Congratulations!! Isaiah Pellerin (current freshman) and Elizabeth Hale (a freshman last year) are two winners of the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center’s Peaceful Poetry Youth Contest! Last spring during Mrs.Likkel’s poetry unit, kids were invited to write a poem about how to respond to conflict in a healthy way, maybe even offering peaceful solution ideas. Many of our students & other kids in the county submitted poems and the Resolution Center chose six winners from those entrants. We are so pleased that out of those six, two of the winners are from ZLO!! Isaiah, Elizabeth and their families are invited to a dinner and auction in November in which they will read their poems for the audience. Congratulations again to these two writers!

“They teach to a high standard not determined by the public school but by the parents and ultimately Our Heavenly Father.”

I’d like to expand on the comment posted a few weeks ago and tell you why I very much enjoy teaching at ZLO. Please connect to my blog by clicking here.
With the proliferation of cellphones and other handheld devices, we might begin to worry that our teens don’t or won’t read anymore. Our English teacher, Sue Likkel, has written her thoughts on that in this week’s ZLO blog post. Click here to read it!

“Grateful for a fine summer day and the wonderful friends my children have made at ZLO. The parents I’ve met are delightful folks who are all deeply invested in their children’s spiritual, educational and emotional well being.” – Kristin Uhrig
I’m trying to think of what to add to this. This pretty much sums up what we want to support here – parents deeply invested in their children’s lives. Us instructors – we’re on YOUR side, serving YOUR family, not an educational system invented by someone else, administered by people who have never met you.
