Would you wear a watch and slippers made from carbon dioxide emissions? Or brush your teeth using toothpaste made from CO₂? Before the pandemic, students at Evergreen Middle School were learning about real products that capture and store carbon dioxide that would otherwise go into the atmosphere.
Twain Elementary addition
School openings looked a little different in 2020. Grand Opening celebrations with students have been postponed, but Lake Washington School District staff and students with special needs are enjoying their new spaces for teaching and learning. Enjoy these images from our new schools and construction projects.
The pace of change at three elementary school additions increased in November
and December. Steel installation at the three schools, a major milestone in the
construction process, is complete. Construction on exterior walls will begin this winter. See more photos.
The district completed a Limited General Obligation bond sale in May 2020 for $75 million in order to front-fund the these critical capacity projects. Bonds will be paid back with the levy proceeds that are collected over the next six years. Program spending picked up over the summer as the LWHS addition was completed; elementary exterior cameras were installed; and elementary additions and entry control projects began. Of the total planned expenditures of $144 million, $33 million has been spent.
Construction began this summer on additions at Benjamin Franklin Elementary, Rose Hill Elementary and Mark Twain Elementary in Kirkland...
This summer, construction will begin at Mark Twain Elementary. Watch this slideshow to learn more about what you can expect in the coming weeks and months.
