Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 7/26/2021 1:00:00 PM
A large number of Bond Projects are taking place this summer thanks to the community's passage of the 2019 Capital Bond. Several schools are currently undergoing capital bond construction, with the majority of work expected to finish before the start of the 2021-22 school year. Some of that work includes:
Cedaroak Park Primary, Bolton Primary, Stafford Primary — installation of air conditioning;
Willamette Primary School — new entryway and installation of air conditioning;
Inza Wood Middle School — Renovation of front classroom spaces, relocation of office, creation of maker space, and a restroom/concessions building addition among other work;
Athey Creek Middle School (future third high school) — new secure entryway, renovation of existing office space, and conversion to classroom spaces including Career and Technical Education among other work;
West Linn High School — Addition of new parking and stadium renovations.

West Linn-Wilsonville students wrapped up summer learning on Friday, July 16, culminating weeks of hands-on and in-depth learning in multiple areas of study.
That learning was on display at Meridian Creek Middle School, where students from each of the district’s four middle schools engaged in project-based learning activities suiting each individual student’s interests.
Students selected groups at the start of Summer Learning, spending three weeks working together to create projects while building skills in reading, writing, and mathematics among others. Project areas included Art for the Good, Middle School Musical, Future City, Asteroids and Robots, Community and Identity, Playground Power, STEAM Education, and Biomimicry.
In Asteroids and Robots, students spent their time learning coding skills, programming drones and robots to accomplish tasks set as a class. Students demonstrated their newfound math and engineering skills by programming a drone to fly over school grounds, strategically documenting sidewalk chalk drawings created by art students.
In Future City, students learned about engineering and architectural planning, designing their own parks, schools, and even cities. And in Middle School Musical, students spent their school days writing an original script, casting students, and choreographing songs and dances. The class project culminated in a 20-minute production of their original play, “To Thine Own Path Be True,” which they performed for classmates on the last day of Summer Learning.
Students at the Primary and High School Level were hard at work as well during the past few weeks, engaging in summer learning of their own. Now students will enjoy summer vacation before returning to school in the fall. New students can register for the 2021-22 school year by visiting the Registration Section of the District Website.
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.
