A Call for Volunteers

For Immediate Release

WSVEF Puts out Call for Volunteers

  After seven plus years of hard work, the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation (WSVEF) is proud to say it’s raised $1.63M for our local schools in grants, pass-through funding, and endowment funding.  But right now, money is not enough.  Time from volunteers is sorely needed to continue the good works underway, and to help pave the way for the organization’s future works.

  Dozens of volunteers have given thousands of hours to assist on various committees, make participation in community events like the Grape Escape and SpringFest parade possible, to review grants, and to provide special skills for some of the grants themselves.  Many of those volunteers are now moving on, and the Foundation needs help.

  Do you have a few hours you can give to help local schools?  Do you know somebody who does?  Whether you have one hour, one day a month, one week a year, or something in between, the WSVEF NEEDS YOUR HELP! 

  For a list of current volunteer opportunities, go to our website, or contact WSVEF Executive Director Anne Marie Slater at info@wsvef.org.

Your small time contribution can make a big difference for kids.  Volunteer today.

The WSVEF is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing the quality of public education within our community by creating a stable source of supplemental funding for curriculum enhancement and investment in our teachers.  The WSVEF has granted or secured grants for more than 102 projects/programs totaling over $1.15M since 2006; in a school district of approximately 1200 students, community support makes an unbelievable difference.

Grape Escape 2013 – Record Community Support!

For Immediate Release

 2013 GRAPE ESCAPE IS GREAT SUCCESS

Community Steps Up Again to Root for Schools

             White Salmon schools will be the beneficiaries of another successful Grape Escape event, the 7th annual fundraiser for the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation (WSVEF).

            “We are thrilled to say the evening’s festivities net a total of $120,000 for our local schools,” said WSVEF Executive Director Anne-Marie Slater.  “That’s an increase of more than 12% over last year, and just goes to highlight the amazing generosity of our community.  With record volunteer community involvement and record attendance producing a record total, we’re thrilled to say that our community is the foundation.  We value the continuing support and pride in our schools.”

            Live auction action brought entertainment and excitement, several guests battled for high stakes over paella parties, a student-art emblazoned kiteboard, sailboat racing, stunning paintings by local artists and students, and so much more.

A big thank you goes to the event sponsors who helped make it happen including: SDS Lumber, Insitu, ICE, Custom Interface, Underwood Fruit, Haskell Davies & Dunn, Best Western Plus Hood River Inn, Centerpointe Community Bank, Sagetech, North Shore Medical, and Zepher Inc.

            A number of local wineries contributed to the evening’s success with some of their finest vintages, which were poured throughout the evening and packaged up with many of the auction items.  They included local vintners AniChe Cellars, Jacob Williams Winery, and Domaine Pouillon.  Henni’s delectable dinner, along with an exciting dessert dash, provided the delicious fare for the evening.

            There were some outstanding private donations as well.   Inspiring many guests, long time benefactors and supporters of White Salmon schools, Wally and Priscilla Stevenson made the night’s largest individual donation, with $50,000 going to the WSVEF.  Mr. Stevenson stood up and addressed the crowd sharing his passion for education and recognizing how different things are today from when he was on the school board so many years ago.  While Doug and Leslie Campbell showed tremendous support with a gift of $10,000. 

            The entire event would not have been possible without the countless gifts of time, services and goods from dozens of others in our community.

            Said Slater, “More people than ever are devoting their core competencies and resources to support the Foundation’s role in our schools.  Each and every person gave extra effort and time from their busy schedules to make this event happen.  I’ve heard from many that they had a wonderful time.  So thank you from myself, and our Board of Directors, for your amazing input and help.”

            It was a wonderful time indeed.  Held at Skyline Hospital in their new event room, guests enjoyed a spectacular view of the sunset down the Gorge while sharing time with community and friends. Attendees were treated to a demonstration of newly funded art tablets and Adobe Photoshop software by Columbia HS Digital Imaging students.  A quartet from Columbia High School’s music program greeted arrivals with Dixieland music.  There was also a video featuring students, teachers, and administrators talking about the differences WSVEF grants have made in their lives and schools.

Event Coordinator and parent Susan Coulon said “It was a wonderful experience to see how people were eager to help with the event and so rewarding for it to be a success. All the hard work paid off.  I feel so good about our community because people are very supportive of the Foundation.”

            Since 2006, the WSVEF has granted or secured grants totaling more than $1.1 million to over 92 programs in the White Salmon Valley School District.   

The WSVEF is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing the quality of public education within our community by creating a stable source of supplemental funding for curriculum enhancement and investment in our teachers.  For more information, or to make a donation, visit www.wsvef.org  or call (509)493-1175.

