Front Porch: Edmonds schools foundation gets new name

The Edmonds Public Schools and Alumni Foundation has changed its name to the Foundation for Edmonds School District. The name change seeks to simplify and clarify the group's goals following a merger with a district alumni group.
The foundation's new tagline is “Shaping students' futures,” and there's a new logo as well.
The foundation was first founded in 1984 by then-Superintendent Hal Reasby following two bond-measure failures. The group is run by an all-volunteer board and provides money for classroom grants, after-school study programs, scholarships and special events. Learn more and donate at
