Northshore Schools Foundation

Equity, Diversity & Social Justice Reading Materials for NSD students

Each year the Northshore Schools Foundation receives dozens of requests for books that are more representative of our world.  Our teachers and staff want books that reflect the students we serve and that address important issues of equity and social justice, and antiracism.

In February 2020, the Foundation's Board voted to provide all schools access to those resources by allocating up to $1000 for each school to purchase equity & diversity books or other items that are student-facing and in alignment with their racial equity plan.   

You can find out more about our work here: https://youtu.be/LrVSKX5TOnI

You can help us provide continued funding for these purchases by supporting this campaign. 

The funds raised in this campaign will be accessible by a grant process to the  Racial Educational and Justice team lead from each school in the district and can be used to update classroom and school libraries.

Panther Physical Education and Health

Help give our students a great year with the use sports equipment! There are many benefits of physical education in schools.  Increased time spent in physical education does not negatively affect students’ academic achievement, in fact, it enhances it. When students get physical education, they can:Increase their level of physical activity.Improve their grades and standardized test scores.Stay on-task in the classroom.

These items would help the our physical education program in multiple ways. This equipment will help our students explore themselves and introduce them to new and older sports. Physical Education is an outlet to students and they would enjoy the class so much more if we had the proper equipment! We are also currently training to become a unified school with Special Olympics and need equipment to enhance the skills of our athletes. Sports is also a way to release some of the stress that the special needs students have but may not be able to explain them. 

Items In Need

Ukuleles for Schoo Middle School

Students at Schoo have been serenaded by faculty and staff playing the ukulele, but have not had the opportunity to learn the instrument. Students have shown great interest in learning how to play chords on the instrument to accompany their favorite songs.

To accommodate all our Schoo students, we are asking for 50 ukuleles. Each instrument is approximately $40.00 each. We would appreciate anything that you have to give to help us accomplish our musical goal! Requesting $2,000 plus cost reimbursement.
