A Night of Stars 2013 - Another Smashing Success!

This evening, I had the pleasure of attending another successful A Night of Stars event sponsored by the Spaulding Education Fund. This is a wonderful evening that provides an opportunity the community to come together and for many of our students to showcase their talents. The proceeds of the event go to support the efforts of one of our key community partners, the Spaulding Education Fund.

I can’t thank Spaulding enough for the support it has provided to the schools. Over the past ten years, they have donated over $850,000 in support of our students and teachers. From assistive technology and iPads to teacher training and student enrichment, Spaulding has been a valuable partner in our efforts to continuously improve the quality of our academic program.

The Spaulding Education Fund (SEF) is a private, community-based organization that makes strategic investments in compelling educational initiatives in the Manchester Essex Regional School District (MERSD). Programs funded by SEF advance and enrich learning and bring excitement and enthusiasm to our classrooms. These initiatives support curriculum not currently funded by the district’s budget.
