Curriculum night

Dear LWHS parents,

Lake Washington High School’s annual open house/curriculum night is right around the corner! The 2017-18 curriculum night will be held on Wednesday, September 13th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

  • Informative Pre-Session offerings will begin at 5:30pm. (see offerings below)
  • Student class schedule and a map of the school layout will be available at 6pm for you to collect.
  • The formal program will begin in the gym promptly at 6:30 with an opening address from Christina Thomas, LW’s principal.

As the evening progresses, you will have the opportunity to follow your student’s daily schedule of classes and visit each of their teachers. The teachers will be introducing their courses and sharing information about themselves, the course content, and expectations for the school year.

Your support and involvement in your student’s education is vitally important to a successful year of learning and engagement at LWHS. I hope you will join us at curriculum night this year. We are looking forward to another outstanding year at Lake Washington High School!
