Class of 2020 Information:

Biology Course Change:  Because of upcoming changes to district science curriculum to align with the Next Generation Science Standards, students signed up for the single-period Biology/Chemistry 1 course are now enrolled instead in Biology. They will then be able to take Chemistry in 2017-18, and Physics in 2018-19.

Students registered for the two-period Biology/Chemistry block are not affected by this change.

All science classes at Sammamish will continue to use a problem-based learning (PBL) framework, taught in the context of problems and challenges that are authentic to the work of scientists and to local and global communities.

Supporting Strong AttendanceWe expect all students to be on time and attend regularly.  We believe strong communication between home and school supports students who might struggling with attendance.  We ask parents to support their students by helping them to get to school on time and by contacting the school attendance specialist regarding any absence or tardy by calling 425-456-7606, e-mailing or sending a note.
