GIVE WHAT YOU CAN, WHEN YOU CAN
As EE STARS continues to work towards strengthening our ability to specifically support Edmonds Elementary educators in teaching art, reading and science, we’d hope to meet our students’ families where they are. This year, we’ve been providing opportunities to be involved or donate to EE STARS’ mission’s efforts all throughout the year. Our goal is not to overwhelm, but rather empower our community to choose when and how it best fits their family to contribute.
EE STARS wants to show gratitude to the Edmonds Elementary communities before us who donated to our foundation so that future students could benefit from their generosity. They paid it forward for us and we hope that we can do the same.
If you’ve shown support in any way this school year to EE STARS efforts, we genuinely THANK YOU!
