WSD Seniors Selected as National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

           

The WSD is proud to announce that Katherine Balfany and Tyler Doering from Holt High School and Hayden Waid from Timberland High School have been selected as semifinalists in the 60th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, and have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $33 million. Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

WSD Students Experience 5th Grade Camp

The times, they are a changin’! The tradition of fourth grade camp in the spring has evolved this year into fifth grade camp in the fall. With nine elementary schools we had to have a five week rotating schedule to get all 1,185 fifth graders to Camp Wyman in Eureka. Camp is more than just s’mores and campfire songs! All camp classes meet district and state curriculum objectives. Check out the camp Twitter account for lots of great pictures - https://twitter.com/wsdr4Camp.

Proposition E - November 4th

 

Why is Mr. Jandt the music teacher pushing a cart down the hall at Lakeview Elementary? Because that cart is his classroom. Space is so tight at Lakeview and other elementary schools across the District that many art and music teachers don't get to use a regular classroom.

The passage of Proposition E in November would generate approximately $40 million for the purpose of building a new elementary school, adding elementary classrooms to Discovery Ridge, Lakeview and Duello, and completing phase two of Liberty High School.

If you think this picture of the new elementary school looks familiar, you're right! The new elementary school would use the same expandable blueprint the WSD has used to build five different elementary schools since 2005. By reusing this design prototype and not designing each new building separately the District has saved tax payers over $400,000!

If you are interested in helping with Proposition E, or would like more information, please send an email to

WSD Utilizing Enhanced Security Features at Building Entrances

The WSD has installed new security entry systems in all District schools and buildings. Each school now has an "Aiphone" camera monitoring system at the main entrance, and during school hours visitors will have to be “buzzed in” by the office staff. Visitors will be asked to identify themselves and show picture ID before being allowed into the building.

The safety of our students and staff is always a top priority of the WSD, so please be patient! The implementation of these new security measures may increase the time it takes to enter a school during the instructional day.
