Thank you Mr. Long for leading our assembly today in honour of Dr. Martin Luther King. Our students performed choral readings, poems, interpretations of quotes and our choir sang. It was lovely to see so many parents join us!

[01/09/17]   Tomorrow, Monday, January 9, the Twice Exceptional Parent Support Group will be meeting at the Lincoln High School library in Wallingford (current home of Cascadia) at 7pm. Wyeth Jessee, Chief of Student Supports, and Teresa Swanson, NW Regional Special Education Supervisor, will join the group for an evening of discussion about the needs of children with dual exceptionalities and how we can go about addressing them in our schools. All are welcome to attend.

Be sure your child dresses warmly this week- it's going to be a cold one! Our students play outside every day except in cases of heavy precipitation.

[01/03/17]   Happy New Year Thurgood Marshall Families! We will see you back at school tomorrow - Tuesday, January 3, 2017!