BACK TO SCHOOL COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF WSVEF Announces New Grants and Ways to Give

Sept 1, 2013  

As local kids start the new school year, the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation (WSVEF) is gearing up as well, with the announcement of $20,000 in summer grants, and the launch of a community drive done in partnership with Harvest Market.

The WSVEF’s “We Root for Schools” community campaign launches on Tuesday, September 3rd at Harvest Market.  Make a $3 donation to the Foundation when you check-out at Harvest Market, and receive a really cool window cling.  Show your school spirit with one for each of your cars, and your home window too.  All proceeds go to support our local schools.   Clings will be available at the store through September 22nd

You’ll also help raise money for schools by bringing your own bags to Harvest Market when you shop.  From September 3rd through November 5th, you can opt to donate your .05 bag refund to the WSVEF.  And Harvest Market will show its school support by matching each one of those donations with another .05.

“Business and organizational support is vital to a strong community,” said WSVEF Board President Jason Spadaro.  “We’re excited to launch this new, on-going, partnership with Harvest Market, which will allow our entire community one more avenue to support our schools.”

Meantime, the WSVEF this week also announced five successful applications for the latest $20,000 grant cycle, most of them STEM oriented.

The largest grant, $8,574, will go to ColumbiaHigh School to fund state-of-the-art Vernier Probeware and software for use in the science lab.  This is Phase II of a program begun last year to replace antiquated systems and equipment in the lab.  The program will benefit nearly all students in the high school through their science courses by helping to increase scientific literacy, providing needed background for students to enroll in upper division science courses, and preparing them for post secondary science education, as well as providing more hands-on STEM experiences.

A grant of $8,212 will help install WiFi at Whitson Elementary and HenkleMiddle Schools.

“The WhiteSalmonValleySchool District was very excited to hear that the Foundation would fund a grant proposal written by one of our parents that would bring the district closer to funding WiFi at both schools,” said District Superintendent Dr. Jerry Lewis.  “Once this work is completed, students and staff across all three schools will have greater capacity to expand the use of educational technologies for quality instruction and learning.  I am very grateful for the support of the WSVEF and our community.”

This project is still awaiting final funding but the District expects to have fully accessible WiFi in place at both schools sometime this fall.  Complete internet access was installed at CHS over the summer and functions like a dream.

Third grade Enrichment classes will get $2,200 to bring a bit of engineering to the table.  The “littleBits” program consists of tiny circuit-boards with specific functions engineered to snap together effortlessly.   Young users can easily design and build a variety of sophisticated electronic devices, ranging from flickering lanterns, to motorized piggy banks, and light sensitive cars.

Remaining funds go to HenkleMiddle School.   After-school Rugby will receive $139 to purchase balls and cones, and $875 will go to provide on-going training for staff in the Strong Climate / Strong Learning program.  

The highly-regarded, behavioral intervention program creates a positive, organized, disciplined school environment, and has yielded encouraging results with a significant drop in discipline referrals since its implementation three years ago.

 “As we continue to forge strong relationships within our community to support our schools, and see these great programs put into place as a result of everyone’s generosity, the sense of reward is tremendous,” said Spadaro.

Since it’s inception in 2006, the Foundation has provided and facilitated nearly $750,000 in grants to a broad spectrum of programs in the WhiteSalmonValleySchool District.  The WSVEF  is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing the quality of public education within our community by creating a stable source of supplemental funding for curriculum enhancement and investment in our teachers.  For more information, or to make a donation, visit www.wsvef.org or call (509)493-1175.

CHS ENTERS DIGITAL AGE OF INSTRUCTION WSVEF Helps Fund 21st Century Tech Program

When classes begin at White Salmon’s ColumbiaHigh School later this month, students will be starting more than just a new school year.  They will be entering a new age of instruction for our community – 21st century digital instruction. 

The 2013/2014 school year launches the pilot program of a four-year plan to bring a one-to-one student computing ratio to CHS.   The White Salmon Valley Education Foundation (WSVEF) has collaborated closely with the school district, and other local businesses, to make this high tech program a reality, after community member Bryan Trullinger brought the concept to the district last year.

“This is an initiative the district’s Technology Committee has worked long and hard to achieve,” said WSVEF Executive Director Anne Marie Slater.  “The Foundation is pleased to assist by granting the district $30,000 towards the purchase of 99 Google Chromebooks and corresponding charging and storage carts.”

The monies come from the Foundation’s second granting cycle for 2013 ($20,000), plus an additional $10,000. 

Why the mass undertaking to move to one-to-one computing? Because it offers equal access to technology and information for all students.  Students and teachers will be able to utilize education apps, new modes of instruction, information, skills development, and collaboration.  And it’s the teaching wave of the future.  All of this is geared to helping prepare students for work and life in the 21st century.

