Lake Stevens education group thankful for $14,000 for its work

We are in the season of thanks and giving, we on the board of the Lake Stevens Education Foundation wish to offer our sincere thanks to those who supported our “YOU Make it Possible” annual breakfast, last month. Together, we raised more than $14,000 making it possible for teachers throughout our district to receive grant dollars to provide their students additional enrichment opportunities, 600 children ages birth to five to receive an age-appropriate book, monthly through our partnership with the Dolly Parton Library, and graduating seniors to receive scholarships to help pursue their education goals.

We really appreciate the support of our Lake Stevens community and our sponsors ACE Lake Stevens, Cornerstone General Contractors and Dykeman, Inc. Guests were treated to a delicious breakfast prepared and served by the LSHS Culinary Arts Program, entertainment by the LSHS Drama department, the Stevens Creek Elementary Marimba Band and teachers sharing their grant projects. Thank you.
