Molbak’s helps Northshore students & teachers grow  

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

More than 200 hours of teacher training and three garden programs have been funded thanks to Molbak’s Garden & Home’s Holiday kick-off promotion and their partnership with the Northshore Schools Foundation.

In early November for the fifth year running, Molbak’s Garden & Home kicked off the holiday season with benefit to the students and teachers of the Northshore School District by donating a portion of sales to support the Northshore Schools Foundation’s Teacher Excellence initiatives. 

More than $4,500 will be designated to support teacher training programs including National Board Teacher Certification, Positive Behavior Intervention Systems and New Teacher training programs.
Students of Cottage Lake, Bear Creek and Maywood Elementary schools were also the winners by having the largest percentage of their schools present during the weekend; they are being awarded gift cards to Molbak’s to help support their school’s garden program.

Funds will support a parent initiated gardening club at Cottage lake Elementary; campus beautification and a gardening project at Bear Creek Elementary and purchase seeds and plants for Maywood Hills Elementary Garden Club’s spring planting project.
