A Letter from the Head of School

By: Michael C. Smith, Ed.D.

There is great power in setting goals. Even the word “goal” has the power to inspire us.

I played soccer from age five. When I hear “goal,” I see a ball hitting the back of a net and feel the endorphin rush of success. The US Women’s World Cup Team filled me with pure joy as they pressed toward their record fourth championship this past summer. I’m inspired when I watch a team execute years of practice in every little thing they do to achieve their ultimate objective. Read more >> about A Letter from the Head of School

Welcome to SCS New Faculty and Staff!

Alice Hanh - Events Coordinator

My name is Alice Hanh, and I am so pleased to be here! While receiving my bachelor’s in journalism at UW Seattle, I was a tutor for many years teaching ELL students English. Having my own small business working in education sparked my interest for teaching and community. I have had experience in student teaching 3rd grade, being an executive assistant for a tutoring company and online retail store, to management roles, such as operations manager and camp director. My favorite job so far has been working as the Camp Director at Run To Win Outreach, a nonprofit ministry serving our youth through sports.

Wintermission is Coming

By: Adam Haulter

There is often a bit of drudgery implied by the beginning of January at a school. The excitement and regale of the holiday season has come to a sharp close and life must resume anew within our halls. Shoreline Christian is obviously not immune to this malaise. We realize that the dark and cold days of winter are upon us and there is work to do as finals approach and the exams, curriculum and projects we mentally postponed back in mid-December have returned to challenge us.

Unwrapping Gifts at Full Life Center

Posted by Sue Visser, Kindergarten Teacher

The First Graders, Kindergartners, and Second graders are making a difference, and have been doing so for the last ten to twelve years. Several times during the school year, we visit a place called Full Life Center, a daycare facility for the elderly, stroke patients, and physical and developmentally disabled. They contacted our school to see if we would be interested in visiting their facility several times per year.

What Makes Parents In Prayer (PIP) Special

Posted by Tuvette McCroskey, SCS Parent and PIP co-leader with Jen Colver

How does it feel to be known and loved?

I began attending PIP ten years ago when my oldest was 10 and my youngest was beginning kindergarten.  I was looking for community and joining a prayer group seemed like a good place to start.  I was a “young mom”, new to the school and was instantly in awe of the prayer leader, Chris Kredit, who had kids in HIGH SCHOOL!

What If? Dreaming Big

Posted by Erika Bakker, 2nd Grade Teacher

As I help students develop their writing skills, I often have them play with the question, “What if?”.  The children usually ask the question on their own.  It comes naturally.  I help them linger there for a while.  “What if?” is the gateway to all sorts of fun.  We go on long and silly tangents, making long lists of wild possibilities. 

Several months ago, the second graders enjoyed hearing the story called “The Littles” by John Peterson.  In the story, a family of very small people live in the walls of a house.  The Little family watches the Bigg family, borrowing small things, feasting on leftover crumbs and often helping to solve Bigg problems – all without being seen.
