SCEF 2017-2018 Year in Summary
The Sligo Creek Education Foundation was successfully able to raise more money than ever before during the 2017-2018 school year. Woo Hoo!! We raised $6,750.23 in the Read-a-Thon, $7,689.34 from the Auction and Beer Dinner and $4,000 in grants thus far.
Money raised was used to support the popsicle party in the Fall, SCEF newspaper club, STEM club and the Outdoor Classroom Coordinator. We also allocated $5,000 for the long-term fundraising goal of a shade canopy for the recess field.
I would like to thank Anu Aiyar, Monica Nermark and Chris Wacker for fearlessly serving on the SCEF Board this year. Our programming was spearheaded by Ms. Miller as the Newspaper Chair, Laura Farr as the Outdoor Classroom Coordinator and Ms. Brown and Ms. Fischer as the STEM Club Sponsors. Our successful auction was a result of Chris Wacker, Steph Spahr, Angie Gilp and Roxanne Holton. Tamara Grosko led the charge in grant writing. Greg Ewing was our legal advisor. The hard work of these individuals made such a successful year possible, for which I am grateful.
We would like to welcome Dunia Sinnreich to the board for the 2018-2019 school year as Treasurer! Like myself, Anu will also be moving on as she anticipates joining her husband on sabbatical for part of the year. Chris and Monica have kindly committed to continuing to serve on the SCEF Board for another year though. As a result, we need to fill the position of President and Vice-President to the board . Note: Without a President the SCEF CANNOT continue to exist and we will need to fold the organization. Our auction committee has graciously agreed to help with the event again next year, but we have several other roles we would like to fill. We are looking for individuals who are willing to coordinate the Read-a-Thon, manage the website, write grants, develop community partnerships and more. Please reach out to [email protected] if you are willing and interested in serving.
Looking forward to a successful 2018-2019 school year!
