SPS Parent & Community campaign

Each year our school staff participate in an annual campaign to support the Suffolk Education Foundation.  This money comes directly back to the schools in the form of instructional grants, fee assistance and scholarships.  Our teachers know that many of us working together make a large impact, resulting in programs and opportunities that would struggle to happen without the support of the SEF.

We are asking our parents to join our teachers and SPS staff in making a financial impact in the lives of our students.

In addition to $15,000 in annual scholarships, the Buddy Bench program, or more than $3,000 in assistance for dual enrollment and AP test fees, we provide more than $18,000 in instructional grants, that have provided:

  • Suzuki Hand Chimes at JYMS
  • Lego Robotics
  • Lab Equipment and Programs at all 3 high schools
  • Farm day for 2nd graders
  • Field trip for 5th graders to the Petersburg battlefields

These are just a few of the activities which the SEF has been able to sponsor over the years.  Of course the foundation would like to do more, but we can only do it WITH YOUR HELP!
