Graduate Presents Gift of Aloha to Her Classmates at 2018 Commencement

June 03, 2018
By Susan Trower

The class of 2018 in the staging room before graduation - Espen Swanson photoThe West Sound Academy community - faculty, friends and family of the Class of 2018 - came to the House of Awakened Culture in Suquamish on May 25 to celebrate the school's 17th annual commencement. The graduates represented a diverse group: international student graduates from China, Vietnam and France, and some domestic students who had lived in other states before settling in Kitsap: Pennsylvania, Texas, Hawaii. All of these students, representing such different cultures and backgrounds, were thrilled to be at this celebration and acknowledgement of their achievements.

Jenna-lin Tabisola giving leis to her classmates, assisted by WSA Head of School Barrie Hillman - Espen Swanson photoJenna-lin Tabisola, originally from Hawaii, began the evening's ceremonies with a presentation of gifts from her family to each of her fellow classmate: fabric leis, in West Sound Academy's school colors. Tabisola's mother, Jennifer Komatsu, made the leis from "yards and yards of satin"; the entire project took several months to complete. Tabisola explained the significance of the gift.

Jenna-lin Tabisola giving a lei to her classmate, Yanli Zhang - Espen Swanson photo    "The Hawaiian word "Aloha" means love, mercy, compassion, hello and goodbye. It is a word that has to do with deep feelings and emotions. Giving a lei as a gift expresses the same meaning as "Aloha". A lei traditionally shows honor and love and is an extra special gift, as it carries not only a blessing and tangible beauty, but also represents the giving of time. We give these to the graduates to show our feelings of love and appreciation and in recognition for their hard work. Like a ring, a lei has no beginning or end, symbolizing your part of the West Sound experience. [West Sound] is a place you can always call home and a place that will always welcome you back."

Barrie Hillman, West Sound Academy's Head of School, gave assistance as Tabisola gave each of the graduates a lei. Then Randy Komatsu, the graduate's father, came up to the dais carrying his younger daughter Rielly so that the little girl could give a matching lei to her sister.

Listen to Your Art’s Friday Sound on April 13th

April 05, 2018
By Quinn Lanning, '18 and Alena Pulhug, '19

Listen to Your Art's Friday Sound on April 13thThree years ago, a group of West Sound Academy students organized the first Listen to Your Art music and arts festival as a benefit for The Trevor Project, the nation’s leading suicide prevention hotline for LGBTQ youth. Since 2014, the three festivals hosted have raised over $20,000 for The Trevor Project. With engagement from local artists, musicians, and public speakers, Listen to Your Art has invited the people of Kitsap to join the conversation surrounding suicide awareness and lift the taboo associated with suicide discussion. With many of our core members graduating and changing the world through their own journeys, the current Listen to Your Art team has made the decision to hold smaller-scale music events, called Friday Sound, at West Sound Academy (WSA).

Friday Sound was an old WSA tradition that was brought back in 2017 as a fundraising effort for Listen to Your Art’s main festival. This event will continue on in future years as a completely student-run direct fundraiser for The Trevor Project. On April 13th, Listen to Your Art will be hosting Friday Sound with bands from WSA and other areas in Kitsap, including The Red Tails, Quinn Lanning, 24-Hour Hug, Lauren Wallach and Zoe Moreton. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the music starts at 6:30 pm. All ages are welcome to come and listen.

Ticket prices are as follows: $5 for students $7 for adults $15 for families of 3 or more.

Thank you for following Listen to Your Art and supporting its goal of alleviating the stigma behind the conversation of suicide and supporting those who struggle with suicidal ideation.

2017 Graduates Told "Set Your Sights on a Vision and Make It Happen"

May 24, 2017
By Susan Trower

The class of 2017 in the staging room before graduation - Mark Gsellman photoWest Sound Academy faculty joined with friends and family of the Class of 2017 at the House of Awakened Culture in Suquamish on May 19 for the school's 16th annual commencement. Head of School Barrie Hillman reminded everyone that the purpose of the evening is to acknowledge the personal achievement of each of the graduates. They had been told to "Set your sights on a vision and make it happen."  She added, "Each one in this class created their own vision of their future and have worked hard to achieve the first of many big steps to bringing it to fruition."

Jim Kolb walking out at the end of his sixteenth West Sound Academy commencement - Mark Gsellman photoHillman added that it's important for graduates to recognize those who have guided them on their journey: the faculty and staff of West Sound. Hillman gave special note to one faculty member, Jim Kolb, Director of Finance and Operations, who is retiring at the end of the school year after serving in a variety of positions, teaching and administrative, since the school's founding in 1998.

