Teacher Gratitude Lunch
Sequoia High School
Each year, Sequoia opens its arms to welcome a new crop of prospective students to the campus for an informational evening. This "8th grade Information Night" provides students and their parents the opportunity to hear from academic department chairs and see curricular and extracurricular programs in action during 10-minute workshop sessions.
Given the restrictive parameters of 2020, we have worked to replicate this experience virtually, and have created THIS INTERACTIVE PRESENTATION. Please note: If viewing in Google Slides, enter PRESENT MODE for best experience. An embedded version of the presentation can also be found at rebrand.ly/seqinfonight.

Honey Bear Trees is again coming to our area this Christmas season and offering SCEF a donation for every tree purchased when you mention SCEF. There is more information available here.
Support SCEF as you Shop on Amazon
SmileAmazon is a great way to support SCEF while doing all your online shopping. Visit the Smile Amazon and choose “San Carlos Education Foundation,” and Amazon will donate a portion of each purchase to SCEF. It’s super easy and works on both desktop and mobile purchases.
Gift Appreciated Stock
By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20 percent more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation. The reason is simple: avoiding capital gains taxes, see more information from here.
