Hello MHS Families,

Happy Friday! Happy President’s Day Weekend! I hope you are excited about the 4-day break and we look forward to seeing you back on campus on Tuesday.   

Staffing Change Announcement: Jessi Traughber has accepted the role as our new Dean of Culture and Transformative Practices. Jessi has begun transitioning to her new role here at Maritime HS this past week and will gradually increase her role into full-time status by Mid-March. Jessi is transitioning to this new role from Highline High School, where she previously served in a similar position. Jessi has a strong background in working with ASB policies and procedures. She is committed to building relationships as her highest priority as an educator. I am excited to partner with Jessi to support our scholars’ success here at MHS. Welcome aboard, Jessi!
