President's Update
Dear Friends of SEF,
Fall is such a beautiful time of year. With the school year in full swing, you can feel the energy of the students on the school campuses. SEF is eagerly developing programs and events for everyone to enjoy.  As the president of the foundation, I am always available to you. Providing educational opportunities through
exceptional programs and events is part of our mission. The students, schools, staff and community are all important to us. Together let us enjoy and cherish every moment of this special time of year!  

Supporting SEF is a great opportunity for you to get involved. This year, I have the honor of working with a passionate group of individuals who serve on the SEF Board of Trustees. There is a mix of enthusiastic parents and community members like yourselves who dedicate their time to raise awareness and funds for ALL students in the San Gabriel Unified School District. On behalf of these volunteers, we know we can't do any of this without YOU!

SEF has something for everyone ... those who want to participate in events, committees, and planning ... those who have special skills to help us grow and even those who want to support the foundation financially. It takes many hands to help with the many activities and programs SEF provides the students, and we need you! Volunteer opportunities are open to parents, family members, grandparents, friends, teachers, anyone who would like to support SEF, the students and the schools. We invite you to volunteer for a day, an event, or as a board member...please contact us to learn more about the volunteer position waiting for you. 

Most importantly, your compassion will let the students know their community supports them.  Please take a moment to give now and help as many students as possible as you share your generosity.  Thank you!

Wishing you all a happy fall!! 

Kindest regards,
Alison DeVriendt
