Athey Creek Middle School Welcomes Guest Students From South Korean Sister School
Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 1/16/2020 11:00:00 AM
The Athey Creek Middle School gym came to life with the sound of beautiful music, resounding speeches, entertaining dance performances, and the formation of many budding friendships on Thursday morning.
Athey Creek Middle School welcomed guest students from South Korea’s Eonyang Middle School during a school-wide assembly on Thursday, Jan. 16, marking the beginning of an exciting week for both Eonyang and Athey Creek students alike. Eonyang Middle School has been Athey Creek’s sister school for the past seven years, providing opportunities for students to visit their peers on the other side of the globe.
Athey Creek Principal Joel Sebastian welcomed guest students and administrators during the morning assembly, thanking them for traveling from so far while asking Athey Creek students to open their school to their new friends. The South Korean sister school relationship is one of just a few in the United States, and one of just two in Oregon, providing unique opportunities for ACMS students to learn about Korean culture first-hand from guest students. Guest students will spend the next several days living with ACMS host families, meanwhile, touring Oregon while learning about life in an American middle school.
Eonyang Middle School Vice Principal Choi also greeted ACMS students, before Eonyang students treated the ACMS community with Gangnam-style dancing and traditional Korean songs. ACMS orchestra and band students also provided musical performances before ACMS host students capped the fun-filled morning with a collaborative dance, joining their South Korean peers on stage.
Students from both sister schools take turns visiting one another in Oregon and South Korea, strengthening the bond the two communities share. Thank you to our Eonyang Middle School friends and to South Korea Honorary Consul Greg Caldwell for joining us for such an inspiring morning!
Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District!
Our incredible students, talented staff, supportive and dedicated community make this a tremendous place in which to learn and lead.
Our school district guides us with a compelling vision question, “How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people…for the world?”
This question challenges us to continually hone our practices and skills in creating exceptional learning environments for our students. The question also challenges us to implement practices that help our students grow as thoughtful citizens and compassionate humanitarians. Together, the vision question prompts us to continually engage our students’ minds and hearts. As the late poet, Maya Angelou declares, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
We pledge to do our best when working with the children entrusted in our care. This year holds great promise, great opportunities and great accomplishments for each of them.
