Each of the award winners was surprised recently by a visit from Superintendent Susana Reyes, announcing their prestigious honor.

In the Shoreline School District, we believe that celebrations, demonstrations of gratitude, and opportunities to come together as a community are important elements of maintaining a positive and welcoming culture for staff, students, families, and the communities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Members of our community look forward to these events and were grateful to see them return in recent years. Despite the budget challenges and reductions in front of us, we welcome the opportunity to lift up these dedicated, deserving members of our school district community and honor their contributions to our students and schools.
