Join guest chef and cookbook author Greg Atkinson and the culinary arts students of Lynnwood High School for lunch at the Edmonds Public Schools Foundation’s spring event, “A Recipe For Success,” this Friday.
The event at Lynnwood High School is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser of the year and supports students, teachers and classrooms in the Edmonds School District. Keynote speaker Adam Cornell, Snohomish County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, will talk about his personal “Recipe For Success” that helped him overcome many obstacles.
Single tickets for the event are $40, or purchase a table for $400, and you can register online. If you order Greg Atkinson’s latest, signed cookbook, “Northwest Essentials,” when you register, 50 percent of the proceeds will go to the Foundation.
The Foundation works directly with the District to identify district-wide programs that are in need of funding, such as summer school scholarships; after-school enrichment academic programs; an English Language Learners program for students and parents; and classroom supplemental reading materials to reach all reading levels within a classroom. Applications for 2011-12 grants are now being accepted (deadline March 25 at 4:30 pm), and are available online.
