It's fair week! We've partnered with the San Juan Island Community Foundation on their 2022 County Fair Giving Campaign to raise funds to help support our local students as they head back to school.

Engaging students in STEAM – science, technology, engineering, art, and math – is the most important factor in creating tomorrow’s workforce and keeping our kids buoyant this post-pandemic school year. The San Juan Public Schools Foundation (SJPSF) is instrumental in expanding classroom enrichment for STEAM programs that would not happen otherwise.

We are asking for our community’s support in providing important opportunities for our students. Through the Fair Giving Campaign, the first $1,000 in donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Community Foundation. SJPSF is also eligible for up to $2,500 in bonus grants awarded throughout the fair. To be eligible for matching funds, donations to the SJPSF must be made during the four days of the 2022 County Fair – Aug. 17–20. Donors can contribute in person at the San Juan Island Community Foundation (SJICF) fair booth, online at https://sjicf.fcsuite.com/erp/donate/…, by phone to SJICF at 360-378-1001, or by mailing a check payable to SJICF (dated between Aug. 17–20) with San Juan Public Schools Foundation in the memo line to P.O. Box 1352, Friday Harbor, WA 98250. The Community Foundation will grant the raised funds to SJPSF following the County Fair.

Friday Harbor High School students, Aaron and Robin, placed second place in the March 2022 Computer Integrated Manufacturing Competition at the 2022 Washington Technology Student Association (TSA) annual state conference! SJPSF funded the trip to this conference, and in partnership with the excellent mentorship by STEM teacher Sam Garson, they were able to have this experience in person.

“These kinds of opportunities not only push our students to apply the knowledge they are gaining in their classes, but also grounds their learning as all the numerous TSA challenges are based in real-life industry innovation and engineering challenges. It has been amazing to see how our students rise to the challenge and how well we do in competition against schools with vastly larger STEM programs, more students participating in TSA, and more resources at their disposal. We are so grateful for the support of the San Juan Public Schools Foundation,” says Garson.
