Letter from Principal Christina Thomas   


Dear Parents,


Spring is just around the corner, we hope. March is a very busy month. State testing will be conducted on Tuesday, March 18th - Thursday, March 20th. We have adjusted the schedule to accommodate this testing. The schedule is on the webpage. All sophomores and juniors will be tested. Sophomores will be taking the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE). This is a graduation requirement so it is imperative that students attend school all three days. The juniors will be piloting the new Smarter Balanced Assessment which will begin next year. All juniors should be in school for this assessment. Seniors who are behind in their senior project or have not completed their level 5 essays are also required to be at school each day to complete these. Please talk with your student about their responsibilities during this time.


Our drama department will be putting on their spring musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, on Thursday - Saturday, March 13th,14th and 15th. We hope you will be able to come out and see these students share their talents.  


Congratulations to both our boys' and girls' basketball teams for qualifying for state. Both teams have had an outstanding season. We also want to congratulate our Robotics team who have qualified again to go to the World Championship competition in California later this year.  


Best of luck to our spring athletes as they begin their seasons.


Happy Spring!


Christina Thomas, principal

LW VEX Robotics Team Wins State Championship
Will head to the World Championships in CA for 2nd year in a row
The Lake Washington HS Robotics Club won the Washington State VEX Robotics Championship. The 35 top teams in the state competed for state honors and nine invitations to the VRC World Championships. All three LW teams, 4770, 4770A and 4770X, placed in the top 8 in preliminaries. 4770 went on to win top honors as "Tournament Champions" and earn their berth in the "Worlds", the other two teams did very well, but were eliminated in the second round of the quarter finals.

This is the second year in a row that team 4770 has represented Lake Washington at the World Championships. The World championships will draw over 400 teams and 15,000 contestants from around the world. It is a testament to the drive, abilities and intelligence of our Robotics kids to place in an event such as this. Washington State has over 150 robotics clubs/teams, there are over 7000 teams worldwide and to be among the top 400 to qualify is an honor.

Please be proud of and congratulate all of the Robotics Club members - they worked hard as a team for the team.

LW Philosophy Club Takes 2nd Place in WA State Ethics Bowl 

  The Lake Washington High School Philosophy Club is extremely excited to announce that our Ethics Bowl Team achieved a second place finish in the First Annual Washington State High School Ethics Bowl, held at the University of Washington on Saturday Feb. 1st, 2014!

Our LW team competed against 22 high school teams from all over the state of Washington including the International School, Lakeside School, STEM School, and Roosevelt High School.

Students were asked to evaluate ethical cases ranging from "arming rebels in other countries" to "compensation for college athletes" to "synthetically produced food."  They had to take a position on a question related to the case and discuss their reasoning for that position in front of a panel of judges and a competing team that analyzed and commented on their argument.

Judges included members of the State Attorney General's Office, Philosophy faculty from the University of Washington, state court judges and local attorneys, so our students received tough questions and good advice about forming arguments.

Our team was the only team to win all three morning rounds, after which they advanced to a four-team semi-final.  We then defeated Roosevelt High School to advance to the finals, where we lost a very close match to Seattle Academy. The team and club are so excited to share the "hardware" they won with Kang Nation, and will be presenting their trophy to our Administration.

Swim and Dive

Congratulations to Nick Reeves, Conner Gerth, Elijah Singstad and Austin Lashley. They are STATE CHAMPIONS in the 200-yard freestyle relay. They tied Lindbergh and both were acknowledged as champs! The LW Swim and Dive team finished 5th in state, out of 33 schools present. Great job Coach Hale and his staff! (Read about their victory in the Kirkland Reporter.)  



Please congratulate our gymnastics team for finishing 6th in state! Great job Coach Katie and her staff.



Let's not forget the 3 LW wrestlers Benson Hull, Saul Del Rio and Eduard Kravchuk, who all qualified for State. Benson and Saul both made it to the third round before being eliminated.  (They essentially tied for 9th place out of 16 wrestlers who made it to state!) Even though our team is small in number compared to many of the other 2A schools, sending three wrestlers to state is a huge accomplishment. Congratulations to Benson, Saul, Eduard and Coaches Becher and Riojos!
