WE GIVE BECAUSE
WHILE A PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION IS FREE,
AN ENRICHED EDUCATION IS NOT

 

We have chosen Highlands Elementary School

because we want the best public school education for our children. Contributions to the SMART fund are used entirely to fund enrichment programs and services for our students. SMART represents the primary focus areas of Highlands PTA’s  fundraising efforts: Science, Math, Art, Reading and Technology. These areas are our primary focus, but we also support other activities to support the whole child. The SMART fund is

managed in conjunction with other fundraising efforts by the Highlands Elementary School PTA. The SMART fund differs from the San Mateo Foster City Education Foundation (SMFCEF) which is a non-profit organization that raises dollars to support District-wide programs that the State of California does not fund.
