October School Fuel News -- Tune in To our School Board Candidate Forum on Tuesday, October 13
     School Fuel and the Marin County League of Women Voters will be co-hosting an online candidate forum with the candidates for Area 3 for the school board election on Tuesday, October 13th at 7:00 pm.  Whether or not you live in Area 3, this is a great opportunity to find out more about the issues facing our school district, and how these two candidates plan to work with the Board.  You can participate in this event by going to the League of Women Voters website link.  You may also submit questions for the candidates prior to the event by sending an email to NUSD@marinlwv.org.


 
Free Books for Novato Students!

Reading is fun and essential for quality education, but many students have limited access to books during the pandemic.  School Fuel is supporting student literacy by offering book curbside book giveaways at the Hill Education Center on Thursdays, 3-5 pm at the Hill Education Center near the library.  We will have bags of books for students of all grades TK - 12.  If you have books you would like to donate, we will also be accepting donations of new or gently used books or returns of books if you have finished your bag.  We would also appreciate donations of paper grocery bags.



Enrichment Grant Update
School Fuel has decided to change its grant process this year in order to respond better to the changing needs brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are currently reviewing all of the grant applications that were submitted by October 2.  We will also be holding back a portion of our grant funds for this school year, and have a second grant application opportunity in December.  This will allow us to expedite funding now for projects and programs that are ready to go, and also reserve funds to respond to changing circumstances for Spring Semester.  Thank you to all of the teachers, parents, volunteers and administrators for the wonderful proposals that have been submitted!
