New Board Member Nominations Open!

The Somerset Elementary School Foundation is a 501c3 organization, consisting of nominated parents and community leaders, along with the principal, PTA co-presidents, and a teacher representative. The Board raises funds from parents and the community for a variety of projects including ones that focus on academic achievement, capital improvements and classroom technology, and helping those in our community most in need. 

In the last 9 months alone, the Foundation has provided over $25,000 in groceries and supplies to Somerset families in need of extra support during the pandemic, an additional several thousands in food scarcity support for families in other MoCo schools. Additionally, we have approved $26,000 in funding for private tutoring and spots at academic hubs for SES students who have fallen behind academically, and approved another $15,000 for non-SES students in MoCo who are suffering the same academic set-backs. 

The SES Foundation has several open positions for board members, starting service in May of 2021. We enthusiastically invite interested candidates to apply.  To learn more about the role and responsibilities, check out the position description on the Foundation website

Please submit via email a short paragraph or statement of interest to: somersetmdfoundation@gmail.com.  All interested candidates will have a short meet and greet Zoom meeting with a SES Foundation member before board members are selected.
