What we fund NOW using last year’s totals:
At the September 5, 2017 School Board meeting, MEF had the privilege to present Millbrae Elementary School District with our community’s donation raised during the 2016-2017 school year: $384,444. This is the largest donation that we have ever been able to give to the school district!
Because of YOUR support, Millbrae students explore the worlds of music and technology with skilled educators. All elementary students have music class, and 5th graders can learn to play band instruments. All elementary students have technology class, and middle school students and teachers have extensive tech exposure and coaching through the onsite media lab. Taylor has reinstated early-morning small ensemble and orchestral music instruction. Classroom teachers use increased professional development time to build interdisciplinary and collaborative programming to deepen our students’ learning.
Now, we ask you to help grow our vision!
MEF partners with your PTA or PTO and Millbrae Elementary School District to help make sure that every Millbrae student has access to enrichment programming. Our district is currently the lowest-funded elementary district in San Mateo County. It is up to our community to make sure that Millbrae students get the education they deserve! Help us imagine the possibilities, and then make them a reality.
Just imagine if your child had…
- More Arts enrichment
- More Physical Education to help with focus during academics and build healthy lifestyles
- More and deeper enrichment in science, technology, engineering and math, to help build curiosity and skills to boost success academically and in the future workforce
These kinds of programming and more are all possibilities…if we have the funding we need to provide them.
Our 2017-2018 fundraising goal is $500,000 – so that we can expand the enrichment available to students in Millbrae and take another step closer to providing our students with the very best education we possibly can!
