PLUSS

  • Parent Leaders United for Snohomish Students (PLUSS) is comprised of parent leaders within each school, along with representation by school principals, administrators and other interested parents and community members.

    Our goal is to connect with each other, share information as it relates to the schools and the district, and work together for a broader understanding of our schools from pre-K through graduation. PLUSS is an information resource - a comfortable place to try out new ideas, make suggestions, and learn about what's going on in both important and fun activities.

    If you would like to represent your school's parent group, contact your building principal or group leader to make sure you are included on meeting distribution lists. Not involved in a school parent group? No problem! Please contact the district’s Communications Department (communications@sno.wednet.edu) to get added to the distribution lists. Anyone (and everyone) is welcome to attend. PLUSS meetings are typically held on the second Thursday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at the district's Resource and Service Center (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish - unless otherwise noted). Meetings usually last about two hours. Meeting topics will be available as they are finalized.

    General meeting format:

    • 9:30-9:45/10 a.m. – Welcome and roundtable Q and A/discussion with the district Superintendent
    • 9:45/10-11 a.m. – Meeting topic and any guest speakers
    • 11-11:30 a.m. – Parent club/organization group sharing of events/activities in their schools and wrap up
