September Family Newsletter

The first week of school has been successful for all!  It has been great to see all our students and families back at school.  This week the students have been focusing on getting to know their few classroom communities and reviewing and learning school wide expectations.  Many of them have enjoyed the video that was put together by our Student Well Being leadership team that shows the Expected behaviors and “unexpected” behaviors in our common spaces such as walking in the hallways, arrival, dismissal, etc.  The kids most enjoy the videos of the “what not to do” (unexpected behavior) as the teachers were the stars of those videos!  Then, to show the “expected” behaviors, students from last year are the stars!  It has been a great way to review and show how to move about our building in a safe, efficient way!  #WeAreFamily #Wilburtonwolves Read More

Family Newsletter: Back to School in Two Weeks!

We are just a couple weeks away from the first day of school and our staff is back and getting ready for a great year!  This year promises to be a year of fun and learning for all students, families, and staff.  Once the school year begins, The Wilburton Family Newsletter will come to your email inbox and posted on our website the first week of each month and shares school information for everyone.  For now, you get a “mid-month” edition as we gear up for the school year.  #WeAreFamily #Wilburtonwolves Read More

June Family Newsletter

I started this school year as a principal who had a vision, a dream, and was a little nervous about what to expect.  As I reflect on the school year- from planning and preparation to getting ready to close for the summer, the words that come to mind are: Family, Grateful, Supported, Blessed, and Collaboration.  This team of teachers, students, and community is one special group. Nothing is too big for our Wilburton Family to tackle. Our vision of providing a relevant, adaptive, and rigorous learning environment is being realized for each of our students! I am so proud of the work we did together this year to open this school. The learning, the innovation, the instruction, and most importantly the relationships we have all created are ones that will last a lifetime.   So, as we finish up our inaugural year with a lot more LEARNING and a whole lot of FUN, it will be time to reset, relax, and get rejuvenated so we can come back in September and make year two even better than year one! Enjoy your summer together with your friends and family. I can’t wait to hear about your adventures when we return in September. #WeAreFamily Sincerely, Beth Hamilton Principal Read More

Updated BSD Calendar for 2018-19  
Last Day of School Now June 21 for 2018-19 School Year Missed school days due to snow – five total in February – will result in the school year being extended by one day. The last day of school for the Bellevue School District will be Friday, June 21. One additional makeup day will also be added on Friday, March 15. The day was originally a planned professional development day for teachers, but all students will now be expected to attend school that day. March 18 is now a professional development day for all certified staff, and will remain a no school day for all students. The district will request a waiver from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for the remaining three missed school days due to snow. Additional days could still be added pending approval by the state of the district waiver request.
