The Places You’ll Go is the title of this year’s yearbook for this year!
Both middle school and elementary school can submit a picture. Middle school students can volunteer to draw pictures to try and have their picture featured on the front cover. Elementary school students may volunteer to draw pictures to try and have their picture featured on the back cover.
All the details and rules can be found here.
Last week Ms. Duncan and the 4th Grade released their fry (small salmon) back into the wild at Carkeek Park. The reintroduction of the salmon was the culmination of their Salmon in the Schools project. While applying such core skills as observation and data collection, students learn about life cycles, interrelationships in ecosystems, environmental stewardship, and the importance of salmon to Pacific Northwest commerce and culture.
National Library Week: “Libraries Transform: Libraries Lead”
This week is National Library Week. Our school library has a collection of almost 8,000 books. Every class in the school comes into the library once a week to check in and out books. This school year our students have collectively checked out over 5,000 books!
The library is also used for school meetings, classes, testing, book clubs, STEM classes, coding club, school commission meetings, open houses, staff meetings, the read naturally program, and explode the code program. Over 70 middle school students attend book club each week!
All of this would not be possible without our three amazing library volunteers – Melissa Murphy, Miriam “Granny” Hansen and Sarah Salentine! They have put in a numerous amount of volunteer hours this school year alone!
We would also like to thank all the school families who support the school library with their book donations and generous spending at the Scholastic Book Fairs!
This year our school’s Rice Bowl/CRS donations totaled and amazing $1226.19!
Thank you to our generous students and families who donated during the Lenten season!
