   Cougar Education Fund



August 2013


Emma C. Smith Elementary School Families,


The Smith Cougar Education Fund (the “Cougar Fund”) was created to fund Instructional Aides /Techs supporting specific educational programs which are unfortunately no longer funded by our school district or the state due to budget cuts.  A community-funded program, the Cougar Fund supports resources that maximize the quality of education at Emma C. Smith Elementary School which are critical to our children's education and enable continued academic growth.

 Why  The Cougar Fund  Is Needed

The Smith Elementary staff believe that all of our students deserve individualized instruction in computer technology, reading intervention, maintain current library hours, and study resources.  The Cougar Fund will raise money to pay for the aides who support the listed programs.

Computer Lab (grades K - 5)

Smith School Library Hours (grades K - 5)

Intervention Academy (grades K - 5)

These are essential programs for the academic growth and success of our students.

The Cougar Fund Aids YOUR Child and Our Teachers

Each and every child benefits from the Cougar Fund, regardless of academic standing. Our teachers and classes at Smith Elementary rely heavily on these aides and their enriched programs.


YOU Can Help!

Our goal is to raise $60,000 to retain these programs. To achieve this goal, we are seeking 100% participation from Smith families through a tax deductible donation of $150 per family for the 2013/2014 school year.  No donation is too small and every gift is appreciated.  Please give what you can.  Please check with your employer for matching fund programs.


How To Help

Please complete the payment form and return, with donation, to your teacher or the school office. Checks payable to: Emma C. Smith Elementary-- Cougar Fund. Cash is also accepted.


The Smith Elementary School Staff appreciate your support.  We are a team and community working together to give our students the best.
