Weekly Update from the Superintendent

Dear students, staff, families and community,

The Mount Baker Coalition is once again offering a Strengthening Families Program on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. starting October 18 and ending November 29.  It is specifically for parents and caregivers of children 10 to 14 years old.  This wonderful program is free and includes dinner for each Tuesday evening event.  You can learn more about this program and sign up here.

This Friday, October 7 there is no school for students.  Teachers, counselors, and other certificated staff will be learning how to access and analyze data using a new platform for student data management.  This will strengthen their collaborative work for meeting the academic and social emotional needs of all students. 

There will be school on Monday, but I would like to honor that it is Indigenous Peoples’ Day.  We celebrate the histories, cultures, and perspectives of the Indigenous peoples and their ancestors who have lived on the land and waterways we share since time immemorial.  We are deeply grateful for our neighbors, the Nooksack Tribe and Lummi Nations for their care and protection of this beautiful place in which we live. 

Be sure to stay updated on our many activities and celebrations in the District by visiting www.mtbaker.wednet.edu on a regular basis.

Go Baker!
