All-School Parent Group Starting January 13th on Wednesday at 2:00 with the topic 'Mental Wellness for Students'

Our parent groups will be merging. There will no longer be separate parent meetings on Mondays/Tuesdays. The new group will take place on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.

Our first topic, 'Mental Wellness for Students' will be facilitated by Denelle DeVries and Katrina Johnston. All topics for this group were pulled from the fall parent survey.

January Schedule:

January 13th - Mental Wellness for Students"

No group January 27th due to our 'no Zoom week' for the start of 2nd semester.

Calling all parents and students! As we move into second semester at the end of January, we would like feedback regarding the day that homework is distributed and collected. Please complete the one-question survey by Friday, January 15. Thank you!

Where Are They Now? Academy Alumnus Emma Heiland: Successful Dental Technician and Artist

I attended Skagit Academy beginning in 7th grade. I graduated high school from SVC through Running Start in 2017. During my Sophomore year of high school, I attended NCTA and completed their Dental Assisting program. After high school, I transferred to BTC to become a Certified Dental Assistant. I currently work at Hilde Family Dentistry in Burlington.

Apart from being an avid reader, art has always been a passion for me, and I spend much of my free time painting. I hope to someday have my works scanned so I am able to sell prints as well as original pieces.

2nd semester Integrated Electives with Choice Boards

We will not be having our usual second semester registration for LC electives this year. Instead, you can remain in your present class. Additionally, where there is capacity, you can switch to another teacher team or add an elective if you are not already in one. Just one elective session per student please.

You can register your student through WINGS from Friday, January 22 to Thursday, January 28. Zoom classes will resume the week of February 1. You may also add a K-4 Core class at this time as well.

The choice board activities are the same regardless of which teacher team you are enrolled with.
