Washington Kids in Transition Champion SLH Library!


SLH’s Library Program is lucky to have such a magnificent parent group. Recently, they connected us with Kim Gorney, of Washington Kids in Transition, who is dedicated to helping our library program receive equitable funding and updated, engaging reading materials. I created a Wishlist with the help of students and staff, and Kim posted the wishlist on Amazon.


The response has already been incredible! We would love to thank the Rotory club for the pledge to purchase 90 new books for our library, as well as the many members of our community who have already purchased over 50 books from our Wishlist.


If you would like to purchase a book, visit Washington Kids in Transition for instructions and more information, or access this link to the Amazon Wishlist. Every book on the list will make a difference to our amazing students.

Frequently Asked Google Classroom Questions

Q: I am trying to “make a copy” of an assignment on Classroom for each student, but the only options listed are:

  • students can view file
  • students can edit file

A: Chances are, Classroom won’t let you “make a copy” because you have already this assignment, and so options are limited. To be able to “make a copy”, you will need to delete the entire assignment & create it again, choosing to “make a copy” right then and there before you save it.

Join us December 11th for the Creating a Success Culture Conference!

Creating a Success Culture, by Scriber Lake Teachers

Creating a Success Culture, by Scriber Lake Teachers

How do we create a school with heart and soul? A place that focuses more on supporting students’ dreams for the future than getting through a curriculum? What if we change our conversations with students from transactions–which often maintain the status quo–to transformations, where nothing stays the same?

The staff of Scriber Lake HS accepted a 3-year challenge to imagine these possibilities and develop systems around them. We went on a journey to empower our disenfranchised students using 17 questions designed to bring them back into the center of their own education. Join us for an afternoon to learn how we have shaped the culture of our school through the use of Appreciative Inquiry and Trauma-Informed Practices.

Where: Lynnwood High School

When: December 11th from 11:30 AM-3:00 PM

Check out the sessions and register online in the PD Portal.
