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.

    Seeing old friends and making new ones have been highlights for students who are back in classrooms this fall. Hands-on activities help students grasp math concepts. Class discussions provide a framework for writing.

    As our community continues to grow, LWSD is adding more space to ease overcrowding. Thanks to a levy approved by voters in 2019, 20 additional classrooms opened at three elementary schools this fall. Thank you to our community for making these new classrooms possible! Learn more at
