“Imagine… your Fingerprints on their Future!”
Fundraising Breakfast raises record $56,000

Over 350 community members gathered at the newly remodeled Snohomish High School to raise money for Snohomish School District students and to gain awareness about the programs the Snohomish Education Foundation provides to support student success within the District. The event raised a record $56,000.

The Snohomish Education Foundation was excited to introduce a first of its kind virtual Fundraising Breakfast for those unable to attend. Participants from as near as down the street to as far as Scotland were able to enjoy this event thanks to a partnership with Doctorate Level Sponsor, SBI. Through the use of SBI’s web conferencing software, Bridgit, the Foundation was able to offer attendees the choice of physical attendance or virtual experience.

Dr. Beth Porter, Principal of Snohomish High School welcomed attendees and gave an inspirational speech about how each generation leaves it’s fingerprints on the next. Sharon Hall, Foundation Trustee, former Snohomish Teacher and Master of Ceremony made introductions and kept the program lively. Dutch Hill Teacher, Val Stensland spoke on the Snohomish School District’s Preschool through 3rd Grade Reading Alignment program and the many Classroom Grants that have helped provide teachers with the tools to support reading fluency. Ryan Painter, Seattle Hill Elementary Teacher, explained how the Summer Arts & Science Academy is more than just a summer school. The program offers a wide variety of classes and acts as an incubator for teacher inspired curriculum. Mr. Painter shared his experiences teaching Minecraft.edu at the Academy and the various ways it helps teach math and computer technology in a fun gaming environment. Tami Caraballo, Glacier Peak High School Biotechnology Teacher, shared the value of the first of its kind Machining Pathways program and introduced former student and Glacier Peak Graduate, Jennifer Dankoff. Miss. Dankoff is a student of the University of Washington and recently received a lab position at Environmental Microbiology Laboratory in the School of Public Health. She shared with the room the extensive training she received under Mrs. Caraballo and how the Biotechnology program gave her the advantage when she began looking for a job in a lab.

“Thank you to the many generous corporate sponsors, donors and volunteers that make this event a success.” said Janelle Farley-Beyer, Breakfast Event Committee Chair. “These funds will leave lasting fingerprints on student lives and greatly impact the futures of tomorrow’s students.”

The Foundation sincerely thanks our growing list of supporters for the key role they play in Supporting Student Success. Thank you to Annual Sponsors: SBI, Boeing, Mountain Pacific Bank, Sodexo, Beresford, Coastal Community Bank, Kirtley Cole, Whidbey Island Bank, Comcast, Columbia Bank, Dykeman Inc., Foster Pepper, Ideal Communications, McDaniel’s Do-it Center, Snohomish Skydive and Event Sponsors: Everett Community College Foundation, Eve Rutherford DDS, Snohomish Inn, Hutteball & Oremus Architecture, K & L Gates, Community Transit, EHSI, NAC, and Peoples Bank.

“Imagine… all the places they will go!”  

 325 community members gathered at the newly remodeled Valley View Middle School to raise money for Snohomish School District students and to gain awareness about the programs the Snohomish Foundation provides.  The theme for this year’s Breakfast was “Imagine… all the places they 2013Breakfastpic2will go!”

Following the theme of this event, students of Valley View shared the places they imagined they would go by carrying banners they had created that listed their career aspirations.  The students paraded through the crowd of attendees with their banners held high.  The event was co-hosted by three Valley View middle school students and ASB Officers, Abby Nicholson, Marissa Johnson, and Abby Wiseman and hosted by Foundation Trustee, Tom Sebastian.

The presentations included Kevin Latimer, VP of Fund Development giving an informative presentation on District-wide Grants and the impact those monies have had on the level of education provided to the children in our District.  Everett Community College President, Dr. David Beyer, spoke about college opportunities, followed by JJ Cook, a Bio Engineering student.  JJ Cook shared his experience as a student at Snohomish High School completing the first of its kind high school Biotechnology/Machine Pathways program and how that experience impacted his overall education.  JJ found that many of the Biotechnology/Machine Pathways courses he took at Western Washington University were already being taught in our Snohomish High Schools providing him a huge educational advantage. DSC_0096

The Breakfast was concluded when Cathy Reines, President of the Board of Trustees called the students back up to the stage with banners in hand and asked the crowd to “Imagine… all the places these students will go with your support.”  Reines went on to say, “It is my dream that one day every student that graduates from the Snohomish School District with college aspirations will receive a scholarship.”

“The generosity of our community touches my heart year after year.” said Sharon Hall, Breakfast Event Committee Chair and retired Snohomish School District Teacher.  “It is my pleasure to be a part of this event and be involved with an organization that makes such an immense impact on the educational opportunities for children in our community.”

The Foundation sincerely thanks Breakfast attendees, business partners and our growing list of supporters for the key role you play in Supporting Student Success. Thank you to Annual Sponsors: SBI, Absher, Mountain Pacific Bank, Beresford, Coastal Community Bank, Whidbey Island Bank, Dykeman Architecture, Ideal Communications, McDaniel’s Do-it Center, and Comcast.  Event Sponsors: Sodexo, Columbia Bank, Kirtley Cole, Snohomish Inn, Snohomish Kiwanis, Eve Rutherford DDS, Everett Community College Foundation, Foster Pepper LLP, Hutteball & Oremus Architecture, K & L Gates, NAC Architecture, Peoples Bank, and Snohomish Rotary.

Each year the Snohomish Education Foundation offers district educators the opportunity to submit innovative ideas to educate, motivate, and stimulate the young minds in our community. We are proud to announce that this year the Foundation awarded nearly $65,000 in Classroom Grants in response to the many amazing ideas submitted. These eighty-nine grants are a testimony to the innovative and creative nature of our teachers, allow teacher inspired programs to become a reality and encourage teachers K-12 to be innovators in the classroom.

Some examples of the innovative grant requests that received funding from the Foundation this year include: a summer book mobile, a Transitional Center class that teaches budgeting to special need students transitioning out of High School, a young authors conference for Middle School students, a weather station that allows elementary students to take science readings, iPads and Autism Speaks applications for special education students, a high school student trip to Olympia allowing students to introduce a bill at the state capitol, and journals for a family poetry night.

“We are proud of the fact that we have been able to increase our funding for these inspiring grants year after year.” said Steve Thomas, Trustee and Committee Chair. Many of the educators who received grants this year were able to share their projects and experiences with the community at the Annual Awards Classroom Grant Ceremony held on February 19, 2013.

The Snohomish Education Foundation Board thanks our many generous donors for supporting student success and continuing to make a significant difference in the lives of children. “We are proud to do our part in providing teachers and students with the tools they need to succeed.” said doctorate level sponsor SBI President, Raymond Near.
