Each year the Washington Association of School Administrators holds a regional luncheon to honor educators and community leaders. This year, Alex Moll, a teacher at Lake Stevens Middle School, and the Lake Stevens Education Foundation received the special recognition on May 9 in Everett.
Our students showed off their creativity at the second annual Lake Creates art show on April 25 at Cavelero Mid High School. The event featured more than 500 works of art from students in preschool through 12th-grade from each school in the district. There were even eight art submissions by Lake Stevens School District staff members.
On April 24, the Lake Stevens School District Board of Directors honored Volunteers of the Year from each of its schools, and named a Distinguished Service Award recipient. This school year, our powerful team of 4,000+ volunteers served more than 43,000 hours. Volunteers of the Year were introduced by their school’s principal and presented with an inscribed vase and flowers.
Our Board of Directors voted during their March 13 meeting on revised calendar dates to make up missed days and instruction hours due to February’s snow. The Board approved the revised calendar dates with the last day of school being Friday, June 21. We received notification from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction that, in addition to making up the school days and instructional hours missed due to snow, we must also make up the time lost during our two hour late starts and our early release. In order to do that, we are making adjustments to our early release Fridays in April and May.
