The Southborough Education Foundation held its big annual fundraiser last month. The group asked me to share their thanks to those who helped make the event a success.

Every spring, SEF pits teachers and staff from Southborough schools against each other in family friendly competitions. For the second year running, the theme was Family Feud. The charity shared:

Southborough Education Foundation (SEF) would like to thank all our supporters for another successful and entertaining evening at the 2nd annual Family Feud Night last month! Urban Circus Events hosted an energetic, fun evening full of laughs and smiles for all who attended. Thanks to the generous support we received, money raised will be used to fund innovative grants for Southborough’s elementary and middle schools, as well as Algonquin Regional High School.

SEF Thanks donors to the silent auction and basket raffleWe want send a very special thank you to all the Finn and Woodward staff who enthusiastically participated and dressed up in creative costumes! This year’s Family Feud Winners were the “Seuss-She!” with Woodward team members Amy Benford, Jeannie Bogart, Anges Cammarata, Mary Ellen Duggan, and Diane Georger. Once again, costumes did not disappoint, but the best costume award went to the “The Shark Family” with Finn team members Kristen Bisnette, Jocelyn Bossart, Josh Boule, Lauren Dayotas, and Stephanie Rooney. . .

Thank you to our sponsors Doug Curtiss Landscape Contractors, Inc. and New England Center for Children (NECC), as well as our many generous raffle and silent auction donors.

While we’re thanking people. . .

Thanks and congrats to SEF volunteers and the good sports from Finn and Woodward schools for putting on a fun night of entertainment for young students and their families. (Finn especially showed its school spirit by stepping up with four teams!)

The fundraiser helps support SEF’s grant program. Over the past 20 years, SEF has provided over $400,000 in grants to Southborough’s Public Schools.

The grants encourage teachers to pilot new creative ideas. Many have evolved into some of the more popular and used programs within our schools. Examples include:

Finn: Climbing wall, Stand-up workstations, Whiteboards & Family garden

Woodward: ‘Root Robots’ for coding, Wake Up and Workout, Lexia for reading

Neary: IXL, Equipment for ‘Friday Farewell’, Materials for school store

Trottier: 21st Century technology classroom, Green screen & Infrared thermal imaging camera

Algonquin: Radio Station, Writing center & Podcasting equipment
