The Springfield Education Foundation annual fund campaign “Their Potential. Our Goal.” provides funds for educational programs that have positive student outcomes. Kelli Warner, chair of the 2015-16 campaign, has seen and heard directly from students whose lives have changed due to the investments made possible by donors who support SEF. She captured some of these students on film, watch it now. Please consider giving a gift today! Your gift puts the power of learning directly in the hands of students.
For example, Hannah (not her real name or her in the photo), a 10th-grade student, lacked the writing skills necessary to meet class requirements and “hated writing” at the beginning of the year. Hannah had no computer at home to use. With funds provided by donors like you and me, 15 Chromebooks were purchased for her class. Hannah began and continued to write EVERY day with the Chromebook. By the end of the year, Hannah excelled in class, passed her tests and enjoyed writing narrative essays.
With your help, more students like Hannah can reach their potential and gain the skills that will propel them through college and into a career. Across the district, teachers work tirelessly to create innovative ways like these that engage students in literacy, science, math, arts, music and other academic areas.
