A New American Flag for South Colby
A big thank you to the Wheeler family for their donation of a new American flag to our school. While home on leave from San Diego, Chief Wheeler was able to donate the flag, which flew on his previous ship.
Federal Impact Aid Survey Coming Home Soon
We are requesting your assistance in identifying federally-connected students for our Impact Aid federal grant program. This grant provides funds to local school districts that are financially impacted by federal activities, such as active duty military, employment at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, or any of the local military bases. Each year, South Kitsap School District receives significant funding from this program. These funds become part of the district’s general operating budget and are critical to supporting our students.
The survey to support our request for Impact Aid funds will be sent home with students on Tuesday November 1, 2016. Your participation in this process is greatly appreciated! Additional information about the program will be provided with the survey. We ask that you complete the form, in full, and return it to school on or before Friday, November 4, 2016.
The Federal Impact Aid grant program is requesting additional employer information this year, so please read your form carefully.
If you have any questions about the Impact Aid survey, please contact Landa Fuchs in Business and Support Services at (360) 874-7013 or Fuchs@skitsap.wednet.edu
