As you may already know, our school board approved a plan to place a capital facilities bond on the ballot for February 10, 2015. This plan was developed by an 18-member Facilities Advisory Committee and includes the replacement of the middle school, originally constructed in 1947, additional classrooms at an overcrowded Nooksack Elementary, and multiple projects at our high school. The high school work includes the replacement of the 1954 section, construction of a new fitness center (includes weight and wrestling), and renovations of Agricultural Science and Wood Shop, Art, Cafeteria and Kitchen.
In order to address these and several other items, the committee and board believe a bond is a priority for our schools and our community. You will have several opportunities in the next several months to learn more about the scope of the bond.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your involvement in, and support of, Nooksack Valley Schools. We can be proud of the outstanding teaching and learning occurring in our classrooms every day. Thank you for taking the first step in assuring quality facilities in which our children can learn and grow!

Have you ever considered working as a substitute employee? The role of a substitute teacher or staff member is highly valued by the District. Substitutes provide services which allow the District to continue a quality educational program when a staff member is absent. Substitutes work in both certificated (teaching) and classified (support) positions (i.e., office support, food service workers, custodians, bus drivers, etc.)
Both volunteer and substitute employment packets may be obtained at the District office. If you are interested in finding out more information about either of these opportunities, or if you would like to have materials mailed to you, please contact
