The School Year Is Extended by Three Days

School Year Is Extended By Three Days

Remember when school was canceled on December 9 and again on February 6 and 7 because of ice, snow, and poor road conditions? Those canceled school days will be made up by adding three days to the end of the school year. That means the last day of the 2016-17 school year will be Monday, June 26. Here is how the schedule will look:

• Wednesday, June 21, the day originally scheduled to be the last day of school and also scheduled to be an early-dismissal day, will now be a full day of school.

• Thursday, June 22 and Friday, June 23 will be full school days.

• Monday, June 26 will be the last day of school and will be an early-dismissal day.

Here is the revised 2016-17 calendar:

Leadership Day Thank You

Leadership Day Thank You

A deeply heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who volunteered for Leadership Day. You assisted on a day that could not have come together without your help and I so appreciate it! YOU AMAZED ME...From picking up Starbucks at the last minute, to taking time off work to be here, to filling in when others couldn't make it, to "literally" doing the dirty work of parking cars. What a blessing it was to work with all of you and celebrate our phenomenal kids this year. Well done!

Voice Art

Voice – the 8th Habit.

Mrs. Green and Ms. Beckman's 5th grade Summit classes explored the importance of your voice as an individual and as a collective whole with this "Out of the box" collage project planned by one of our art docents. Each student's pizza box collage is unique in expressing each’s heart, mind, body, and spirit in pictures and words.

A BIG "Thank you!" to Garlic Jim's Pizza in Mukilteo for being our pizza partner in art! This art installation for two classrooms was made possible by the donation of 50 pizza boxes!

The power of this instillation can be viewed from all directions. When you look at the entire work from the right, you will see shades of blue, and from the left shades of red. The top follows with all shades of green and the bottom if you look from below is comprised of all purples.

The power of the individual voice and the collective whole with these classes is phenomenal.
