Local Businesses partner with school district to provide NEW Student Study Spots

According to Snoqualmie Valley School District Technology Coach Janice Wintermyer, the district – as part of its new One-to-One Computing Initiative – recently checked out almost 2,400 laptop computers to students at Mount Si High School and Snoqualmie Middle School, with another 1,400 devices on the way for students at Two Rivers, Twin Falls, Chief Kanim and the Parent Partnership Program in the coming weeks.

These computers are for use at school and at home and were funded by the district’s 2018 technology levy. As a result, the way kids study and do schoolwork is changing. So the Snoqualmie Valley School District recently announced a new partnership with local businesses who have volunteered to offer Student Study Spots during their business hours.

The district has been reaching out to local businesses with WiFi who want to show their support for students and help those who may need a space to study. 

Student Study Spots offer kids options if they don’t have internet access at home; if studying at home can be distracting; if they need to work with a partner and meeting outside a house is better; or if they just want a different location to study besides school and home.

To welcome students, participating businesses will display the below flyer near their front entrance. 

The following Snoqualmie Valley business are now Student Study Spots:

  • Trail Youth Coffee Home – 226 E North Bend Way, North Bend
  • Scott’s Dairy Freeze – 234 E North Bend Way, North Bend
  • The Swirl – 426 Main Ave S, North Bend
  • Starbucks – 721 SW Mt Si Blvd B, North Bend
  • The Bindlestick – 8010 Railroad Ave, Snoqualmie
  • The Black Dog – 8062 Railroad Ave, Snoqualmie
  • Café Minee – 8150 Railroad Ave B, Snoqualmie
  • Starbucks – 34817 Snoqualmie Pkwy, Snoqualmie

If your business would like to participate as a study spot, contact Janice Wintermyer at wintermyerj@svsd410.org or 425-831-8034.  As more businesses participate, the district will add to the list and Student Study Spots map.
