Days for Girls International April 13:

 
 

Days for Girls (DFG) International helps girls around the world stay in school by providing sustainable feminine hygiene solutions and health education. The DFG hygiene kits are produced with the help of thousands of volunteers - including the ones in Poulsbo's own DFG chapter.

The Poulsbo DFG is hosting a community work party for anyone who is interested on Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at West Sound Academy in the Commons. Parents and students are welcome to drop by anytime during the day to learn more and help out.

You don't need to sew in order to help; there are many non-sewing tasks also. If you do sew, however, please bring your sewing machine or serger and join in the fun. Feel free to bring friends! For more information contact Shirley Wilder at Poulsbowa@daysforgirls.org or find Days for Girls on Facebook.

 Kitsap Great Give - April 23, 2019April 23:

 

One day only: a 24-hour online giving event!

 
WSA uses the Kitsap Great Give to raise funds for a specific item that supports the students of the school. In 2019, WSA is quite literally attempting to support the students by raising funds for some desperately needed communal space furniture. Learning happens all over our campus and the common areas have no seating for small group work, socializing or teacher consultations. In an age when too many of us our looking at screens instead of at each other's faces, this seating is especially critical to foster both planned and impromptu face to face engagement.
