SOCES is #1 in Getting Students to College

In case you didn’t know it already, SOCES is the #1 school in LAUSD in getting our students to college.
From the Article:
Between 80% and 90% of Sherman Oaks CES graduates enroll in college each year, said Principal Martin Price. He attributes the high number to such factors as a college-going culture instilled from elementary school, students’ ability to take community college classes in high school, and tools like Naviance, software designed to help students with career and college planning.

PTSA’s Fall Fundraiser – Step It Up Kids!

Dear SOCES Families!

Our PTSA’s biggest fundraiser of the year starts today and we need your help!

We know that parents and students are busy, and that is why we want to make the fundraiser as EASY and SUCCESSFUL as possible. Our entire STEP IT UP fundraiser can be completed in TEN MINUTES or less! Yes, really!!!!

The most important thing you can do to support our school is to help your child complete the first night email campaign “Homework Assignment” that they will bring home from the assembly today.

To get our fundraiser off to a great start, we are asking each and every family to REGISTER and SEND OUT AT LEAST 10 EMAILS TONIGHT to friends and family, enlisting their support. Don’t forget to ADD YOURSELF so that you, too, can donate online!

All donations are processed via PayPal, so they are safe and secure, and the emails you send will only be used for this fundraiser (not saved for any other purpose). While you have until the end of our fundraiser to raise money and qualify for the various prizes and events, this First Night Email Homework Assignment will not only earn your child some fun BONUS PRIZES, but will help us get off to an amazing start!

Please visit:


We look forward to an incredible turn out, and thank you for making a difference in the lives of our students.


Martin Price, Principal
