Marysville schools 'Dream Big For Kids' March 29

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville School District will be presenting its summit on education, "Dream Big for Kids! Imagine Where We Can Go Together," from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, in the commons and gymnasium of the Marysville Getchell High School campus.

In February of 2013, the Marysville School District Board of Directors began an initiative to increase community involvement, by including parents, students, business and civic leaders, and other community members in conversations to improve the educational opportunities for Marysville students.

The Marysville School Board began the process with a series of community forums, to help identify the successes of the Marysville School District and the areas where it needed to improve. The school district then utilized this information to focus on what it needed from a new superintendent, to help lead the district to its next levels of success.

This led to the hiring of Dr. Becky Berg as superintendent, who has since done significant community outreach work, including meetings with parents, staff and community members, as well as a series of "Coffee and Conversations" with families in the community. While the district has learned much from this process, more insights are needed, which is where "Dream Big for Kids" comes in.

Hundreds of Marysville and Tulalip community members are expected to join business leaders, parents, students and school district staff at this educational summit, to help envision the future of the Marysville School District and its children.

This is a no-cost event, but space is limited, so it's recommended that you reserve your seat at a table ASAP.
