Dear Wilburton Families and Parents,

 

November is Native American Heritage Month and provides all of us with an opportunity for every person in the nation to reflect on our shared nation’s history and honor the Tribal Nations and  tribal citizens who called this land home long before the United States became a country. Wilburton acknowledges that we are on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples who have reserved treaty rights to this land, specifically the Duwamish, dxʷdəwʔabš, and Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, sdukʷalbixʷ. If you would like to learn more about the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, explore their website or find a book at the library about them:

Duwamish Tribe

Snoqualmie Indian Tribe

Please remember to have patience and help keep our school safe during pick up and drop in the parking lot. We all have to work together to ensure that our community can access the parking lot by driving slowly and adhering to basic safety protocols, especially when we have students, staff, and families around.

 

In Partnership,

 

Chhoun Mey

BSD Family Technology Nights

 

Parents, would you like to learn more about the educational technology your student uses here at BSD? Here is your chance.

 

BSD K-12 families are invited to attend one of our educational technology information nights to learn:

  • How parents can access critical information for your student
  • The technology ecosystem your student navigates as a learner
  • How BSD protects students online
  • How parents can get technology help

This is also an opportunity for parents to share your technology needs. Choose the night and location most convenient for you:

 

We look forward to seeing you there.
