2016-17 Course Catalog
High School course information for both Bonney Lake and Sumner high schools are combined into one catalog. This catalog has been designed to provide you with the tools you need to make choices that will benefit you now and in the years to come. The catalog will help guide course selection and decisions. With the materials and tools provided, you can plan for success in high school and prepare for post-secondary goals.

High school should be enjoyable, yet challenging. The Sumner School District is proud of the variety and quality of programs and opportunities offered and is excited to share this information with students and families.  It is important to explore the options presented and be informed consumers of our school system. Please take the time to study the catalog and registration materials carefully.

Guidance Counselors are available if you need assistance or are looking for additional information regarding any of the educational programs.

Community Scholarship
Many local scholarships are available to Bonney Lake High School seniors through the Sumner-Bonney Lake Education Foundation.  The Foundation is a collaboration between local businesses, education, and community leaders and its purpose is to raise funds to support student scholarships, enrichment and outreach programs.  The Education Foundation serves to recognize graduating seniors for their merit, community activities, academics, athletics, financial needs, and/or educational goals.

Attendance Waivers for the 2016-17 School Year
Waiver Applications for the 2016-17 school year need to be submitted January 1 - April 15, 2016, for optimal consideration. Resident students who wish to attend a school other than their resident school must complete the In-District Waiver Application beginning March 1.  Out-of-District Waiver Applications are required each year for continued attendance.  In-District Waiver Applications are not required each year for continued attendance unless transitioning to another school.  (Example:  Elementary to Middle School, or Middle School to High School).  Visit the District Website for more information.

  • January 1 – February 29:    Existing Out-of-District Waiver Applications need to be submitted during this period for optimal consideration. 
  • March 1 - April 15:  New Out-of-District Waiver Applications and In-District Waiver Applications need to be submitted during this period for optimal consideration.
  • April 16 – May 31:  Waiver Applications received during this period will be considered for acceptance based on school capacity.
  • June 1 - September 20:  Waiver Applications received during this period will be considered after September 20 based on school capacity.

English Math 7th Hour
All students must pass their English and Math classes as well as state testing (SBAC in English and Math) in order to graduate. This is a hurdle for some BLHS students. Failing classes and/or not passing state testing results in students replacing their Elective courses with remedial courses or courses designed to help them pass state testing. To help students avoid this and pass their courses & state testing, we are instituting a new program. We are calling it EM7, which stands for 7th hour English and Math Support Class. A 7th hour class is held after school, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. EM7 will run from December 16, 2015 though January 28, 2016.

  • 7th hour goes from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. 
  • English Support Class will run every Monday and Wednesday
  • Math Support Class will run every Tuesday and Thursday. 
  • There will be two certificated teachers in the program to assist students.
  • A letter will be sent home on December 11 notifying students & parents if they are in EM7
  • Students will also be notified in class on December 14

This is not an "optional" program. I, as well as the rest of the BLHS staff, am dedicated to the success of every student. We will do our part. Students need to do theirs. A student is able to earn their way out of EM7 by getting their grade up to a 70% or better.

We have an activity bus, which leaves BLHS at 4:15 p.m. to take students home

Activity Bus
BLHS has a an Activity Bus that runs Monday through Thursday. It leaves the high school at approximately 4:15 p.m. 

We also have an Assessment/Support Center, staffed with certified teacher after school assist students. Students may (and should) stay after school and get all the support they need to be successful in school.
