Just to remind you that Open Enrollment ends this Friday, the 15th at

Also, know an outstanding educator or education volunteer?  KCTS Channel 9 is accepting nominations for their Golden Apple Award

Any person contributing time or services in Washington state schools from pre-K through grade 12 can be nominated.

Nominations can be made online at or you can request a nomination form by calling (800) 766-0900. Nomination forms must be postmarked by April 30. 

 The Good News - Washington Middle School student, Deanta Kelly, won the Regional Spelling Bee for King and Snohomish Counties and will advance to the Nationals (it appears there isn't a state championship).  It looks grueling with 3 rounds over 2 days in Washington, D.C. in June.   Deanta won on the word "obfuscatory."

I can't spell well at all so I am always very impressed with great spelling.  Go Deanta!

We have known Deanta since she was a preschooler—a more deserving kid could not be found! Kudos! and, in the Harry Potter tradition...hazah!
