We Rocked Around the Clock at Prom!


On Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. we celebrated JSEF’s 8th Annual Prom — Rock Around the Clock. The year’s theme transported everyone back to the days of Grease and its iconic characters. Guests chose to be a rebel in the leather jacket, one of the Pink Ladies, or those who preferred poodle skirts and letter sweaters. We enjoyed comparing costumes of those who came as Sandy, Cha-Cha, Danny, or Kenickie. It was delightful. The historic Crockett Community Center was transformed into a 1950’s sock hop — the perfect backdrop for a night of great food and dancing from that era. It was another very successful fundraiser and all proceeds (through tickets sales, raffles baskets, and the silent auction) went to enhancing educational programs within the John Swett Unified School District!

Annual Giving Helps Youth Succeed


Thank you to all who have supported JSEF through our ongoing Annual Giving campaign! The Annual Giving Campaign is a fundraiser that helps preserve and enhance programs in our schools. Some families have chosen a single donation at the beginning of the school year, others have taken advantage of our easy monthly installment plan. Last year was our biggest year in terms of dollars raised since the inception of JSEF in 2006. Your support was overwhelming, and resulted in a successful year of investment in our district’s programs, materials and educational opportunities. With your help, we were able to have a huge impact on education and programs in all four of our district schools. There are always many requests from our teachers and school programs. Thank you for being as generous as you have been.

As a resident of Crockett, Rodeo, Port Costa, or Hercules, you belong to a larger community that prides itself on a strong public school system. To maintain quality education our schools have come to depend on grants from the John Swett Education. Our students are growing and developing and they need all the support we can give. Your attention has helped the John Swett Unified School District to be a premier district that continues to offer enrichment programs and a full curriculum for our children. Your contribution, whether large or small, has had a direct impact--supporting our students and their education.
