The End Is Near: FINALS ARE COMING!
Dread.  Anxiety.  Fear.  Many students experience one or a combination of these emotions when they think about semester finals.  With careful planning, though, these emotions can be lessened. Preparation is the key.  Students should know what is going to be tested and how the test will be formatted.  For instance, will the semester exam cover the entire semester?  Will the exam be essay questions or multiple guess?  If there is anything that a student doesn’t understand, meeting with the teacher early is critical.   This translates into reviewing for the final early and consistently.  Research has shown that cramming the night ... read full article

Moving to a 7 period school day.Christina Thomas12/6/20171/26/2018
Moving to a 7 period school day.
As you may know, the class of 2019, this year’s eleventh graders, have a twenty-four credit requirement to graduate. This decision was made at the state level several years ago. With the district’s current schedule of a 6-period day, students only have twenty-four opportunities. The district and Lake Washington High School have an interest in providing more opportunities for students to either extend their learning or make-up any loss of credit. In an effort to meet this need, a task force consisting of parents, teachers, administrators and district personnel met for two years exploring options. The end result was a ... read full article
