Students raise money to buy food for families in need during the holidays
Several students in Ford and Keithley Middle School's Support Centers worked with school staff to raise money, with which they used to shop for food. Part of the food they purchased with the donated money will be given to Central Pierce Fire and Rescue's annual holiday food drive, while the other part will be used by school counselors to prepare food baskets for school families in need. In total, the students procured over $600 worth of food. It was a great learning and skill-building effort. Schools and student groups throughout the district participate in various food and clothing drives.

Superintendent's Message

December 2016 / January 2017
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! By over 67% approval with over 11,000 ‘yes’ votes, our community took the phrase, “8000 Reasons to Vote” to heart and overwhelmingly approved our bond measure.

It is a win-win for everyone. As you recall, your property tax rates from school facility taxes will not go up.
