Sunday January 23rd, Chuck Cady and Associates’ own Dillon Cady attended a fundraiser for Northgate Elementary School and the award winning non-profit, Powerful Schools. Powerful Schools is a non profit organization that brings in trained tutors to work one-on-one with struggling students. Powerful Schools works with each school to customize their programs based on each school’s needs as well as the resources raised for each school.
The event featured a number of speakers including:
- Representative David Frockt, 46th Legislative District
- Mark Mitsui, President, North Seattle Community College
- Stan Jaskot, Principal, Northgate Elementary School
- Bree Dusseault, Executive Director, Seattle Public Schools
- Tre Maxie, Executive Director, Powerful Schools
Dillon was impressed by the new leadership at Northgate Elementary, and the many changes that have been made since Stan Jaskot started as principal last June. Tre Maxie also provided compelling examples about the way Powerful Schools tailors the program based on each schools needs. Dillon felt that this new leadership and the Powerful Schools program is a huge step forward for the school and for the Haller Lake community. Chuck Cady and Associates feels that this is a worthwhile cause, and we made our own donation to the program. We wanted to thank The Haller Lake Community Club for their $5,000 donation to the program! Way to go Haller Lake! Finally, we wanted to get the word out about the positive changes happening at Northgate Elementary.
