New Year's Message from NSF President

January 2015: Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015!

I am so excited about the wonderful things happening in Natomas. As a brief recap, the 2014 Duck Pluck raised over $19,000 for Natomas schools. The Foundation gave away three Chromebooks in partnership with Trustee Lisa Kaplan as part of the Closing the Digital Divide Scholarship, and awarded $5000 to seven graduating seniors in May 2014. We were able to award an additional 20 refurbished computers to students and families in the first semester of the 2014/15 school year through a partnership with the State of California. We have been moving and shaking in the district!

As 2015 dawns, we are preparing the applications for the senior scholarship and in late January we will have VERY big news about the dollar value. It is over DOUBLE what we awarded last year! Visit the website in early February for the application district Seniors! We will give away four Chromebooks this year, and have another 20 refurbished computers to award in the second semester of the 2014/15 school year. Whew! Boy, do we have work to do!

It is with great pleasure that the Foundation sponsors the 6th Annual Duck Pluck on May 2, 2015! Ask how you can be a part of the fun at your school office or PTA/ Parent organization. I look forward to seeing you all in May!
