Friday Field Trips

For our Halloween party, students and staff brought fruits, chips, cupcakes and pies for everyone to enjoy. After we ate, we carved pumpkins and then had a costume contest for which Ishan, the winner, got a trophy.

Chuck’s Friday Trip Reflection

    In Feb 17th, we build our own rocket on morning and launched in Bellevue Downtown Park at after noon then we went back to school. I have a great time even I came late and miss the building time at morning. But I still have a good time in launching part. Thanks for Allie borrow me that rocket she build and let me use it to launch it.
    After lunch, all of us are building the last part of the rocket, the engine and ignition to put in the end of the rocket. Then we start to walk to the Bellevue Downtown Park. When we reached the park, we found a place to set up the launch pad. Because it was ran last night, so the park was wet and grass with mud are moist. After set up the launch pad, we use the little tube to put the rocket on launch pad, then we group up to a circle and the people who launching their rocket is holding the electronic launcher. Then he put the key in, after count down, he push the button, and the rocket launched. But the launch is not always successfully, sometimes the ignition part didn’t touch well on engine, then the launch will filed. But we always can fix it. After each person launch their rocket twice, we start to clean our mess and walk back to school to having our Friday Reflection.
   This Friday I learned how to build rocket and the importance of teamwork. I’m really like this field trips. It’s fun and taught us something. It’s pretty good and I like it. I wish we can have more trips like this.

Mox Boarding House 2/3/17

Today students were in for a big surprise! Not knowing where they were heading, the students were excited and impatient, asking “Where?” time and again. Arriving at Mox Boarding House, the students were pleasantly surprised to see a library full of board games.

Students got to play new and exciting board games they’d never played before. They were forced to engage with other students outside of their social groups. Seeing them interacting with each other and not only playing but, getting to know each other personally was an extra positive outcome.

Reflection, Aaron

Written by Aaron Field Trip 2/3/17

This is first field trip for me of this semester. We went to Mox, the board game house, and this was the third time that I went there. It was a very interesting field trip because some brand new game!
After the current events, we jumped in car and drove to Mox. It was always cool to see a place with so many board games. I was stunned because there were so many games to choose. Gabe chose a game called Splendor. I thought that was lame game because it had an old white box. But I was wrong; Splendor was one of the best board game that I ever played. Splendor is a game of chip-collecting and card development. Players are merchants of the Renaissance trying to buy gem mines, means of transportation, shops—all in order to acquire the most prestige points. If you’re wealthy enough, you might even receive a visit from a noble at some point, which of course will further increase your prestige. The thing that amazed me was – John, he was so good at this game even though it was the first he played it. He literally dominates the whole game. Vijay was pissed off at John because John stopped him from getting a really good card, and John won the game in the end.
We had lunch and spent another at the board game house before we went back to school. It was very fun field trip, I enjoyed it. It was good to spend time with friends and play board games together.

Seattle Art Museum 12/1/16

Today we visited the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), Students were excited to roam through the Global Art Collection. The students especially enjoyed two exhibits: the Native American and African Cultural exhibits. Following our visit to the museum, we had lunch near the Ferris Wheel then explored Pike Place Market, while savoring samples and coffee.
