Summer School Registration Now Open
Summer School is an opportunity for secondary students to strengthen skills, retrieve credit, and build flexibility into their schedules.

Provide Your Feedback: Inglemoor High School Phased Replacement Community Survey
A committee of students, staff, and community members are working with a team of architects to help design the new Inglemoor High School. The overarching goal of this project is to replace the existing school buildings in a phased approach resulting in improved health and safety of the learning environment. In 2023, the team will develop a master plan and preliminary design for the entire replacement project and then determine the scope of the Phase 1 construction based on project priorities, construction logistics limitations, and budget constraints. This replacement project was made possible due to the generous support of Northshore voters, who approved the 2022 Capital Bond.
This survey is open to all community members, parents, family members, staff members, former students, and neighbors. An additional survey has been shared directly with current students to gather additional information. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be compiled and shared with the design committee. Thank you for your interest.

Sharing Thanks for our School Volunteers
The week of April 16-22 is Volunteer Appreciation Week. With more than 10,000 volunteers districtwide, now is a wonderful time to celebrate this amazing group of dedicated individuals. One way to do this is through this Padlet tool on our website. You can use the Padlet to show your appreciation for individual volunteers, volunteer groups, PTSA, booster clubs, and more. We invite staff at schools and in departments to post throughout the week, as many times as you’d like.
The District will be sharing this in a variety of ways, and we would love to make sure your volunteers are recognized. Thank you for your continued support in welcoming volunteers as an important part of our Northshore community.
Students Advance to WA State History Day Contest
During the month of March, many of our Northshore students participated in National History Day. This year’s theme was "Frontiers In History: People, Places, and Ideas" and students from across the state and nation engaged. Northshore students independently select a historical topic related to the annual theme, and then conduct primary and secondary research. They accessed libraries, archives, and museums, conducted oral history interviews, and visited historic sites to gather information. After they analyzed and interpreted their sources and drew conclusions about the significance of the topic, they presented their work in one of five ways: as a paper, an exhibit, a performance, a documentary, or a website.
The regional competition for National History Day was hosted at Northshore Middle School this year. The contest featured 294 students with 197 entries from 13 schools from Seattle, Shoreline, Northshore, Mercer Island, and Bainbridge Island school districts. There are two divisions: Junior (6-8 grade) and Senior (9-12 grade). Students entered either as an individual or in a group. Northshore advanced 53 projects to the WA State History Day Contest that will be held on April 22, 2023, at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland. Congratulations to the students and staff who supported their efforts. See more information about the student projects advancing to the state contest.
