Northshore School District’s School Board selected, approved and announced the name for Elementary #21: Ruby Bridges Elementary at the Dec. 9 board meeting.
Congratulations to all fall sport student athletes for their accomplishments throughout the season. Below are highlights of student and team successes!
Sue Freeman, a Northshore volunteer and former parent in the District, was recognized as the Human Services Champion of the Year by the North Urban Human Services Alliance (NUHSA) at the organization’s annual awards program held on Dec. 3 at Shoreline City Hall.
There are over 40 music events this December that feature our brilliant student musicians, and you're invited!
Elementary #21’s campus is quickly taking shape. In November, site prep work for the playground area was initiated, the athletic field marked 90% completion and permanent light poles were installed at the roundabout.
The Skyview and Canyon Creek expansion project is making notable strides toward completion. The contractor is nearly complete with the process of commissioning in the flexible use main building.
Congratulations to the 13 Northshore educators who successfully renewed their National Board Certification. To remain certified, they must submit new work for review by The National Board for Professional Standards, which, upon approval, validates that National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) are continuing to teach to the highest standards in the nation.
Congratulations to Northshore’s School Board, which was named a “Board of Distinction” by Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA).
Efforts are being made throughout the District to be prepared for all types of emergencies, such as earthquakes and other natural disasters, active threats and hazardous environments.
What another great week. It is hard to believe that it is already the middle of December!! The winter concerts and activities are in full swing. I have been so enjoying getting out and hearing the student musicians as they share their many gifts (last night’s concert at Northshore MS was amazing ;>) !! The schools and streets are alive with a festive energy as we await winter. I for one can wait a bit for any more inclement weather ;>) As these days get shorter, it is wise to remember: “The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” -- Christopher McCandless (1968-1992)
