Join Team Kid!

Joining Together for Student Success

A PTA/SCEF Campaign to Support our Schools

This Fall, more than ever, our great San Carlos Schools need us. Let’s come together and create the best experience possible for our eager students and outstanding teachers.

Join the TeamKid movement! By giving to your school and SCEF, you’ll be supporting the local-level funding that bridges the gap between the needs of San Carlos Schools, and our CA state funding.

Our goal is 100% participation, so please donate at whatever level is possible for you.
