The Snohomish Education Foundation awarded 121 classroom grants totaling just over $69,500.00 for 2017.  86% of the applications received for classroom grants were awarded with either partial or full funding.

Steve Thomas, Chairman of the classroom grant committee, stated, “with the support of our community, families, businesses and community organizations, classroom grants were awarded to each school in our district (levels K-12) and those funds will enhance the educational experience for many of the 10,000 students enrolled now and in years to come.”  Specifically, these grants will improve student learning in literacy, science, technology, engineering and math.

SEF began funding class room grants in 1995.  Since that date, $670,000 has been awarded in classroom grants.  SEF continues to encourage our entire community to be involved in ensuring that all of our students benefit from enhanced learning experiences.

We thank our donors for making this possible.

KHY Parade Honors SEF PR-Jun16In celebration of the Foundation’s 30th Anniversary, co-founders, Marian Berge and Mal Harding, are the parade grand marshals July 16th at 10:30 a.m.

KYDParadegrandmarshall2016

Snohomish, WA June 15, 2016 – In 1986 The Snohomish Education Foundation (SEF) was co-founded by Marian Berge and Mal Harding. Kla Ha Ya Days celebrates the Foundation’s 30th Anniversary with Berge and Harding leading the annual parade as co-grand marshals on Saturday July 16th starting at 10:30 a.m. in Snohomish, 30 miles northeast of Seattle.

Thirty years ago, Marian Berge, coordinator of volunteers for the Snohomish School District, and Mal Harding, manager of the Snohomish SeaFirst Bank and on the Snohomish School Board, met in the hallway after a meeting. Both had been to different conferences that had programs on scholarship foundations. Both had an idea, why not start an education foundation in Snohomish. So they did.

 
Marian was well-known for handling projects that no one knew what or how to do and making it happen. Even though Mal jokes that Marian did all the work, together they gathered a few like souls, had legal papers drawn up and proceeded with the first fund raiser for SEF.

 
“It was held in the Armory with hay bales,” Marian reminisces. Box lunches were auctioned and a couple of hundred dollars were raised. “We were so excited,” Mal beams.

 
That was 1986. Since then the SEF has raised $600,000 in classroom grants to 1,051 classes and $1.5 million in scholarships to 1,921 students. The foundation holds two fund raisers each year: a breakfast in the spring and an auction in the fall.

 
Adding to the fund raising efforts this year is the Kla Ha Ya Beats 5K & 10K Run and Kids 1 Mile Run in which a portion of the proceeds will go to SEF. The Kids 1 Mile begins at 6pm at 1st Street and Avenue A on Saturday July 16th followed at 6:30pm for the 5K & 10K. The Run will be serenaded with live music. DJs every mile along the Snohomish River will keep the beats going. To register and for more information, go to https://www.raceit.com/Register/?event=36977. Most importantly, use discount code SEFKHY16 for SEF to receive credit.

An estimated total of $191,000 in scholarships was awarded to 136 students at the end of the 2016 school year. “We are so pleased that the Snohomish Community continuously comes together in supporting student success,” says Sherri Williams, executive direct of SEF. “We thank Marian and Mal for realizing and creating the Foundation that has helped so many children throughout the past 30 years.”

 
The secret to SEF’s success has been getting the word out, Mal continues. “Once people hear about SEF, they think it’s great and are willing to give.”

 
“Kla Ha Ya Days is happy to honor and support the Snohomish Education Foundation,” adds KHY president Linda Davis.

 
Berge and Harding are both retired now, traveling and visiting with grandchildren and still involved with SEF. Their parting words, “Send money. We’ll put it to good use.”

The Kla Ha Ya Days Festival (KHYDF) is a nonprofit organization that produces an annual local festival to welcome people throughout the Pacific Northwest to celebrate the community’s beauty and goodwill of Snohomish. Proceeds from the KHYDF’s activities

support Snohomish-based community organizations with programs and services for youth and families. For more information contact Linda Davis at 425-493-7824 or visit the website http://www.klahayadays.com/

Patty Venema, Snohomish Education Foundation President & Scott Peacock, Snohomish School District Assistant-Superintendent for Leadership and Learning

Patty Venema, Snohomish Education Foundation President & Scott Peacock, Snohomish School District Assistant-Superintendent for Leadership and Learning

Due to the outstanding fundraising efforts of Snohomish Education Foundation and generous donations from motivated community members in 2015, Snohomish Education recently donated $20,000.00 to the Summer Arts & Science Academy and $20,000.00 to the ECEAP Preschool-Third Grade Reading Readiness Program with the Snohomish School District.

