The mission of the Yakima Schools Foundation is to enhance educational programs offered within the Yakima School District No. 7 by raising money to fund immediate needs that support current classrooms and programs, and by establishing and maintaining perpetual funding sources, as well as increasing community involvement in the Yakima Public Schools.
Yakima Schools Foundation reached the milestone this year of celebrating our 30th Anniversary during the annual Celebrate Our Youth event! We celebrated the past, present, and future of the Foundation. We heard from speaker Noé Álvarez and honored the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council!
The 2020-2021 school year is in the books–and what a memorable chapter it’s been! Due to COVID-19, this school year was filled with adversity, adjustments and challenges, but we made it. Thanks to the awarded grants, sponsors, individual donors and other supporters of the Foundation we were able to continue in our efforts to support the needs of the Yakima Public Schools. The Foundation was able accept the challenge of 2020-2021 by achieving goals and making an impact on our students and in distance learning classrooms. While many students, teachers and families enjoy some well deserved rest this summer, at YSF, we will be busy planning to get ready to support more students and teachers in the new school year. We wish everyone the best upcoming school year possible and remain committed to providing the resources and support to help make that happen. We are looking forward to yet another amazing and impactful 2021-2022 school year!
Have a relaxing and wonderful summer.
