The Southborough Education Foundation (SEF) would like to congratulate this year’s Red Apple Award Honorees. The Red Apple Awards are given by parents to school adminstrators, educators and staff members to show their appreciation. “We are thrilled at this year’s response. We raised almost $3500,” said Amy Yazdani, President of SEF. “Awards can be given all year but parents give them most often at holiday time and at the end of the school year.”

Parents can make a donation to SEF and certificates are printed with the student’s name are given as a gift to the teachers and staff members. The monies raised are used to fund educational grants throughout the year. Grants funded in years past include: an outdoor classroom, Intro to Coding thru STEM Legos/Dash & Dots Robots, Enhanced Circuit Labs for Physics and 1:1 iPads in the Physics Classroom.
