ASB Elections didn’t start until the end of October.  If you remember, back then, students were not in a face-to-face learning environment.  Candidates submitted forms and created campaign videos that were shown over Zoom for the elections.  First-time elected  ASB Vice President Skylie Voie, and seventh-grader at Chehalis Middle School, remembers the process as a [...]

"We did a couple of at-home labs via zoom, but it wasn't anything like this," Calli Warren shares as she paused to think about science labs back in the Fall before we were face-to-face in the science lab.  In the STEM program, Calli and her peers participated in the flame test lab, a favorite in [...]

A Message from the Superintendent: The best learning experience for our students. The first semester of the 2020-21 school year has ended, and we are “March”ing towards spring.  Yes, that pun was intended.  We have moved forward together by opening our hearts and minds, imagining new ways, and seizing new opportunities to grow and learn.  [...]

Thoughts from School Board Director J Vander Stoep

2021-03-19T12:04:41-07:00February 19th, 2021|Chehalis Middle School, Chehalis School District, CTE, Green Hill Academy, James W. Lintott Elementary|

I used to think that vocational education, now called CTE, was a separate pathway for Chehalis students who were not going to college. Growing up I heard adults, including sometimes teachers and counselors, say that certain students were not "college material."

Celebrating Our Staff: Caty Lieske

2021-02-01T11:22:28-08:00October 2nd, 2020|Uncategorized|

She reflected on her first time teaching before she began student teaching back in college. It was in a village in Tanzania. The language spoken [...]
