A Thank You to Enumclaw School District Voters!

….so, so very grateful to every single person across our community who supported our bond effort in reaching a SUPER majority passing percentage!

YOU and individuals like you who supported our efforts are the Legacy Leaders in our community. You have helped our school district do something that has not been done in decades….pass a bond on its first attempt! Statistically, across our state, only 37% of school bonds pass on their first attempt. As many of you are aware, it took five attempts for the bond to build Thunder Mountain Middle School to reach the 60% threshold. School Districts, unlike other taxing entities, must not only receive a majority vote (50% + 1), they must reach a SUPER majority of 60%!

You are a Legacy Leader because you led the efforts to transform our school system by restoring Enumclaw High School. In a single high school district, this will have a profoundly positive cultural and economic impact that will ripple through all aspects of our residential and business community.

You are a Legacy Leader because you led the efforts to transform our school system by rebuilding Black Diamond Elementary. Currently Black Diamond Elementary is the only school in Black Diamond. Because of its central location in the community, this building and field are continuously used morning and night; only second to community use at Enumclaw High School. A new Black Diamond Elementary will also have a profound and positive cultural and economic impact that will ripple through all aspects of our residential and business community.

I am so very grateful to each of you for your help, support and love during the past year. It was a collective effort that helped us reach the supermajority of 60%! I know our Board of Directors and staff members feel blessed by your outpouring of support for this bond.

We now look forward to entering the next stage in this process! What a joy it will be to open a new Black Diamond Elementary in September 2017 and a restored Enumclaw High School in September 2018! We estimate a combined 25,000+ students will walk the halls at EHS and Black Diamond Elementary during the next 50+ years….what a legacy you have left for future generations!

Many blessings to each of you!
