Students, community depending on passage of Snohomish school bond

Snohomish schools bond

Students, community depend on passage

Passing Snohomish School District’s $470 million school bond is integral to the future success of our town.

The Snohomish schools are more than 40 years old and, while our teachers do the best they can to provide an excellent education to our students with the facilities available to them, the buildings are dated and need replacing.

This bond will build six new elementary schools as well as create additional classroom space at Glacier Peak High School, renovate the AIM campus, and create a larger space for the Early Learning Center.

When communities stop showing support for their schools, property values decrease and students’ educational and career prospects decrease. We don’t want that here in Snohomish.

With schools improved, students and subsequently our community, will benefit from higher quality education and a safer learning environment. These kids grow up to be tomorrow’s local business owners and community leaders.

I have four kids in Snohomish schools, and would be beyond grateful for our community’s support in providing all students, present and future, a high-quality education. For the cost of a few cups of coffee a month, you can be a part of making Snohomish an even better place to live. Vote Yes! for Snohomish Students by Feb. 11.
