Weekly Update from the Superintendent

Dear students, staff, families and community,

The best two hours of my weekend were spent in our auditorium watching the Mount Baker High School production of The Little Mermaid. The acting and music are delightful for all ages.  You still have the opportunity to attend this production this Thursday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.  Here is a link for more information. 

Winter sports are wrapping up.  Congratulations and thank you to both our Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball Teams’ student athletes, parents, and coaches for a great season of basketball!

Both the Boys’ and Girls’ Wresting Teams took first place at sub-regionals this past weekend.  This weekend both teams head for regionals.  Boys will be competing at home in the Mount Baker Field House starting at 11:00 a.m.  Girls will be competing at Sedro Woolley starting at 10:00 a.m.  See Sub-Regional results below.  Good luck to our Mountaineer Wrestlers this weekend!  Go Baker!

School counselors help students in more ways than you may know.  This week we celebrate our amazing Mount Baker School District counseling team as part of National School Counselors Week 2023.  We appreciate all they do for our students and families!

February is Black History Month.  A continued engagement with history is vital as it helps give context for the present.  Black History Month is an opportunity to understand Black histories, going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight Black achievement. Please check out this link for information and resources. 

I have enjoyed some great conversations with parents recently.  Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share with me.  I appreciate our Mount Baker Community so much, and I am always willing to listen and engage in conversation.
