The girls handle the phones – kids raise money to help the school!

You can expect the call.

The San Juan Public Schools Foundation will hold its annual Phone-A-Thon on Tuesday, October 7th, and Wednesday October 8th, 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).

Friday Harbor High School has recently been recognized in the areas of marine science, robotics, athletics, drama and art, through awards, competitions and highly acclaimed performances. The students continued excellence in AP testing has also been acknowledged.

Anyone wanting to support our program can send a donation to the San Juan Public Schools Foundation, P.O. Box 1452, Friday Harbor, WA 98250. Donation envelopes will mailed later this month.
