Thanks to those of you who have already donated to the United Way fund! If you are planning to donate and have not yet done so, please return your donation form to Sariann or Eldene before Friday, November 20 to be eligible for the next drawing, when names of those who have donated so far will go into a hat for a drawing for an Applebee's card. Remember, your donation goes to help fund many local organizations that benefit students ~ and you can designate which organization you would like your donation to go toward, if you prefer. There will drawings for more gift cards, with the final big drawing at our Staff Christmas Luncheon on December 18!

NCESD Educational Foundation Teacher Grant awards

The 2015 ESD Foundation Teacher Classroom Grant awards were presented October 29 at Eastmont Junior High. Thanks to the generous donations of individuals and organizations, 85 teacher grants were awarded through the selection process and through adoptions by individuals/ organizations and funding through school districts. It is inspiring to see how these awards continue to grow each year - beginning six years ago with eight grants awarded and now increased over ten times!
