Sign up for the 2017 SEF Jogathon!
The SEF annual Redwood Jogathon will be on Friday May 5 from 1 to 3pm. This event, which is a lot of fun and great exercise for the kids, is an important fundraiser for our schools with the proceeds going to Saratoga Education Foundation. Students will jog/walk around the field and help raise money for crucial programs in our schools. Please note that all students must have permission to walk. A permission slip and other information about the event are available online at our Jogathon fundraising website. It’s very easy to ask family and friends to support the Jogathon. There are great prizes too including the new Nintendo Switch (a very hard to get item) and Apple Watch Series II, black or a $250 Visa gift card.
We need volunteers! Parent help is needed the day of Jogathon. Please sign up to help at the “Volunteers” tab on the Jogathan site.
If you have any questions, please contact the Jogathon chair, Beth Kingsley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 with smaller class sizes and enriched programs. 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.
We recently distributed via the schools hard copies of our Outlook Annual Report for 2015-2016. You can download a copy here.
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. In order to fund our programs, we need all parents to make a contribution.
