With the devastation and ongoing clean up in our neighborhoods and community from Hurricane Harvey, including many of our PTA chairpersons' homes, we will need to reach beyond our usual fundraising circles this year in order for PTA to provide our normal programs and services to the school. Please take a look at the attached letter and links.
We are asking that each family email the letter to at least 3-5 contacts outside the SFMS Community to ask for monetary support for our school, by providing the link below to our updated fundraising letter.
We know that with hard work our community will be rebuilt, and together we will remain SFMS Strong! We appreciate all of you and hope you can help in this way to support our school.
If you have any questions about this fundraising effort, please email [email protected].
SFMS PTA President
Through the funds donated, SFMS PTA has funded programs and events such as cultural events & programs, field trips, and assisted with performing arts, visual arts programs and library enhancements to name a few. In addition to these educational opportunities for the students, the PTA has sponsored continuing education programs for our teachers, upgraded technology and enhanced safety on campus by providing additional security cameras, among several other improvements. SFMS PTA also supports the community by working alongside Communities in Schools (CIS), and Family Point Resources. In a school where 61% of the 880 students are on a free/reduced lunch program, the funds provided by SFMS PTA are much appreciated and are vital to the overall success of students.
