We have a concept plan, informed by you, that we’re really proud of. Come tell us what you think! The next phase, design development, is crucial. This is where the dream gets the details. Our amazing landscape architects will be collecting ideas and making improvements to the plan based on your feedback. We are committed to creating a place where everybody belongs. More Info.
We have a number of children who may wander or even run out of a classroom when a door is left open. Please help us keep children safe and remember to close the classroom door when you enter and exit the room. We will be putting up signs on the doors to remind all staff, families and visitors to close the door and keep children safe.
This week we are officially launching our school wide Food Explorers Mealtime and Nutrition Curriculum. All classrooms will be using the curriculum to present new foods and activities with foods such as cooking projects, art projects, science experiments, and more!

It is with great sadness that we say ‘goodbye’ and ‘thank you’ to a Haring Center hero, Cecile Lindquist, who passed away on April 10th, 2019.
Cecile was a visionary and fierce advocate for individuals with special needs. Among her many great accomplishments in the areas of special education and early intervention, Cecile helped author and lobby to pass Washington’s House Bill 90 (HB 90), “Education for All”. When passed in 1971, HB 90 became the first law in the nation to mandate public education for children with disabilities. This law changed the lives of children across Washington, and established the foundation for a federal education law – the law that would eventually become the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Cecile worked at the Haring Center’s Experimental Education Unit (EEU) in admissions and community relations for more than 30 years. Her impact is lasting, and Cecile will continue to serve as an example of true advocacy and public service.
We owe so much to Cecile, and send our deepest condolences to her family and those who loved her.
