FOSCKO supports the orchestras of
Kellogg MS and Shorecrest HS

The supporters of the Shoreline Schools Eastside Orchestra programs would like to introduce FOSCKO - Friends of Shorecrest and Kellogg Orchestras.

We are a new 501(c)3, parent run, charitable organization here in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park supporting… you guessed it…. Shorecrest and Kellogg Orchestras! Our goal is to allow ALL students opportunities for growth and travel within the Eastside Orchestra program.

All funds raised will be distributed to both schools to offset the costs of the following (and more):
  • Travel- From time to time the students have the opportunity to participate in some wonderful educational (and fun) trips.
  • Outside Clinicians – Working with outside specialists allow the students to grow and experience different and specialized teaching styles.
  • Scholarships – We hope to offer financial assistance to those that need it for travel, private lessons, summer camps, or other educational opportunities that they would otherwise not have access to. 

In 2019 the Shorecrest HS orchestras will be travelling to University of British Columbia
, where they will embark on an educational journey as they have the opportunity to work with clinicians at UBC, tour the University, perform on an international stage, and attend the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Beethoven’s 9th. Not to mention, they will be visiting the VSO during the 100th anniversary season!

A chance to recycle your stuff and help the
orchestra kids

FOSCKO will be hosting fundraisers throughout the year and our inaugural fundraiser is THIS SATURDAY, October 20th from 2-5pm in the Shorecrest HS South (Student) Parking lot at 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.

Come help fill the truck! (The Goodwill truck that is) Goodwill is a certified E-Waste recycler so bring all your old computers, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals like printers, keyboards and mice⌨️💻🖥🖨💽💾🕹

Of course all of your other household items and clothes and shoes are welcome too! (Nothing larger than an end table please)

Please check out our Web Page (still a work in progress and growing with us) for upcoming concerts, fundraisers and other fun Orchestra related community activities.

There will be a dance in the spring, “A Night in Vienna” so stay tuned for more information on this fun community event.

ALSO please “Like and Follow” us on Facebook to stay up to date with our community happenings.

If you’re a business owner, you might consider a corporate sponsorship… Your company name will be listed in all upcoming concert programs, and featured on a pre-concert slideshow. ALL donations received are tax deductible, so please give generously to benefit ALL the students in our orchestra programs.

Thanks so much Shoreline and Lake Forest Park communities for always supporting your students!
