Uniform vests donated to Catholic School in Zambia

In the spring of 2017, we were notified by Dennis Uniform (our uniform provider for over 40 years) that they would be changing the shade of green they offered for uniform vests.  The dark hunter green color that we had grown accustomed to was changed to a lighter version of green.  So after much internal discussion and many negotiations with Dennis Uniform Company, we decided to require the new color for the 2017-2018 school year in order for all students to be "in uniform".  To offset the cost of a new vest, Dennis offered vouchers to families which Exciting News Leave a comment

7th Grade Salmon Release

Our Salmon Project began at the end of last school year when we received a grant from the Fulcrum Foundation which provided the funds needed to purchase a 60 gallon tank and all the equipment needed to successfully launch a salmon research and release program for our students.

The excitement within our student ...

The Rise of Addictive Technology

I had the opportunity to attend a presentation earlier this week at Town Hall Seattle on The Rise of Addictive Technology.
