Each fall, for a great number of years, Leavenworth elementary schools have participated in the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation "Foundation Week Banner Contest". This has always been one of the kick-off activities for Foundation Week, the start of our Annual Fundraising Campaign. This year, we kicked it up a notch, and moved from traditional butcher paper, glue, and cutouts, to a live display of Pioneer Pride. Each school, both elementary and secondary, was invited to submit a video for competition as a way to showcase the partnership with the Foundation, and feature the great things happening inside its walls.
Several guidelines were provided for the competition, such as focusing on the "Inspire" theme of the Foundation year, including the word "Pioneer", and, including items such as a pencil, balloon, tape holder, an apple, and dance moves.
Videos were submitted and reviewed the end of last week, and the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation is excited to share the results of the competition!

Congratulations, Warren Middle School, for your outstanding work on this project! The display of Pioneer Pride, educational "inspiration", teaching and learning, and friendship was incredible. These videos capture the wonderful work that takes place between staff, students, parents, and the community each and every day.
