions. The classroom canvases will be available for general viewing and bidding before the Gala event...don't miss a chance to see the beautiful work done by our children. (We had a great turn-out at the 2/1 Fullerton Art-Walk, and the bidding has already begun!)
The Gala Committee, led by Paula Esterson and Lisa Rowley, has been hard at work planning this event for months... Thank you to each of you who have contributed time, money, items, creative efforts, and support to this great endeavor!
So, what will the Foundation do with the money we hope to raise at the Gala? In addition to the monies raised by the Jog-a-Thon, Fall Festival, and during the Fall Membership Drive, the funds raised at the Gala will go to continuing the Foundation's mission of supporting enrichment programs for Acacia. That's the simple answer... but, with budgeting, nothing is simple. The more difficult explanation takes into account the changing and decreasing monies available at the state and district levels for funding programs at the school; evaluating the current programs; surveying the teacher community to determine what they believe to be crucial to the continuing enrichment of our children, and then supporting those programs. The PE Program, Accelerated Reader, All the Arts, Technology...all important programs to have at Acacia, and which were supported this year by the Foundation.
Please join us in support of Acacia: your time, effort, donations and support are necessary for our continued success.
