    Dear Sarah Smith Community, 


    A community is much more than where people reside. It is action. It is service. It is caring. Your incredible support and care continue to have a tremendous impact on the academic future of our Sarah Smith scholars. I am elated to share how your generosity benefits the students of Sarah Smith.  


    The Sarah Smith Elementary Foundation (SSEF) funding provides our students with opportunities that enhance the curriculum. Have your children come home excited about High Touch High Tech? These are just a few of the learning experiences that SSEF is able to offer our students through your donations. SSEF has purchased Eureka Math, classroom libraries, math manipulatives amongst other curriculum resources and supplies for the school.  


    The Sarah Smith Elementary Foundation also promotes and encourages innovation at Sarah Smith through teacher grants. Teachers can write a proposal to fund a project, submit it to the foundation and if approved, implement their project. The possibilities are limitless! 


    Many of you are aware of the teacher shortage crisis across the nation. The work that the foundation is doing to support our teachers with funds for classroom supplies, International Baccalaureate Programme, Dual Language Immersion and other trainings are critical to retaining and attracting highly qualified staff.   


    The support that our scholars and faculty receive from the Sarah Smith Educational Foundation is invaluable and has assisted in making Sarah Smith the school of choice. 


    To donate, make a pledge, and learn about your employer’s corporate matching program, please read more about the SSEF Star Fund or contact this year’s Star Fund Co-Chairs  at annualcampaignssef@gmail.com


    I cannot thank you enough for your generous donations. It really makes a difference for our students and staff. Thanks again for helping to make Sarah Smith a great school to learn and grow!
