About SEF

The Shrewsbury Education Foundation (SEF) works to stimulate, strengthen and support the creation and implementation of innovative educational programs and enrichment activities that benefit students of the Shrewsbury Public Schools.

Since its inception in 1992, SEF has awarded over $250,000 in grants to Shrewsbury Public schools for innovative programs reaching students at every level, from preschool to high school.

Through its all-volunteer effort supported by charitable contributions, SEF fills a vital gap for Shrewsbury students. SEF grants allow dedicated educators create new learning vehicles that cannot be supported as financial resources have tightened. SEF grants encourage creative approaches to educating the whole child—further meeting their intellectual, psychosocial and health needs.

Some recent programs that SEF has funded include:
• Floral Street School Goes Green at Floral Street School
• Interest Based Workshops at Oak Middle School
• Language Through Lyrics for preschool
• iRespond Clickers & Audio Books at the High School
• Informational Backpacks for schools throughout the district
• Bringing The World Into Our Classrooms at Paton School
• Magical Magnification at Coolidge Elementary School
• The Nuts and Bolts of Comprehension at Beal Early Childhood Center
• Lively Letter Learners for Kindergarden
• Coffee Cart at Sherwood Middle School

Tax deductible contributions can be sent to:  Shrewsbury Education Foundations, PO Box 282, shrewsbury 01545.
