Other Community Information

If you are new to the La Jolla area, here are a few suggestions that may lend to meeting other LJES children during the summertime...

  • Attend the La Jolla Farmer's Market. It's held every Sunday from 9:00am-1:30pm on the back side of the elementary school. There are lots of yummy food vendors and local crafts along with live music. The proceeds from the market fund various initiatives enjoyed by all children at LJES, including school improvements and programs such as art, music, library, technology and additional classroom teachers to lower class sizes.

  • SD Family Magazine is a great resource for happenings around San Diego. We keep this monthly magazine stocked at the front desk in the office. In the meantime, you can browse the events calendar here.

In the meantime, please be sure to:
