ESMEF Annual Events
The ESM Education Foundation Golf tournament is held the second Sunday in September at the Links at Erie Village in East Syracuse. This tournament draws some serious, and some not so serious, golfers throughout the ESM community and beyond. Many of the golfers are district employees, community business partners and, of course, parents of ESM Students.
Chaired by the Ed Foundation Treasurer, Pat Federico, the golf tournament is the Foundations most profitable fund raiser.
The Foundation's Annual Golf Tournament will be on Sunday, 9/8/19 at 10:00 am (new earlier time!). Below are the forms to sign up for the event, and for sponsors. Feel free to pass these forms on to anyone whom you think might be interested in attending or sponsoring. The Golf tournament is always a great time and raises funds that go right back to ESM in the form of grants.

2016 Spooktacular: Saturday October 29, 2016 ❗️ CANCELLED❗️ 12:00 -3:00 at ESM HS
Each October the Education Foundation hosts a family friendly "Spooktacular" held in the High School Gymnasiums and sponsored by DECA. One gym is transformed in to a haunted house designed and organized by the Spartan Stage drama students. Depending on the age of the kids entering the Haunted House there are different "levels of scariness" through which they are guided.
In the other gym, a variety of games and activities for kids and their parents are designed and run by ESM High School students and teachers. Several costume contest's are held during the afternoon and kids can "trick or treat" throughout the day as well!
The Spooktacular is a great community event brining parents and kids together in a safe environment for Halloween. Contact ESMEF for details.
Dear Community Member:
