  • Washington Apple Crunch October 7th!

    Posted by Melissa Lim on 10/12/2020

     

     

    Yakima School District participated for the first time in the state wide "Taste Washington Day," Washington Apple Crunch event on Wednesday, October 7th. The students who picked up meals received a fun handout sheet with apple facts, as well as a Washington grown apple so they could participate in the state wide celebration by biting into their apple with a CRUNCH! Our food service staff at Davis High school decided to join in themselves and are pictured below along with other food service staff throughout our differnt sites. 

    Did you know Washington State produces more apples than any other state in the United States? Harvest of these apples begins in August and goes through November and Yakima County is the leading county in Washington for apple production! On top of being an important economic part of the Yakima valley, apples also contribute some stellar nutrition! Apples contain antioxidants which help keep your cells healthy, vitamin c which can boost your immune system, and soluble fiber which helps lower cholesterol. Now there's something to celebrate, and if you ever get a chance to meet the growers and farmers of the next apple you take a bite of, remember to thank them for supplying you with a local, nutrition packed, delicious treat! Shout out to the Yakima Valley for being a noteworthy agricultural leader in our nation and for the Yakima School District featuring local produce.

  • EBT Funds Available to All YSD Students

    Posted by YSD Food Services on 7/6/2020

    Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children are eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.

    P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for some of the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades K-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Because all YSD students receive free breakfast and lunch, all YSD students are eligible regardless of income. If you do not already receive benefits, you will need to apply on or after June 30.  If you receive food assistance benefits already, the money will appear on your EBT on June 30.

    Update 7/6/20: We have been in contact with OSPI last week and they said that DSHS had the incorrect student list for Yakima School District which is why they turned down some parents; they are updating with the correct list which will show any student enrolled in Yakima School District that was grade K-12 in the school year 2019-2020 as eligible for PEBT.

    If you were denied, go to WashingtonConnections.org and apply again and see if their list has been updated. You can inform them Yakima is a CEP district.

  • Stanton Academy, Washington Middle School and Christ the Teacher Team Up to Assemble 200 Winter Backpacks for Homeless Youth

    Posted by Mary Kay Velikanje on 1/23/2020

    200 backpacks donated by students

    On Monday, January 27th at 2:15 pm, students from Stanton Academy, Washington Middle School, and Christ the Teacher will team up at Stanton Academy to assemble 200 winter backpacks for homeless youth.  The backpacks will be picked up by Rod's House that same afternoon so that they are immediately in the hands of those in need.

    The backpacks will contain winter necessities like beanie hats, hand warmers, water bottles, hygiene kits, gloves, school supplies, healthy snacks, mylar blankets, chapstick, playing cards, socks, and more.

    All three schools applied for and were awarded a grant from the Yakima Health Department to help the homeless.  Each school was awarded $1900 from the Yakima Health Department, plus Stanton Academy received an anonymous matching grant to their $1900.  The Yakima Health District realized all three schools had all written very similar grants and asked if they would like to work together.  All three schools said yes without hesitation.

    On Monday, the student volunteers from all three schools will meet at Stanton Academy and work together to assemble the backpacks.  The event should take about an hour.

     "The assembly of the backpacks will move fast because so many students have stepped up to help," said one of the coordinators.

    Drew Harris, a local Realtor, and volunteer with Rod's House says the backpacks are in great need and will make an immediate difference in the lives of youth who do not have a consistent place to sleep each night.

  • Stanton Senior Block Party

    Posted by Brianna Henry on 6/13/2019

    On Thursday May 23rd, 2019 Washington Fruit sponsored a first ever block party for Stanton Graduates and their families. As our neighbor they wanted to do something that would connect students and families to the community around them and show their support for the hard work our students have put forth throughout the year. It went from 5 to 8pm. HopTown Pizza and Winey Dogs provided food. Washington Fruit also brought in Knocker Balls for fun and entertainment for all. It was a success with over 25 graduates and their families attending. We want to give those businesses a HUGE thank you, we had a lot of fun and truly appreciated it.
