The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is celebrating its 22nd year of salmon “edu-tainment.” As always, our target audience for the first two days of this award-winning natural resource education event are third and fourth graders from area schools. We hope your school will choose to participate in this year’s “Dances with Salmon” festival.
We are trying to reach all teachers through this website and/or by email. Would you please review the email list to be sure all your teachers have been included?
*** Please forward this letter to all new teachers coming on board. If you are retiring or leaving your assigned grade then it is very important that you inform us and let us who might be your replacement. ***
School schedules are as follows:
Thursday Sept. 20 will include Wenatchee’s Newberry, Mission View, Columbia and Sunny Slope; Eastmont’s Cascade and Lee; and Cashmere.
Friday Sept. 21 will include Wenatchee’s Lincoln, Washington, and Lewis and Clark; Eastmont’s Kenroy and Grant; and Cascade in Leavenworth.
Schools in all other districts will be scheduled according to space availability for each day.
Please remember that each school selects one grade only to attend the festival to avoid having students experience the event more than once.
Registration opens June 29.
However, only teachers that returned evaluations last year will be able to register from June 29 to July 5. All other alumni teachers will be able to register beginning July 6.
All registration closes August 17.
You will receive your schedules via email, so please fill out the registration form completely by providing both your school and summer email addresses.
By completing and returning your evaluation form by the requested date in 2012, you will be given first opportunity to register in 2013.
All new teachers are required to attend a teacher workshop before they can attend school days with their classes.
The workshop is scheduled for Friday, August 17 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, and Monday, August 27, from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
Please schedule one of the workshop dates with Susan Peterson (contact information below).You will be given the workshop location when you schedule your workshop.
Please put this date into your schedule, as this workshop is mandatory.
During this workshop, new teachers receive an orientation to the Salmon Festival, a curriculum, cool posters and will sign-up for scheduled activities.
Please call or email Susan or Lynann if you have any questions.
Thank you for your continued support of this special event and we look forward to seeing you!
