International School Student Chosen as Winner for Washington State in Doodle for Google Student Contest. - 05/18/23

A talented Washington State based student could soon have her art on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see. Google is announcing the 55 State and Territory winners in its 15th annual Doodle for Google competition, a contest where K-12 students across the United States have the opportunity to create their own version of the Google logo inspired by the prompt “I am grateful for....”. 


Rebecca Wu, a 6th grader from International School in Bellevue, is one of the 55 US State and Territory Winners. Her Doodle is “My Sweetest Memories.” Rebecca’s Doodle was selected from thousands of entries received this year. Students at International School helped Rebecca celebrate during a surprise assembly.


To help their favorites succeed, everyone across the U,S. can vote for their favorite Doodle from the 54 State and Territory Winners. Voting will be open from May 18-25 on this site: and the public vote will determine the Five National Finalists (one in each grade group). Google will announce these five National Finalists in late May, one of whom will have their Doodle featured on the Google homepage for a day. 


The National Winner will take home a $30,000 college scholarship and their school will receive a $50,000 tech package towards the establishment or improvement of a computer lab or technology program.

Recognizing BSD Educators during Teacher Appreciation Week - 05/09/23

Recognizing BSD Educators during Teacher Appreciation Week 

As an ongoing acknowledgement of the profession and people who support BSD students 

BELLEVUE, Wash. — "Educators help begin and end the day with ways to engage and challenge the minds of our youth. They are a joy for many students, staff, and families. We hold them in esteem always but take this national observance to publicly say thank you," shares Interim Superintendent Dr. Art Jarvis about Bellevue professionals. Incoming Superintendent Dr. Kelly Aramaki says, "Thank you for giving our kids such an amazing education. I also want to thank the teachers around the district for inspiring and loving our kids. This Teacher Appreciation Week, I want our teachers to know that we couldn't do it without you. You are so amazing, and you are what makes the Bellevue School District so great."   

The National Education Association encourages us all to #ThankATeacher. BSD will share sentiments from the community throughout the week on social media and in person. Both Interim and Incoming Superintendents Jarvis and Aramaki will share with each school, handwritten notes from them and a token of appreciation.  

We are cultivating joy! In his address to staff in April during professional development and planning with BSD administrators, Incoming Superintendent Dr. Kelly Aramaki shares his commitment to district staff, students, and families, his vision for a future of flourishing in the Bellevue School District, and the five priorities that will help us get there. The five priorities are:  

Student and Staff Well-Being  

Beloved Community in Bellevue  

A Generation of Solutionaries  

Innovation – Dream It. Do It.  

Cultivating Joy