Initially, the devices will be used in three teacher’s classes, which will touch almost every student in the school.  The four-year plan calls for each student in the school to have a Chromebook for his or her use for the school year. PC’s and Microsoft Office products will also be used throughout a student’s life at Columbia.  The district believes in diverse exposure to technology to provide marketable skills once a student graduates.

District Superintendent Dr. Jerry Lewis says after working through the District’s Technology Committee, they decided to go with the Google Chromebooks for a variety of reasons. 

Priced at $299 each, the Chromebooks are an economical alternative. 

They are cloud-based, meaning they have no hard drive, allowing the devices to have a longer useful life than standard laptops or computers.  And software and applications are updated automatically, meaning lower overhead and little to no additional IT support is required.

Finally, it is a single platform which is easy to master, meaning more time is spent on classroom learning and collaboration, and less time dealing with traditional technological headaches.

Social Studies teacher Peter Knowles is the Lead Pilot Coordinator for the Chromebook program.

Math and Science Teacher Amie Ell, and English Teacher Scott Kasenga round out the pilot year teachers.  All three have volunteered to participate, and will spend the year undergoing development training on the program, in addition to their usual professional commitments.  In the future, they will work to mentor/guide other teachers in the highest and best use of the Chromebooks and their applications in the classroom.  

Implementation of the Google Chromebook program is possible due to a district initiative undertaken this summer to increase bandwidth at Columbia, making the interconnectivity possible.  The district is also updating bandwidth capabilities at Henkle Middle and WhitsonElementary Schools to open up the digital learning age at those facilities as well.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to work with a district so committed to providing high quality education for our children, and continually working to improve their offerings,” said Slater.

The WSVEF has provided and facilitated nearly $1.3M in grants to a broad spectrum of programs in the White Salmon Valley School District since 2006.  “The Foundation is excited to add support for technology in our schools along with the many other programs that we help fund”, said WSVEF President Jason Spadaro.   

The WSVEF  is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing the quality of public education within our community by creating a stable source of supplemental funding for curriculum enhancement and investment in our teachers.  For more information, or to make a donation, visit www.wsvef.org or call (509)493-1175.

Lucky 7′s for WSVEF -New Leader, Fresh Faces, Great Numbers

 

April 17, 2013

If “7” is indeed a lucky number, this is shaping up to be a very fortuitous time for the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation (WSVEF).

The school-supporting organization is wrapping up its 7th year of business, with nearly seven dozen grants to local schools totaling some $750,000, and an endowment fund that just broke the $700,000 mark.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with how the Foundation has helped to strengthen our public schools over the past seven years.” said new Board President Jason Spadaro.  “It just goes to show how much our community can accomplish when we unite behind an objective.   Our goal over the next year is to expand the amount of community awareness and involvement in the Foundation objectives and continue to be a catalyst for community pride and participation in our schools.”

WSVEF Board Members elected Spadaro to the presidential post at their April Board Meeting.   Spadaro has been on the Board since the organization’s inception in 2006, and has worked unstintingly to help broaden support for the WSVEF and the educational goals of the school district.

“With the ongoing State budget and funding challenges for public schools, the work of the Foundation becomes more important than ever.  I’m honored to be able to fulfill this role at this point in time,” said Spadaro.

Spadaro is the President of SDS Lumber Company.  His wife, Shelly, is a kindergarten educator at Dallesport Elementary and together they have two children who currently attend, and one who graduated from, White Salmon Schools.

He replaces out-going Board President Sue Davis, who has been with the WSVEF since pre-inception in the Fall of 2005.  Davis successfully wrote the application for non-profit status of the organization, and set the current path for organizational sustainability.  Prior to her three-year presidential tenure, she served as Vice-President, as well as Founding Secretary, of the organization.  Davis now becomes “Past-President”, and says she will work to ensure a smooth transition, and continue to advise in fundraising matters.

The WSVEF also welcomed new Board Member Anne Stringer at the April meeting.    She is the mother of a kindergartner at Whitson Elementary.  “I have a strong belief in the power of education, and loved the education experience,” said Stringer.  “Through the WSVEF I hope to further contribute and engage with the community.”   Stringer brings with her substantial database skills, and will help to update the group’s donor management system.

The remainder of the Board includes: Vice-President Kate Stevenson O’Donnell, Treasurer Matt Hanson, Secretary Peggy Neuman, Esina Alec, Dawn Hulbert, Doug Miller and Scott See.  Professional advisors are attorney Leslie Apple Haskell and WSVSD Superintendent Jerry Lewis.  Anne Marie Slater is Executive Director.

The WSVEF is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing the quality of public education within our community by creating a stable source of supplemental funding for curriculum enhancement and investment in our teachers.  For more information, or to make a donation, visit www.wsvef.org or call (509)493-1175.
