  • Message from the Superintendent

    I would like to start by thanking all the staff, parents, volunteers and especially the students, for a fantastic 2014-15 school year. Between all the sports, school functions and testing days, it has been fast and busy.  Senior Awards on the 1st and graduation on the 6th had great turnouts of families supporting our graduating seniors, packing our gym and the EWU pavilion. It was great to be a part of graduation. I wish our seniors well on the next part of their journey.

    Our Middle School celebrated the many accomplishments and contributions made by students, staff and parents throughout the school year. New National Junior Honor Society members, Lions Club award winners and PACE students were recognized along with the parents who faithfully attend Parent Advisory meetings and help keep staff morale high with their support. PBIS, Positive Behavior Intervention Support was introduced to the student body at the assembly by teacher Josh Edmondson and a “super hero” student. High School Assistant Principal Chris Spring, was able to speak on how PBIS benefits the high school and it is our hope that it will help upcoming freshmen transition into the program at the high school with ease.

    Hallett Elementary hosted a “Camp READ S’More” with over 200 family groups participating in events that support reading and writing strategies. Families loved eating dinner camp style, singing around the campfire, reading under the stars with flashlights, fishing and hiking for books and exploring the computer lab forest. There were a variety of games where books were handed out as prizes, some by the Gonzaga Crew and their 40 foot boat.

    We are pleased to announce that this summer, Medical Lake School District is going to offer a “Summer Lunch Program”.  All students, ages 18 and younger, will be able to have a morning snack and lunch. Meals will be served at the Middle School with morning snack available at 9:30 am and lunch being served between 12:00 – 12:30 pm. The program will run Monday through Friday, beginning June 21st and ending August 22nd, no food will be served July 3rd. A summer menu is being created and will soon be available.

    Have a fantastic summer, keep reading, keep learning, have fun with your families and be sure to check back with our main page for more updates throughout the summer.

  • 2015 2015 Valedictorian, Stephanie Burris. 
    Salutatorian, Kris Isherwood.
    These 2 students have had several accomplishments during their high school careers. Stephanie was National Honor Society vice-president and won regional for solo/ensemble 4 years running, taking 3rd place in Washington State for the clarinet division the last 2 years. Stephanie plans to attend Pepperdine University in the fall studying music and psychology pursuing a career in music therapy. Kris was president of National Honor Society and first chair for the saxophone section and drum major for band. Kris plans to attend Whitworth University and pursue a degree in the sciences with plans to continue on to medical school and become a doctor. Both students utilized the high school's Advanced Placement classes, taking every class available. We want to wish Stephanie and Kris the best and congratulate all of the graduates of Medical Lake. You make our district proud.

  • Every year OSPI gives the Washington Achievement Award to area schools. Data is collected using the State Board of Education WA Achievement Award Winners Revised Achievement Index. Assessment data from the previous three years is collected and awards are handed out in six separate categories. Medical Lake School District had two schools chosen to receive awards again this year.
