There is a time for every purpose under heaven
I probably spend more of my time preparing for the 2017 - 18 school year these days than I do keeping this year on track. We are in the middle of re-enrollment for next year, we are looking at improvements we can make to our facilities over the summer, we are considering some program changes that would require curriculum adjustments, we are in the middle of determining staffing needs for next year, and sports schedules are being generated. With so many things in the works, I want to update you on a couple of the changes. Read more >> about A Time for Everything

While January marks the start of a new calendar year, it is right in the middle of our fiscal year at Shoreline Christian. And that means budget season. We have talked to you before about our budget process, at Society Meetings and in blog posts, but it’s a topic that benefits from revisiting from time to time.
Our school is a bit different--I know you know this, but humor me.

I’m not only certified to teach First Grade, I have a K-12 English teaching endorsement. This summer when I renewed my certificate for the 6th time, I once again was told that I could take Joel Bratt’s job.

All were there to discuss a vision for K-12 education in the State of Washington. There were about 300 of us in the audience that listened to a dialogue between the panelists that was facilitated by two of the Seattle Times education columnists.
I found the discussion to be fascinating as it weaved from problems to potential solutions for the problems to problems with the solutions. The discussion was interspersed with speeches,
