We honor you: Snoqualmie Elementary students give touching thanks to veterans | Slideshow
Nov 14 2012, 1:38 PM
As a veteran who is still serving her country, Lena Morrill was honored to attend Veteran’s Day assemblies at Snoqualmie Elementary School over the past couple of years.
This year, however, was a little different.
Morrill, a 1991 Mount Si graduate, received an e-mail invite to the Snoqualmie Elementary ceremony weeks in advance. Students wanted her photo, and to know who she was and what she does.
Morrill was happy to oblige, and dutifully showed up in her dress blues last Friday, Nov. 9, as the pupils unveiled their big project.
Boys and girls in Mrs. Cuddihy’s fifth grade class at Snoqualmie Elementary spent the last month organizing the Veteran’s Day assembly.
Frosh campus offerings, revealed: STEM is required, PE is optional at learning center
Nov 14 2012, 1:40 PM
A new approach to learning at the freshman level was unveiled recently, in a series of community presentations by Snoqualmie Valley School District staff.
The presentations, last Tuesday and Thursday with about 180 parents and at an October 18 work session, focused on the curriculum offerings at the district’s new Freshman Learning Center (FLC), scheduled to open for the 2013-14 school year.
Those curriculum offerings, said Mount Si High School Principal John Belcher, are focused on preparing students for their post-high-school careers. They will feature a pairing of science and language arts classes, so the teachers in these subjects will have the same students in their classes, Belcher said, they will add a new requirement called STEM, and they will make PE, formerly a required freshman course, an elective.
Retired with honor: When the colors fade, Valley's Boy Scouts give worn flags a respectful send off | Slideshow
Nov 14 2012, 1:42 PM
It’s unsettling to see flames consume the flag of the United States of America.
Boy Scout Cooper Brown certainly felt that way as he used scissors to ready a flag for the waiting fire. But the important lesson on this cold November night is that everything has a final end, including a well-treasured flag.
The important thing is to give these banners a respectful send-off.
“It’s a hard thing to do,” said Scoutmaster Robert Odekirk. “It’s difficult for the boys, and it should be.”
