Fifth-graders and second-graders at The Island School have teamed up to produce the calendar that Bainbridge Islanders love to support each year at this time. This year’s calendar features “Plants of Ometepe and Bainbridge” and can be purchased for a $10 donation.

On the Thanksgiving holiday weekend — Friday, Nov. 29; Saturday, Nov. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 1 — you can find student artists selling calendars at Town & Country, Safeway, Good Egg, Blackbird Bakery and Ace Hardware.

Starting that same weekend, calendars will be available every day at Eagle Harbor Book Company and at the school.

“The Kids Can Make A Difference” calendar raises money for many projects on Bainbridge Island’s sister island in Ometepe, Nicaragua. Past calendars have helped fund sign language workshops, library and school supplies, scholarships, weekend ambulance service and more.
