Ms. Kate has a background in both video game development as well as being the newest member of the D&D design team. Mr. Jeremy is the lead rules designer for D&D and is an outspoken advocate for diversity and inclusivity in gaming.
Thanks, Mr. E!

Hearing from Malli (GM) and Michelle (Instructor) from @dirtfishrally about this rad rally car driving school. These gals talked to us about working in a male-dominated field, the current movement in women in racing, engineering, and teamwork. DirtFish teaches car control, confidence, and safety behind the wheel, through advanced driving techniques built from the roots of rally. From fifteen years of age with a learner’s permit, all the way up to the sophisticated age of 85, they teach everyone! Thank you for inspiring our girls! #ifshecanseeitshecanbeit ❤️💪🏽 Thank you also to alumna parents Alex Vollmer and @meredithlv for connecting L-Dub with DirtFish! 🏎

Well done, Class of 2019! STEAM Fair is a wrap and was awesome! Thank you to Ms. Christine, our esteemed judges, and students for keeping science, statistics, data, research, presentations, and public speaking so cool. 💪🏽 (Pictured: Lola and Ali presenting on the effects of sugar on short term memory.)
Admissions decisions are in the mail. #ldubclassof2021 ❤️
Oh, Pi Day, you’re so darn fun. And awesome. And tasty. Thanks to the STEAM department for a great day of learning and shenanigans...and pie. Congrats to Ali ‘18 on a whopping 793 digits of Pi (and thus the privilege to pie Ms. Hearn! 😳), and to Lucia ‘20, for that right hook! 💪🏽 We danced, sang, and paid homage to math! And our day was topped off with a cameo from our beloved retired math teacher, Ms. Straley...what a day! ❤️
Lake Washington Girls Middle School students, faculty, and staff joined the protest today against gun violence for #NationalWalkoutDay. The protest was in response to the 17 people killed at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, one month ago today. The student-led initiative included a reading of the victims’ names, personal reflections, and a moment of silence and solidarity. #NotOneMore #EnoughIsEnough #NeverAgain #EndGunViolence #Enough
The cast of Charlotte’s Web has a chance encounter with a real pig! Uncle? Break a leg in today’s closing performance, all! 🕸🕷🐷
