Weekend Food for Kids works with schools in Queen Anne and Magnolia to provide extra food for students on weekends when free and reduced price school meals are not available.
In partnership with Queen Anne Helpline, Ballard Food Bank, and Queen Anne Presbyterian Church participating students receive pre-packed bags of nonperishable food items containing the equivalent of seven meals and snacks; fresh fruit is included. Perishable items (yogurt, string cheese, hummus) are also available. The bags are delivered to school for students to take home over the weekend.
Participation in the program is completely confidential and free- and open to all!
To sign up, please return the form below to Ms. Skoog, school counselor (mailbox in main office). Once your child starts the program, he/she will receive a bag each week during the school year or until you no longer wish to participate. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Skoog at 252-2521 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The students had a Rockin' good time running laps at the Jog-a-thon. We were impressed and amazed at the effort and determination our explorers displayed. A big thank you to all of the volunteers who put their time and energy into making this event such a huge success! For those of you who sponsored a runner, your financial support enables us to fund many vital PTSA programs for our students - thank you! And finally, we couldn't have done it without the support of our larger community! Thank you to the many businesses who helped underwrite our event costs so that the money our students raised can go directly toward our PTSA programs.
We are thankful and grateful for all of you - what a great way to ROCK into the school year!
