Thank You Shorewood Boosters!

Please join me in thanking the Shorewood Booster volunteers for the tremendously successful 2014 auction on March 8th.
With the opening of the new Shorewood, the theme was “the next generation” in homage to Star Trek.  Parents, community members and alumni joined together with spirit and pride to support SHWS sports, clubs and activities.  What a great party it was, with hundreds in attendance.  Dozens of students volunteered.  District and community leaders came to participate. SWHS Culinary Arts catered the event, and our community donated dozens of items to inspire the attendees to give generously.
Our gross receipts for the auction were $106,955 which is a new record. With the generous fund-a-need we will add more of the students’ favorite furnishings to our beautiful new facility.  Clubs and activities raised money through the event to provide for the great quality of life our students enjoy.
Thank you and thanks to all the booster leadership and members for bringing our community together.

High School Proficiency Exam – March 2014

The High School Proficiency Exam in Writing and Reading will be administered on March 18, 19 and 20.  All Shorewood students need to meet standard in reading and writing in order to graduate.  It is expected that all students with sophomore status will test in March.  Any juniors and seniors who haven’t tested or have yet to meet standard should plan on testing as well.  The schedule is altered so that regular classes don’t begin until 10:50 AM on test days.  Students who aren’t testing need to provide their own transportation if they don’t report to school until the start of period 1 or 2.  Students not testing may study quietly in the library, attend Advanced Placement (AP) Review sessions or a special Homework Club for grade 9 students.  The most up-to-date information about state testing is available at:  http://www.k12.wa.us/GraduationRequirements.  To test, students should bring at least two #2 pencils and homework or a book to read if finished early. If desired, it’s also advisable to bring a snack and water bottle.

Dear Students and Parents,

You may have noticed a call for increased computer science education in the media lately as industry has pointed out a shortage of computer science qualification and experience among US secondary students.  With the modest growth in our school and the opening of our new facilities,   I am pleased to announce that Shoreline High Schools will be offering a new computer science class called Exploring Computer Science (ECS) next fall. Please look out for the course description and sign up in the registration materials coming out just after the winter break.

Computer science provides an important foundation for many 21st century careers, including foundational knowledge that can be applied to virtually every field from architecture to zoology.  Our new ECS class is being offered in partnership with the non-profit Code.org. This is the same organization who organized last year’s “Hour of Code,” in which over 20 million students participated, including several students from our district. The feedback received from parents, students, and teachers about the Hour of Code was overwhelmingly positive.  Offering this class is the first step in satisfying the growing demand for computer science in our community, and we expect feedback about this new class to be equally positive. From here, we look forward to adding a sequence of computer science classes that build upon the foundation in ECS to engage student in topics such as web design, gaming, robotics, more advanced programming and advanced placement computer science for college credit in the high school.

I hope that you will help your student consider enrolling in this exciting career pathway. Please contact me or your student’s counselor if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Bill Dunbar
Principal
