Our rescheduled Tide Pool Day was a fantastic mix of observation and participation! Over 15 families joined us with students, teachers, and parents exploring and connecting with each other. Students discovered some of the things they have been studying in class and got to see specimens up close in real life!

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
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.
