Tilden is following the state-ordered emergency school closure order. We miss our students already, but teachers are working hard to ensure they can all continue learning (offline and online) during the closure.
And Jan, our wonderful Kindergarten aid, is one of the dedicated Tilden staff taking time during the state-ordered emergency school closure to clean and disinfect! ❤
The fifth grade class enjoyed sun and volunteering fun all day with Nature Consortium in the West Duwamish Greenbelt.
Full of enthusiasm and determined to make a difference, the kids removed invasive species, mulched, and planted, all while learning important lessons on what our environment needs to stay healthy. Way to go, 5s!
Seattle’s 5th Avenue Adventure Musical Theater performed at Tilden! While students experienced the wonder and joy of live musical theater, the performers brought to life books by authors and illustrators from the Pacific Northwest. On to the library!
Paul Schmid, portraying a member of Butler’s Rangers, treated the 4th grade students to a colonial loyalist’s perspective on the events surrounding the American Revolution. His enthusiastic audience learned there was more than one viewpoint about the cause of independence!
Learning is definitely cause for celebration, and the Tilden community did just that. Families enjoyed this annual event that recognizes students’ effort and achievement, beginning with time in the classrooms and halls to view students’ work, and ending with performances by each class.
With all the day-to-day hard work these kids do, it was good to pause and appreciate their effort.
