Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! 

On behalf of all my colleagues, thank you for choosing Edmonds Heights, “A dynamic learning community for all students to become their best selves”. 
This will certainly be an unusual school year, and together we will make a difference for our students and families. 
EHK12 is a safe and respectful place for families of different social and economic, racial, political, and religious backgrounds. It is also a school where each family’s educational goals are honored and contribute to the program. We are deeply committed to collaborating with our diverse families who want a more traditional or classical curriculum for their children, families who want more freedom and unstructured exploration for their children, and the whole range in between. 
Our team- teachers, office personnel, library staff, paraeducators, technology support, Workshop Instructors, and custodians- is deeply dedicated to supporting families by providing care, and facilitating the widest range of learning opportunities possible. 
I invite you to stay engaged, whether it is joining your child in class, participating in committee work, working on the Equity Team, or being a part of the myriad other community opportunities we have. Most of all, keep in touch! 
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns, or just want to say hello!
