Last year and again this school year, we have watched the COVID-19 outbreak disrupt the way we live every day, how we do business but most of all how we educate our children. Although we do not know the full impact, we know that our student and teachers need us. Most of all we knew that we on their behalf would need each and everyone of you. As the state continues to decrease or change funding for public education, our role in expanding educational opportunities for Sanger ISD students is increasingly more important. Our success depends on the generosity of individuals and businesses like you. Join us in our vision of excellence for your student, your grandchild, your neighborhood children, Your community! COVID 19 has directly impacted the Sanger Education Foundation and Sanger ISD in many ways. Yet it will NOT STOP US from our work and your passion in supporting Public Education in Sanger, Texas.

We are excited to see what we are close to being a fully funded endowment the potential of having a perpetual source of funds for kids with Autism in Sanger ISD.

“THANK YOU for supporting my first year at TAMS.TAMS has been a rewarding experience filled with unlimited opportunities to grow. I have been exposed to many challenging and exciting opportunities throughout the 2015-2016 school year. In addition to already completing my freshman year of college, I have become involved in particle accelerator physics research. In January I joined the Ion Beam Modification and Analysis Laboratory of the Physics Department at UNT, under Dr. Duncan Weathers, Ph. D. In Dr. Weather’s research lab I have the opportunity to come in and work collaboratively with doctorate students and professional faculty in the physics department, and I will also be conducting independent research over the Summer of 2016, investigating the surface composition of candidate alloys for use in the liquid metal ion sources of particle accelerators. Thank you again for the support.”

The Foundation provides the funding for many of these opportunities and experiences for our students.
