    Unity Day has become an integral part of West Linn High School. Students hosted the third annual Unity Day on Friday, May 24, increasing inclusivity while building school culture.

    Once again, the entire day was dedicated to student-taught classes on subjects that matter most to West Linn High School students. Students had the opportunity to sign up for four different sessions, selecting Unity-inspired classes that are most relevant or interesting to them.

    Classes covered a wide range of topics, including workshops titled “Sustainability 101,” “Be the Difference,” “Discrimination: thought you’d see the last of me,” “Islam and Islamophobia,” “Body Positivity and Eating Disorders,” “Mental Health and Sports: Balancing Your Life,” and “Nutrition 101” among others. In total, there were more than 50 different workshops taught by students. [READ MORE ABOUT UNITY DAY AT WEST LINN HIGH SCHOOL]

    Nathan Tidball, Neel Jain, Pooja Jain, Rishima Mukherjee, Marlee Feltham, and Jessica Yu attend the international ISEF Fair.

    Eight West Linn-Wilsonville student scientists traveled to Phoenix, Arizona last week to showcase months of hard work against some of the best and brightest young scientists from across the world. Hailing from West Linn and Wilsonville high schools, students did more than just qualify for the prestigious event, leaving their mark on Intel ISEF Science Fair and the larger scientific community.

    Nathan Tidball, a Wilsonville High School senior, was awarded second place in the category of Materials Science for his project "Acrylate Polymerization: Formation of UC Curable Antimicrobial Surfaces.” He won $1,500 and the honor of naming an asteroid for his accomplishments.

    Not to be outdone, WLHS senior Jessica Yu placed third in the category of Systems Software for her project titled “A deep learning based drowning detection method for dynamic swimming pool environments.” Jessica won a total of $2,500 for her impressive work.

    WLHS senior Pooja Jain and sophomore Neel Jain placed fourth in the category of Embedded Systems for their project titled “Skyhound: A low-cost, 3D printed autonomous WiFi tracking search drone to locate missing victims of natural disasters.” The pair won a $5,500 for their project as well as an additional $1,000 for West Linn High School.

    WLHS seniors Rishima Mukherjee and Marlee Feltham also represented the District for their groundbreaking project titled “A 5th Generation CAR-T Cell: MicroRNA Guided Radiogenetics for T-Cell Engineering.”

    “Walking around that exhibit hall gives me renewed faith that there is no obstacle that our students cannot overcome. They have a true passion for improving the human experience for all,” said ISEF Program Coordinator Danielle Grenier.

    Congratulations to all of our science fair participants for their important contributions to the science community and world!

  • 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. 

    This year, our West Linn-Wilsonville theme is “Leading for all.” We continue to focus our leadership moves, our instructional practices and our district resources to ensure each child, every child achieves success in our schools.

    To a great 2018-19 year!
    Kathy Ludwig, Superintendent
