(1) Moscow Education Foundation, Inc.
I’m excited and proud to announce the formation of the new Moscow Education Foundation, Inc.! Patrons and educators have long identified a need for an organization to provide additional financial support to enhance opportunities for our students. The Foundation, managed by a Board of Directors made up of community members, will seek to fund academically-based grants proposed by MSD 281 teachers and/or schools. The Foundation is a 501(c) 3 public charity and an Idaho Educational Entity.
Many districts in Idaho and other states have had foundations for years and have made a tremendously positive difference for student learning. Now it is Moscow’s turn!
In the Foundation’s inaugural year, they are beginning with a “$10 Kick-Off,” and asking our community members and alumni to please consider giving $10 or more to help build a funding base–sort of a “Foundation for our Foundation!” Once they have reached their initial goal of $10,000 school district staff will be notified that proposals for grant funds will be accepted. Let’s help them reach that initial goal.
If you wish to donate or want more information about the Foundation, please visit: moscoweducationfoundation.org .
(2) Wanted: Feedback On How We Are Doing
Please take a moment to complete our parent/community survey. This gives an opportunity for parents/guardians and other community members the chance to let us know how our schools, as well as our school district in general, are doing as their community’s public school district. The survey window will be open until November 15th. Students and staff will also be completing their own survey during this time. The feedback from the survey will help us with our continuous improvement plan.

Thanks for your ongoing support and feedback.
