This is a special fund established by a private foundation whose purpose is to broaden the horizons of Selkirk students by making possible field trips to special events inside and outside of Pend Oreille County. Founded in April of 1985, the Foundation is a private, non-profit corporation which solely exists to help Selkirk students. While it is endorsed by and in cooperation with the Selkirk School District teachers, administrators and board members, all funding decisions are determined by the SHF Board of Trustees: Jane Reed, Kari Dawson, Debbie Link, Kim Larson and Donivan Johnson. The Selkirk Humanities Foundation helps Selkirk students grades K-12 expand their cultural and historical education with the generous support of its members. Selkirk Humanities Foundation funding enables students to attend a variety of humanities-related activities including: Disney Frozen on Ice and River Dance in Spokane and Men of Worth at the Cutter. Donor contributions also fund scholarships for Missoula Children’s Theater participants. Thank you Selkirk Humanites for all the years of support for our Selkirk Students.KREM 2 Tailgate PartyTom Sherry of Krem 2 News broadcasting live from Selkirk for Tom’s Tailgate Party.OTHER COMMUNITY SUPPORTERSWe are thankful for the amazing community support for our students that is prevalent at Selkirk. Again, the Ione Food Bank is offering to fill 6-8 food backpacks weekly for children in need who take them home on Friday afternoons. The food in the backpacks is intended to be easy for children to prepare themselves and to fill the gap in their meals caused by weekends. In addition, TECK employees donated supplies and clothing items students need for the school year and a local church bought school supplies for teachers’ classrooms. They generously do this annually. The Border Patrol spends a day in the classrooms bi-weekly on Thursdays.
