Hi! My name is Mikhaila Hutchison, and I live in Silverdale, which is right around Poulsbo and Bremerton. I'm a junior this year. When I'm not working on school, I like to draw, write, and spend time with the people around me.

Science and art are two of my favorite things, but I also love to watch movies and television shows. Someday, I want to make films, either for my primary career, or just as a hobby. I've really been enjoying these last couple years in class with you guys! See you soon! ;D

Eagle Place ~ Class Connect


Wednesday, December 16th, our Eagle Place (optional) Class Connect session will feature Insight's Got Talent! If you're interested in sharing your talent from 12pm -1pm next Wednesday, please fill out the form (link above). Students will be allowed up to 5 minutes to share their talent!

All students and Learning Coaches are welcome to join us to watch and enjoy the talent show, even if they don't want to showcase their talents.


Hi Insight Students! My name is Julie Powers and I am the Counselor for students with last names L-Rh! Hope you all are having a good semester.

A little bit about myself… I started Insight ten years ago during the very first year! We only had seven graduates that first year. We have really grown! I love my job as a Counselor, helping students on their path and transition from high school to college. In my free time I love to paint, and below you'll see a painting of my dog, Odie. He’s a Wheaten Terrier and the love of my life.

If you’d like to see some of my other paintings, here’s my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PaintingsbyOdieandMom/?fref=ts

Thank you for allowing me to share a little about myself! Happy holidays everyone!

National clubs meet online, and include students from across the United States. Clubs will meet online twice a month in November, but only once a month in December and January, due to holidays. Students are welcome to join up to FOUR K12 National Clubs!

Almost all K12 National Clubs are open year-round! The time it takes to hear from a national club after sign-up depends on the timing of the sign-up. Signups are collected every 2 or 3 weeks, so don't worry if you don't hear from the club leader for a week or two!


Making Friends As We Get Older

When we were young kids, making friends was so easy. You would see a kid outside at the park and say hello, and a friendship would begin. In our teenage years it gets more complicated. We grow apart from people as we become adults. Our opinions change, WE change, and we get busy. Then as adults, it gets even more complicated. We have kids, and work tons, and have appointments and sports and the list goes on and on. So how do we make friends when we aren't five anymore?

1. Be kind. Say hello! A simple hello can change someone's whole day. Add a smile :).

2. Be a great listener. Don't just talk - listen to what others have to say.

3. Get off the phone, internet, etc. and GET OUTSIDE. Find a activity, sport, club to join with others who share your interests. It's easier to converse when you have things in common.

4. Be kind. As a person in general be kind. Be helpful, loving, and understanding.

5. Have confidence. People notice our demeanor. Try to get out of your comfort zone a little and make yourself approachable.

6. Be yourself. Make friends that will like you for you.
