NLMS students enjoyed WE Day


On March 21, twenty-two students and three teachers from North Lake Middle School in Lake Stevens ventured to Seattle's Key Arena to attend WE Day with 15, 000 other students and teachers from around the state of Washington.   

WE Day is an educational event and a movement of young people leading a global and local change.  WE Day strives to empower a generation to shift the world from ME to WE - through how We act, how We give, the choices We make on what to buy and what to wear, the media We consume and experiences with which We choose to engage.  

The students had the opportunity to hear inspiring speakers such as Martin Luther King III, Joe Jonas, Actor Edward Norton, Coach Pete Carroll, Seattle Seahawks Derrick Coleman, Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner and Jermaine Keare.   

Governor Jay Inslee presented Marc and Craig Kielberg (founders of WE Day) with an official proclamation and announced that March 21 was officially known as WE Day in Washington.

The students and teachers were treated to performances by a multitude of fabulous performers like The Connection, Cody Simpson and Flo Rida.   

It was a day full of inspirational stories, great ideas and the many positive changes that WE have made and can continue to make in our community and around the world.  

You can't buy a ticket to WE Day - you earn it through service.  

How did the North Lake Bulldogs get there? Through acts of service at North Lake Middle School and throughout the Lake Stevens community.  

Builders Club held an art supply drive for Children's Hospital, Ambassadors led the Teens for Jeans clothing drive, ASB coordinated the canned food drives for Lil' Hungry Hearts, and students led several other acts of service.   

It was truly an honor for the Bulldog community to attend this event.  We look forward to the future to see what WE can accomplish next!
