THE GRAPEVINE, JUNE 18, 2020
Congratulations to our Class of 2020!
This wasn’t, thanks to COVID-19, the ceremony that we had originally envisioned for our graduating senior, Taylor Sibthorp. But as our Class of 2020, Taylor has graduated, receiving her diploma on June 12 from Head of School Sunita Pailoor in a very brief, socially-distanced ceremony.
Taylor will enroll at Macalester College in Minn., and we wish her all the best. Taylor’s senior project is a well-researched piece of journalism on City of Bothell planning. It will be posted and available for all to read in the Raven Review, the newsletter of the High School and Middle School.
First-ever WMS Community Car Parade was a joy
Finally, after all these months, the WMS community was able to be together again, if only via vehicles, masks and social distancing! Cars, some decorated, full of smiling faces and signs, drove around the North Creek campus on Wednesday morning, as faculty and staff waved, danced, held signs, said goodbyes and directed traffic.
Though it wasn't possible to photograph everyone, we saw you, and we are so grateful for all of you!
Thank you, volunteers
Every year, WMS parents, grandparents and alumni dedicate countless hours of their time in support of our community. Volunteers have helped in the classroom, offered their professional expertise, led community events and workshops, catered luncheons for staff and faculty, showcased the WMS community through admissions tours and more.
This time at home has proven even more just how dedicated and selfless our volunteers are. From the WMS Task Force’s significant accomplishments within the WMS and greater communities; to room parents keeping vital connections in place for students and parents; to our volunteer gala committee moving an entire auction online, among many more.
As this extraordinary school year is coming to an end, we wish we can celebrate in-person the incredible contributions of time and effort from all of our parent volunteers, because we truly appreciate everything you do. Thank you for all of the ways you have made a difference for our school this year!—Laureen Ng, Director of Development
