Student cooking competition returns
This year's annual Kids in the Kitchen/Junior Chef Competition event will be held Friday, April 27! District 4th - 6th grade students are invited to submit recipes for their favorite after-school snacks. The recipes, which must be submitted by Friday, February 23, do not have to be original. Student finalists will be selected from the submitted recipes and will be invited to prepare their culinary masterpieces at a Friday, April 27, event. A panel of judges will select the grand prize winners. Past award categories have included health-conscious foods; simple, kid-friendly preparation; fun food; and judge’s choice.

(Paperwork will be available online mid-February).

Elementary highly capable and middle school honors program application information
Application packets for the 4/5/6 highly capable and middle school honors program are available online by clicking here or are available on district and school websites under the Students and Departments & Programs channel/directory - Highly Capable/Honors page. Paper copies are available at all Snohomish elementary and middle schools and at the district's Resource and Service Center (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish). Completed application packets are due Friday, February 2, and can be turned in at your local school or the Resource and Service Center (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish).
Please note that as part of the middle school honors program application process, the student's most-recent 2017-2018 report card is needed. Because report cards may not be available until after the February 2 packet deadline, copies of the 2017-2018 1st semester report cards can be submitted when the report cards are received.
Note: Sixth graders who are currently enrolled in the 4/5/6 highly capable program in the Snohomish School District do not need to apply or test for middle school honors. Students will be automatically placed in all honors classes.
If you have questions about either the elementary highly capable program or middle school honors classes, please contact Linda Varner, Highly Capable Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-563-7296 or Julie Francois at email@example.com or 360-563-7258.
