Inspiring Students Since 2001
Sequim Education Foundation's mission is "to be a catalyst for vibrant growth of each student in the Sequim Community." Our vision is to inspire and support a lifelong love of learning.

Sequim Education Foundation was formed in 2001 as a non-profit public charity by a small group of concerned business and community leaders who were committed to the youth of Sequim. SEF or Sequim Education Foundation has grown over the years thanks to those community members, parents, teachers, students and school administrators who are committed to ensuring students from the Sequim School District have opportunities to pursue their dreams.

On Saturday, June 6th Greywolf Elementary hosted the 2015 Exploring Engineering Day, for students from both Greywolf and Helen Haller Elementary in Sequim. It was a tremendous success. Once again we could not provide these kinds of opportunities without our volunteers. SEF would like to extend an extra special thank you to Donna Hudson, Dave Hasenpflug, Carla Morton, and Missy Church-Smith. Sunrise Rotary and the Sequim Soroptimist continue to be valuable partners as we strive to inspire Sequim students.

Extra Thanks
Community Partners
SEF is proud to work with the Sequim Sunrise Rotary ( & Sequim Soroptimist ( Without partner organizations such as these we would fall short of our goals. The hours they volunteer and the consistent funding they donate allow us to create and continue what have become signature Sequim Education Foundation programs, like the Film Festival and Engineering Day. Their continued commitment to the youth of our community make them perfect partners as SEF continues to find new ways to inspire the students of Sequim.

OLYMPEX: A collaborative effort to study rain and snow on the Olympic Peninsula.
Angela Rowe

Synopsis: This winter, scientists from the University of Washington and NASA conducted a project across the Olympic Peninsula (OLYMPEX) to measure rain and snow as storms moved from the ocean to the mountains. This large effort required collaboration from many groups around the area, including volunteers placing rain gauges in their backyards, mules carrying instruments into the National Park, and weather radars recording data on the Quinault Reservation and at Lake Quinault to help us understand the processes leading to varied precipitation around the area. Data and stories from this challenging and exciting project will be presented to showcase the wealth of new information gained about the weather across this region and how this data is being used to improve satellite measurements.See more upcoming talks here.

This year marks the 11th Annual Student Film Festival sponsored by the Sequim Education Foundation. Over $50,000 has been awarded to student directors over the years.

These films will be showcased at our public competition on April 22, 2016 along with an art display from SSD students. Get more information about the Film Festival here and get started on your film.
