The Mercer Island Schools Foundation and PTSA joined forces again this spring to help the school district raise funds needed for the upcoming school year.
The Bridge the Gap campaign was successful in raising $1.2 million.
“We received donations from families, individuals, community organizations and business groups,” said MISF executive director Penny Yantis. “We also received a very generous challenge grant when we reached the $1.2 million mark. It is truly an amazing accomplishment.”
The funds will help the district retain 20 teachers, maintain class sizes and provide students with the same education as in years past.
