Presenting The Class of 2018

On Thursday, June 12, our entire community came together to celebrate the achievements of Lake Washington Girls Middle School's Class of 2018. 

 Faculty speaker Christine Primomo, STEAM
Class of 2018, nurture and protect this curiosity. Asking questions doesn’t mean you don’t know anything. In fact, when you are curious, you are taking risks, thinking deeply, and having fun.
— Ms. Chistine
 
From the moment we stepped into L-Dub we were shown how to be unique. Instead of nine uniform classrooms, we were shown a range of styles and decorations – no two the same. We were given permission to put a little of ourselves into everything we did. Classrooms filled with art, vocabulary, portraits, lessons, and mantras taught us that we can let our individuality show.
Just like no L-Dub classroom is the same, no L-Dub student is the same. We all have quirks and things that make us special. Instead of being told to conform, at L-Dub, we were able to stand out. We saw role models in the form of color schemes, and quotes. Over the years we added to ourselves, just as our teachers added to their classrooms.

My heroes stay up late answering emails and grading our work. My heroes drive busses full of screaming girls. My heroes tell us to project and to protest, to refuse to be timid. My heroes tell me that they are proud of me and tell the rest of the world the same. My heroes are my teachers, my mentors, my L-Dub community.
