Dear Vendors, Special Education Parents and Advocates, and Community Members,
The 2016-17 year has been a year of change for SEPAC. As noted on our main page (www.sepacnsd.org), our model of advocacy has shifted. SEPAC has partnered with Northshore Council PTSA to bring a “Special Education Representative” to their board. And with the PTA’s ongoing help, we look forward to having a special education parent representative at each Northshore School. We feel this new model of advocacy allows for greater parent engagement and potential change at the school and district level, and is a model of sustainability and longevity.
With this significant change, and after much deliberation, SEPAC has decided that we will no longer host the Woodinville Holiday Craft Fair. This cherished and much loved event has been our biggest community event and fundraiser for many years. The fair’s proceeds have allowed SEPAC to have a great impact in special education, so this was not an easy decision.
Your involvement and collaboration through the years has translated into thousands of dollars for Northshore students. SEPAC’s success in our advocacy endeavors is in large part due to your sustained and enthusiastic support.
We couldn’t have done it without you and we are immensely appreciative and thankful for your caring and passionate commitment to SEPAC and our goals.
As SEPAC changes direction, know that we will forever treasure the memories and wonderful friendships we’ve made throughout the years.
With much gratitude,
Sam Ames and the rest of the SEPAC crew
