2015-2016 School Supply Drive
July 15 - September 25
A Gift For Teaching –Seminole (AGFT-S), a program under the Foundation for SCPS, provides free school and classroom supplies to every school in the district. Why the Foundation for SCPS and AGFT-Seminole? Our partnership between the school district and our free store operation enables us to identify those most in need. It also ensures that each student and teacher is given the school supplies and classroom tools needed for them to have a successful school day and productive school year! Our main focus is on schools that have children with the highest needs. We are inviting you to join others in our community to host or coordinate a school supply drive to support our efforts.
We NEED your help!

Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.
The theme for the 2015-2016 school year is Let Your Imagination Fly. Florida PTA information, instructions, entry information and materials can be found here:
