West Gate’s Third Grade teacher, Kristin Bowman, uses ten minutes of mindful meditation to help students break into the day. She says that it’s “very effective in grounding the kids and making them present for the day ahead.”
The featured image shows Art Teacher, Amanda MacKenzie, preparing an inspiring bulletin message in West Gate’s main corridor. The Fifth Grade ELA team consisting of Sharon Helding, Ashlen Smith, and Lisa Hamilton organize this year’s social studies curriculum.
Amanda MacKenzie’s 5th and 7th grade art students completed a “Laundry Art” activity. The students were asked to use articles of clothing to create images.
Congratulations to our 8th grade students transitioning to high school! West Gate celebrated this occasion with a drive-thru ceremony.
