Seattle Public Schools thanks 2012-13 Calendar and Family Guide sponsors
Families, staff and community members should receive calendar by first week of September
Seattle Public Schools would like to thank those organizations and businesses that sponsored the District’s 2012-13 wall Calendar and Family Guide, which will be mailed soon to Seattle Public Schools students, families and staff.
Sponsors include KOMO News Network, Allstate, Camp Fire, City of Seattle, Comcast, EveryBlock, Pi Plus Tutors, Northwest Network, Seattle Committee to Save Schools, Stevens Pass, Swerve Driving School and Defensive Driving School. Photographer Susie Fitzhugh also contributed her time and efforts in taking and editing the photos that appear in the calendar.
“We are thrilled to partner with these businesses and organizations to ensure our families have access to this important information,” said SPS Chief Communications Officer Lesley Rogers. “Without these sponsors, the District would eventually have to stop publishing the calendar, which our families and staff rely on for news and information throughout the year.”
The calendar, which features photos and quotes from students and staff, is scheduled to be mailed on Aug. 27 and in homes by Sept. 1-4. The District prints 55,000 copies of the calendar, which includes a family guide that contains information about important school dates, testing schedules, inclement weather instructions and family services.
Advertising in the wall calendar was made possible by the School Board in June. The newly updated Advertising Policy 4237 is available online for more information. The sponsor messages in the calendar do not constitute or imply any endorsement, recommendation, or favoritism by Seattle Public Schools.
Anyone interested in helping sponsor next year’s calendar can reserve a spot early by emailing email@example.com. Media contact for more information: Teresa Wippel, firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-252-0203
