Community breakfast

In its first annual Community Celebration breakfast, the Anacortes School District thanked our many generous volunteers, donors, service clubs, and staff for their support of our schools.

Rebecca Pursley was recognized as 2017 Volunteer of the Year for her work at Island View Elementary. Rebecca volunteers each Wednesday in Chad Sage’s third grade class. Rebecca, who lives with MS, has taught the students about this disease, and has inspired them to volunteer and serve their community. She also shares her love of armadillos with the students.

Clare Martin was recognized as 2017 Student Volunteer of the Year.  Clare, an AHS senior, is a varsity athlete who serves as class president, mentor and coach to younger students, volunteer with Kiwanis Key Club and the Anacortes Arts Festival. Her teachers say she is one of the most hardworking, efficient and caring students they have ever worked with.

Each year, community organizations and individuals donate approximately $500,000 and more than 25,000 hours to our district.

“We simply could not do all that we do to support our kids without the generosity of our community,” said Superintendent Mark Wenzel. “It’s quite remarkable how much this community cares and commits to action.”
