  • February 2020: Citizens For Education

    Posted by Elle Warmuth on 2/20/2020

    Superintendent Dent and the School Board honored Citizens For Education, the non-profit volunteer group who championed the yes vote for the District’s two measures on the February ballot: EP&O Levy and Capital Projects Bond.

    We very much thank our Citizens For Education Committee (C4E), who was instrumental in securing the win for the levy. The Citizens Committee understood the critical nature of passing this levy and they spent their own time volunteering to champion the yes vote.

    C4E also worked extremely hard in helping to pass our Capital Projects Bond. The committee never wavered in their passion and commitment to get both of these measures passed. They saw what’s at the heart of the vote – our students, their kids and future generations to come.

    We thank Citizens For Education for their contribution and successful effort in passing our levy. C4E committee

    January’s Golden Apple Community Partner Award goes to Jill Labrecque, who is an invaluable partner in helping our students get to school.

    As a truancy probation officer with Pierce County, Jill works with students and their families to overcome barriers that prevent regular school attendance, a critical component to academic success.

    Whatever the situation, she works behind the scenes to come up with solutions and provide access to resources in a supportive environment.

    We thank Jill for her grace, heart and commitment in serving students and helping us achieve 100% graduation. Attendance matters and so do our partners!
