Redmond, Wash. – The Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Board of Directors has selected Dr. Jon Holmen to be the next Lake Washington School District Superintendent. They announced their decision on Monday, March 23, 2020.

Redmond, Wash. – The Lake Washington School District has been following guidance from Public Health in an effort to stay open as long as possible. In light of the current information shared today by our elected officials, we believe it is time to plan for alternative ways to serve our community and families. 

In collaboration with our School Board of Directors and our Lake Washington Education Association, we have made the decision to close all schools from March 12 through March 27, and re-evaluate any further closures during that time. 

In light of today’s news about a King County resident’s death related to the Coronavirus (or COVID-19), and that additional cases are anticipated, we wanted to reach out to share what Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is doing to monitor and prepare for a potential increase in frequency of the Coronavirus in our schools.

    LWSD Art Docent Program

    Art Docents are classroom volunteers who teach art lessons to elementary students. The new Lake Washington School District elementary art curriculum and the elementary art docent program complement each other.

    Lake Washington Schools Foundation logo. The Lake Washington Schools Foundation funded the development of elementary art lessons in partnership with LWSD Art Docents. Art Docents can use these resources to provide equitable access to art district-wide.

    The elementary art docent lessons below help LWSD extend and enrich the overall visual arts experience for students in all our elementary schools.

    Art Docent Workshops

    The LWSD Teaching & Learning Department will hold four Elementary Art Docent Workshops during the 2019-20 school year. These hands-on workshop sessions will provide docents the opportunity to create LWSD Art Docent Program projects, while gaining practical instructional tips.
