In our second decade of supporting Stonington Students
SAVE THE DATE!!
This year's "Education Celebration" will be held at the Mystic Aquarium on February 28, 2014.
Last year's event was a complete success. The Mystic Aquarium offered a fantastic venue to celebrate our local schools, and all the opportunities that have been enabled by your donations to the SEF. We hope to see everyone return to this event, along with new faces.
Fall 2013 Blue Monday Donations
This past summer's Blue Monday Concert Series at the Mystic River Park, which featured well known jazz musicians, raised $3500. Thank you to all those who donated. These monies will be used to augment the Stonington School District's music programs. Check out our website later in the year to see how your donations are being used!
Fall 2012 Mini Grant Donations
The SEF board also approved $2890 in Mini Grants recommended by the Career Incentive Committee.
The SEF has awarded approximately $20,000 in grant money over the past two years alone. Recent grant projects that have benefited from the generosity of SEF include: the Community/Sensory Learning Garden at West Vine School, Vocabulary Videos in the district's 2 middle schools, the Book Buddies program between PMS and WVS, and our middle and high school music programs. Money granted to purchase items on the secondary schools wish lists was raised through the Blue Mondays Concert series which is held in the Mystic River Park each summer.
We give special thanks to our web site sponsor, the Stonington Veterinary Hospital
