Mission

Cascade creates responsible, lifelong learners in a safe and respectful environment where all are inspired to excel, value their community, and celebrate diversity.

Principal

Dear Cascade families and community members,

I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Cascade community as your principal. In the coming months, I look forward to meeting many of you and learning about your children. In my time in education, I have been a teacher in New Orleans and Seattle, and an administrator in Boston and most recently in Highline.

At Cascade, we are fortunate to have a student body that represents the diversity of White Center with over 20 languages spoken and many cultures represented. We have dedicated staff who work each and every day to provide an excellent education for our students.

Our mission at Cascade is to create responsible, lifelong learners in a safe and respectful environment where all are inspired to excel, value their community, and celebrate diversity. We have many programs at Cascade that support our mission: World Language, after school classes through Community Schools Collaboration, and robust professional development for our teachers across all subjects. I am excited to share that one way we are carrying out our mission this year is by becoming a Blended Learning school with more technology to help our teachers individualize their instruction. This means we can better support students who need extra help and we can push students who need extra challenge. Students will have more independence working with technology, and teachers will be freed up to provide more attention to small groups and individual students.

Your voice is critical in making our mission come alive at Cascade. We need your input and support. I encourage you to join me for monthly Coffee Chats with the Principal. Consult our Family Bulletins under the "News" section of our webpage and the calendar as well for additional activities and events at Cascade.  My door is always open, so feel free to stop by and introduce yourself anytime!

Here’s to a great year at Cascade!

Sincerely,

 
Libby Debell (formerly Culclasure) 
Principal

  • Washington is Not the Only State to Offer Students a Shortcut to College Courses Through State Test

    High school students now have one more good reason to take the Smarter Balanced assessment (SBA). Students who perform well on the new state test will be able to skip college placement tests and non-credit courses. Doing well on the test guarantees students won’t spend time or money in remedial courses in college.
