THE SUNSET HILLS EDUCATION FOUNDATION
The Sunset Hills Education Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding essential academic resources and programs here at Sunset Hills. Our beginning of school year fundraising campaign is underway - Support Our Academic Resources (S.O.A.R.). Please contribute to our SOAR Annual Giving Campaign. Even with diminishing state funds, our school continues its tradition of excellence. The financial burden to ensure a well-rounded educational environment increasingly falls on our community and private donations. Your tax deductible donations are necessary to ensure the quality education our children deserve. Our “SOAR” annual giving campaign flyer went home with the first day packets. Your support is urgently needed to provide the school with the following staff positions: Computer Resource Assistant, 2 IMPACT teachers and 3 Instructional Assistants. Info can be found on our website - www.seagullparents.com
