Time for the Phone-A-Thon!
The San Juan Public Schools Foundation will hold its annual Phone-A-Thon on Wednesday, October 2nd, and Thursday October 3rd, from 4 to 8:00 pm. During this time, volunteer students, parents, faculty and members of the community will be calling to ask for your support.
The Foundation is a group of volunteer parents, educators, business leaders, and community sponsors who raise money to make a difference in the classrooms of our school children. They work year-round on projects that put 100% of the proceeds from the Phone-A-Thon, the Knowledge Bowl, the Business Partnership Program and other activities back into the classrooms at the public elementary, middle and high schools.
We hope that the community will respond generously again for our kids. Quality education is everybody's business. US News & World Report has ranked Friday Harbor High School #5 out of 587 high schools in Washington State, and #161 in the nation out of 21,035 high schools from 49 states and the District of Columbia (Nebraska was not included).
