    Teacher Tribute Honoree Kerry Dashnaw

    Newhall Elementary School



    The most important thing I do everyday is … inspire and love my students.  When children sense and have confidence that they are loved and cherished, their hearts open to the learning process and they take ownership of their education.

    What We Do

    We work together with the many facets of our community to bridge the gap that has been created by lack of state and national funding of our local public schools. Every year we grow stronger in our ability to fill the needs of our students and teachers through our programs and events that support and promote educational success.


    Read With Me!


    The SCV Education Foundation believes literacy is fundamental for educational and life skills success. Our volunteers work directly with struggling readers to improve their literacy skills. Learn More                        

    Bag of Books: In areas where students have no or low access to books outside school, this program allows students to take home a set of books each week to read on their own and with their families.   Learn More 


    Teacher Grants

    Teacher_with_tablet.pngEach year the Education Foundation awards thousands of dollars in materials to local public school educators for classroom, school and district wide programs to enhance the educational experience for students and teachers. These funds pave the way for new programs and add support to existing programs in the areas that include language arts, science, technology, art, and music. Learn More  




    scholarship_winners.pngThe SCV Education Foundation awards scholarships to Wm. S. Hart District graduating high school seniors who aspire to enter the education field. Eligibility: Graduates entering any college as a full time student in pursuit of a four-year degree in education are eligible. This includes students who plan to attend a community college first. Learn More
