While our primary focus is on our students, we firmly believe helping support our school staff ultimately helps support our students. When teachers and school staff feel supported and appreciated, they are better able to take care of our students and give them the best possible experience in school.
SoWashCo CARES provides funding for classroom needs, as well as activities that recognize the hard work of teachers and other district staff.
We recently implemented a new classroom grant program where district staff can apply for funding up to $2500 to support a special project.
