Letters to the Editor

Thanks to businesses that support Community Foundation | Letter

Editor,

The Community Foundation for Coupeville Public Schools would like to send a huge thank you to the businesses who have participated in our Dine Out 4 Kids and Shop 4 Kids fundraising program — Ciao!, The Honey Bear, Aqua Gifts, Christopher’s, Front Street Grill, The Knead and Feed and Kapaw’s Ice Kreme who will share the proceeds of ice cream sales 11:30 a.m. to 5:50 p.m. on Thursday, June 12 – the last day of school!

Over the past year, your generosity has allowed us to add a third round of Mini Grant Awards and in all three cases we were able to fund the requests in full!

In addition we have been able to maintain a special fund to support students, as the need arises at the discretion of the principal, at each school. And if that was not enough, we also were able to award three scholarships to graduating seniors.

The foundation board has been thrilled and humbled by your gifts and the participation of the entire community in these events.

None of this would have been possible without you.

We are truly fortunate to live in a community that responds so enthusiastically to our young people and recognizes the need for educational support. Have a wonderful summer and watch for a “Back to School” event to get us started in the fall!

Once again, thanks for making our year so beneficial for our kids!

Mendy McLean-Stone and

CFCPS Board of Directors
