La Fundación para la educación de Sunnyvale tuvo un año maravilloso!

La Fundación para la educación de Sunnyvale tuvo un año maravilloso! Existimos con el propósito de mejorar el entorno educativo y el año escolar pasado recaudamos casi $30,000 para lograr nuestra meta. Y con ese dinero, se realizaron proyectos muy buenos, incluyendo paquetes de ciencia, cubrimos el costo del transporte para algunas excursiones, asambleas para prevenir bullying, clases de arte y algunas cosas más. Hasta hoy en el año escolar actual, ofrecimos dos eventos para examenes de tuberculosis en dos escuelas. También suministramos $12,000 para cubrir el costo de excursiones de escuelas Title I y $10,000 más de concesiones que se repartieron a todas las escuelas en el distrito.

Nuestras escuelas han sufrido recortes de presupuesto estatal, así como todas las escuelas públicas en California, y necesitamos su ayuda. Su contribución monetaria se utilizará para seguir ofreciendo excursiones, examenes de tuberculosis, material didáctico, clases de música y arte y muchos otros beneficios para nuestros estudiantes. Donantes como ud. patrocinaron cerca de 30 estudiantes de quinto grado para que pudieran asistir al campamento de ciencia, al donar mas de $8,000. Nos gustaría patrocinar más niños este año. Nada de esto sería posible sin su ayuda.

Haga la diferencia a través de su contribución a www.SunnyvaleEducationFoundation.org/donate/ o manda un cheque.  Si el corporativo para el que ud. trabaja dobla su contribución es también bien recibido. SEF es una organización sin fines de lucro de la Sección 501(c)3 y su donación califica como una deducción caritativa en su declaración de impuestos federal. Nuestro numero de identificación de impuestos es 47-382571.

!Cada donación cuenta! Muchas gracias por su apoyo.

A successful science camp fundraiser!

We held an online fundraiser last May to raise money for Science Camp – a number of schools across the district had not raised enough money to pay for science camp that their fifth graders had already attended! We matched all funds up to $5000 raised, and were able to write the district a check for $8400 last June to cover much of the cost. We’re happy to have helped students have this formative experience, even in a small way.

If you would like to donate to cover costs for field trips, science camp, art books, or other things this year, consider heading over to our donation page and making a small donation. Any amount is appreciated and makes a difference!

Don’t forget about address verification and orientation!

School is almost back in session! Here are some important upcoming dates: 
  • Address verification is happening at several campuses this week. Please check your school’s web site for details. 
  • Columbia Middle School and Sunnyvale Middle School are hosting 6th grade orientation this year! It’s Friday, August 11th from 8am-12pm
    • SMS is also hosting a 6th grade parent orientation on August 11th, at 8-9 am OR 5-6pm. Both parent sessions will cover the same material – only attend one please.
  • First day of school is Wednesday, August 16!

We hope you’re enjoying the last few days of summer!
