April 18, 2019: Poem in Your Pocket Day

Recently, the sounds of poetry could be heard drifting through the school as the students and teachers shared the poems they had stashed in their pockets. Every year, the Tilden community joins with the rest of the country to celebrate poetry with Poem in Your Pocket Day.   

February 14, 2019: Valentine’s Day

As is typical of Tilden parents, they went all out to host joyous and sugar-filled parties for each class! Thank you, parents, for your time, creativity, and sense of fun! With so many engaging activities and extra attention, the kids and staff loved every minute!

January 22-24, 2019: IslandWood

Tilden’s fifth grade class spent three days and two nights at IslandWood, an environmental sciences school in the woods on Bainbridge Island. The program provides exceptional learning experiences with the goal of inspiring lifelong environmental stewardship. Outdoors each day, the fifth-graders studied ecosystems while living in ways that are more sustainable. Now it’s up to the fifth grade students to continue living in more sustainable ways, encouraging their families and friends to do the same. 

February 4, 2019: Snow day!

Bitter cold? No prob, if snow is on the ground. Half of Tilden’s delightful kiddos made it to school on the first snow day of the school year, and boy, did we have fun! Snow angels appeared, snowmen were formed, and snowballs sailed through the frigid air, as students frolicked in the frozen landscape. We might have learned a little indoors, as well.

October 26, 2018: Halloween Carnival

Superheroes (aka parents and volunteers) were out in force, racing around the clock to transform Tilden’s campus into the ultimate superhero hideout. Their mission: to impose mandatory fun, excitement, humor, joy, and sugar upon all of Tilden’s students. Thank you, Superheroes, for your dedication (and time and effort and creativity) to such a worthy cause. You have given us all truly wonderful memories!

September 5, 2018: Welcome back, indeed!

The Welcome Back Picnic at Lincoln Park truly felt celebratory! With such a huge showing of friendly Tilden community faces—old and new—along with delicious potluck fare to share, the atmosphere was, well, typically Tilden: warm and inclusive, with a strong sense of community. Thank you, Tilden families!

 

June 15, 2018: The Fabulous 5s Graduate

Graduation, followed by a family and guest reception, followed by a class celebration on Alki—an eventful day, indeed. The 5s have officially launched, and we’ll miss them. Best wishes, 5s, and please visit!

June 6, 2018: 10, 9, 8, …1, LIFTOFF!

Launch day for the fifth-graders was a soaring success. Having built their own rockets and circuitry, they celebrated each successful launch into a cloudless Seattle sky. What a day! Congratulations, 5s!

June 6, 2018: Much Ado About Nothing

Oh, but it truly was something: a spectacular performance by the 5s! Congratulations, fifth-graders, on your hard work, your teamwork, and your accomplishment! What a treat for your Tilden community! We are all so very proud of you! (Shakespeare would have loved it, too.)

May 16, 2018: The Fourth Grade Play was a Hit!

Philadelphia was the place, and 1776 was the date. It was the meeting of the Second Continental Congress, and the Tilden fourth graders lived their parts. The play was the culminating event to celebrate the students’ understanding of how our independence was won.
