SEF welcomes all families to the launch of the new academic year. If you are continuing your journey with us for another year we hope we can continue to count on your support. If you are new to the school district we would like to highlight the critical nature of our mission in enhancing the quality of education provided in your schools.
Established since 1982, SEF has been an integral part of the success in raising the standards of the Saratoga Union School District (SUSD) making it one of the most desirable school districts in the US. SEF is a collective parental effort, entirely volunteer-run, independent non-profit [501(c)(3)] organization bringing excellence to our schools. Our appoach ensures that nearly 100% of your donations go directly to our students’ school programs. We are most grateful to the Saratoga community including all of the principals, teachers, families and local small businesses whose support makes possible high quality educational programs for each of our students.
Direct donations from parents like you make up the vast majority of SEF funding. Tax deductible donations benefit every child in our school district. We also receive donations from local businesses and community members. Please get to know what we do and help us continue to help our kids through the education programs we provide for every child during the school day. If you sent your child to private schools in the area, for K-8 kids the costs are typically over $26k per annum. We ask for a tiny fraction of this sum ($800 per student) to provide programs that are educationally enriching and highly competitive.
SAVE THE DATE: On September 24th, from 4-8 pm at the Saratoga Prospect Center, SEF will be holding a Family Fair Event. All parents are invited to join us for an evening of fun for the whole family where you can learn more about SEF and meet the teachers. There will be food and live music, entertainment for the kids, raffles and workshops run by SEF teachers. Tickets now available here!
