Grade 4 teacher Will Miller is the grand prize winner of Ivar’s Teacher of the Year competition! The honor, which comes with $500 for classroom supplies, was announced at the final assembly of the year. Mr. Miller was nominated by student Rocco Daly, who also earned perks for his classmates: Ivar’s kids meals and an appearance (yesterday) by the Ivar’s Dancing Clam.
Mr. Miler was praised by Rocco for the guidance and encouragement he gives his students, while still creating fun programming, like teaching Shakespeare, go-kart building, and SciFri – an educational broadcast about science and technology. Mr. Miller allows students the freedom to have fun and use their imagination in class, encouraging them to tap into their interests and bring them into the classroom in a fun, effective manner.
For the past 13 years, Ivar’s and Kidd Valley Restaurants have invited Washington students to submit why their classroom leader should be recognized as “Teacher of the Year.” A teacher at Queen Anne Elementary was the winner of the Kidd Valley honor for 2016.

Principal Katie May will lead a conversation on social studies planning for 2016-17 during her last “Coffee Chat” of the year, 9:10-10 a.m. Thursday (June 23). Ms. May has written in Pup Press, most recently the June 16 edition, about the benefits of blending Highly Capable Cohort and General Education students for this curriculum. The school is awaiting District approval of a revised Highly Capable Services policy document that would end the requirement that HCC students be taught social studies separately.
If you are not able to attend this meeting in person, please feel free to send your questions to Principal May at email@example.com. Ms. May will put together an FAQ, and it will be posted online.
