Hundreds of classroom projects funded through


Congratulations to the teachers across the Road Map Project region who took part in the "Almost Home" campaign. With the help of the South King County STEM Network and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, there were over 440 math and science classroom projects funded in South King County and South Seattle! This is a tremendous accomplishment and a major support to teachers looking for ways to incorporate more project-based learning into the classroom.


Here are a few quotes from teachers:


"Yes, thank you!! I forwarded to my elementary teachers and know that several have already been funded with this wonderful opportunity. Yee-haw!!" - Renton


"This is REALLY amazing and exciting. THANK you so much!" - Highline


The campaign is just ending and the data are still being compiled, but look for a more complete summary with success stories from teachers in future email updates.



Summer reading plans heading out the door

The Let's Read! regional summer reading campaign team has been busy ordering, organizing and distributing summer reading plans! Each plan includes a summer reading agreement (available in 13 languages) and a Let's Read! magnet to hold the agreement or a library reading log to the fridge all summer long. The summer reading agreement is a tool that parents, caregivers and direct-service providers (e.g summer camp counselors) can use with students as a shared commitment to building great reading skills and habits during the summertime.


This summer, Let's Read! is very excited to partner with United Way of King County and School's Out Washington to bring more learning opportunities to free summer meal sites in South King County. School's Out Washington will be providing United Way's incoming summer meal AmeriCorps volunteers with practical training to ensure quality educational programming at United Way-staffed meal sites. The team is also working on providing summer learning kits to each United Way AmeriCorps member to help them incorporate fun literacy and STEM activities into their sites. 

To learn more about Let's Read! or to get involved, please contact Regional Summer Reading Campaign Coordinator Sara Siegel at