Hillman encouraged those in the audience to write Kolb a note about the greatest lesson they've learned from him, then she showed off her own set of many, many notes of appreciation (taped together, accordion-style) for his years of service to West Sound's students, families, and faculty.

WSA band members strike their self-confidence poses during the audience participation part of Bridget Young's speech - Mark Gsellman photoMarisa Lanning, Chair of WSA's Board of Trustees, then introduced Bridget Young, the commencement speaker. Young, a Poulsbo realtor and Kitsap native, has also performed as a stand-up comedian at charity events. She kept the audience laughing while she told of her experiences, at times painful, in high school and college. She challenged the graduates to believe in themselves enough to keep trying until they succeed. She concluded her speech with a moment of audience participation: everyone in the room was asked to stand, put their hands on their hips, and strike a self-affirming pose.

WSA Music Ensemble performing 'Forever Young' with seniors Spencer Drewry, Leanne Gimber, Ryley Mercado, and Ben Silvernale - Mark Gsellman photoThat bit of practice in self-confidence came just in time, since the next part of the program was the "The Last Word".  Hillman introduced each of the graduates as they came to give their senior speeches - a West Sound tradition.  

The WSA Music Ensemble, directed by Paul Burback, performed "Forever Young" by Alphaville, assisted by four members of the senior class giving their last performance as West Sound musicians. Hillman and Lanning then came back to the podium for the highlight of the evening:  the presentation of diplomas.    

Hillman presented the graduates to the community, then led them in the moving of the tassel on their mortarboards from the right to the left.  These newest WSA alumni left the building to the tune of "Tongue Tied" by Group Love, followed by the faculty and guests. Out on the lawn facing the Sound the graduates lined up for the traditional celebration:  the tossing of the caps.  

Congratulations, Class of 2017!

Salamunovich Gives Class of 2016 Some Life Lessons - "What I Wish I Knew Then, What I Know Now"

May 30, 2016
By Susan Trower

WSA's Class of 2016 - Mark Gsellman photoStephen Salamunovich, CSA, a casting director and musician, joined friends and family of West Sound Academy's Class of 2016 at the House of Awakened Culture in Suquamish on May 27 for the school's 15th annual commencement.  Head of School Barrie Hillman welcomed all in attendance, and after an introduction from Lawrence Kerr, Chair of WSA's Board of Trustees, Salamunovich took the podium to address the graduates and guests.

Stephen Salamunovich and WSA faculty - Espen Swanson photoSalamunovich looked back to his own high school graduation forty years ago and the way his life had been "all planned out" and then had taken a series of very different turns, leading him to establish his casting firm in Seattle rather than New York or Los Angeles.  He then gave his list of thirty-one things he's learned that he thinks are valuable - advice on everything from careers, family, political participation, the importance of critical thinking, and personal happiness.  Salamunovich ended with a wish that the graduates become "truly connected to each other, to our planet, [and] to the animals living on it" saying once that happens "we can solve every single problem we have today!  Every one!"  The full text of his speech is here:  

What I Wish I Knew Then, What I Know Now ... (Or THINK I KNOW!") - Stephen Salamunovich

Seniors giving their last WSA music performance - Mark Gsellman photoBarrie Hillman then introduced each of the graduates as they came to give their senior speeches - "The Last Word".  Many members of the senior class came off the dais so that they could give their last music performance as WSA students - "The Weight" by The Band.  

Hillman and Kerr then came back to the podium for the highlight of the evening:  the presentation of diplomas.    

Hillman presented the graduates to the community, then led them in the moving of the tassel on their mortarboards from the right to the left.  The newly-minted WSA alumni left the building to the tune of "Take On Me" by A-Ha, followed by the faculty and guests. Out on the lawn facing the Sound the graduates lined up for the traditional celebration:  the tossing of the caps.

Art, Poetry, WSA Music Energize & Inspire Over 300 students at Kitsap Youth Rally for Human Rights

March 27, 2016
By Susan Trower

Cornelia Thane '16, Audrey Jordan '18, Angie Mead '16, and Liam Near '16 performing at the Youth Rally - Espen Swanson photoOlympic College was the meeting place on Friday, March 25 for the 22nd annual Kitsap Youth Rally for Human Rights.  Sponsored by Kitsap Safe Schools Network, Kitsap County Council for Human Rights , Olympic College (OC) and Kitsap Peninsula schools, the event is an opportunity for junior and senior high students to gather and inform one another on a variety of issues of human rights.  Plus...it's a chance to celebrate and have a lot of fun!

Area school districts rotate the annual responsibility of being the 'host school' - in charge of planning the theme, the Rally logo for the t-shirts, and the opening and closing ceremonies in the OC gym at the Bremer Student Center.  This year was West Sound Academy's turn to host, and the QSA @ WSA club took charge. 

