$1 Student Tag Day
Please send $1 in with your participating child for the Holiday Helper outreach project.
On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, known globally as #givingtuesday, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. This #givingtuesday, we are asking SEES families if they have not already done so, to consider giving to the 100 for 100 Campaign. To make a gift today or on #givingtuesday, please visit http://www.seeschool.com/community-life/support-sees/.
In addition to the 100 for 100 Campaign, we also have a number of scholarships and funds that rely on the support of SEES families and our surrounding community. More information on these opportunities for giving are available on our website or by contacting our Advancement Office.
