Dear Community Members,

Hockinson is addressing current facilities needs and preparing for a strong future with projects on all three campuses. We are thankful for the generosity and foresight of you, our community members, who approved the bond and levy funding that has made this work possible.

Many of you have experienced the hospitality the High School can now offer with its new grandstand and sports pavilion, and our music students are being inspired by the new band room facilities.

At the Middle School construction site, underground utilities and footings are complete, most slabs have been poured, and the walls are rising. We are scheduled to move into the school in time to begin the 2017-18 school year—four months earlier than planned!

At the Elementary School, levy funding has enabled us to bring security up to date, including new fencing and security cameras that help ensure the safety of our youngest learners.

Although facilities have been a major focus this past year or so, it’s what happens inside the classrooms and on the fields that matters most. I am proud to count Hockinson’s creative, caring educators as my colleagues and never cease to be impressed by the accomplishments and efforts of our students. 

Thank you all for the many ways you make this high-quality education possible here in Hockinson.
