Join the community in celebrating the completion of the new Shorecrest High School campus from 12 noon to 4pm on Saturday, Sept. 27 at the school, 15343 25th NE. 

The event will feature a barbecue lunch hosted by the Shorecrest Boosters beginning at 12 noon, with entertainment by The PopOffs cover band. The dedication program begins at 1:15pm in the gymnasium, featuring the Shorecrest Highlanders marching band, pipers, flag team and cheer squad, the Highland Dancers and Hip Hop team.

A ribbon cutting will follow the dedication program at the entrance to new main academic building. The building will then be open to self-guided tours from 2 to 4 pm. Culinary Arts students will be serving delicious treats in the Commons and Food Services will have milk and whole-grain cookies in the cafeteria. 

Student musicians will perform in the theater beginning at 2:30, including the Chansons choir, jazz combo and pianist Christopher Richardson.

Shorecrest alumni are invited to visit the Library on the second floor after the dedication ceremony to browse through past issues of the Loch yearbook and the Highland Piper student newspaper, sign up for upcoming alumni opportunities and events, and to receive information about a future Shorecrest Alumni Association.

On-site parking will be limited at Shorecrest, but overflow parking will be available at Hamlin Park and at Kellogg Middle School. A shuttle bus will run continuously between Kellogg and Shorecrest.

Shorecrest’s main academic building and gymnasium were replaced and the theater upgraded in phases over the past three years. Students began using the main building in February 2014. 

The new buildings were designed by Integrus Architecture and constructed by Spee West Construction. A bond issue approved by Shoreline School District voters in 2010 combined with matching funds from the state paid for the construction. The old Shorecrest was demolished this summer and is being replaced by parking areas, plazas and landscaping.

Across the District, Shorewood High School was replaced at the same time, with the academic building, gymnasium and theater opening in September 2013. The school’s athletic fields are being constructed on the southern portion of the campus and include a football/soccer field and track, six tennis courts, and practice baseball and softball fields.
