AVID Teacher Training

STEM Support - Snoqualmie Valley teachers participated in a Professional Development Day at Institute for Systems Biology. A student’s passport to opportunity is directly related to their mastery of math and science. A STEM curriculum focuses on inquiry‐based instruction. Engaging students in learning how to explore problems, evaluate alternatives, and identify answers or solutions will equip them for the real world and their futures.
District Art Fair - a series of two hour professional development classes to support art education to K-5 teachers in elementary classrooms across the district-all five elementary schools.
