"If you're one of those people who feel strongly your school district should spend money and make decisions, now's your chance to have a say-so. The North Kitsap School District is hosting a series of community forums at each school over the next few weeks (the forums for Vinland and Breidablik will both be held at Vinland). The forums are designed to get your reaction to a series of facilities recommendations developed by a task force of citizen volunteers. We'll also be running a series of articles in the Herald that highlight what some of the issues are with the school district's facilities. "

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:37PM

"POULSBO - The transition from grade school to junior high can be difficult. There are new classrooms, new books, and new faces. So, Poulsbo Junior High is doing something different. A week ago they packed more than 200 incoming students on buses, drove them up to Island Lake Camp (along with a group of parents, educators and student volunteers), and had a retreat. What we were trying to do, said assistant principal Tony Bainbridge, is accomplish a lot of different things before school starts. The retreat had been something that Principal Gregg Epperson has wanted to do for a while, Bainbridge said. It became a reality Sept. 12. "
