  • Lowrie Builds Community Connections Through Powerful School Project

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 6/17/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Students discuss their projects with residents from Springridge in June.

    The school year might be over, but we're not done sharing great stories from the 2018-19 school year! Lowrie Primary's fourth-grade social studies project might have been the culmination of weeks of hard work, but it was just the beginning of several budding friendships. That's because a number of residents from Springridge at Charbonneau joined Lowrie fourth-graders earlier this June to view school projects that were long in the making. Students shared biographies they created, which featured the very same community members they had interviewed earlier in the school year.

    Lowrie fourth-graders received the chance to meet Springridge residents at their home earlier in the year, where students asked a series of questions about their lives, gathered information, and learned about their many lifetime highlights. Students then spent the past several weeks writing biographies, crafting opinion pieces about why the person they interviewed has led an important life and creating historical timelines. They also selected a person who grew up in the same era to research as well as a major historical event from the same time period. Students then combined all of their hard work into a laminated book, complete with pictures, which they shared with community members in June.

    It's the third time Lowrie fourth-graders have participated in the exciting project after Lowrie Teacher Adriana Aivazis came up with the idea. Springridge residents listened as students read their writing, asked questions, and enjoyed the stunning work students had created. Community members left with a copy of the impressive works, and with a few new friends as well.

Dr. Kathy Ludwig, Superintendent

  • Dr. Kathy LudwigGreetings West Linn-Wilsonville School Community -
    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. 

    Thank you, students
    As we move into the final days of the school year, I wish to thank our students for their commitment to learning this year. Your unwavering effort to learn as much as possible while improving your school community through kindness and inclusion has been a joy to see. Our school communities enjoy a strong culture of excellence thanks to your commitment to attendance, focus in the classroom, and a deep desire to improve as learners and as people. Our district website is full of stories and examples of student learning, and their outstanding performances.  

    Thank you, parents and volunteers
    Thank you, parents and volunteers, for your generosity of time and talent this year.  Thank you for your unwavering commitment to all of our students, providing the support and resources to allow them to thrive and flourish this school year. Each of our schools brimmed with adults on a daily basis, adding to the positive learning communities our students enjoy. Even on weekends, after school and into the evenings, our parents routinely step up to volunteer and sponsor activities in athletics, arts, academics, and more that keep our students engaged and passionate about their learning.

    Thank you, Teachers and Staff
    Thank you to our teachers, staff, and school leaders for creating the conditions every day for our students to thrive. I hope each of you takes with you the pride of watching our students grow in knowledge, skills, and independence; you played an important part in their learning and character development. As the work of teaching and supporting students becomes increasingly complex, you have met the challenge with determination, talent, passion, and compassion. On behalf of the School Board and myself, we are incredibly grateful.

    Congratulations to our Seniors, Class of 2019
    Congratulations to the nearly 750 seniors who will graduate from West Linn, Wilsonville, and Arts and Technology High Schools this year. The Class of 2019 includes award-winning scholars and scientists, artists and athletes, innovators and community servants, with hundreds of students ready to enroll in universities all across the nation and globe. Many students from the Class of 2019 will be heading directly into the global workforce, having gained industry certifications and valuable, real-world experience through internships, apprenticeships, concurrent enrollment courses, and Career and Technical Education classes.

    But perhaps their greatest accomplishment is the impact they’ve made on their schools and the greater community. From Unity Day at West Linn High School, to Doernbecher Days at Wilsonville High School and Community Rock Concerts by ATHS, our seniors have worked tirelessly to make the world a better place. No matter the path our seniors choose to take, they have already left their mark on this community. We know the best is still yet to come. Congratulations, Class of 2019!

    Thank you West Linn-Wilsonville for another year of remarkable memories. Have a safe and happy summer and we’ll see you in the fall.

    With joy and gratitude,
    Kathy Ludwig
