Here we are in June and getting ready for our end of the year events! Tomorrow is our online Senior Portfolio Day and we couldn't be more excited to see the passions and projects of our seniors! (No school tomorrow except seniors)
June 4th was our Senior Prep Day and it looks like students are ready and thrilled that graduation is 11 days away! This year we will be celebrating in person at McMenamins Anderson School in Bothell with two ceremonies. This historic rollercoaster year has had many milestones and challenges but we did it together! Those successes and difficulties we shared made us stronger!
Check out a few of the candids from Senior Prep Day! ... See MoreSee Less
Last Friday we had beautiful weather for our parking lot prom event! Over sixty students and staff spent the evening playing games, getting reaquainted and just having a fabulous time! Our Spring Fling Carnival Thing was a hit! It's hard to believe the year is almost over! Check out a few photos from the night. Thanks to everyone who helped out and attended! ... See MoreSee Less
Our seniors have all kinds of plans for the future. From a gap year to working at a new job, to choosing colleges like UW, Bastyr, Cascadia, PLU and more, they are ready to move forward with hope and excitement! Today we celebrate senior, Elsi. In Nina Crampton's drawing class the assignment was to discover 10 new portrait artists- photographers, painters etc. and study what they do, how they do it, and discover what stands out? Using that inspiration from these artists, create a portrait to convey something about yourself. Elsi, your work is so intriguing and captivating! Congratulations on getting into Lewis and Clark, best of luck to you! ... See MoreSee Less
Dorothy has been a teacher at Chrysalis for 17 years. And before Chrysalis, she taught in the Montessori setting for twenty years. It is safe to say that Dorothy knows her way around a classroom!
Dorothy has been a Chrysalis parent, as well as an employee, and is an amazing spokesperson for all that Chrysalis stands for. Dorothy meets each student, on each day, with extreme kindness and consistency. Dorothy has clear expectations of her student, and is not only their teacher, but one of their greatest cheerleaders. You should be in staff meetings when Dorothy is sharing about the most recent wonderful things that her students have accomplished-she beams! She truly cares for each child that she meets and loves to share with the world the successes of her amazing students. Dorothy is a pleasure to work with, and truly, one of kind! ... See MoreSee Less
We love you, Dorothy!💜
Dorothy is the best! Both of my boys love her and it's easy to see why - she is kind, fun, understanding and always supportive 😍
There's no one like Dorothy! Heart of gold and care for everyone!
Love Dorothy so much.
Dorothy is magical, wonderful...a true gift!
Dorothy’s love for the kids is undeniable ♥️
My son TJ is 18 now and he STILL talks about his wonderful time at Chrysalis with Dorothy. She is a true gem and a highlight of his education. Thank you for providing my son with such wonderful school memories💜
We love Dorothy at our house!
Dorothy is truly one of a kind and an exceptionally remarkable teacher! I have had the pleasure of teaching beside her and looking at her as a mentor. My children have also had her as a teacher and grandmotherly figure in theirs live. Dorothy goes above and beyond expectations she truly embraces each of her students uniqueness and finds a way to connect and teach them ❤️
What a wonderful picture of six beautiful children and a very loving teacher. Happy School Days !! So glad to see--missed you last year. Charlotte Allison Lorenz's G-Grandma from California. 🤶.
Dorothy has had a huge positive impact on our whole family!!!!!
Dorothy is a true star!She has touched our family with her kindness and understanding. We miss her now that we are at the high school campus.
We love Dorothy! ❤️❤️❤️
I want to be Dorothy when I grow up!!!
It's official! The 2020-21 yearbook is off to the printer and will be ready for signing in June and at our last campfire event! A huge, huge thank you to all of the parents, staff and students who sent in loads of images from this crazy, unprecedented year. We didn't know whether this yearbook would have 40 pages or 140 pages. Who knew our inbox would be brimming full with images of online learning, family, events, vacations, birthdays, pets, sports and so much more?! The senior pages and parent tribute pages turned out spectacularly. Our goal was to create a visual memory and tribute to a special year, our resilient community, and share that life did go on... A special thank you to Tammy! Here's a sneak peek at our cover...shhhhh. ... See MoreSee Less
Looking forward to seeing this! Thanks for all the work on it.
So excited to see the yearbooks!
On Fridays (until the end of the year), students are in the lab at CHS collecting data and developing their scientific thinking skills. We are slowly and safely introducing students back on campus and they are already doing amazing things. Check out a few junior high Physical Science students learning about chemical reactions and making observations about the changes they see! Thanks for sharing John! ... See MoreSee Less

We hope to reschedule this event for another low-tide day in June...
