Reading Intervention and Enrichment programs:
The Foundation is pleased to announce continued support of the District’s Reading Intervention and Enrichment programs at the elementary schools. Recognizing that reading proficiency is essential to academic success, the Foundation has gifted $16,000 to the Snoqualmie Valley School District for continued implementation of these vital reading programs.
Stereo Microscopes for 1st Grade Classrooms:
The first grade students will benefit from the addition of a microscope while Collecting & Examining Life lessons.
Visible light from the Sun is made up of a mixture of all colors of light. Students can study this effect with the Light Box.
Stereo Microscopes for Middle School:
This type of microscope allows students to study materials in a hands-on way.
With these worm compost bins students experience scientific methods in a renewable hands on way.
Science Computers (COW’s):
More students will be able to run experiments with these mobile science computers and they are completely compatable with the Vernier probes previously funded by the Foundation.
Watershed/Nonpoint Source Model:
Humans impact the ecosystem in both positive and negative ways. Students can study and predict how external changes influence a watershed during the Salmon Unit of study.
ACTIV Technology (ACTIVBoards):
The Foundation has funded ACTIVTechnology across the District and will continue to support this initiative until all classrooms which desire an ACTIVEBoard have one to use.
Elementary Reading Intervention and Enrichment:
This reading initiative allows for students to benefit from small group instruction and to have access to reading materials appropriate for individual proficiency levels. With your support, the Foundation can continue to help support this essential reading program across all elementary schools.
With the help of the Tanner Jeans Memorial Foundation, the Schools Foundation is committed to sustaining this essential peer advisory program. As Mount Si High School grows, having trained Natural Helpers (peer mentors/mediators) to help students get assistance for various adolescent related problems and issues is vitally important.
