Robotics Teams in Action
Our robotics team, Iron Reign, recently completed a competition in Wylie. We were on the alliance that won Second Place AND won the PTC Creo Design Award for the work the kids did on 3-D design and the robot build. Imperial Robotics, our partner team at SEM, also did a fantastic job, and they won the Connect Award!
The PTSA at SEM thinks fundraising should be painless! That's why we like the Write-a-Check Campaign because you only have to write one check and you're done! There’s no selling involved and 100% of every dollar supports SEM students. Your donation is used to provide special programs, activities and events to support the academic and social needs of our students and staff. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today! Please use our on-line form to indicate the amount of your donation and proceed to checkout.
Also, another way to increase contributions may be through company matching donations. Does your company match donations? If so, enter "yes". We can provide assistance, if needed, in making the application to your employer:
Schoola Resale Clothing Fundraiser
Our Schoola clothes fundraising drive is in full swing.
This fundraiser will help clean our closets of clothes we’ve outgrown and support our children at the same time! Schoola collects gently used adult, teen and children’s clothes and sells them online. We’ll receive 40% of the profits which helps to fund programs SEM programs.
You can help by donating clean clothing in, new or like new condition and place them in the bin which will be located in front of the SEM office. You can also help spread the word, encouraging others to donate!
Thanks for your support! We look forward to another great year!
