North Central Educational Service District announces school supply drive

North Central Educational Service District (NCESD) has announced a school supply drive to benefit the Cascade School District. Collections will be accepted July 29 and August 12 at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts.

The “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive is a joint partnership between the North Central Educational Service District, Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, and the Cascade School District.

Donations will be accepted during two concerts at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts: The Paperboys will perform on July 29 and Shawn Mullins will perform on August 12. Both performances will begin at 7PM on the Meadow stage at the Leavenworth venue. Cascade School District will provide a bus prior to each concert and accept donations of school supplies.

Donors will receive a buy one, get-one ticket to a future performance at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts.

A list of needed school supplies can be found below.

“Nearly 44% of Cascade School District students are on free or reduced lunch programs,” explained Dwight Remick, Executive Director of Finance and Operations for the Cascade School District. “We have many students from families that really struggle to provide the necessary supplies, as well as teachers who need additional support in equipping their classrooms.”

“We’re thrilled to be able to support our community in this way. We understand that some families face financial challenges, and we’re proud to help support them,” explained Rebecca Ryker, Executive Director of Icicle Creek Center for the Arts.

“We are always open to creative ways to help the children in our districts succeed in the classroom and understand that equipping each child with the necessary tools to participate and enjoy success is critical. We’re happy to help lead this outstanding project, and look forward to assisting Cascade School District families,” explained North Central Educational Service District Superintendent Dr. Michelle Price.

The North Central Educational Service District is a resource to the 29 districts within the four-county service area, providing professional and timely tools to meet the needs of individual schools and districts, and a reliable point of education-related information for the communities served. The NCESD is a respected resource to other ESDs throughout Washington State.
