Schedule Changes

We want you to be aware that it's possible your student may have a schedule change on Monday, September 26th. The counseling team has been working on scheduling adjustments to appropriately place students in reading or math interventions. Other schedule changes may also occur as the counseling team is also working on adding students to Showalter's new Theater Arts classes and attempting to adjust class rosters across all subjects to create more balanced class sizes. While making these changes, counselors will prioritize keeping students with their current teachers. If you have any questions or concerns about schedule changes, please contact your student's counselors at the contact information below:

Maintenance & Custodial Staff Appreciation

In honor of Custodial Staff Appreciation Week, we would like to give a big shout-out to the custodial team here at Showalter! Keeping a school full of students and staff in shape is hard work. Our custodians work hard to make our school shine, and they’re always happy to help! Thank you Edin, our head custodian, and your team, Tai, Rosario, and Henry!

ORCA Cards

Chromebooks

Just a reminder that this year Chromebooks will stay in the school. Students will have access in to Chromebooks during class. If a student needs a Chromebook for homework, they may check out a device one day at a time with a written request from their teacher.

Showalter Leadership Team

We are looking for parents to be part of the Showalter leadership team. We meet on Wednesdays from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. once a month. Please contact Brett Christopher (christopherb@tukwila.wednet.edu)  if interested. The leadership team is responsible for school improvement planning & school-wide decision making.

After School All-Stars

The After School All-Stars are back this year! This after school program offers an hour of homework/academic help as well as activities like coding, cooking, art, photography, music, sports, dance, yoga, and more. The program starts on September 26th and runs Monday-Thursday 2:30 - 5:00 p.m. It also runs on Wednesday Early Release days 12:00 - 2:30 p.m. If your child was registered for the 2022 ASAS Summer Program, they do NOT need to re-register, but please email Abbie Carr to inform her of your child's interest in joining the fall after-school program.
