Peninsula Education Grants

CatchingUp

The Peninsula Education Grant Program (PEG) offers charitable grants to fund programs, materials, and related resource needs for educators to assist in providing learning and

PEG-square-adgrowing opportunities for their students.

Grants are available to educators in all primary or secondary classes for both public and accredited private schools within Mason, Kitsap, Jefferson, Clallam and Grays Harbor Counties. The grant amounts will be awarded between $300.00 – $500.00 for implementation of new programs, continuation of existing programs, materials, equipment, or supplies. Applications have been made available to school districts as well as in our branches.

All applicants are encouraged to be individual members of Peninsula Credit Union (with their own member number), but it is NOT a requirement. Grant applications must be submitted or postmarked by April 14, 2017. Grant recipients will be notified and funds will be distributed to the respective School Districts for allocation to the grant winners.

South Sound Saturday School

adult students

Registration is now underway for South Sound Saturday School. This year, Saturday School will be held on March 18.

Saturday School, you say? Yes, but it’s not like detention or anything. This one-day professional development opportunity has become a popular annual offering for WEA members.

This year’s Saturday School will be held on Saturday, of course, March 18, at Pioneer Middle School, in DuPont. Breakfast and registration begins at 7:45 a.m. with welcome and introductions at 8:15 a.m. Class begins promptly at 8:30 a.m.

We’ve been working hard on developing a slate of cool and timely topics where you can learn more about cultural competency, evaluations, financial planning, special education, National Board certifications and much, much, more. Check out what we’ve got lined up.

Plus, you’ll be able to talk during our Saturday School! In fact, we will encourage and ask participants to connect, share and exchange ideas with colleagues and their locals throughout the day. We’ll have breakfast waiting for you at 7:45 a.m. We’ll even throw in a school lunch. (We’ll offer vegetarian and gluten-free options to those who have dietary restrictions, but please bring your own sack lunch, if you have specific needs. Also, pack your own munchies if you need a snack throughout the day.) And, just in case you need them, up to six free clock hours will be available, depending on the class you decide to take.

Registration is $25 for WEA members ($125 for nonmembers on a space-available basis) and covers up to two sessions.

Class space is limited (yes, we have class-size issues, too) so register now to get your top picks. Registration will close at midnight Friday, March 3.

If you have questions, please contact Summit UniServ or call 253-845-4535.
