To our SEF Donors and Volunteers,
We wish you all could have been at last night's Board of Education meeting. Irene Murdock and Christine Murray (Grants Chairs) did a fabulous job presenting the 41 grants that we approved this spring cycle. It was exciting listening as the list of grants was long, impressive, and will impact all of Summit's public school children. The $388,172 price tag that came along with all of those grants was impressive too!
After Irene and Christine finished announcing our "gift" to the district, the BOE members and all those present broke into a large round of applause that then escalated into a standing ovation. Ed Mokuvos took the mic and congratulated our efforts and made everyone aware that SEF will give 3/4 of a million dollars this year to the Summit Public Schools! George Lucaci, Dr. Parker, Gloria Ron-Fornes, Lou Pepe and others all commented on our efforts and were extremely grateful to ALL of the SEF volunteers and donors.
Thank you all for your support, dedication, and effort,
Leah Griffith and Amy Di-Sibio, SEF co-presidents
