Mill Creek Garden Club proudly awards $3,614.72 with our 2014-15 “Giving through Gardening” school grants. This program was established to award funds for garden-related, student involved projects from five local elementary schools. We are constantly amazed by the creativity and learning-enhancing plans of these Everett School District Principals and Teachers. Good job all!

Everett School District to change Woodside Elementary and Silver Lake Elementary boundaries to ease overcrowding

Everett School District enrollment has grown from about 8,000 students in 1951 to more than 19,000 students in 2015.

Starting next fall the Everett School District will be making boundary changes to help with overcrowding at Woodside Elementary School.

Some Woodside students may move to Silver Lake Elementary until more permanent elementary classroom space can be added in the region.

Jackson High School’s Leah Shin is one of Washington’s top youth volunteers

Lea Shin received one of the two 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Washington State.

When told she was one of just two students in Washington to win the 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Award all Shin could think of was others, “… the immense support I received from my family, the Literacy for Love team, Henry M. Jackson High School, the University of Washington Foster School of Business: Young Executives of Color Program, and most importantly the entire Mill Creek/Bothell community.”
