Construction at the new LWGMS site is approaching a significant milestone in the creation of our school’s new – and permanent – home. To celebrate, on Friday, January 25, LWGMS students, faculty, staff, and honored guests will have the opportunity to be a part of the project by putting their mark on a steel beam that will be included in the new building. This special beam, painted white, will be permanently installed during a "topping off" ceremony tentatively set for Feb. 6. In true L-Dub style, we will sign the beam with red markers. Check out this time-lapse of how far we’ve come! 💪🏽🌈❤️ #ANewHomeForLDub

Friday, January 18, L-Dub students, faculty, and staff marched alongside our friends from @Giddens.School, @seattlegirlsschool, @seattlepublicschools, and #kingstreetcoop for Giddens’ annual student March for Peace & Justice to honor the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. Together, our students assembled to share messages of kindness, inclusion, and advocacy.
Organized by student government and the parents’ Equity and Social Justice Committee, on Monday, January 21, a contingent of L-Dub students and families honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and marched in Seattle’s 37th annual MLK Jr. March.
Both were powerful days of remembrance and reminders to honor Dr. King through our words, actions, and service today and every day. 👊🏽❤️ #MLK #MLKday #love #peace #Serve #DrKing #LegacyOfService #KingLegacy #GiveBack #SocialImpact #SocialGood #Kindness #ChangeTheWorld #LightTheWorld #BeTheChange #LiveTheDream

#GivingTuesday is going strong and we are loving all the kindness and generosity we’re seeing out in the world (of social media)! This day of giving is proof that every act of generosity counts, every act of kindness is felt, and that both mean even more when we band together. Thank you to all who have donated to L-Dub so far – parents, trustees, faculty and staff, friends, alum. We appreciate you! Your donations, large and small, mean so much to us. The giving goes on until midnight for those who would like to participate. ❤️❤️
Move over, Black Friday -- #GivingTuesday – a MUCH better day in our opinion – is almost here! On Tuesday we hope to reach both 100% current community participation in this year’s Fuerza Fund and to raise $5,000 or more - but we can’t do it without you. Visit our link in bio and make a gift to the Fuerza Fund and show your love to our students, teachers, and families.
PS: If you can please donate via Facebook because processing fees are waived – 100% of the donations made through Facebook Payments will come straight to us! Also, Facebook and PayPal are matching up to a total of $7 million dollars in donations! Who knows what could happen for our small but mighty school!
PPS: Keep your eye on our Facebook page tomorrow! We'll be going LIVE around 2p with a very special performance by Azura Tyabji '14 – L-Dub alum and Seattle's current Youth Poet Laureate – of her original work for female revolution, for girls, the poem she preformed at our 20th Anniversary Gala.

Happy National (Brain) STEM Day from L-Dub!
L-Dub parent and UW Bothell neurobiology adjunct lecturer Bryan White P’19 was back again to treat our seventh grade to opportunities to handle, examine, and discuss a human brain and spinal cord, a sheep brain, and cow eyeballs. It was truly awesome. Swipe left to check out some highlights!
Check this out, people. The most diverse congress in history. 💪🏽🌈❤️#Repost @dapper_stemme with @get_repost
🙌🏾🙌🏾 Friends, I took the time to put this graphic together because we need perspective on last night’s truly historic results after that record-breaking midterm turnout! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅ 100 women were elected to the House⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅We turned several Governor’s Mansions blue⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅ we saw unprecedented elections of LGBTQ, Muslim, Black, Latinx, Native American and young folks⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅Of course the biggest news is that Democrats took control of the House for the first time in 8 years! ⠀⠀Let us not lose sight of this incredible progress. This is the most diverse Congress our country has ever seen and the tide is changing. We outchea!
Thank you to our students, faculty and staff, alum, parents, and guests for a fun and informative open house last night. ❤️💪🏽

We dissent! “People ask me sometimes, when do you think it will it be enough? When will there be enough women on the court? And my answer is when there are nine." “I wish there was a way I could wave a magic wand and put back when people were respectful of each other and the Congress was working for the good of the country and not just along party lines. Someday there will be great people, great elected representatives who will say, ‘enough of this nonsense, let’s be the kind of legislature the United States should have.' I hope that day will come when I’m still alive.” #rbg #NotoriousRBG #vote #useyourvoice #Midterms2018 #Halloween2018 #weare4short
