Professionalism, ingenuity, compassion, creativity, integrity and grit. This is our Sequim School District staff, and here is where we celebrate their WOW!


WOW


We are so thankful to Ashley Adams for helping my husband apply for a job and her patient explanations and assistance.

Today, a thoughtful community member, in a random act of kindness, delivered coffee to a few of our employees on traffic duty. To the anonymous gifter of coffee - you made our day!

-Thankful, caffeinated and happy crossing guards!



I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for Mrs. Lichten. Every morning she is out front managing the flow of traffic, making sure buses get into the school quickly, and helping parents get out of the parking lot safely as well.

The other thing I notice is the care she gives to the students walking across the street. Not just paying extra attention for their safety but chatting with them and making their first school moment of the day special and off to a good start.

She manages a tough assignment amazingly, and I really appreciate her.
-Grateful Parent



I watched a pro in action, last Thursday.  It was an honor.  I saw Cricket Hagan's 44 years teaching experience displayed in full, by maintaining classroom control and relative calm, while effectively responding to a student who was having a difficult time with self-regulation.  My niece is SO fortunate to be part of her classroom.  I can’t imagine a better learning environment!! Thank you, Thank YOU!!

I just had a mom and daughter in my office raving about how amazing Isaac Rapelje’s first day “fire” experiment was in Chemistry. The mom said her daughter talking about it all night long!

Thank you District Office staff for the help with flagging for the busses! All of us appreciate you so much!
Marcia Bowden, Bus Driver



Absolutely fantastic work coming from Doug Hastings. In the first week, he has stepped up to the plate on a number of levels. He has helped to facilitate new staff coming to the building, helping students manage the lunchroom policies, helped with our custodial staff setting up and taking down materials, and gone above and beyond to show that Greywolf CARES!

Sean O’Mera and his incredible leadership student put on a fantastic welcome back assembly for all of the high school students and staff.

Every single student who got off bus 5-14 today was smiling and laughing.  Students stepping off bus 5-14 seemed to be in great moods and happy to be here. Please pass my appreciation on to that driver would you?
Donna Hudson, Director of Teaching & Learning
I passed this on to the driver or 5-14, Larry Morales. Thank you for noticing, that was spot on. Larry works every day to maintain a respectful relationship with his students, often calling parents to let them know how good their student has been. He is truly a driver who shows up every day to make a difference.
Rich Fulmer, Director of Transportation



Thank you so much for reaching out to me Valorie Knieper! I truly appreciate that the Sequim School District has already contacted me about several positions I hadn't even considered. Honestly, that made a huge difference; normally I wouldn't even have even thought about applying for a middle school position, but after receiving your e-mail I thought, "You know what? I think I would enjoy that job!"

Thank you, Ashley Adams, for organizing and presenting the substitute orientation yesterday.  It is wonderful to see that our district has so many substitutes for this coming school year!  I know that preparing for such a large training can be quite a task, so I thank you for your efforts and expertise, along with those of Becky Stanton and our other presenters.  It was wonderful to come back together and to share in the excitement for our new school year.
