Principal's Perspective Newsletters & Messages

June 29th, 2015

Dear Viking Community: 

One of my primary duties, and challenges, as the Principal of this fantastic high school is to set up and lead a plan of action to keep us from being content with good and striving towards great as a system. It is a task that I relish. There is no greater reward in the education business than seeing colleagues working hard in a collaborative fashion to maintain a tradition of excellence and the positive results to support this effort.

I am proud to say we are continuing the tradition of excellence at LSHS in our academic, activities, athletics and in our arts programs. Our recent scores from the Smarter Balanced Assessments show us statistically significantly ahead of the state average scores. Our activities programs, with over 40 clubs, are filled with service clubs, students’ interest and career clubs supporting as many interests as our students have at LSHS. Our athletic programs are stronger than ever with record involvement matched only by exceptional state-level performances. Our arts program is exceptional as well with a room-busting choral and band programs complimented by a drama program that proudly reflects the high performance standards we expect in Lake Stevens. In short, it has been a wonderful year at LSHS. Fortunately, that means we get to build on this strong foundation. What is next at LSHS? We will be busy preparing for new academic programs as we expand our College in the High School and Advanced Placement programs. We will also be planning how we can implement the District vision of one-on-one technology over the next two years and considering how that will impact both our instructional strategies and our content.
We have a lot of work to do at LSHS. Trust, though, as we move forward we will be keeping the tradition of excellence alive and well at Lake Stevens High School. Go Vikings!

With Viking pride,

Eric Cahan
LSHS Principal
