Students sign steel beam before LWHS topping out ceremony

    LWHS topping out

    The last steel beam for Lake Washington High School’s classroom addition was placed during a topping out ceremony on December 4. The last beam is traditionally accompanied by an American flag and an evergreen branch. 

    Students enjoyed signing the beam before workers lifted it into place at the top of the two-story steel structure. 

    This project is being funded by the Capital Projects Levy passed by voters in April 2019. It will provide an additional 20 classrooms in our rapidly growing district. Students will begin taking classes in the new addition in fall 2020. Construction for an auxiliary gymnasium and commons at the school are planned to begin in summer 2020.
