All in For Kids Luncheon is April 6 | Letter

Are you attending the largest annual Northshore event this Spring?

Are you attending the largest annual Northshore event this Spring? More than 500 people are scheduled to attend this key community event on April 6. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Northshore Schools Foundation is hosting their annual All in for Kids Luncheon at the Lynnwood Convention Center to feature students working on readiness for their lives as supported by the Foundation.

The Northshore SchoolsFoundation strives to make your tax dollars go farther for the students of the Northshore School District. As the gap in WA State funding for Education continues to require local funding and nine years have passed since the McCleary suit was filed, the Foundation works to bridge the gap and makes a difference in the lives of more than 20,000 students.

My son struggled in school and had a hard time making connections with others, but when he was introduced to robotics as a junior high student as part of the NSD’s Career and Technical Education Program, his entire life turned around! Through robotics he had the opportunity for hands-on learning, science and math which are all his strengths. He, in his own words, “found his people” and a passion for his life and career. The pivotal transformation to become a life-long learner is what we seek for all our students.

The Northshore Schools Foundation brings access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to all students. In addition, the Foundation grants funds to the Northshore School District to support curriculum enhancements, innovative classroom grants, a student scholarship and scholarships for teachers seeking National Board Teacher Certification. Our five funding priorities are: Literacy and arts, teacher excellence, STEM, advances and disadvantaged learners and health and enrichment.

There are more kids out there just like mine. You know how fast time flies… every year another group of students graduate. The time is now to get behind our students. It takes each and every one of you to make a difference in the lives of our students and community. You can change lives one student at a time with your support of the Northshore Schools Foundation. Please register for the All in for Kids Luncheon at NorthshoreSchoolsFoundation.org; donations are also gratefully accepted in lieu of attendance.

Thank you for making a difference.

Michelle Morris, Co-President of the Northshore Schools Foundation
