Council okays Poulsbo Place

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:38PM

"In a vote so confusing that Security Properties officials had to ask what had happened, the Poulsbo City Council approved the plat for the first 10 new homes in Poulsbo Place. The approval won't be final, however, until SPI sets aside $550,000 to guarantee construction of the Iverson Street road extension. Steve Dymoke, vice-president of SPI expects the road funding issue to be resolved this week, with certificates of occupancy to be issued shortly after that by the city. If that all happens, owners of the new homes could be moving in by Halloween. The council's approval came following a week of solid progress by SPI on a list of 43 punch list items that had caused the council to delay approval of the plat last week. Tom Curren, SPI president, Mayor Donna Jean Bruce and City Engineer John Stephenson met during the week to resolve issues and move the project toward approval. "

Donations mean improvements for district

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:38PM

"SUQUAMISH - Suquamish Elementary principal Joe Davalos has seen changes in his school over the years, and many of those changes have been for the good. Two years ago, the school could afford to expand the playground. Last year, they purchased televisions and VCRs for half the classrooms. Next year, Davalos said, they hope to do the same with the remaining classrooms. We're one of the few schools that doesn't have TVs and VCRs in every room, Davalos said. We just bought them when we could and pushed them around on carts. The money for the TVs and VCRs last year came from the school's PTSA, and that money was donated by parents and individuals. It's always from varied sources, Davalos said. People who really have a sense of what it is we're trying to do try to contribute in any way they can. He added, I feel very fortunate. But Suquamish Elementary is not the only fortunate school. Every North Kitsap school receives money and items from donations. "

Making the grade - seventh grade

  • 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. "
