Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation donates BIG for district education initiatives

The Snoqualmie Valley School District recently announced a big donation it received from the Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation following the foundation’s successful Spring Luncheon – its annual fundraiser that honors SVSD Educators of the Year and highlights the education initiatives it funds.

The Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation (SVSF) presented an $84,000 check this year. The donation will help fund district-wide initiatives at all Snoqualmie Valley schools.

SVSF has been working to support Snoqualmie Valley Schools for nearly three decades.

According to the district, the initiatives funded by the donation for the 2019-20 school year include:

  • Library Collection Resources for Middle Schools (6-8) – $30,000 ($20K for SMS, $10K for CKMS)
  • Career Technical Education (CTE)/Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) high school course materials (9-12) – $16,000 (Biomedical Sciences and Welding supplies)
  • AVID College and Career Readiness Program (6-12) – $15,000 Foundation funding has helped to establish this effective program for grades 6-12 at CKMS, TFMS and MSHS. This additional funding helps provide training for more teachers to receive the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) training with the district goal to implement key concepts from the program in classrooms districtwide.
  • Middle School Math Support (6-8) – $15,000 ($5K per middle school)
  • K-2 Coding Software, Curricula, Materials (K-2) – $6,000 ($1K per elementary school)
  • Career Exploration Fridays Support (9-12) – $2,000 for field trip excursion costs (in partnership with Snoqualmie Valley Community Network)

The Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation is a local nonprofit – run by volunteers – dedicated to raising community support for schools and funding programs across the district. Learn more about the foundation at  www.SVSFoundation.org

    Good to see some of that dough earmarked for CTE rather than all of it going to grooming more drones for the corporate oligarchy…
