We were moved. We were motivated. We were mesmerized by the nation's first national youth poet laureate, Amanda Gorman. CHS teachers used her breath-taking inaugural piece, "The Hill We Climb," to practice inquiry and creative expression with students. Jennifer's drama classes watched Amanda's performance through the lens of theatre, reflecting on her vocal quality, body language, and imagination. They discovered her use of alliteration and made connections to Hamilton and Shakespeare. Students described her performance as "Powerful, Expressive, Commanding, Colorful, and Rhythmic." Next they were invited to choose three of those adjectives to construct an alliterative poem of their own. What a wonderful opportunity for our students to witness, relate to, and be inspired by this history-making poet and role model! ... See MoreSee Less

Tonight we will be hosting a virtual Open House for prospective families of elementary students (K-6th grade). Our Open Houses are a great way to be introduced to the philosophies that we proscribe to as a school, and to learn how we take those philosophies and use them to create a caring, supportive, and individualized learning environment for each of our students.
It is not too late to RSVP for this event through our website (chrysalis-school.com) for those interested in learning more about Chrysalis School! ... See MoreSee Less
Seeing is believing! Creating a life-size human skeleton out of paper using origami skills is no small feat (feet?)! Over winter break, one of Alia's Anatomy and Physiology students built a life-sized skeleton out of paper to get hands-on knowledge of her own body structure. This cool, complex project revealed that she shared similarities with her "Bones" counterpart! The paper components have the Latin and English names of printed on them and are fully articulated. Students will also be using their models to show muscle attachments and joint movement. Thank you for sharing these pics Alia and Eleanor! Very impressive work! ... See MoreSee Less
So awesome. Thanks for making remote learning engaging!
We are always looking to provide ways for our students to engage with one another, and to feel a real sense of belonging to their Chrysalis community. With that in mind, we are starting a new, 'Big Buddy/Little Buddy' program this week! Some of our National Honor Society high school students have volunteered to be paired with students from our Elementary Campus for a once weekly meeting to talk about shared interests, draw, play, ask questions, and get to know one another. We are starting small, with the hope to expand this program going forward. Thank you to everyone who is participating-there is no doubt this will be a fun and fulfilling experience for all involved! ... See MoreSee Less

Funny story.... last night I asked “where’s the bag of candy?” And Henry answers “in my room!” I’m a little curious if he has any candy left for the gingerbread house 🤣
Thank you for doing this, girls are so excited!
Thank you for helping to keep this tradition alive!!!
Did more get made or eaten? 🙂
So many great memories of this tradition!
This is sooooo exciting!!!
Even though we aren't on campus right now, changes are still occuring all around us in Woodinville. Today, Tammy shared this photo of the railroad tracks being removed in front of the high school to make way for a paved trail! No, COVID, I guess you can't stop all progress! ... See MoreSee Less
I figured those tracks were never being used. I never seen a train go past when i was in high school

'Tis the season and we are celebrating our teachers and staff! This week a gift carrier full of local favorites was delivered by our event elves (thank you Zach, Tasha and Tammy) to the Chrysalis crew. Goodies included handmade cookies from www.lilysbakerybothell.com, holiday scented candles from Little Barn Candle Co., assorted teas from Seattle's The Perennial Tea Room, wonderful wine from Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, and the most beautiful Christmas cactuses from McDaniel's Do It Center in Snohomish! We shopped locally this year to support our community businesses.
Chrysalis is so fortunate to have teachers and staff members that are truly the best of the best! For that, we are so grateful and we appreciate all the hard work that you do! Thank you. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
