Giving Students A Stronger Future
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Stronger Together Campaign! Because of the generosity of our community for this year-end giving campaign, we are happy to announce we raised over $17,700!
These funds are used to provide mentoring for at-risk students, innovative classroom grants, support for teachers, and technology for high-need students choosing distance learning.

Thank you for helping students have a stronger future!

Special thanks to these donors who made a big impact:

You Can Golf FORE Education
Join us for the Golf FORE Education Tournament on Monday, March 22nd at The Legacy Club at Alaqua Lakes. You'll get to spend the day on the golf course while enjoying delicious food, drinks and prizes!
Because all funds raised through the tournament support The Foundation's many programs that benefit the students and teachers of Seminole County Public Schools, your fun day will be for a great cause.

Thank you Insurance Office of America for once again returning as our Presenting Sponsor! We have limited availability so sign up today to hold your spot! The tournament has sold out early the past three years!
Cleaning Out Your Supply Closet?
With so many employees working remotely, many businesses are exchanging classic office supplies like staplers and tape dispensers for headphones and webcams.

Tools 4 Seminole Schools is happy to take any office supplies no longer needed to share with the teachers and students of Seminole County Public Schools!

Ideal items are: paper, pens, pencils, highlighters, binder clips, paper clips, scissors, post-its, rubber bands, tape & tape dispensers and staplers & staples.

Drop off to Tools 4 Seminole Schools on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1-4 PM or call 407.320.7768 to schedule another drop off time.
Addition to Help Celebrate SCPS Teachers
The past year has been one of the most challenging times in education, yet teachers are rising up to help students succeed.
On February 5th, SCPS will hold their annual Teacher of the Year Celebration. While this year’s event will be held virtually, it will still be a celebration that showcases each of our SCPS Teachers of the Year who stepped up during a year like no other.

We’re thankful to have Addition Financial join us as the Presenting Sponsor for the eighth consecutive year. “Addition Financial is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the Seminole County Public Schools Teacher of the Year Awards. As a credit union founded by educators, we understand firsthand that shaping our future begins in our schools,” said Kevin Miller, President/CEO of Addition Financial Credit Union. “We look forward to celebrating the hard work and dedication of our Seminole County teachers through even the most challenging of times.”

Have You Heard?
Thank you to the Florida Blue Foundation for their generous support of The Foundation and Seminole County Public Schools!

Their $20,000 donation will help fund critical programs that serve students and educators like Take Stock In Children - Seminole, Grants for Great Ideas, Tools 4 Seminole Schools store, #ArtsAlive2020.

Without generous community partners like the Florida Blue, all that we do to serve students and teachers in SCPS would not be possible.
To kick off the new school semester, The Foundation was able to provide 4,000 school supply kits to elementary and middle school students through our Tools 4 Seminole Schools.

A BIG thank you to Seminole County FL CARES and Lockheed Martin for their generous donations that made these possible! And thanks to our media partners who joined us in passing out kits to students at Idyllwilde Elementary Future Ready Academy. These tool kits are going to mean so much to SCPS students and families this semester.
