In partnership with the Unite! Washougal Community Coalition, the Washougal School District is the fiscal agent for a Drug Free Communities grant to fund substance abuse prevention work for youth in the Washougal community.
Special Thanks to the CW Community Chest for their unwavering support of our school district by providing funds for the “Principal’s Checkbook”. This grant has provided each principal funds to help any student in financial need to have access to activities, services or materials necessary for a quality education. The funds have been used for such diverse things as clothes, shoes, activity fees, emergency medical treatment, and haircuts. The Community Chest has just kicked off their fundraising efforts. Here is a link to their website if you would like to learn more about how to donate or about other great programs in the Washougal community this philanthropic group has supported. Yay for excellent community partners who care about kids!
WSD has been awarded a Pre-K inclusion grant worth $20,000. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) grant aligns with the state’s goals of prioritizing inclusive practices in early childhood learning as well as the K-12 system.
A portion of the grant money was used to purchase materials to support inclusionary practices in our preschool classrooms.
Each year, the Washougal Schools Foundation awards classroom grants and mini-grants to fund innovative projects and learning activities in our schools and classrooms. You can learn more about the foundation and the grants by visiting their website.
