The seventh grade performed an original version of the beloved story of Dorothy and her adventure through the magical land of Oz. With lots of singing and dancing and a few characters you might not know about, this fun-filled show brought creative energy and imagination to L-Dub. Congratulations to our seventh grade class on a job well done!

Happy Pi Day! L-Dub celebrated Pi Day with a day full of pi-themed activities including creating a pi chain, calculating pi, a pi-in-motion activity that involved building cars to launch down a ramp, and a pi recitation contest where the winners from each grade got to pie their teachers in the face!

In 7th grade Science, students dissected pig hearts as part of an exercise unit focused on how the muscular, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems work together! One section was joined by Physician Assistant Danny Satow from UW Valley Medical Center. She helped to point out structures in the heart and shared her expertise. Students noticed all the different types of heart structures we’ve been studying in class, felt the difference between the two sides’ ventricular walls, and worked to map the pathway of the blood through the chambers, valves, and vessels.

While 6th and 7th grades had conferences last week, 8th grade gave back to their community through days of service field trips. Students explored the Northwest African American Museum, volunteered with Seward Park Audubon Center clearing blackberry bushes from a field, spent time caulking, painting, and cleaning tiny homes at the Hope Factory, and visited Wing Luke Museum.

This week in 8th-grade science, students dissected cow eyes as part of a unit about light. Students identified the different parts of the eye and learned how they work together to help us see. Students should be proud of pushing themselves outside of their comfort zones.

This week, 6th grade science students dissected owl pellets as part of their populations and ecosystems unit. Students collected data on the types of bones they found in their pellets and next week they will analyze the data to try to determine what type of owl produced their pellet.

This week, the 8th grade Social Studies classes concluded the annual mock trial project. Students filled the roles of jurors, witnesses, and attorneys in multiple fictional cases. The attorneys did an excellent job arguing their cases, and the witnesses from both sides found sympathetic ears for their testimony.

With just three weeks away, we are excited to announce that the Cantlin Family has provided a powerful and visionary match for the first $15,000 donated on ! They do so knowing that fundraising helps keep our tuition accessible, provides additional classroom materials and opportunities, and keeps the school diverse and open to a broad variety of students. In addition, while tuition is not tax-deductible, your gifts to the school can be fully deducted.

Won’t you join the Cantlins and other families in making meaningful donations to the Fuerza Fund on ? Together we make L-Dub magic!
