Strong schools equal strong communities

As we were rallying last year to keep a beloved elementary school librarian, I remember reading about the Bainbridge Schools Foundation. They were providing funding to keep teachers in their district in spite of budget cuts.
I wondered why our community didn’t have a foundation to support NK schools? I recently found out that we do! The North Kitsap Schools Foundation jumped into full view this month with mailings for its annual fundraising drive.
We all benefit from strong schools. They underpin a thriving community, the type in which we all want to live. Let’s get behind the dedicated board of our foundation and see what we can build together.
I encourage business members and families alike to consider a donation at nkschoolsfoundation.org. Help establish NK Schools Foundation as a source of opportunity for the students in our district. Strong schools equal strong communities!
