The SES Foundation exists to help raise money that can be spent by our school on staffing–teachers and educational support staff.  This all-volunteer effort raises money in several ways:

  • The Back-to-School Ask – We have a line item as part of the general Back-to-School Ask that is dedicated to the Foundation
  • The SES Social & Auction
  • End-of-Year Appeal – We make a direct ask to our community when we have a clearer idea of what our staffing needs will be for the coming school year and what funds are needed to help “bridge the gap” between what we will need and what we will likely receive from PPS
  • Community Sponsorships – We are working to build relationships with area businesses that can help us raise needed funds from community allies

You can always make a direct contribution to the SES Foundation through All Hands Raised, the Portland Public Schools Foundation at:
