Your gift to the students of Bainbridge Island?
Reading and math success for all!

State and federal funding for students who need help with reading and math is based on the number of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch—not the number of students who need academic support. We whole-heartedly value this use of public funds. But that also means that our district faces a choice: either find other funding or let our students fall behind in reading and math. BSF fills the gap!
Early intervention pays off!
By supporting Reading Club, BSF funds certified teachers who help at-risk elementary students achieve reading fluency. This intervention pays off! BSF funds similar interventions in math skills at Sakai and Woodward.

Please join us for an evening celebrating our schools! Learn more about the amazing event here.

Help us reach our goal
Our goal is to raise $1 million in 2018-19. We hope every family in our community will consider supporting our local schools. Please give today!

Social Emotional Learning
For the second year, BSF will provide professional development support for teachers and staff as our school district implements a social emotional learning initiative.

Coffee with the Superintendent
Join us for questions and conversation with Superintendent Bang-Knudsen on Wednesday, March 13th from 4-5 pm at the Bainbridge Public Library. All are welcome.
