November is Native American Heritage Month, and the Bush Library has over forty new books for the occasion. Picture books, fiction, young adult, graphic novels, and non-fiction titles that feature American Indian/First Nations authors, stories, histories, protagonists, and contemporary experiences are lining the shelves of the library. Lower School Librarian Dovi Patiño has enjoyed reading her favorite selections from this new collection to Lower School classes.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Laramie Project, which opened on Wednesday, November 6. This phenomenal group of actors and technical crew produced a beautiful, thought-provoking piece of theater. For photographs from this production, click here.
Thank You for the Faculty/Staff Appreciation Luncheon
"Danke schön" (thank you) to all of the families who made the German Oktoberfest-inspired Faculty/Staff Appreciation Luncheon such a success! The delicious food, festive atmosphere, and opportunity to share a meal with colleagues across campus were very much appreciated by all.
We are grateful to the Bush Board of Trustees and Administrative Group for their dedication and leadership. According to NAIS Principles of Good Practice, the Board is the guardian of the school’s mission. It is the Board’s responsibility to ensure that the mission is relevant and vital to the community it serves. The Board of Trustees meets at 4 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month in the Community Room. Meetings are open to the community. This fall, the Board will go on a retreat to the Bush Methow Campus. We look forward to sharing photos from the Methow later this month. (Trustees not pictured: Kevin Baker, Steve Banks ’84, Steven Caplow, Sergio Chin-Ley, Reed Cundiff, and Mike Galgon) To see a complete list of the 2019-2020 Board of Trustees, click here: http://bit.ly/35BD8hf
Eleventh Grade Students Present at Washington State Council for Social Studies Conference
Congratulations to Bush Eleventh Grade students Julia, Sara, Claudia, Filmon, Ryan, Skylar, and Lucian, who presented at the Washington State Council for Social Studies Conference on Saturday, October 12 at the Gates Foundation. With History Teacher Raleigh Werberger, they presented their innovative work from their history course entitled Race in Twentieth-Century America. Their workshop demonstrated how students were given the autonomy to create an advocacy and action group focused on race and inclusion. Through this important work, they were able to assist teachers in other schools to create their own spaces for change on their campuses. For more photographs from this event, click here.
