Signature Programs Overview
Below is a collection of programs that reflect the various ways we support the classrooms in Santa Fe ISD.
While our most widely recognized programs may be our Grants for Great Ideas and Classroom Wish Lists, we are constantly working to build our other programs detailed below.
STREAM & Robotics is growing rapidly with vast interest and much support of our community, families, and businesses. STREAM includes Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Math. We are working to expand Robotics from our Junior High to our High School students this 2020-21 school year, and eventually expand to our 3rd-5th grades. To expand to the High School and to the Elementary grades 3-5, we need $208,000!
End-of-Year Excellence Awards allow us to recognize our teachers and staff at the end of every school year! Teachers of the Year awards, Support Staff Person of the Year awards, Substitute Teachers of the Year awards, Service Pin awards, and Perfect Attendance Awards all recognize our teachers and staff who go above and beyond while enjoying a program and breakfast.
The Foundation assists local donors with an application process and with awarding Student Scholarships annually. We are grateful for the individuals and businesses in our community who generously step up to provide these scholarships for our Seniors!
Our Legacy of Learning Fund will help to provide a continuing and sustainable funding source to expand and enhance quality public education now and for generations to come by supporting our endowment program. Funding that is not subject to the economy, natural disasters, or a pandemic. Our staff can visit with you on the details of how these options might help you leave a legacy of learning for the future. Strong schools build strong communities. They help protect property values and strengthen community ties. Our public schools are an integral part of what we cherish. We need all parents, grandparents, alumni, business owners, and all of our residents to help us in this effort to fund $20,000 by the end of 2020. Ways to give include gifts of cash, check, or credit card. Gifts of stock, matching gifts, life insurance, retirement plans, and/or creating a Life/Legacy Giving Plan.
Thank you for supporting and strengthening our schools.
Cultivate. Nurture. Ignite. Inspire.
