Dear Juanita Parents and Families:
Welcome to 2016-2017!
Each year brings tremendous promise for our school and students, especially so this year.
With the overwhelming support of our LWSD community, design plans for a new Juanita High School are well underway. A representative team of students, parents, community and staff collaborated multiple times last year with the architects and designers of what will be our new Juanita High School, scheduled to open in September of 2020!   This will be an exciting year as we continue to develop the design plan for what will be the most impressive building in our school district.
The design and construction timeline has us remaining in our current Juanita schoolhouse for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years. Staging and construction will be in full force for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years prior to the planned opening the following Fall, September 2020.
Moving into the new building would be wonderful for many reasons, including our carrying of the values, passion and heart with which we meet students each September. We are a faculty who love what we do. Each September brings tremendous promise and opportunity to meet and support each of our students in meeting their goals and reaching new heights.
I will hope to meet each of our new parent members of our Juanita family throughout the course of the school year. Our Open House/Curriculum Night occurs on Wednesday, September 21 st @ 6:30 pm and I would encourage you to attend if at all possible. This is a terrific opportunity to meet each of the teachers your children will see daily and make that personal connection.
Throughout the course of the school year, I will be writing in this monthly
"Town Crier" publication as well as sending regular "
Principal EBlasts" via email. You are also welcome to visit and meet with me during our " Coffee/Tea with the Principal" sessions held regularly.
Please expect to hear from me soon and for great things to happen in the 2016-2017 school year.

Reflections Chair Needed  ASAP
The PTSA is looking for a volunteer (or team) to head up the Reflections Art Program at JHS. The Reflections program is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works. It is an easy, fun job that allows students at JHS to share their talents with others. The past chair is more than happy to help train you or co-chairs in the process. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Aalam  
2016-17 Reflections Theme:   "What's Your Story?"
PTSA Ways and Means Chair Needed
The ways and means chair works with the president and treasurer marketing and coordinating fundraisers to meet the PTSA annual budget. Also oversees Community Partnership Program, generating funds from community businesses. Can delegate committees for various projects.  The major PTSA fundraiser, Pass the Hat, already has a chair.  Interested? Contact Aalam
