Two hour late start Tuesday, Feb. 20: To protect the safety of our students and staff, all schools will start two hours late on Tuesday, Feb. 20. There will be no morning preschool and no out-of-district transportation, including Sno-Isle buses. Buses will run on normal routes throughout the district. If your child rides a bus, it will come to the same bus stop, but will be two hours later than normal.
The new Early Learning Center opened its doors on Jan. 8, 2018. The new school serves three- and four-year-olds in two programs—the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program and the Developmental Preschool Program. The new school was part of the 2016 construction bond that also included the new Stevens Creek Elementary School, safety and security improvements at each school and the modernization and expansion of Lake Stevens High School.
Over the past two years, school libraries in Lake Stevens School District have undergone a significant transformation. They are still led by knowledgeable and highly-trained teacher librarians, and they are still home to hundreds of books, references materials, computers and educational activities. However, the roles of librarians, and the physical spaces they teach in, have transitioned and been reorganized to better meet the needs of students and their learning needs.
Eight Lake Stevens School District teachers earned their National Board Certification in 2017. Certification is an advanced teaching credential where educators analyze their teaching content and students’ needs, submit videos of their teaching and provide student work samples that demonstrate growth and achievement.
Becoming certified by Microsoft is no small task. After learning a software program and practicing a myriad of techniques you have 50 minutes to complete an online examination. You must earn a score of at least 700 out of 1,000 points. Six ninth-graders from Karen Coulombe’s computer applications classes at Cavelero Mid High School not only earned certification, they blew away their state-level competitors with perfect scores and lightning fast times—most completed their exam in less than 5 minutes!
