A note from Kim

Rob and I are so excited to have this opportunity to serve the students, families, and staff in the community that shaped who we are today. We appreciate the trust our school board members have placed in us to continue to build on the excellence at MLSD.

Medical Lake and Fairchild Air Force Base have collectively come together to provide outstanding support for our district so we can ensure a quality education for all of our students.

It is from the combined communities foundation that our Medical Lake Promise, shared below, was developed. A commitment that our school board and I are making as we work to fulfill these promises includes adding more opportunities for both student and parent voices through the development of advisory groups. We know the best way to understand the needs of our system is to ask and listen to those experiencing it firsthand.

Additionally, we will be communicating regularly through monthly district-wide newsletters to share our programs and upcoming events. This month we are highlighting the Summer Groups we are hosting at our Wellness Center as well as some of the programs the Medical Lake City Parks and Recreation and the Library are offering for our community.

We are looking forward to meeting you soon at our meet and greets or just out and about around the community, sharing our plans and the great things happening at MLSD.

Hope you are having a great summer!
