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 [...]

We have come to rely on technology in ways we never imagined.  From cloud storage, email, zoom, live streaming, wireless connectivity, and so much more - each and every day in the Chehalis School District, technology shapes how we teach, learn and collaborate.  It wasn't always a robust technological culture here, and Casey Schmidt, CSD [...]

Thoughts from School Board Director J Vander Stoep

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." Over the past few years I've listened to experts in CTE, read studies and [...]

Fall Athletics is in Full Swing! The sound of running shoes on a track, football pads colliding against each other, a tennis ball spiked by a racquet, or the squeak of shoes on a gym floor - all sounds that are happening this week in the Chehalis School District.   Fall sports began on February 1 [...]

"All we want is for them to be happy, to have a job where they can support themselves and a family." Kerri is in the business of success. When you hear her talk about what it [...]

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 [...]

West High School, they were poised and ready for a career, college, or both. This has been the vision, and students in Chehalis rose to the expectation. But they [...]
