The SEF provides innovative grants for individual teachers and for the central school district.
The power library initiative helped upgrade each school library with technological and non-technological materials. Thats an example of a district grant," said Trustee Rose Corbett. "Individual grants are for things like buying iPads for the kindergarten, or funding the seventh grade art program so they could make African art masks.
Each year the SEF conducts a number of fundraisers, such as a golf outing, a student variety show, a carnival night and a basketball game between the Harlem Wizards and Somers school faculty.
Thursday nights event will feature a delicious buffet in addition to the variety of wines for tasting, furnished by Somers Discount Wine & Spirits. Individual bottles or cases will be available at a 15 percent discount.
