REMINDER: STUDENT SURVEY

Dear Families,


We thank you and your family for being our valued partners as we work together to educate the children in our district. As you may already be aware, building our social-emotional learning skills is an important goal for our school this year. Over the next several weeks, students and teachers will participate in several exercises to better understand these concepts and to reflect on how they perceive these skills in themselves.


We will be asking for your child to reflect on their own mindsets and approaches to learning via an online survey they will be completing at school. The survey shouldn’t take more than 20-30 minutes to complete.


The survey content will ask students to self-reflect on self management, grit, self efficacy, effort, learning strategies and emotional regulation.


We are asking that all of our students participate in the surveys, as their responses will provide invaluable insights into their experiences and how we can improve and adapt our district to their needs. If a student doesn’t feel like they have enough information to answer a question, they will be able to skip the item altogether. The responses to these surveys will be completely confidential.


If you have any questions about the SEL survey , please don’t hesitate to contact Kelly Parsons at (360) 629-1246 kparsons@stanwood.wednet.edu

REMINDER: Community Facilities Advisory Committee Invitation

This year, the Stanwood-Camano School District will form a Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC). This team’s purpose is to affirm that public schools belong to the entire community, and funding for capital improvements is generated through voter-approved bond measures. Also included in the team’s work are recommendations for how families are assigned to particular schools based on where families reside, school capacity, and immediate and projected enrollment.


Community members play a key role in developing our long-term capital facilities plan and providing input on facility use to ensure the community's values and priorities are accurately represented.


If you are interested in joining this committee or would like to know more, please complete this form.

Career & Technical Education (CTE) Program Advisory Committee

The Career & Technical Education (CTE) Program is looking for business and industry leaders to serve as part of the Stanwood-Camano School District Career and Technical Education (CTE) advisory committee(s). These committees advise, assist and provide support and advocacy for quality CTE programs. Advisory committee members are business and industry volunteers representing occupational areas that have feeder programs taught in our public schools. Members have the opportunity to learn more about the CTE program and instructors are able to increase their understanding of the job market, employers' needs, and community opportunities.


CTE advisory committees:

  • Provide information to update, modify, expand, and improve the quality of programs
  • Support and strengthen the partnerships between business, labor, the community, and education
  • Work with students and educators to support real-world experiences and applications
  • Make recommendations that strengthen and expand the CTE curriculum, and provide assistance in implementing these recommendations
  • Identify and validate academic and occupational competencies, determine priorities, and review and evaluate programs
  • Communicate long-term goals and objectives of the CTE programs to students, parents/guardians, employers, and the community

Family Notice

Many of you may have seen news stories lately about the large amount of fentanyl or fentanyl-laced products coming into the United States, some disguised as candy-colored pills. We urge you to talk with your student about the dangers of accepting items that could contain fentanyl, such as items that look like colorful candies or counterfeit over the counter medication. We have included a link to the Seattle and King County website to learn more about the dangers of this substance. Seattle and King County Public Health website.

REMINDER: Chromebooks

It is important that students come to school with their Chromebooks fully charged everyday. Please make sure Chromebooks are plugged in every evening so that they will not need to be charged during the school day. Students will then not need to bring their Chromebook charger to school and risk losing it.


If you are having any troubles with your Chromebook not charging or the keys are not correct, please refer to the troubleshooting guide below.

Family Communication

October 7, 2022


Hello Families,


I recently visited a friend’s small farm on Camano Island. As she led me through her yard and greenhouse full of tomatoes, pumpkins, gourds, and sunflowers, I was struck by the beauty and apparent finality of the end of the summer growing season. Some growing seasons seem more active and vibrant than others but no less critical. As one season ends, another is right around the corner, ready to flourish and thrive. Similarly, as our students finish one school year, the next is around the corner. Our students will experience times of flourishing, struggle, growth, and excellence! Just as we till, plant, trim and harvest a garden or farm, we strive to take the same care with students. As the school year progresses, we explicitly look for ways to encourage and challenge students to reach their full potential. This is growth; growth is not always linear but will always result in something valuable and beautiful.


YMCA Before and After School Day Care

The Stanwood-Camano YMCA offers day care at several of our elementary schools and is planning on expanding it to all 5 elementary schools. In an effort to ensure the correct program(s) exist at our schools, you are invited to complete this survey. The survey is optional and will not impact any student(s) currently enrolled in YMCA day care programs.


Community Facilities Advisory Committee Invitation

The Stanwood-Camano School District will form a Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) this year. This team’s purpose is to affirm that public schools belong to the entire community, and funding for capital improvements is generated through voter-approved bond measures. Also included in the team’s work are recommendations for how families are assigned to particular schools based on where families reside, school capacity, and immediate and projected enrollment.


Community members play a key role in developing our long-term capital facilities plan and providing input on facility use to ensure the community's values and priorities are accurately represented.
