Friday Creative Enrichment Workshop (Ages 8-12)

Projects for the “Rebuild, Refinish, Reuse” workshop are well underway; it’s always fun to discover how many layers and colors of paint are hiding! Sanding the wood is a practice in patience and perseverance and students are reminded that they are building grit as they work toward a finished product – much like walking uphill on a hike and reaching the top with its scenic view.

Annual School Musical

Congratulations to the cast of The Aristocats KIDS for a fun and engaging performance! Integrating the arts doesn’t simply enrich our program, but offers children access to a vital creative resource. Our theater activities include acting games, improvisation, play-writing and an annual musical production.

Ravens Class Field Trip (ages 9-11)

Raven students had a great opportunity to tour the Renton Airport! The students explored so much of the history there, learned about different planes, and how they are maintained. In the flight simulators, each student practiced take off, flying around Renton and landing the airplanes.

Wilderness Explorations Chinook and Kokanee

Chinook and Kokanee had a great fall season exploring, wandering and making great connections as Naturalists. We gathered many colors to make mandala compasses. (This will weave into our return in the spring for our mapping and landmark work.) We closed with our traditional tea, sharing gratitude, highlights, wishes for the coming season and what we look forward to learning in the spring.
