I hope everyone is enjoying their time off. I decided to do something a little ambitious this summer and head to Asia with Mr. Porter and Mr. Wavra. We spent our first couple days in Siem Reap, Cambodia where we visited my sister (who teaches there) and experienced the city. After a few days we decided to cross the border into Thailand. We are currently sitting on a beach on Koh Chang island, listening to the rain falling and the waves crashing on the beach. I hope all of you are finding ways to enjoy your time off, whether you are traveling the world or staying in West Linn.
This morning students participated in the Metric Math Olympic Games. Events included Left Handed Sponge Squeeze, Right Handed Marble Grab, Bigfoot, Cotton Ball Shot Put, Straw Javelin, and Paper Plate Discus.
Students had fun competing and measuring. Awards were given to students for outstanding performance as well as to the students whose estimation was closest to their actual result.
We took our annual trip to the Oregon Food Bank this week to help repackage food for families in need. We had a great time working together to put potatoes in bags for food box distribution. Thanks to all the students and parent volunteers for helping to make this a successful service project.
