A LETTER FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT

Dear readers,

By proclamation of the governor, January is School Board Recognition Month. It’s a great time to recognize our elected community members who selflessly give their time and energy in support of high-quality public schooling for our youth. School board members in the Eatonville School District are entrusted by this community with responsibility for an annual budget of $24.9 million, 1,827 students, 220 employees and five schools.

School boards are charged with making decisions that can sometimes be quite difficult or require sifting through a great deal of information. They also bear responsibility for developing a vision that will guide the school district for years to come. Through collaboration as a team, and with school district staff, their governance and advocacy are building the future of education in Washington State.

This January, we’re encouraging all members of the community to thank a board member. Please thank them for volunteering their time and playing a critical civic role that helps form the bedrock of our democracy—public education. As a crucial bridge between the local community and the school district, their efforts are instrumental in helping all of us realize the hopes and dreams we have for the children of our community.

The men and women serving Eatonville School District and their years of service are:
Paulette Gilliardi - 18+ Years
Ronda Litzenberger – 10 Years
Roger Andrascik – 8+ Years
Jeff Lucas – 7 Years
Liza Klumpar – 2+ Years

FURLOUGHED FAMILIES CAN RECEIVE FREE LUNCH IN BETHEL

If you are a Bethel School District family whose income is being severely impacted due to the government shutdown, you can apply for the free and reduced meal program at https://www.bethelsd.org/Page/2518.

Because Child Nutrition is a federal grant program, funding may be in danger if the government shutdown continues.

EATONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL POOL NOW OPEN

The Eatonville High School pool reopened on Jan. 8. The district will be providing swim lessons, water aerobics, free swim, and lap swim and more. 
Hours of operation are from 4 - 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Pool hours are subject to change and maybe with little to no notice. However, the Eatonville School District will make every reasonable effort to make alternative arrangements in the event of a pool closure.

Registration is open for children 3 years and older. Please note that parents are required to be in attendance with students in the pool for children ages 3 - 5-year-olds who are not able to touch the bottom of the shallow end of the pool.
