  • Davis Health Clinic

    Posted by Staci George on 11/5/2019

    Lots has happened at the Davis Health Clinic this year. We have expanded our hours from 2 half days last school year to 4 full days! Our medical care is currently being staffed by a handful of Community Health of Central Washington providers who are volunteering their days off to the clinic. It’s been amazing! Our full time ARNP starts mid-January, we are very excited to have her! We also have Behavioral Health here three half days a week and have had over 200 visits already. We ended last school year with just over 100 visits. Our collaboration with the school has improved tremendously and we continue to find ways to strengthen it. We have an established Community Advisory Board that offers tons of amazing support in addition to a wonderful outreach team! It’s been great to be part of a team that has come together to serve the students at AC Davis High School.

  • Winter Celebrations Around the World at Adams Elementary

    Posted by Mike Webster on 11/5/2019

    December 13: The Adams Elementary School winter program celebrates traditions from around the globe that take place in winter. Songs from Africa, Europe, Isreal, Mexico, and the United States will be performed in this K-2 program. Two elves, mic'd up and in costume, will inform the audience as they segue, with humor, between numbers. In addition to singing, students will be playing a variety of instruments including recorders, handbells, xylophones, and boom whackers. There will even be a live pinata--with a special twist! Unique choreography will employ everything from temper tantrums to Fortnight dances. Everyone is invited to join us for either of the two shows Friday, December 13th, at 9:30 am or 2:00 pm.

  • Boundaries

    Posted by Al Fischer on 11/2/2019

    I recently read a terrific book, Boundaries: Where you and I begin, by Anne Katherine.  The book has nothing to do with teaching, yet I increasingly think that it has everything to do with teaching.  Teachers have boundary violations waiting to happen all around them. Our physical boundary can be violated when a kid pokes us, trying to get our attention.  We can violate the emotional boundary of a child when we tell them that what they are feeling isn’t appropriate or reasonable. We all know about, and I hope have not seen, what it means to have a sexual boundary being violated.  It is worthwhile and powerful to take a boundary assessment of ourselves. Where are your boundaries strong and clear? Where are they tissue paper thin or porous? Lets think through some common boundary concerns in the educational context...
