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.

    New teachers stay hydrated with reusable water bottles from LWSD Green Team

    Staff re-useable water bottles

    The LWSD Green Team gave away 60 reusable water bottles to new teachers during laptop pickup on August 10 at Juanita High School. They encouraged teachers to bring their bottles when they returned for Educator Introduction Academy the following week. 

    District sustainability efforts rely on the participation of every person in the district, including new teachers and staff. To support these efforts, teachers helped create a poster and wrote down one green habit to start this year. 

    Cascade Water Alliance donated the water bottles as part of its “We Need Water” campaign. Teachers also learned how King County Green Schools supports student Green Teams around the district.
