Did you miss the CREST Fall Festival this past Saturday? To view the highlights of the fun event go to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District's new YouTube page. Community members enjoyed a cider press, face painting, CREST Farm tours, Jr. Scoop ice cream, seed saving, the WLWV Bee Club, and much more.
What's better than pizza for lunch? How about pizza with grandpa and grandma. That was the case at Athey Creek Middle School on Tuesday, Oct. 10, when the school hosted Grandparents Day Lunch. The special occasion allowed for students to show off their school while sharing a tasty meal with family.
Children's author Kathryn Otoshi made a special visit to Lowrie Primary on Monday, Oct. 9, sharing her message of inclusivity, acceptance and tolerance before leading the school in a special book reading and book signing. Joined by a handful of Lowrie parents, students and staff enjoyed the eventful morning, getting the chance to meet one of their favorite authors.
Wilsonville High School celebrated with its annual Homecoming Parade on Friday, Oct. 6. Floats themed after board game titles Monopoly, Clue, Candy Land, and Operation traversed their way throughout Wilsonville neighborhoods before winding their way back to Wilsonville High for the school's varsity football game against St. Helens. Community members reveled as WHS students tossed candy to eager children and the WHS marching band played the school's fight song. To watch a video of the Homecoming Parade festivities, visit the West Linn-Wilsonville YouTube page.
Between bikes, scooters, and even tricycles, Lowrie students put pedal to the medal at the school's annual Wheel-A-Thon on Friday, Oct. 6. Enjoying sunny weather, the PTA-sponsored event was once again a hit for students and staff alike. Students brought bikes from home, and a number of community-donated bikes were also given to those without wheels of their own. Taking turns by grade level, students rode around the perimeter of the school, making sure to keep safe while getting exercise.
To top everything off, Lowrie surpassed its fundraising goal of $20,000 thanks to generous donations from local sponsors and community members. The feat meant Principal Patrick Meigs had to dye his hair and beard orange in celebration of this year's color theme, much to the delight of Lowrie students.
Saludos comunidad escolar de West Linn-Wilsonville -
Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District! This is an exceptional place of teaching, learning and community support. Between our incredible students, dedicated staff, supportive School Board and wonderful community, I can’t imagine a better place in which to learn and lead.
What makes this district so special is that while we draw upon students, families and patrons from two cities, we are ONE community, made stronger by our mission of creating learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people for the world. We have compelling District Goals, that drive strategies and actions for improving how we teach, learn and lead in cultures that are inclusive, courses that are academically rigorous and results that generate equitable outcomes for each child.
This year, our West Linn-Wilsonville theme is “Leading Together”, and I invite members across our community to engage and participate in ways that strengthen our district mission and shine a light on the endeavors of our amazing students.
To a great year!
Kathy Ludwig, Superintendent
¡Bienvenidos al Distrito Escolar de West Linn-Wilsonville!
Este es un lugar excepcional de enseñanza, aprendizaje y apoyo comunitario. Entre nuestros increíbles estudiantes, personal dedicado, apoyo del Consejo Escolar y una maravillosa comunidad, no puedo imaginar un mejor lugar en el cual aprender y liderar.
Que hace a este distrito tan especial es que aun cuando somos estudiantes, familias y patrocinadores de dos ciudades, somos UNA comunidad, que se ha hecho fuerte por nuestra misión de crear comunidades de aprendizaje para los más grandes pensadores y personas reflexivas para el mundo. Tenemos Metas Distritales convincentes, que llevan a estrategias y acciones para mejorar como enseñar, aprender y liderar en culturas que son inclusivas, cursos que son académicamente rigurosos y resultados que generan resultados justos para cada niño.
Este año, nuestro tema de West Linn-Wilsonville es “Liderando Juntos”, e invito a miembros de toda nuestra comunidad a comprometerse y participar en formas que fortalecen la misión de nuestro distrito y alumbrar la luz que emprenden nuestros sorprendentes estudiantes.
¡A un gran año!