The $20,000.00 for the Summer Arts & Science Academy allowed for scholarships to low-income students that would not otherwise be able to attend.  The goals of this Snohomish School District program fills summer learning gaps, creates a lifelong passion for learning, provides nourishing meals (through Kid’s Café program) and transportation.  It also exposes students to new opportunities and helps build vocabulary and background knowledge.

“The SEF support of our Summer Arts & Science Academy is invaluable. The Foundation’s support has made it possible for dozens of students to engage in innovative, hands-on learning, who might otherwise have not been able to afford it.  Our program is richer and more meaningful for the diversity of experiences that so many kids have brought to it.” – Scott Peacock, Snohomish School District Assistant-Superintendent for Leadership & Learning

During summer break, many low-income students suffer from “summer slide” as they lose skills learned in the previous spring from lack of use over the summer months which widen the education gap between low and middle-income students.

Teachers plan courses around popular topics such as underwater robotics, geocaching, hiking geology, nature, master-chef, native American studies, forensics, engineering, songwriting, sports, nutrition, CAD, yoga and drama, just some of the 40 topics offered.

Scott Peackock, SSD Assistant-Superintendent for Leadership and Learning; Sherri Williams, Director of Snohomish Education Foundation; & Miriam Mickelson, SSD Executive Director of Teaching and Learning

Scott Peackock, SSD Assistant-Superintendent for Leadership and Learning; Sherri Williams, Director of Snohomish Education Foundation; & Miriam Mickelson, SSD Executive Director of Teaching and Learning

$20,000.00 for the Reading-readiness program allows for all children from ECEAP preschool through third grade to attend programs that promote skills to enable students to be able to read by third grade.   Each year, another grade level is added to the 5-year program.  Statistically, we know that low and moderate-income populations or children at risk are demographically this highest percentage of students that begin slipping behind prior to the 4th grade.  We also know that statistically, those students that are challenged going into 4th grade are less likely to graduate from high school.
“P-3 Literacy Alignment has been central to our work at the primary level in Snohomish.  It has enriched the collaboration of our teachers, but most important, is an approach to writing and reading that places our students’ experiences at the center of learning.” – Scott Peacock

The Foundation sincerely thanks our growing list of supporters for the key role they play in Supporting Student Success.   Annual Sponsors:  SBI, Boeing, Mt. Pacific Bank, Sodexo, Wells Fargo, Beresford, Coastal Community Bank, Heritage Bank, Kirtley Cole, Columbia Bank, Comcast, Dykeman, Foster Pepper, Ideal Communications, SkyDive Snohomish.

Hour of Code - Lawson class cropped
Snohomish students participating in Hour of Code.

“I love the Hour of Code program. This is my 5th year doing it, and each year is better and better. I like to start early now, instead of waiting until the December Kick off, because I challenge my students to do more, and I love to see what they can do! After the Hour of Code, most students do many activities on Code.org, they begin coding on another program called Scratch.com, and some even create games and programs on Khan Academy programming. So, I start early in the year, I post their certificates on the wall, and the students continue to grow throughout the year.”  –Matt Lawson, Teacher Seattle Hill Elementary

Inspired by the notion that if the current trends continue, by 2020 there will be over 1.4 million jobs in computer science and only 400,000 computer science students to fill them, the Partnership for Public Schools in Snohomish County was formed to advocate and leverage combined resources for critical needs such as computer science literacy that affect students in all our districts. The Partnership of Public Schools Foundations in Snohomish County is made up of the Snohomish Education Foundation, Lake Stevens Education Foundation, Monroe Public Schools Foundation, and the Northshore Schools Foundation. These Foundations serve more than 46,800 students and 4,000 teachers collectively.  The Partnership’s first initiative is to support access to computer science lessons for more than 10,000 students in Snohomish County School Districts by promoting and incentivizing participation in the Hour of Code movement.

markzuckerberg quoteThe Hour of Code organized by Code.org, a public 501(c)(3) non-profit, is dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and
underrepresented students of color. The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries with tutorials written in over 40 languages for students ages 4 to 104.

This event provides a one-hour session for instructors to expose students
in order to spark their interest in computer science topics no matter what field of study they eventually choose. With many Hour of Code themes to choose from, a wide variety of students of all ages can find something of interest to them, whether it is coding with Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, coding a Star Wars galaxy or coding the tutorial built around Microsoft’s Minecraft.

This fall, each foundation sponsored an instructor information night within their school district bringing together teachers and librarians to learn and share with each other about the Hour of Code curriculum. Additional incentives provided by the respective foundations were offered to instructors that conduct an Hour of Code with students at their school, in order to encourage and reward instructors for participating.
