  • Everyone was excited for the Harlem Wizards game. Thanks to all the volunteers who made it happen, and special thanks to Mr. Harlan and the SFE Dream Team. The energetic participation from our principal, teachers and staff made the night. It sure looked like the 1,000+ attendees had fun.
  • Thanks to our SFE Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and all the students who created a family flag. Encourage your student to tell you about the flags that are decorating our walls as a creative representation of the diversity that makes SFE so special.
