Summer
 
It's summer! While you might think activity at the school slows way down - we're still hoppin'. We've been doing tours, admitting new students, cleaning classrooms, and working on all kinds of improvement projects. 

We said a sad farewell to alumna, Kellie (Holly) Langenhop - thanks for making our work lives run smoother! 

We're very excited to welcome Daniel Dovinh back to campus as our new all grades music teacher! Read his story below. 

School is just around the corner, but until then enjoy the sunshine and be safe!

Featured Alumni:  Daniel Dovinh
Class of 2008

The SCS staff is excited to welcome Daniel as our new all-school music teacher starting this coming 2016-2017 school year. We asked Daniel to share with us how Shoreline Christian impacted him and what he has been doing since graduating. The following is his response:

" I graduated from SCS in 2008.   Yes, of course, my time at SCS impacted me. I came from a few large public schools and had a bit of a culture shock. I graduated with incredible classmates and friends after my junior high through high school years. I was able to try my hand at multiple musical instruments, sports, and other activities. But most importantly, the relationships I made at SCS continue to be the most impactful part of my time there as a student.
 
Following commencement 2008, I spent the next two years focusing on earning an Associate of Arts Degree from North Seattle Community College with honors.
 
In July 2011, I started Mad Dawg's Hot Dogs (now Mad Dawg's, LLC), Seattle's best flame-broiled sausage stands. Sacrificing over 90% of my college weekends (not an easy task), my family, friends, and I built MDHD to a Seattle favorite and consequently accomplishing my foremost goal: to pay for my music education at Seattle University. That mission was accomplished June 2013. 
 
Since then, I have been playing American rock n' roll in my band, The Ramblin' Years. We have now pressed three releases with many more to come. Last weekend we played at Neumos for Capitol Hill Block Party. Please also find us at  www.theramblinyears.com
 
I teach some private music lessons and have also had opportunities at other private and public schools, but when Jill Hoogerhyde told me that this position was open, I reached out to Tim Visser right away.
 
In coming back to SCS, I am really looking forward to sharing my passion for music with the community through helping students hone their musical passions."
  

Memorial Garden Plaques
In celebration of our 60th anniversary, a space was created for stories - past and present - a memorial garden. 

Now we need stories!  You can tell your story on a plaque that will be attached to the faces of the benches.   Learn more here.
