    Drive Safely!

    This is a dark and dangerous time of year for driving. The lack of streetlights and sidewalks in our area increases the risk for our students who walk to and from school. We want to encourage students who walk or bike to school to wear reflective vests and helmets. And we want to remind drivers to give the road their full attention at all times. As we move into the winter weather season, we also want to remind you of what to expect when road conditions impact our normal school day. Please visit: https://www.bethelsd.org/Domain/264 to learn more.

     

    Music Matters!

    At a recent School Board meeting, the Spanaway Lake High School band and Spanaway Lake High School choir were awarded grants from the Music Matters License Plate project. A portion of the license fees are set aside to augment school music program funds to enable the purchase of equipment, supplies, and repairs beyond their normal budgeted expenses. To celebrate the grants, Spanaway Lake High School’s Music Company performed at the School Board meeting and were on hand to receive the checks. https://youtu.be/ThLJhjJUiKQ

     

    Podcast Episode 18: It's a POD-knock life!

    Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! Conor and Doug finally unite their lockets and take on the hundred year history of Annie! We also take a peek inside the halls of the Pierce County Skills Center and talk with one of our Teacher Librarians about their work with students. New episodes drop every Thursday. Listen and subscribe at www.bethelsd.org/podcast. 

     

    Bond Project Update

    Winter is just around the corner, but that isn’t stopping our amazing construction teams from making progress on a number of exciting bond projects! https://medium.com/@bethelsd/bond-update-november-2022-ff72b9878d03

     

    Student Transfer Requests for 2023-24

    Student transfer requests for the 2023-24 school year may be completed and submitted online from the district’s website beginning on January 4, 2023. All transfer requests will be done electronically. First consideration deadline for accepting student transfer requests for the 2023-24 school year will be March 10, 2023. Approval or denial of transfer requests will be based on established criteria outlined in School Board policies and procedures 3131 and 3141. Parents will provide transportation for students who voluntarily attend a school outside their attendance area. For more information, call Mary Ann Mulloy-White at 253-800-2012 for secondary or Rayna Messer at 253-800-2014 for elementary.

     

    Students who are currently approved for in-district student transfers do not have to complete a new form unless they are changing from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school.

Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2022/23 School Year GKHS families! I am excited to welcome students back to what will be a great school year. At GKHS we believe that Orange and Blue Starts with YOU. YOU stands for “Your personal best everyday,” “Own your future,” and “Understand we are one.” This is the language that teachers use with students as they work toward graduation and life after graduation. We want every student to feel a sense of belonging at GKHS.

    This summer the construction team has been busy at work on our expansion project. Students will notice some changes when they return in the fall. The full project- including the 3rd wing – will be complete in the summer of 2023 so this year we will still have areas of the school under construction.

    We have several supports we will offer students this year. We will continue to have the Writing Center available during lunch and study support to work with students for any writing-based assignments such as English or Social Studies papers, Science labs, or other assignments. This will be in room 232. We will have a math tutoring center in room 256 that will be available during all lunches, study support, and select days after school. Students should be aware of these resources and the availability of staff to support them in their learning.

    Sincerly,

    Mr. Yarkosky
