Northshore School Board Studying Recommendation to Address Enrollment Growth

Northshore School District

Housing construction in the north and central corridor of the Northshore School District has accelerated over the past few years with large parcels of land being cleared for hundreds of new homes. As a result, enrollment in this area is growing rapidly and schools are nearing or exceeding capacity. Over-enrollment at a school negatively impacts instructional opportunities for students. Temporary measures such as additional portable classrooms, limiting in and out of district attendance waivers, moving specialized programs and bussing students away from neighborhood schools are not appropriate or sustainable long-term solutions.


The district's Enrollment Demographics Task Force (EDTF) - a representative group of school board and superintendent appointed parents, community members and staff - has been closely studying this issue for the past two years and recently submitted a report to the School Board with a consensus recommendation prioritizing two options.

Less than two weeks after the Bastyr University California Grand Opening, the state's first and only accredited school of naturopathic medicine today announces the addition of a new teaching clinic.

"And Then There Were None" to play at the Northshore Senior Center
Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays in October

Northshore Center Center "And Then There Were None" will be performed by Curtain Call Theatre in our very own Northshore Senior Center.

Ticket prices are:
$15.00 for General public; $12.50 for Seniors and Children 10 and under; Groups of 10 or more $12.00 each

In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "soldiers" met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two  house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead --- poisoned. One down and nine to go!

Thursday and Friday performances begin at 8:00 PM: October 18, 19, 25 & 26.
Sunday performances begin at 3:30 PM: October 21 & 28
