Important Dates


Greetings Chinook Middle School Community,

We held an earthquake and evacuation drill last Friday and I am very proud of how our students responded. Student safety is a top priority for us at Chinook Middle School and we practice school-wide emergency drills monthly, including lockdown, evacuation, drop-cover-hold, and shelter-in-place, to know how to respond to actual emergencies. See more information about safety and security preparations on the BSD website here.

News and updates are below.

In Partnership,

James Peterson

I-Connect Evening Event for Families: Bellevue High Seniors to Give Advice

  • Date: Wednesday, 1 May 2024
  • Time: 6.15-7.45pm
  • Location: Chinook Middle School Library

If you and your middle schooler are curious what it is like being a student at Bellevue High School (BHS), please join the next I-Connect meeting, “Exit Interview: BHS Seniors Tell All,” where families will have the opportunity to hear from Class of 2024 “experts.” This will be an evening event on Wednesday, 1 May, 6:15-7.45pm in the Chinook Middle School library.

As graduation approaches for the Class of 2024, we will ask a panel of seniors to give us the unvarnished truth. What is the best way for freshmen to make new friends? What types of jobs did they do to fulfill the community service requirement? Did they feel any pressure to experiment with drugs or alcohol? How many colleges did they apply to? We will ask these questions and more. Plus, the seniors will take questions from the audience.

Register here to attend: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/904084FA5AA2EA64-48827251-iconnect

Please arrive early to make your way to the library. We will begin at 6.15pm sharp. No drop-offs allowed; students must be accompanied by an adult. Parents/guardians and students are welcome and encouraged to attend.

I-Connect is an award-winning program sponsored by Chinook PTSA. For more information: [email protected].
