Meet Ms. Sally Kindergarten Teacher

Ms. Sally why do you love teaching?

I love teaching because I LOVE kids! Being a teacher means I get to personally help influence and guide students into becoming hard working and happy citizens of our classroom, school, and community, while teaching them the foundational skills they'll need to have future success in school.

Meet Merri Emerson 5th grade Teacher

Merri why do you like teaching?

I enjoy creating a sense of community within our classroom that promotes celebrating the uniqueness of every student. I also enjoy helping students become learning advocates for themselves, learning about gaining confidence, and empowering students to believe in themselves academically and socially. 5th graders have the power to share their voice, and it is wonderful to witness them take charge of their learning and share that learned knowledge with their classmates and others. It is astonishing to observe how students grow over the year academically, behaviorally, and socially.

A message about class placement for fall of 2021

Dear Families,

We will be sending out information about who your child's teacher will be next year later in the summer. This will give us more time to plan for students who are re-enrolling at Salish Coast for the Fall.

Lisa Condran


Have a wonderful Summer!

Salish Coast students are Kind, Ready to Learn, Respectful, Safe and Responsible
