Mount Baker SD #507

Educational Excellence and Community Pride


  • April 24, 2019

    Dear Mount Baker Community,

    Some of you may be aware that the District has been restricted in its ability to expand its facilities at all due to restrictions in place because of the square footage of buildings on each of our sites.

    We've been working with the County and two (2) consultants (Scot Swanson & Jay Irwin) to have the legal restrictions amended. 

    Acme and the High School in particular know the impact of this all too well.  We've not been able to install a permanent portable at Acme and we've not been able to even put in a storage unit on the High School campus for track equipment because of these restrictions.

    Last night at the County Council meeting, we had the chance to present the challenges present law has on the District to the Whatcom County Council leading up to a vote for the proposed amendment to be acted upon.

    The County Council voted unanimously to the amendment and barring any appeals the District will be able to follow the normal permitting process to expand when necessary.

    I would like to personally thank Ben Thomas and Cameron Johnson for their leadership in this endeavor.  This involved months of teamwork!

    Mary Sewright, MBSD Superintendent

  • Mount Baker

     Proud to be Mountaineers

    When the morning greets the valley
    and the eagle starts to fly
    Sunlight peaking o'er the Mountain
    Lights the dome of Baker High

    Hear the dreams that guide our future
    Hear the ties that bind our lives
    hear the friends we've come to cherish
    Hear our goals for which we strive

    And the path that we have chosen
    is a trail of joy and tears
    but the strength we've found together
    leads us on to be Mountaineers

    Give us streams and we will cross them
    Valleys deep will bring no fears
    Give us mountains, we will climb them
    After all, we are Mountaineers

    And with those who've gone before us
    May we stand amidst the cheers
    for we've climbed a lofty mountain
    and we're proud to be Mountaineers
    yes, we're proud to be Mountaineers.
