Middle School Awards of Excellence Presented at Last Assembly of the 2011/12 School Year

The last Thursday assembly of West Sound Academy's 2011-2012 school year was a time for recognition for outstanding achievement in many different arenas - both in and out of the classroom.

9th Graders Stian Josok and Rane Wilson presented their National History Day (NHD) documentary Ghandi's Revolution. Their film took first place at the Olympic Regional NHD competition in March and qualified to go to the State Contest. See Months of Research & Writing Culminate at 2012 Olympic Regional History Day

7th Graders Jackson Vogt and Espen Swanson presented their anti-aardvark propaganda film that was part of their work for Mr. Batchelder's History Class. See WSA Middle Schoolers Wage a Propaganda War Over ... Aardvarks?

West Sound Academy's first athletes to letter in a sport were honored. 10th-Grader Dalis Sierra recruited five other WSA girls to join her in playing lacrosse for North Kitsap High School, and all six girls were awarded big 'WSA' letter patches. See the Kitsap Sun article on this team: North Kitsap Lacrosse Team has International Flavor
