Without the support of our SOPA families, SOEC students would not have our wonderful enrichment programs. The Tiger Fund bridges the gap between the basic, minimum funding provided by LAUSD and the essential resources, services, and equipment necessary to promote the highly successful learning environment at Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter.
Simply put, public funding alone does not provide for enrichment programs. That’s why we need the Tiger Fund to provide our children with a well-rounded education filled Science lab and instructor, a Computer lab and instructor, a Music Teacher, Arts Teachers, a Garden Ranger Program, Reading and Education licenses, and so much more! Your Tiger Fund donation directly goes to pay for these teachers’ salaries and that’s why your donation, in any amount, is critical.
In the spirit of giving and gratitude we would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks for all the donations to our Tiger Fund thus far, but we have not yet reached our goal. If you haven't done so already, please pledge below.
FROM HOME OR SCHOOL…WE’LL GET THROUGH
While the Sherman Oaks Parent Association (SOPA) recognizes that many families may have been financially impacted by Covid-19, we are hopeful that when our students return to campus full-time in the 2020-2021 school year, they can continue to benefit from all our wonderful enrichment programs.
With this in mind, we’ve decided to continue our fundraising efforts this year because the subsidies that our school receives do NOT cover some of the basic services and enrichment programs that Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter provides. It is up to families to fill this financial gap.
All donations are extremely appreciated and are strictly voluntary, but we ask you to consider the value of all the extra enrichment programs and additional classroom support SOPA offers that are funded purely through donation. These programs help make Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter the incredible school it is and one of the reasons you chose this school for your child. Please join us and support our efforts to keep our Computer, Art, Music, Science Lab, Garden programs, among many others, at our school! Together we can support our community! Our students and teachers are thankful for your support!
