What part will you play in the SCS community?
After working in Seattle public schools for thirty-four years, Mrs. Karin Clute was ready for a change. “I had heard about Shoreline Christian for fifteen years. I’d seen it from afar and I just wanted to come and be a part of that Christian community.” So after trying out SCS through substitute teaching, she jumped at the chance to come on board full time, where the average number of years worked for faculty and staff at SCS is over fifteen.
The first day of school, every single parent showed up for fourth grade orientation, which floored her. “I have never—in all my career—had that, where everyone was on board,” she pointed out. Part of that she attributes to a strong school culture of parent involvement. “There are great opportunities for volunteering—tons of opportunities here—not only on the playground, but in the library, in classrooms helping with the children.” As a result, she says, kids are different here in the ways everybody treats each other and together focuses on God. “All of that is exactly what I wanted.”
