December Dates Added to TL Lunch Help Sign-up!
A huge thank you to all those who helped throughout November with hot lunch distribution! It continues to make such a huge difference for both our hard-working lunch server and our students, and it would be wonderful if we could fill the December calendar with two helpers per day as well. Please sign up here to help. Thank you!
San Carlos Education Foundation SCEF
Our fundraising goal this year is $3.7 million and the suggested per-student donation is $1,850, which includes funding for your PTA. Check out our website for more information and the many ways to give. We are all SCEF! Curious to hear how students, teachers, parents and community supporters feel about SCEF? Watch here.
Have you made your plan yet to give this school year? Do you need to give before 12/31/2022 for tax reasons? If so, please start that process now, as it can take some time.
- Appreciated Stock - A gift of appreciated stock (that you have held for more than 1 year) is better than selling the stock and donating the proceeds.
- Workplace Giving - Many employers will match your donation to SCEF and some are offering end-of-year matching at 2:1.
- Donor-Advised Fund - Prefer to donate via Donor-Advised Fund from your Fidelity, BNY Mellon or Schwab Charitable accounts?
Unique ways to support SCEF while you shop:
- Honey Bear Trees is back this season and offering a 15% SCEF donation for every tree and wreath purchase–don’t forget to mention SCEF. Details on this flyer.
- Sports Basement supports SCEF. Here is info about a 20% off event at Sports Basement THIS week, 12/7-14. Sports Basement also has their Basementeer Program that gives back 10% to the charity of your choice. Register and assign SCEF as your charity of choice, and shop year-round. Last year they gave over $10,000 to SCEF!
- SCEF Night at the Warriors: Saturday, 12/10 vs. Boston Celtics
Special ticket pricing–NO Ticketmaster fees. NO Taxes. And your purchase benefits San Carlos public schools! Tickets available HERE.
- Support SCEF as you Shop on Amazon
Amazon Smile is a great way to support SCEF while doing your online shopping. Visit Amazon Smile 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.
Healthy Cities Tutoring is Recruiting Volunteers
For 25 years Healthy Cities Tutoring has provided tutoring services to thousands of students in need. Following two years of pandemic, students are falling further and further behind in school. We need volunteers more than ever!!
We hope you or someone you know will get involved in this rewarding volunteer experience. No tutoring experience required, we can provide training. 8th grade and high school students are welcome to tutor with us. Students can receive community service hours, and use the experience for resume building and college applications. Adult tutors are always welcome!
It only takes one hour a week to make a positive impact on a child’s life.
Please check out our website for the volunteer application https://healthycities.site or contact Janelle Gibson, HCT Program Coordinator at 415-793-1064 or [email protected]rg
