Students in Stephanie Nash’s kindergarten class spent the last two weeks learning about the five senses: sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell. They explored how each sense works, how senses help them learn about the world, and how they keep them safe too!

To finish the unit, students collaborated with partners to create a poster about each sense and presented it to the class. One of the highlights of the unit was when students posed for a five senses photo-op and wrote about their favorite sense.

Students’ writing:

Mason Blake: My favorite sense is tasting because I like the taste of ice cream.

Bill Hernandez Vivaldo: I like hearing. I like echoes.

Emma Abken: Tasting because I like frosting.

Camren Williams: I like tasting. I like food.


We had a great day in Carmen Merring’s room! Two volunteers from the Sequim Kiwanis Club recently brought in two custom-built bulletin boards for her fourth-grade classroom. This solves a problem with too many holes in the wall.


The Veterans Day assembly will be Monday, Nov. 6. The school is in search of veterans to honor; call 360-582-3600 for more information.

Donkey Basketball is set for 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, in the high school gymnasium. Tickets in advance are $10 for adults, $8 for students in grades 7-12 and $5 for youths in kindergarten-grade 6. Tickets go up to $12, $10 and $6 at the door (youths younger than kindergarten age get in free). The event supports the SHS choir.

The Down Home Holiday Bazaar is Saturday, Nov. 25. The SHS band is collecting items to raffle for this fun event. If you have any items to donate such as candles, mugs, books, DVDs, CDs, crocheted or knitted items, jewelry or any items that might go well to make up a basket, the band would appreciate your support. For pick up or delivery drop-off, call or text Mary DeFilippo at 425-290-2255.
