Teacher Appreciation

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! We want to recognize and honor all our outstanding teachers who are the heart and soul of education. Thank you, teachers, for working hard each and every day to elevate our students to become successful in school and beyond. We celebrate you today and every day!


The lists are out and Lake Washington School District (LWSD) musicians are major players for this year’s musical honor groups. On even school years, the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) choses students from across the state from Middle School to High School to participate in WMEA State Honors Music Groups. Sixty-nine high schoolers and 55 middle schoolers come from LWSD schools this year.

Earth Day 2022

Students across the district supported and celebrated sustainability efforts in their schools all week for Earth Day 2022.

    Baby Yoda give two thumbs up for LWHS, KiMS and RHMS band collab "The Bandalorian"

    Just one week before schools closed last March due to the pandemic, band classes in the Lake Washington Learning Community performed together for their annual Region Concert. This year, without the opportunity for an in-person concert, school band directors chose to carry on this regional performance tradition by creating a virtual video collaboration of the theme music from “The Mandalorian.” The directors, Matthew Kruse, Angie Laulainen and Cameron Stedman prepared the students for recording and helped them through the process to submit their videos. One hundred and sixteen students from Lake Washington High School, Kirkland Middle School and Rose Hill Middle School submitted videos. The students recorded themselves using their school computers and posted their videos to Flipgrid. From there, Kirkland Middle School Band Director, Cameron Stedman, compiled the videos and did the sound and video editing to create “The Bandalorian.” We hope you enjoy the performance!
