Community Impact: Bridging the Gap

SEF bridges the gap in our students’ lives to provide experiences and resources that build upon and reinforce the work done in our schools.

1. Why do you support SEF?

SEF is a wonderful partner with the district and school sites providing programs and resources that might not exist otherwise. At Jefferson, SEF offers after-school cooking classes that are always popular. If I’m lucky, the kids give me a taste test. SEF also equipped one of our classrooms as a kitchen.

SEF has long supported the well-being of our students. The foundation helped create our Teen Zone – a safe space for students to play games and meet after school. Our school community also values the range of summer school enrichment classes that are offered.

Personally, I believe so strongly in the work of SEF and the benefits for our students that I have done a monthly payroll deduction to support their mission.
