THE GRAPEVINE, JUNE 10, 2020
Two campuses, one big parade, June 17
We want to wish everyone a big WMS goodbye for the summer! Please join us for a WMS Community Car Parade, 10-11 a.m., Wednesday, June 17, at the North Creek campus. This is for all families, from both campuses. WMS staff will line the route and wave to you all as you drive through.
You will enter through the North Creek west entrance (directly across from the entrance to Building 2), drive around campus as directed along the way and exit at the northwest driveway. Watch for your friendly traffic directors!
Lost Tombs of Ur
This Cedar/Birch student finished up his history project on ancient Mesopotamia by building a model of the temple complex at Ur and making a video to go along with it.
“It turned into a slightly larger project,” says Jessie Felt.
“This student hit the ball out of the park with this history project!” says his teacher, Amanda Freerksen.
Middle School students present PNW projects
Students from the Ginkgo class gave Expert Project Presentations as part of their Pacific Northwest Studies class. On Monday, June 15, they will present their PNW 3-D Models to fourth and fifth-grade students, and the class will also have a couple of virtual field trips. Students have selected a variety of options and will be presenting them to the class for votes.
Getting creative for remote learning
A Toddler from the Apricot class works on a creative home activity; and a kindergarten student from the Oak class shares a picture of himself wearing traditional Gujarati clothing called Kediyu. He was inspired by reading about clothes from around the world on ReadWorks. Select a photo below to see a larger version.
