Plans for Fall 2020

Finnish Schools’s remote teaching will continue on Thursday, September 10th and Saturday, September 12th.

The theme of the year is children’s literature. This theme will guide us in exploring many different kinds of Finnish literature for children and teens while also taking into account the student’s interests and favorite books and stories!

As requested by our parents, we will include Teams/Zoom calls in our curriculum for our school-age students.

We will send more information in a few weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Airi Suomalainen:

Let’s all work together to create a fun and enjoyable remote school for all of us! Welcome back to school!


The Finnish School of Seattle serves and supports all Finnish-minded families in the greater Puget Sound area by enriching their children’s experiences in Finnish.


The Finnish School of Seattle provides a safe and motivating Finnish-speaking learning community for children. With quality programs children learn and maintain Finnish language as well as gain an appreciation for Finnish-ness.


1. Kids have fun using the Finnish language
2. Kids are happy to learn and speak Finnish
3. Kids are respectful to themselves and others
4. Kids experience Finnish spirit and culture


Every year, the Finnish school teachers come up with a theme to base lesson plans on. Throughout the year we explore the chosen theme through stories, songs, games, and art projects. We also celebrate both Finnish and American holidays through the school year.

One of the art projects from last spring was to create a self portrait using materials from the nature. Kids were creative and now we have a wonderful collage of some those art works. Have a look and enjoy!
