Fifth Grade Art: Archimusic—My Favorite Song Becomes a Building
Fifth Grade students walk the runway to the beat of their favorite song, showing off paintings representing that song as a building. Inspired by artist Federico Babina and led by Lower School art teacher Li-Ting Hung, students interpreted their favorite songs through architecture and painting.
First grade had their annual “Food and Games Celebration” today. Families brought their favorite games to teach to groups of kids. Parents read a holiday story, The Trees of the Dancing Goats by Patricia Polacco, and then everyone ate lunch together, sampling many of their favorite foods.
Forty Bush students participated in this year's Seattle Kids Marathon on November 26, 2016! The students ran or walked twenty-five miles over the two months before the marathon, and ran the last 1.2 miles all together from the Seattle Center!

Upper School Fall Backpacking Trip to Lake Ingalls
In the first part of the term, students learned fundamental wilderness skills in order to plan and execute a backpacking trip. Last weekend we hiked into the Lake Ingalls area, snow camping for two nights in Headlight Basin. We pushed hard Friday night through driving wind and snow, snowshoeing by headlamp to get to camp. On Saturday we woke to brilliant sunshine and gorgeous scenery, made blueberry pancakes, hiked and explored all day, played sardines in the snowy basin, and stuffed ourselves on grilled cheese and soup. This group was tough as nails, embracing new experiences with great enthusiasm.
