The San Juan Public Schools Foundation earned accolades from the state's association of public school administrators last week for its contributions to public education and for outstanding leadership.
On May 2, the Washington Association of School Administrators presented the Public Schools Foundation with its "Community Leadership Award".
The foundation raises thousands of dollars each year, through fundraising activities and events such as its annual Phone-a-Thon and the Knowledge Bowl, for direct classroom support for San Juan Island students. After nearly 20 years of providing financial support, the foundation is nearing a $1 million milestone of donations.
"The school district gives a heartfelt 'thank you' to these volunteers who dedicate their time and talent for education," said school district Superintendent Rick Thompson.
