    Superintendent: Citizen’s Guide to the Budget

    Lakewood has — and continues to be — committed to being strong stewards of taxpayer dollars and ensuring financial transparency to our community. We work to ensure that the use of our resources is in alignment with our district priorities and ensuring high levels of learning and growth for all students. I firmly believe that creating open lines of communication supports both clarity and the development of trust. With this focus in mind, our staff has developed a Lakewood School District Citizen’s Guide to the Budget. Read more from Superintendent Dr. Erin Murphy.

    Summer Academy: Learning continues inside and outside the classroom

    Learning is an adventure! During these past three weeks at Lakewood Summer Academy, students went on adventures designed by our committed Summer Academy teachers. They learned how to collaborate with other kids (sometimes from a different elementary school), they stretched their muscles in new ways, and they explored the natural world around us. Read more.

    Backpack: The only item on your school supply list

    Beginning in the 2023-24 school year, Lakewood School District will provide all school supplies for students except for a backpack. If families cannot provide a backpack, schools will help students access one with the help of our community partners. Multiyear grants from the Stillaguamish Tribe partially supported this change over the last several years. We are happy to make back-to-school an exciting time for all students.
