Gabi Parrish (11) takes a quarantine hike. As far as local, short, scenic hikes, Little Si is a great one. It's only 3 miles long and has a stunning view of Snoqualmie Valley. "It's nice because you can bring friends and still follow the social distancing guidelines," Parrish said.

In recent years, rising student activism in our district and surrounding area has seen the results of incredible change. Last year, we fought to keep our 8-period schedule with student involvement and parent encouragement; nationally, in 2018, we walked out in solidarity with students across the nation after the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.
