Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2-6

Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated throughout the Olympia School District Monday, May 2 through Friday, May 6.

The Olympia School Board unanimously approved a proclamation last month naming May 2-6 as Teacher Appreciation Week. The local recognition coincides with both the state and national Teacher Appreciation Week.

The proclamation states in part that teachers serve in partnership with parents to ensure the appropriate education for all children; prepare students to meet high standards of performance, be lifelong learners and contribute as world citizens; and inspire students to think strategically and to integrate experience and knowledge to form reasoned judgments.

Remember to take time next week to thank our teachers for their dedication and hard work.

Apply for College Bound Scholarships

The College Bound Scholarship is here! The College Bound Scholarship is an early commitment of financial aid to eligible students in the seventh and eighth grade whose families might not be considering college because of its cost.  Students sign a pledge in the seventh or eighth grade to be good citizens (not be convicted of a felony), graduate high school (with a 2.0 GPA or higher) and apply and gain admission to an eligible college.  If families meet the income requirements and the students fulfill the pledge, then the scholarship will be combined with other state financial aid (at comparable public colleges), some fees, and a small book allowance. 

To view the application, visit the College Bound Scholarship website. Applications and information are also available at all Olympia School District middle school front offices.
