    District's third electric bus delivered

    Dr. Erin Murphy, Superintendent, was on hand to receive Lakewood’s third electric bus on March 14 from Collins Bus Corporation. In 2020, Lakewood applied for and received a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology to purchase three electric school buses at a cost lower than the purchase of diesel-fueled buses. Chargers for the buses – included with the grant – have also been installed. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, electric buses save money, since we don’t have to purchase fuel.

    Cougar Creek fifth graders analyze the impact of trees on their stormwater

    Students in Tiffany Dewitt's fifth grade class measured trees near the playfield and took the estimates back to their classroom as part of their Earth Day activities. Plugging in the type of tree and their numbers to the MyTree website, they were able to estimate how much water the trees pull out of the ground each year – helping to dry out their playfield during our wet winters.

    School Library Month: Books and learning come together in the library

    Second-graders at Lakewood Elementary listened intently in the library recently as school librarian Ashley Miller read “The Boy Who Loved Maps” by Kari Allen. April is National School Library Month, a time when we celebrate our school libraries and the librarians who make them a special place where students can find that just-right book.

    Students learn significance of local plants and animals to Stillaguamish culture

    Thank you to the Stillaguamish Tribe for providing a wonderful learning experience for some of our elementary students. Students had the opportunity to learn about Pacific Northwest plants and animals, the lifecycle of a salmon, traditional woven baskets and accessories, tools, and drums through interactive displays. They also had a chance to sample some sweet fry bread during lunch. Read more.
