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!

School Supplies continue to be available

We have placed the ASF School Supply Cabinet in the alcove between the AMS Commons and the District Office on the backside of Anacortes Middle School. This Cabinet will be restocked weekly with the remaining school supplies and backpacks from this year's Ready to Learn Fair. School supplies have been labeled by grade and there is a rainbow of backpack options in the bottom drawer as well. They are completely free and available to all Anacortes students!
