Scappoose Parents Association
Over the past ten years, the Scappoose Parents Association has over $90,000 in equipment, textbooks, phone system, and a Driver’s ED vehicle. Grants have provided close to one-third of the cost of these items.
Foundations, such as the Autzen Foundation, Portland General Electric, Columbia River PUD, St. Helens Credit Union, Scappoose Figaro’s Pizza, Samuel Johnson Foundation, Fred Meyer, US National Bank, and Wal-Mart, have played a key role in our success.
Sponsors past and present, such as Oregon Aero; Dr. Kendall Liday; Dr. Brad Whisnant; Greg Sundberg, CFP; Zingti Massage; NeWay Laser; Burgerville; Columbia Oral Surgery; L&C Dental lab; State Farm; Westgate Mortgage; Ixtapa; Columbia River PUD; ReMax; All About Pets; Sunset Electric; and Boise Cascade Paper. Community members, such as Carol Girt, Mary Kucera, Rockwell Howe, and Larry Cole have made our fundraising events successful, as well.
We just completed a $10,000 tablet project for the High School English Department, a $1,000 “smart boards” project for the Middle School and provided new weightlifting equipment for the High School PE classes.
We continue to seek out new goals and projects to provide for an enriched learning environment for the students in the Scappoose School District.
The Scappoose Parents Association began in 2003 through a local grassroots effort led by parents, educators and volunteers committed to assisting students within the Sauvie Island, Scappoose and Warren communities.
