Next year’s school calendar altered
Because of the mandatory Washington Assessment of Student Learning testing dates recently scheduled by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Shoreline Education Association and Shoreline School District have agreed to change the 2005-06 and 2006-07 calendars by moving non-student workdays in April to October.
The exact dates being moved are: April 24, 2006, to October 17, 2005 and April 23, 2007, to October 16, 2006.
The one-page calendars published on the Web site have revised to reflect this change. It can be viewed by visiting: http://www.shorelineschools.org/calendar/
Additionally, next year’s wall calendar with student art will reflect the revised calendar dates.

Locals earn WAVE scholarships
Three local students recently received a Washington Award for Vocational Excellence (WAVE) scholarship, which provides two years of free tuition at a university, community or technical college, or licensed private vocational school located in Washington state. Colin Adams, a graduate of Shorecrest High School, Shannon Smith, a Shorewood High School graduate, and Yong Jie Locker, a local resident who attends Bellevue Community College, each received an award.
Administered by the Workforce Education and Coordinating Board, WAVE honors three students in each of the state’s 49 legislative districts for outstanding occupational achievement, leadership and community service in career and technical education. Nominated by their instructors, the more than 400 applicants who apply annually are then screened and selected by a committee representing business, labor, education, government and interested citizens.
