Every August for the past seven years, school leaders in the Everett School District — principals, assistant principals, managers, directors — volunteer to help a local nonprofit organization or community project.

This year’s projects included sorting and cleaning sale items for the Assistance League of Everett thrift store, landscaping at the Everett Boys and Girls Club, packing grooming packets for Assisance League’s Operation School Bell students, and washing windows, painting, pressure washing and landscaping at Mari’s Place. Staff also helped with the Everett Public Schools Foundation’s Stuff the Bus for Kids school supply drive.
