Supporting Anacortes Students Since 1984!
The Anacortes Schools Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization
which functions independently of the school district for the benefit of our students, educators, and community.
Our mission is to empower all Anacortes students through scholarships and enriched learning opportunities.
ASF believes passionately in the importance of community awareness and involvement in our schools.
We sponsor the annual scholarships ceremony where scholarships are presented to our selected students.
We welcome students, parents, alumni and community members of all ages to make inquiries at any time.
If you would like to know more, please contact us now!
Family Holiday Fair
The 2020 Family Holiday Fair has been cancelled
In the past, we have opened the Port's Events Center for two days of family-oriented fun. The Family Holiday Fair, part of “Celebrate the Season,” has been free, thanks to the generosity of Derek Damon Orthodontics and Playhouse Dental, who have sponsored the two days.
Saturday (cancelled) – After the Anacortes Holiday Parade. Photos with Santa, Cookies and Cocoa provided by Chandler Square, Who-ville games and crafts provided by Fidalgo Rotary, Entertainment by Mt. Erie Elementary, Fidalgo Elementary, Island View Elementary Choirs and Fidalgo Danceworks.
Sunday (cancelled) – Santa, cookies, crafts plus entertainment by the Gracy Harmony Trio and the main event, is Gingerbread (small kits for all) and the contest put on by Fidalgo Island Rotary.
We are sorry not to be able to hold the Family Holiday Fair in 2020.
Ready to Learn Fair
Though the Ready to Learn Fair had to be transitioned to a drive through event due to COVID-19, we still distributed over 300 free backpacks and supplies at our event in August 2020. This year, ASF was fortunate and grateful to have many donors willing to fund Fair supplies for our K-12 Anacortes students, which means we have extra supplies for any ASD families that need them!
