East Valley Central Middle School Receives Local Support for Salmon Project

 Roy Farms Inc. recently donated a 40-gallon fish tank to the EVC science program to support a salmon unit that has been part of student studies for the past 22 years.  This fully operational fish tank allows students the opportunity to study and observe the growth of salmon from the egg stage through the fingerling stage of their life cycle.  A big “thank you” to Roy Farms Inc.

"Transportation Department Receives State
Awards While Keeping Our Students Safe"
 
Supervisor Dena Westphall and the EVSD transportation department recently received an award for outstanding WSP (Washington State Patrol) Inspections for winter and summer 2013-2014. Each year WSP performs two annual school bus safety inspections to ensure school buses meet the Washington State Safety Standard requirements. One inspection is planned and the other is a surprise.
 
Transportation WSP Award  

Mike Matsumura, one of our mechanics, competed in competition for the WAPT (Washington Association of Pupil Transportation) technician of the year and was awarded our region’s 1st place honor!

It takes mechanics and bus drivers working together as a team to achieve these results.
