Olympic High teachers put $34,000 to use from new fund

The Olympic High School Foundation has hit its fundraising target for a program that supports teachers – and the money has already funded more than $34,000 in projects.

The foundation has raised $276,500 so far in cash and pledges, foundation director Joan O’Brien said. That means the school will receive the full $250,000 that alumnus and businessman Bruce Dye had put up as a matching grant.

The money goes to the “All-Star Teacher Initiative,” a program that recognizes teachers for the extra time and money that goes into their work. Teachers can apply to the foundation to receive money for a project or equipment.

Here are a few examples of where the money has gone.
