2018 Burien Brat Trot was a great success thanks entirely to a large community effort! It is very motivating and encouraging to see so many sponsors and individuals step up to support the event — from businesses rallying teams, to major corporate sponsorships, to school groups volunteering — this event is the best example of a community-wide effort!
Thank you for participating! “We are very proud to be able to produce this major event for our community. It’s about raising funds for the Highline Schools Foundation and the students and teachers at Highline Public Schools, but it’s also about bringing us all together for a day of celebration! Nobody does it like Highline!” said Highline Schools Foundation President and Brat Trot emcee Travis Exstrom.

A gift to Highline Schools Foundation is something much bigger than one donation – it signifies that you believe in a future where all students reach their highest potential, where all teachers can provide enriched learning experiences and where all graduates are college or career ready – and that such a future is worth fighting for.
Your donations make a difference in the lives of individual students and your gifts help to provide outstanding academic and athletic programs, scholarships, tools for our teachers, a rich community environment and so much more.
YOUR support makes it possible!

The Highline Schools Foundation plays a critical role for Highline Public Schools—we provide our students with the resources they need to succeed in school. From classroom supplies to sports equipment, from field trips to scholarships, the Highline Schools Foundation raises funds to help our communities’ kids with what they need in school.
Poverty is a significant and growing problem for America – over 63% of our student population are on the free or reduced lunch program, meaning their family income falls below the poverty line. The Foundation supports these under-resourced students in a variety of ways. [READ MORE]
