• Dr. Kathy Ludwig Greetings 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. 

    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

  • West Linn High School Hosts String of Successful "Wonderland" Shows

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 1/16/2018 12:30:00 PM

     West Linn High School students perform a scene from "Wonderland."

    The West Linn High School Theatre Arts Department finished up its performances of “Wonderland” over the weekend — an adaption of “Alice in Wonderland.” Written, produced, and performed by the Theatre for Youths and West Linn High School Tech II class, “Wonderland” explored themes of self-determination, empathy, depression, and anxiety, as well as the lost art of simple play in order to negotiate the world around us.

    West Linn High School students also shared the performance with primary school students from Sunset and Cedaroak primaries, inspiring the next wave of theater students along the way.

  • WLWV Band and Choir Students Impress at OMEA State Conference

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 1/12/2018 10:50:00 AM

    The Athey Creek Middle School Band rehearses ahead of its big performance at the OMEA Annual Conference on Jan. 12.

    Friday, Jan. 12 marks a momentous occasion for Oregon middle school band and choir students. It marks the start of the Oregon Music Education Association Annual Conference, which brings together Oregon’s best up-and-coming musicians.

    The OMEA Conference is one of the biggest events of the year for middle school musicians, making it a lot like the Super Bowl of Oregon State band. That’s what makes Athey Creek Middle School’s band so impressive, as the group of talented students was selected to perform at the annual conference. It’s an honor only bestowed upon the best of the best, following the submission of taped performances by ACMS Music Teacher Laura Arthur.

    What’s even better is that Athey Creek Middle School will share the honor of performing with the West Linn High School Symphonic Band, which features alumni from many of West Linn-Wilsonvile’s middle schools.

    “These students have been working so hard to improve and I could not be more proud of their efforts,” Arthur said of her students.

    Additionally, Athey Creek’s Logan Hines, Sarah Talber, and Zach Villagomez were selected as members of the Middle School All-State Band. They will represent the school in the prestigious ensemble, alongside many students from Rosemont Ridge, Inza Wood, and Meridian Creek middle schools as well.

    Wood choir and band students selected to the All-State team include Alex Hagler (Fisher), Courtney Lawrence, Dalton Mermis, Lily Saunders, Mallory Twitchell, Henry Deitrick, Alexis Gessler, Evelyne Knight, Isabella Scalise, Elijah Givens, Camryn Lau, and Hunter Hoshaw. Rosemont Ridge also boasts Daniel Page, Spencer Sullivan, Jacob Rice, Alex Campbell, Thomas Pierce, Tony Potekey, Madison Haswell, and Ben Scott.

    WLWV students aren’t done, either, as Athey Creek’s Koharu Sakiyama will be honored for her participation in the first Composition Contest for student composers. Koharu will receive an award for her string quartet entitled “Little Bird,” which took first place in the middle school division.

    Congratulations West Linn-Wilsonville middle school musicians!

  • District Grows Relationship With Rotary Clubs During First Annual Luncheon

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 1/10/2018 3:30:00 PM

    A Meridian Creek Middle School student answers Rotary Club questions during the Jan. 10 joint luncheon.

    Meridian Creek Middle School and the West Linn-Wilsonville School District played host to a special occasion on Wednesday, Jan. 10. The new middle school hosted the first ever joint Rotary Meeting for West Linn and Wilsonville Rotary Clubs, marking the first of many occasions for the two organizations.

    Approximately 25 members from each Rotary joined West Linn-Wilsonville School Board Members and staff for the first annual luncheon. The group listened to a presentation from WLWV Superintendent Kathy Ludwig, enjoyed a tour of the new school, and took advantage of the opportunity to get to know their nearby community members.

    After beautiful performances from the Meridian Creek Middle School advanced choir and orchestra, Ludwig thanked both groups for constant work they do in their communities. She explained that while West Linn and Wilsonville are their own cities, they are united by a school district that is one large learning community.

    “Rotary Clubs are truly pillars of the community, and it’s your genuine belief in every person in our community that I’m most thankful for," she said. "We know, because our schools are growing, that people are choosing to move to these two cities for the communities and the schools. We’re proud of that fact and excited to work together into the future.”

    Rotarians then engaged in discussion about community collaboration, providing potential ways in which schools and the community can spill into one another. Facilitated by district administrators, Rotarians gained insight on the WLWV school system while helping with important feedback of their own. They suggested potential for internships at local businesses, and vocational training conducted in multitudes of venues among other ideas. [READ THE FULL STORY]
