Love Our Schools week

Love our Schools Week is back this year on November 7th – 12th and we are excited to love on our students, parents, staff and administrators, and facilities! Each day has a different focus:

  • Monday - Prayer at every school

  • Tuesday - Projects to encourage teachers

  • Wednesday - Projects for students

  • Thursday - Projects to support parents

  • Saturday - Facility beautification projects


On November 4th, 2023 the whole community of Costa Mesa will come together to show our appreciation and care for our local, public schools. You can make a difference in our kids by volunteering, hosting a project, or sponsoring the day. Be a part of making sure that our schools know that our community cares about them!


Free activities: DJ, Bounce house, Face painting, T-shirts, Lunch, Illusionist, & Balloon artist

Our future is currently in our schools.

Too many people are unaware of the challenges faced by our students, school staff and parents when it comes to education. Too few people in our community are engaged in the local schools to improve critical issues in literacy and general, practical support. There is no more strategic area in a city to make AWESOME than our schools, yet most sit on the sidelines. It's time to make an impact! Love Costa Mesa is facilitating a collaborative, strategic approach to impacting the next generation in our city through our local schools. Contact us to learn more about community collaboration to make a difference in our schools.
