Math Review - Fun Ways to Get Back to the Basics
Does your child need to brush up on their math skills before school starts? Students in this camp will feel more confident returning to school better prepared. The class will be offered the week of August 6-10. There is a class for incoming 5th/6th graders and incoming 7th/8th graders. Please see the San Carlos Park and Rec Guide (page 14) for more information on how to sign up for the class. This class is taught by a veteran Math Teacher.



What does my SCEF donation fund at my school?
SCEF's mission is to provide equity among all San Carlos schools and to bridge the gap between what the State provides and the needs of our students.  Your donations to SCEF are used to fund key programs at your school.  SCEF dollars help keep libraries open and staffed, underwrite the cost of counselors to provide emotional support and teach cooperation & citizenship, support music in the classrooms with Music for Minors and promote a well-rounded curriculum with regular field trips.  SCEF dollars are used at each school to purchase technology devices and fund Tech Associates who support your child’s safe and effective use of technology.  In addition, each school Principal receives a grant every year from SCEF to fund school specific needs. 

Please make your donation by June 30, 2018 to ensure that all these programs continue next year at your child’s school. Make your donation today on our site.
