SMMEF at All Schools

If you have attended a Back to School event or PTA meeting this year, you have probably seen a SMMEF staff or Board member there!  We have attended almost every event in order to promote the District's Vision for Student Success and answer your questions.

Student Donates to the Vision for Student Success

Asa Colwell, a first-grader at Franklin Elementary, has decided to hold monthly lemonade stands and donate his earnings to the Vision for Student Success.  Asa's mother, Dana, has agreed to match Asa's earnings every month.  We recently received a check from Asa's first lemonade stand and are proud to list Asa on the Honor Roll of Giving. 


We are honored to have donors of all ages.  Thank you, students!
