Building on Success progress report

Households around the district received the Building On Success Progress Report in mailboxes this month. It included an overview and progress updates on construction projects funded by the 2016 bond and the 2019 capital projects levy. If you missed it in the mail, be sure to view it online to learn more about:

Learn more about the auxiliary gymnasium and commons space planned at Lake Washington High School. A community information night is set for February 5 at 6 p.m. in the LWHS Commons. Construction on the auxiliary spaces is scheduled to begin this summer.

This will be an open-house style poster session. Feel free to drop by any time during this one-hour event.

Construction on 20 additional classrooms has already begun. The new classroom wing will open in fall 2020.

Building on Success: A Year in Review 2019

The year 2019 was one to remember: We celebrated the grand openings of Timberline Middle School and the newly rebuilt Peter Kirk and Margaret Mead elementary schools. Progress continued on the remaining 2016 bond projects: Juanita High School and Old Redmond Schoolhouse. Construction also began on the addition at Lake Washington High School, funded by the Capital Projects Levy passed by voters in April 2019.

Thank you to the communities of Lake Washington School District. With your ongoing support, we are providing students with great places to learn!
