Why does our SEM Community need your financial support?

Our students are attending one of the most honored and highest ranked schools in DISD and the Nation. We are a Title I school and we represent a diverse group of urban families who are committed to excellence and rigorous standards for our children. SEM is an extraordinary, innovative school that promotes the belief that STEM centered learning can transform traditional boundaries and open opportunities.

SEM PTSA Fundraising Philosophy

It is the mission of the SEM PTSA to enrich and enhance SEM resources that support our one of a kind Math and Engineering program.  Our fundraising philosophy directly supports our teachers and students.

SEM PTSA Fundraising Objectives

Each year, the PTSA board meets with faculty and staff to determine the most pressing needs which are not covered by DISD funding. Once prioritized, these are included in the fundraising goal for that year.  One year, we spent $6,786 for calculators and mathematic competitions.

2021-2022 SEM PTSA Fundraising Goal: $15,000

SEM is unique in that we need an army of volunteers, equally as important as monetary donations. We are an inclusive school, and volunteering is so highly valued because it is something all families can contribute.
