NSF raises $208,000 at All in for Kids event

Earlier this month, the Northshore Schools Foundation (NSF) gave potential donors the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the new North Creek High School, set to open this fall.

The tours of the new school were part of the NSF’s annual All in for Kids event, one of its biggest fundraisers of the year. This year, the NSF raised $208,000.

The proceeds will go to a variety of initiatives across the Northshore School District (NSD), including innovative classroom grants and student scholarships.

“We have so many important things to do for kids,” NSF Executive Director Carmin Dalziel said.

In the past, the All in for Kids event has typically been a luncheon, but this year, the NSF expanded it to include a breakfast option for those who couldn’t make it to the luncheon. More than 700 people attended this year’s event.

The luncheon included remarks from several NSD students and teachers, along with NSF leadership and NSD Superintendent Michelle Reid.

“It’s an amazing thing to have so many people here in one place supporing kids in our community,” Reid said.

The event also included the formal presentation of the Innovative Educator Award to Trudy Swain, the home arts and consumer science teacher at Northshore Junior High School. One of the reasons Swain received the award, which comes with a $2,000 grant, was for her work in starting a community garden with her students.

“The grant is going to keep us smiling and working for many years to come,” she said at the All in for Kids luncheon.
