STS is proud to announce the addition of Summer Classes to our already robust Summer Programming lineup for this upcoming summer! STS Summer Classes are short snippets (approximately an hour or an hour and a half) designed to inspire children to continue learning throughout the summer months. Math Games are led by Mrs. McGraw, for children entering 2nd-4th Grades and Yoga sessions are lead by Mrs. Anderson, for children entering 4th-9th Grades. Chose one class (or all) at a variety of times and days throughout the summer, the more you attend, the more you will grow! Please see the full article for more detailed class information, including the link to register.
St. Thomas School students, families, and friends know all about the new Garden and its linked Field Guide, now the educational arts community does, too, thanks to Ms. Salia's article just published in SchoolArts Magazine. Congratulations to Ms. Salia on the article, and to all the students, faculty, staff, and volunteers that helped make the STS Garden a reality. Be sure to read 'Garden Magic' on pages 17-19 of the May-June issue (link in full article).

I had the opportunity to represent St. Thomas School at the by-invitation-only Microsoft in Education Global Forum, where Microsoft recognized and celebrated the achievements of the world's most innovative school leaders and educators who are leveraging technology to help students realize their potential. St. Thomas School is one of 33 World Tour Schools and as a school leader, my role was to coach newly accepted Mentor Schools (the class of 2014 Mentor Schools included local schools Forest Ridge and Sammamish High School), meet with media, and provide feedback on Microsoft education tools. STS has "bragging rights" as one of the few schools to be invited as a World Tour School, reaching this elite status based on its superior program, strong leadership, and outstanding facilities.