QSA @ WSA and Listen to Your Art organizers Ben Taylor '16, Aidan Moore '16, and Megan Hall '16 serving as MC's at the Welcoming Ceremonies at the Youth Rally - Espen Swanson photoAs students arrived at OC for the Rally, teachers and club advisors handed out t-shirts to all.  This year's Rally theme - Listen to Your Art - was an extension of last summer's Listen to Your Art festival, and Ben Taylor, '16 designed the logo that was happily worn by students and adults at the Rally.

In the time leading up to the opening ceremonies, students had plenty to do - create art for the WSA Art Wall, view the exhibit of paintings from WSA's Jan Term class, and visit information tables from a number of non-profits that serve youth in the area.   Ben Taylor, Aidan Moore, and Megan Hall staffed the Listen to Your Art 2 booth, encouraging everyone to come to the music festival in Port Gamble on August 6

These same three WSA seniors shared MC duties for the Welcoming Ceremonies, and the WSA Music Ensemble class, Paul Burback directing, amazed the crowd with their performance.  Everyone knew they were part of something special when the stands in the OC gym emptied out as students rushed to the floor to start dancing to the music! 

WSA Music Ensemble in the OC gym at the Youth Rally - Espen Swanson photoRally participants then left the gym and attended their choice of two breakout sessions, planned and presented by student clubs.  The Central Kitsap High Drama Department staged two performances of The Laramie Project.  Audience members were moved by this play about the reaction of Laramie town residents to the murder of University of Wyoming gay student Matthew Shepard.

And then it was time to go back to the Bremer Center for the sack lunches provided by Rally organizers.  WSA seniors Joey Schmitt and Liam Near served as the MCs for the open mic time, helping to boost the courage of students to get up and read their poems or sing their songs.

2016 Kitsap Youth Rally for Human Rights - Listen to Your ArtThe closing ceremonies were a time for poetry, thank-you's to volunteers and Olympic College, and more music from WSA's Music Ensemble class.  Students left the gym, newly energized and inspired to live up to the day's theme.

Listen to...Pay attention to your own unique character, and to the humanity and fundamental rights of others.

Your Art...Use creative means to communicate what's important to you.

Full STEAM Ahead at WSA Technology Access Center Grand Opening

October 07, 2015
By Susan Trower

West Sound Academy's Technology Access Center (TAC) received a proper grand opening on October 6, 2015, complete with ribbon-cutting and tours.

Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson, with help from some WSA students, cut a ribbon with a pair of sharp giant scissors, allowing the assembled group of students, parents, and community members to come take a look at the "TAC Room" inside of Ryan Hall.

The new facility has WSA's students and teachers eager to proceed "full STEAM ahead" with the school's STEAM curriculum initiative, combining the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) with Art and Design.

Students enrolled in 6th Grade Introduction to Technology, 7th Grade Computer Language and Logic, and 8th-12th Grade Robotics elective classes were on hand to show off all of the new gear.  

The TAC has 16 PC work stations (plus a teacher work station) equipped with 3D design software that allows students to work with the Cubify 3D printer and scanner.

WSA Science and Technology teacher David Miller had his Robotics and Introduction to Technology students show visitors what they've been working on during the first month of school.  Teams from the Robotics class demonstrated the capabilities of the LEGO EV3 robots to navigate obstacle courses, follow along walls, and use the gyro-sensor to be self-balancing.  The 3D printer was running, printing out a design created using Blender, the 3D program used by the 6th graders. 

Seventh graders were stationed at the PCs, showing off their coding skill.  The Computer Language and Logic class taught by WSA Director of Technology Lionel Pummell focuses on Alice, but some in the class have jumped ahead to learning Java.

James Kolb, West Sound Academy's Director of Finance and Operations, was part of the team of school administrators and community members that helped make the 'TAC Room' a reality.  Kolb is happy to see students benefiting from the TAC, and he's looking forward to the future potential for the school's new resource, and not just for WSA students.

The school is in the application process to be a testing center for the Educational Testing Service's TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language).  A TOEFL center in Poulsbo would be a tremendous service to any international students on the Kitsap or Olympic Peninsulas seeking admission to American colleges, since the test is required for all non-English speakers. 

West Sound Academy is also hoping to partner with Kitsap Regional Library and Poulsbo Parks and Recreation to make the TAC available after school for use for classes offered by those organizations.  "This has long been a dream at WSA, so we’re very excited about the Technology Access Center," says Kolb.  "It’s an important step in our STEAM Initiative and gives us another way to welcome the wider community to our campus.
