With the ongoing pandemic making every part of teaching harder, the Community Foundation for Coupeville Public Schools has stepped up big time to support remote learning.

The foundation, which normally issues grants to teachers and scholarships to students, has donated $45,000 to assist the school district.

A $30,000 check was given to the district to “supplement remote learning software and hardware purchases.”

Of that money, $10,000 will be used to help fund the iReady curriculum, with $10,000 going for the Character Strong curriculum.

The purchase of classroom technology (lapel microphones and cameras for teachers) nets $6,000, with the remaining $4,000 going to create 20 additional hot spots for students and their families.

The foundation then added an additional $15,000 donation for “Covid relief support.”

Fundraisers such as Dine Out/Shop Out, and the annual Circumnavigate Whidbey event helped raise funds.

Some Booster Clubs sit around, but not the one reppin’ Coupeville High School.

Making the money rain down, the helping hands behind Wolf Nation gave out more than $4,000 to CHS sports programs at their last meeting, then promptly went out and sold 700 pounds of seafood at Mussel Fest to replenish the coffers.

The Booster Club’s most recent endowments include buying t-shirts for boys basketball’s cancer awareness night, and purchasing new jackets for Wolf softball.

CHS girls basketball and boys soccer also scored, with both programs having requests for new player travel bags approved.
