Watch video: What’s up Doc? at the new Alderwood Elementary

A Message from Superintendent Greg Baker

Dear staff, students and families,

I recently had the chance to visit with two awesome students at Alderwood Elementary School. Principal Micah Smith and I got to answer their questions and talk with them about their new school building and their reflections about attending an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. I really appreciated their thoughtful and sometimes hilarious questions.

I hope you will watch this edition of “What’s up Doc?,” a recurring feature where students interview me on a variety of topics.


New Alderwood and Parkview elementary schools were opened this fall thanks to voter support of our facilities bond in February 2018. We have made great strides in building outstanding schools for our students, staff and community, and we still have more to do! As you may know, we have a facilities planning task force that is working to develop a recommendation regarding long-range facilities, which could result in putting a bond on the ballot in February 2022.

As always, let me know if you have questions about our schools and facilities, and special thanks to our video stars!

Greg Baker
