I was excited on the morning of March 10. I was going to meet Representative Ruth Kagi and hear her vision for Early Learning in the State of Washington.
Hi SCS Community,
Hope you enjoyed my last post on what it has been like to be on the SCS School Board, if not please check it out here. If the work of the board is of interest to you, then you’ll be happy to know we happen to be coming up on nominations for the Board for the Spring Society & Parents Meeting (May 18th at 7:30pm). I ask you to prayerfully consider how your talents and perspectives could be used to lead this school and encourage you to throw your hat in the ring. Read more >> about March Board Report
Trees fill every corner of Northwest Washington. We are called “The Evergreen State,” after all. When I started teaching first grade at Shoreline Christian I was told to “teach something about trees.” Over the years I’ve developed curriculum for my fall science units about deciduous, evergreen, and Christmas trees. We also learn a verse every year that reminds us that God watches our growth. We are like trees. Read more >> about Out on a Limb
I knew over a month ago that this was going to be a long Saturday. The day started with a Board meeting focused on the 2015-16 school year’s budget, the afternoon would be filled with supervising three basketball games, and the evening featured a party for a member of my school family. It was going to be a long, Shoreline Christian kind of day.
Thank you for your patience and trust during our recent lockout (Wednesday, Jan 7). This is something our school drills and reviews at least three times per year. I am very pleased by the response of the staff and the students when we received notification from the city to put the school in lockout.
Our school is part of an Emergency Preparedness Committee that meets five times per year to review school safety and practice coordinated responses to events/threats. The committee includes members of the City of Shoreline Emergency Planning Office, Shoreline Police, Lake Forest Police, Shoreline Fire, Shoreline School District, Shoreline Christian, Evergreen School, and St. Lukes School.
