  •  Panorama survey

    Students to receive Panorama survey in spring

    We will again be asking our 3rd through 12th grade students to participate in the Panorama survey for social-emotional learning. This survey was given to students last school year and in the fall 2022. Panorama helps schools and districts transform their approach to education, so that every student thrives in school, every student benefits from an excellent education, and every student graduates prepared with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets they need to thrive in the modern, ever-changing world. Through our work to improve education, we help create a world where every child has equitable access to opportunities in school and in society more broadly. Panorama is a tool used by the district in conjunction with multiple other resources, such as attendance, behavior, grades, etc.

  •  Color Me Important

    Color Me Important works to engage students by celebrating and recognizing diversity

    Snohomish School District kindergarten and 1st grade teachers will soon be one step closer to having additional tools in their classrooms that help provide students with the creative supplies that more closely represent who they are. Thanks to the local Color Me Important project, which is organized by Marnie Gray, the Snohomish Lions Club and others from the Snohomish community, Snohomish School District’s youngest students will have some new tools that will help make it easier to express themselves creatively.

Your feedback will help us outline the goals for the future of the Snohomish School District. At each session, participants will discuss: What is Snohomish School District doing well? What could the Snohomish School District do to improve the outcome of the goals for our child/children? The majority of sessions will be held over Zoom.

    School immunization reminder

    It is important to make sure your child goes to their regularly scheduled wellness appointments, which often include immunizations. The summer months are a great time to get your child caught up with immunization requirements before the 2022-2023 school year. Schedule your appointments early, as health care providers’ schedules quickly fill up in August and September. Make sure to turn in your updated immunization paperwork to the school by Wednesday, September 7.

  •  Speak Up!

    Speak Up!

    Rather than focus on or highlight hate, we would like to take this opportunity to look at how we can continue to move forward and work to be better with one another. We can start with increasing our awareness of hate speech and engage in conversations around how to address it and support those impacted by it. To be clear, hate negatively impacts everyone.
