Class of 2023! Did you miss out on ordering your cap and gown during senior week in October? Jostens extended the discounted price deadline through Friday, December 16.

Visit the WHS Class of 2023 website under Activities for the order link or see the TV screens for a QR Code.

Questions? Email jostenspnw@jostens.com or phone 360-653-9102.


Did you buy a 2022-23 yearbook? Final sales window open through Friday, 12/16!

The final sales window to purchase a 2022-23 yearbook is open now through Friday, December 16! Yearbooks are $55 and are sold on a pre-sale basis ONLY online through TouchBase and at the Main/Cashier's Office with cash/check/debit/credit. Pursuant to resale tax rules, yearbooks will not be sold at any other time during the school year.

Please plan accordingly as many students who believe they do not want a yearbook now feel differently as the school year comes to a close and they are unable to purchase one!

  • Parents/Guardians can check TouchBase history to see if a yearbook was purchased. 
  • A list by student number indicating if a yearbook was purchased through Tuesday, November 29 has also been posted outside the Cashier's Office.

Please be reminded if during the course of the year more than one yearbook is purchased there will be no refunds.  If you purchase two yearbooks, you will be given two books, not one book and a refund for the other.

Direct yearbook inquires to Adviser Sharon Alder at salder@nsd.org.


Falcons, a couple of reminders as we launch into 2nd quarter: 

Lunchtime Open Campus Privilege for Seniors  

The lunchtime open campus privilege is available only to seniors. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors must remain on campus during lunch unless excused and checked out through the Attendance Office.  

Staff Lot Doors – Not for entry during the school day 

The staff parking lot entry doors on the first floor are locked and not to be used for entering the building during the school day. This is for everyone's safety and to preserve valuable instructional time. Entrance to the building during the school day is at the main foyer or theatre/gym foyer doors.  

Elevators for Students with Accommodation

Thank you for using the stairs. The elevators are for use with permission for students who need accommodations. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated!

High School Accreditation 2022-23

Woodinville High School is participating in the Washington State Accreditation process this school year. 

  • This is a voluntary process that takes place every 6 years, where we demonstrate that here at WHS we provide our students with a high quality and rigorous education.
  • Accreditation is an inquiry-based process, tightly aligned to our Strategic Action Plan, and the work we do at WHS. 
  • Accreditation is not only an internal review of how we are doing in meeting our goals, but also an external review process where we share our work and improvement plan with both a site evaluation review team and a state level review panel.

We are excited about the process and showing off what a great school we have!

Cultural News

November is Native American Heritage Month

In addition to Thanksgiving happening on Thursday, we also have Friday off for Native American Heritage Day. There are mixed feelings amongst native communities about Native American Heritage Day occurring on what is also referred to as “Black Friday.” This day began to be acknowledged nation-wide in 2008.


Student Celebrations 


Senior Ava Bettermann’s artwork presented for display in Superintendent Tolley’s office 

Congratulations to Senior Ava Bettermann whose artwork was presented for display in Superintendent Tolley’s office alongside Principal CriscioneArt Teacher Matt Fryher mom, and brother on Thursday, November 17. Ava used Guache and colored pencils to create the semi-realism piece that is mainly based on adaptive daydreaming.  

Congratulations were further extended, as Ava has been accepted into SCAD: The Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, where Ava is interested in three majors: Illustration, Sequential Art, and Video Game Design. Ava, who has been enrolled in WHS art courses each year since 9th grade, is currently taking AP Studio Art 2-D Design Portfolio, after taking AP Studio Art Drawing last year as a junior. Ava expressed thanks to Mr. Fry for his instruction and support here at WHS.
