We want to thank Diana Aaby from Enumclaw School District for passing along the following update and accompanying photos from this year's 'Get on the Bus' school tour that gives anyone in the community a chance to see firsthand some of work that staff and students are doing.
On November 13th, the wheels of the yellow school bus were certainly going round and round, but the passengers were different! Instead of students, the bus contained parents and community members wanting to learn more about the Enumclaw School District. The tour began at the Enumclaw School District Office where Superintendent Mike Nelson gave an overview of the district’s mission, vision and goals. After this presentation 20 members of our community loaded the yellow school bus and embarked for Enumclaw High School! Principal Jill Burnes shared information before taking the group on a tour of several Career and Technical Education classes. The bus tour continued on to Enumclaw Middle School where Principal Steve Rabb greeted the group and shared a PowerPoint presentation before taking the group to the new Project Lead the Way class. The last stop on the tour was Sunrise Elementary School. Principal Chris Beals also shared a PowerPoint presentation with the group prior to a tour of the three pods at his school. At the last stop in the building, Mrs. Henderson's students gave the visitors a wonderful demonstration on the use of the new technology in their classrooms.
The tour concluded at the district office with a luncheon prepared by the Central Kitchen and a time of question and answer. This is the second annual tour of the district that has been planned as a part of the National Focus on Education week.
If you missed the tour, there are several ways to keep up with the school district:
