"I recently attended a workshop with 24 other AP biology teachers from around the country. Many of them are working with few resources and small budgets. Thanks to my SEF grant, I have ordered everything I need to teach the revised version of AP biology. Talking to other teachers from other districts and states really makes me appreciate SEF even more than I already did. Thank you SEF for everything you have done for me, my students, and the other very lucky teachers in Summit."--Cynthia Vitale, SHS science teacher

"JEEP is fun and amazing. I love going to JEEP!" Two students enjoy hands on science learning.
JEEP is an after school program that was developed to boost skills in reading, writing, math, science and social studies through project based activities. Thirty students grades 2-5 attend the program four days a week. The program incorporates presenters and field trips into the various themes to reinforce learning experiences.
"I had to teach my Mom and Dad how to do one of the games. They learned something new and it was fun to be all together." --LH 4th grader
"Family math is a time for parents and their students to work together and enjoy math enrichment activities. Over the years, It has been great to see the families work together to figure out the tricky math problems."--Mrs. Ahern, LH teacher and Family Math Night leader
Family Math night is one of the longest, running SEF grants. This grant that reaches all elementary schools and their families brings students and parents together for a lively night of fun and learning. SEF also funds Family Science and Family Technology nights at all elementary schools throughout the district.
Family Math night was recently held at Jefferson Elementary. Check it out.
Matthew Clark, Brayton 2nd grader, enjoyed the bookmaking curriculum. "It really pops up the story!"
"Bookmaking provides opportunities for children to bring an added dimension to their stories and research. It's exciting to watch children work on both individual and group projects that bring their ideas to life. It seems very simple but it's wonderful to see a student have pride in creating a book with their own hands and share it with others."--Eleanor Wang, 2nd grade Brayton teacher
"It was challenging. Once it was done, it looked nice. It was worth it."--Charlie Hynes, Brayton 2nd grader
SEF provided funds to purchase two titles, Handmade Books for a Heathly Planet and Literacy Through Book Arts, and craft materials to support bookmaking in all second grade classrooms at Brayton. Over 75 childrenI enjoyed taking their writing to an artistic level.
