This is the final week of our United Way giving campaign, and if you have not already done so, please consider donating to this wonderful organization that gives back to our students and district in a variety of ways. Their recent shift in focus toward early childhood education has resulted in a much stronger partnership with WCPS. United Way has provided us funding for the Parents as Educators initiative in the Warren Central and Warren East feeder systems and grants to offset transportation costs for the Jumpstart to Kindergarten Program. Additionally, United Way helps provide funding for our Family Resource Youth Service Centers, which is generated primarily through the money you donate each year. Thank you in advance for helping us keep these programs and countless others alive by supporting United Way of Southern Kentucky.
