Education of our young people is an investment in the future. A commitment to excellence in education is the hallmark of Kingfisher Public Schools. Support for education is a tradition and a trust our community has chosen to honor.
The Kingfisher Educational Foundation (KEF) continues to support Kingfisher Schools through activities, projects and monetary grants to teachers. Each year, the KEP gives thousands of dollars in grants that provide for projects ranging from new geographical maps, head-phones for listening and reading and computer-aided technology, to specific projects like start-up finds for resurfacing the old track field.
Each year, the Foundation holds a Duck Race to kick off the start of the new year. The little rubber ducks continue to be a great success, and the Foundation raises thousands of dollars during the event.
The High School Flag Plaza continues to be a focus of attention for the Foundation, and anyone interested in purchasing a brick for the plaza may contact Vicki Rother at 375-3121.
The Foundation continues to work for our schools and accepts contributions to the principal account throughout the year. Its governing board meets the second Thursday of each month at the Kingfisher Board of Education Building at 7:00 AM, and the public is welcome to attend.
