On July 29th, SEF board members along with Mayor Katjana Ballentyne, Councilor Kristen Strezzo, School Committee Member Ilana Krepchin, and SPS's Assistant Superintendent of Academics Equity Dr. Jessica Boston Davis attended the End of Program Ceremony for Somerville's Calculus Project. The mission of the Calculus Project summer program is to "use research supported strategies to increase the representation and success of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and low income students in advanced mathematics." We are so lucky to have such a great program in our city! We are so proud of the participating students who worked so hard to get ahead in math and had fun while doing it!
The Somerville Education Foundation was at ArtBeat 2022 in Davis Square! Some of our board members were there spreading the word about the great work that SEF has been doing! We appreciate the interest you showed in the Somerville Education Foundation and loved the creativity of all the beautiful bracelets that were made!
This summer, the Somerville and Cambridge Chambers of Commerce sponsored a Taste '21 fundraiser event. Diners donated $30 to receive a Dining Passport. 100% of the Dining Passport proceeds directly supported local restaurant workers and nonprofits. SEF was chosen as one of their nonprofit recipients and was awarded $5,000! We are so grateful for this generous donation!
