SUPPORT STUDENTS AND LOCAL BUSINESSES
DINE OUT SEPT. 8TH
by Shannon Singleton and Mary Bryant
North Kitsap Schools Foundation is having its most popular event of the year, Dine Out for NK Schools, on Thursday. Sept. 8. This is the fifth year for the fundraiser, which invites community members to dine out all day at participating eateries in Kingston, Suquamish and Poulsbo. Restaurants donate a portion of the day’s proceeds to the foundation.
North Kitsap Schools Foundation is a non-profit organization that brings the community together to help fund the best possible learning opportunities for all North Kitsap students. During the past 4 years, NKSF has awarded more than $170,000 in grants to NKSD teachers and schools to provide enriched learning for our students. Nearly $80,000 during 2015-2016 purchased technology, educational materials, software, field trips and teacher training to support Science, Career and Technical Education, Social Studies, Reading, Math and Music/Art instruction, to name a few. Thanks to community support and partnerships with NKSF, KHS Advanced Placement Chemistry classes used new, hand-held computers to gather and graph data during experiments. Incoming 6th graders to KMS will explore hands-on science and technology at the Pacific Science Center on a fall field trip. Gordon Elementary teachers received training in techniques to help students self-manage emotions and problem solve social situations.
Be part of the community-wide effort to support an exceptional education for NK students. On Sept. 8th, dine out at these Kingston locations: Filling Station, Grub Hut, Mora Iced Creamery, Puerto Vallarta and Westside Pizza. For a complete list of participating restaurants in North Kitsap and for more information on ways to support the North Kitsap Schools Foundation, visit www.nkschoolsfoundation.org.
