Congratulations to the following New Start High School Students of the Month – a group of impressive students!
Stephen Harrison was selected by the staff to be honored as Student of the Month for April because he has good grades, his attendance record is one of the best, he excels at sports (basketball), is focused and a hard worker. He is a junior who has only been at New Start for one session, but has already made much progress. He comes to us from Idaho. He made the decision to come here so that he could make a fresh start and get back on track with his grades. He is thinking about pursuing mechanical engineering after high school, preferably at the UW where he might play basketball!
Ariana Sanchez was selected by the staff to be honored as Student of the Month for April because she is a great example to other students for how to succeed in school. She is always on time, focused, has good grades and has learned to become an advocate for herself. She is a sophomore who came to New Start to get more personal attention from teachers than she could get in her comprehensive high school. She values the one-on-one help teachers give her when she needs it. The schedule at NSHS also fits her needs better. Her goal is to attend PSSE to earn her credential to be an interpreter.

Neighborhoods Matter: Eighth graders in the Highline School District have at higher risk of drug use than students in King County overall. The Coalition for Drug-Free Youth addresses youth drug use by educating, inspiring and empowering us to create a healthy environment in North Highline. Maddi Story and VeeVee Wang will introduce us to the Coalition’s “I Know What’s Right for Me” marijuana and vaping prevention campaign.
Congratulations to the Cascade Middle School Drug & Alcohol Prevention Team for their recent Green Globe award! King County recognized the students as a “Leader in Community Stewardship” for their work at Dick Thurnau Memorial Park.
“From picking up litter to habitat restoration projects, they have done more than a dozen after-school events and are committed to making a positive impact in their community.”
Well done team!
