It is with much gratitude and appreciation to the voters throughout the Enumclaw School District that we share with you that our Replacement of Expiring Levy for Educational Programs and Operations levy passed with 56% on election night. Thank you so much, Enumclaw School District voters!

We received outstanding news from FORMA Construction, the general contractor, about the progress at Enumclaw High School. The new classroom wings, Library, expanded Commons, spacious hallways and Career Center will open 2.5 months EARLY. That’s right, our students will be learning in sophisticated new classrooms 44 school days earlier than anticipated (not to mention staying warm and dry indoors during passing time!). The timeline for the entire project, including the classrooms for Choir, Band and Orchestra, will move forward 2.5 months ahead of schedule. We look forward to celebrating the opening of the new spaces next fall with our community. The Open House date is tentatively set for October 8, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. Thank you for sharing in our excitement for our high school team and the phenomenal learning spaces!

Last month we took a group of EHS alumni through the new construction portion of the building and captured their reactions on camera. Their enthusiasm for the learning and social opportunities in the new spaces is contagious. If you have a moment, view the video on our website, Facebook page, or YouTube channel. You can see the progress our construction crews are making and check out the new spaces for yourself.

Until next month, Happy Learning!
