    Congratulations Josilynn, (Josi) on this well-deserved honor of being selected by the La Conner Soroptimists as the February Student of the Month. Josilynn is a senior at La Conner High School and the daughter of Brian Straathof and DeAnna Young.

    Josi is an accomplished student who has been a part of the La Conner community since her sophomore year. As senior class president, she has demonstrated strong leadership skills by leading fundraising efforts and attending various required events. Additionally, she is the student representative to the La Conner School Board and finds it interesting to experience the workings of the board. Josi has also been a part of the La Conner High School soccer team since her junior year and the softball team since her sophomore year. She is also interested in the drama department and has participated in the spring play this year. In her limited free time, she enjoys drawing mixed media and reading for relaxation and enjoyment. She also values spending time with friends and family. She works part-time while maintaining a well-rounded academic profile. Her favorite subjects include art, science, history, and math. Josi plans to continue her education at Skagit Valley College and then transfer to a four-year school to obtain her master's degree. She is especially interested in biology, zoology, and environmental science and hopes to study abroad. She also loves elephants and is interested in archeology and anthropology. For her many pursuits, Josilynn will be awarded a gift certificate to Vintage La Conner, a thrift store operated by volunteers that supports local women and girls through generous community donations. Way to go, Josilynn Straathof!

    We are excited to announce Sarah Walls as the newest Registrar of the La Conner School District. Sarah is a great addition to our family and we are confident that she will excel in this position.

    Sarah is passionate about promoting cultural diversity and community engagement. She and her family have been a part of the La Conner community and school district since 2017. They moved back to Washington from the East Coast and have since been actively involved in the community. Sarah is a dedicated community member who enjoys taking pictures of the beautiful Skagit Valley scenery. She volunteers with the Middle School Yearbook Club and supports the La Conner Braves at various sporting events. She is also very generous and shares her talent by photographing our students doing what they love. Sarah is happily married to Toby, who is our brilliant LCSD Transportation Mechanic and an all-around fix-it guy for our district. She is also a proud mother of Hallie (12th grade) and Sylas (6th grade). With her wealth of experience and deep commitment to supporting our students and staff, Sarah is a valuable addition to our team. She is a member of the Snohomish Tribe of Indians and a descendant of the Lummi Nation, Haida, and Tlingit. She values and celebrates cultural diversity.

  •  Womens Leadership Panel

    In honor of Women's History Month we hosted a Women's Leadership Panel

    Women's Leadership Panel which consisted of four women leaders in various capacities within Skagit County. The panel included two board members of Skagit Women's Alliance and Network (SWAN)- Lauren Rodriguez and Sofie Poulton, members of the Swinomish tribe who are also elected leaders in the community- Alana Quintasket and Barbara James. The panelists shared meaningful experiences about women's contributions to society in the past and the present and shared ways in which girls and young women could empower themselves and those around them to become leaders. It was such an honor to have their presence and support as we celebrate Women's History Month. It was a great reminder to recognize and honor the women in our lives for everything they do and say to uplift us.
