A note from the editor...

Here we are with the last Wellsprings Way issue of the 2018/19 academic year!

A big thank you to all of the students, teachers, staff, parents, board members, community members, and volunteers who help make Wellsprings the special place that it is.

Thanks to all for reading and keep the ideas coming! We'll see you in the Fall!

Senior Dinner
Held at McMenamins North Bank restaurant along the banks of the Willamette River this tradition is a special evening for all!

When I asked Gen, Dean of Students and a teacher at the school, what she had to say about graduation she thought for a moment and replied, "How infinitely proud of the students we are."

Graduating Class of 2019!

A BIG Congratulations to everyone in the Class of 2019!

In Chanci’s art class the students are encouraged to explore various art mediums. Below is a recent piece-in-progress by Caleb Rands, picturing Josh Homme from the band, Queens of the Stone Age.

Welcome to Jeopardy. The Category is...People.
The clue is: She is the only person at Wellsprings who has ever been invited to an in-person audition for Jeopardy.
The correct answer is: Who is Gen Schaack?!
Gen, you never cease to amaze! July 10th in Seattle is the date. Go get 'em, Gen!
