  • Football Games at Chimacum High School

    10/3 and 10/17

    Kickoff 3:00 pm

    Please do not arrive on campus before 2:00 pm the day of the game. Please plan on parking in the main parking areas in front of the school. We will have staff available on site to help direct you to available parking spaces. Please enter through the front entrance of the high school commons. Please avoid walking through the bus loop; use sidewalks as buses will be moving through the bus loop. Please also avoid walking in or around the elementary school as classes will be in session.

    We have added additional seating to our facility but ask that you bring lawn chairs as seating is still limited. We will have a concession stand as well as Chimacum gear for sale at the game.

    We appreciate your help in making this a positive and memorable event for Chimacum students and athletes. We remind you that this is a drug, alcohol, tobacco and weapons free campus.

  • Chimacum High School Wins State’s Highest Honor

    Washington Achievement Award combines state’s Accountability Index and federal accountability criteria

     
    Chimacum High School is one of the schools receiving this award for our students’ improvement on math and reading tests over the past 3 years.
     

    OLYMPIA— A total of 413 schools are 2013 Washington Achievement Award winners. Winners were notified Monday via email from State Superintendent Randy Dorn and State Board of Education Chair Dr. Kristina Mayer.

     

    The Washington Achievement Award is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. Award winners are selected using the state’s Accountability Index and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver.

     

    “It is important that we use the revised Achievement Index to not only provide feedback to schools and districts on their progress, but also to identify schools with exemplary student performance,” said Mayer. “These awards shine the light on what is working well in schools across Washington.”

     

    Schools are recognized as top performers in one of six categories:

     

    • Overall Excellence
    • High Progress
    • Reading Growth
    • Math Growth
    • Extended Graduation Rate (awarded to high schools and comprehensive schools only)
    • English Language Acquisition

     

    Dorn supports this collaboration. “So many schools in our state are doing good work to make a difference for kids,” he said. “These awards represent some of the best. It’s an honor to recognize them and celebrate their success.”

                                             

    The award-winning schools will be honored at a ceremony on April 24 at Timberline High School in Lacey.

  • Marijuana Use Prevention

    As you are aware, marijuana was legalized in our state this past year, and licensed stores will begin selling marijuana in the Spring. However, marijuana use is still illegal for anyone under the age of 21. Research shows that parents are the primary influence on their child’s behavior, making parents essential to prevention. Here are some helpful prevention guides.
