Crescent, Clallam Bay Sixth Graders Share 3-day Port Townsend, Peninsula College Experience
On June 1,2 and 3, the Crescent Sixth graders went to the Port Townsend Marine Science Center with students from Clallam Bay. They went to learn about whales of the Salish Sea. First, they learned about sailing aboard the Adventuress, a 102 year old schooner. They learned how to raise the sails, steer the boat, what it’s like to live aboard a boat AND they also had mini lessons on issues facing our oceans and marine animals. Next, 6th graders attended classes at PTMSC. They learned about echolocation, the Salish Sea, the food chain, phytoplankton and transient and resident Orca populations. All of the students and adults slept in dorms at Fort Worden. The food was wonderful and they were able to explore the grounds at Fort Worden. On the way home, both Crescent and Clallam Bay schools visited Peninsula College to learn about what the college has to offer. It was an amazing trip and they left with many new friends.
What was their favorite part of the fieldtrip?

15 LOGGERS QUALIFY FOR STATES By Coach Yount
Crescent Loggers Track & Field Results: Tri-District State Qualifier held at Port Angeles HS, Thursday, May 21st.
Fifteen Crescent athletes went into the State Qualifying meet with hopes and aspirations of winning a place in the Washington State Championships of Track & Field and when all was said and done, all fifteen advanced to the Big Dance. And not only did they advance, but many advanced in multiple events. Leading the way in that regard was Senior Captain, Martin Waldrip who got it done in all four of his events: Triple Jump, 1600m PR, 3200m PR and anchored the 4X400 Relay. Joining Martin on the girls side in all four of their events was Ryan Lester and Ashara Dodson, Lester getting in done in both her hurdles specialties, the 100H in 17.50 and shattering her own school record in the 300H while racing to 50.64. Ryan added the triple jump to her resume and flew the anchor leg of the 4X100 Relay to land a spot there as she teamed with Frosh, Hannah Lee; Senior, Kayla Olsen(who also qualified in the 800m); and Sophomore, Kristin Frantz. Dodson stamped her State Ticket by storming through the high jump, javelin, discus and triple jump for an absolute stellar day. Super Frosh, Paul Frantz was the lone Logger champion on the day as he obliterated the field in the 800m in a conservative for him 2:03.43. Paul added State spots in the 1600m and the 4X400 Relay. The Big Red Head, Jordan Scott got it done to the tune of a PR 18.32 in the 110 hurdles and was joined by Zac Fletcher and injured Jacob Baillargeon In rounding out the 4X400 Relay team. The Big Two, Wyatt McNeece and Neil Peppard flew their implements to State qualifying marks in shot/discus and were joined by Senior, Cody Wolfer in his javelin specialty. Fellow javelin thrower McKenzie Brannan and Senior, Shannon Williams (shot/discus) rounded out the team. And to put the icing on the cake, both boys and girls teams finished in an outstanding 5th place out of 15 teams in the team competition. The State Championships will be held at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, beginning Thursday, May 28-30. CONGRATULATIONS TRACK & FIELD LOGGERS!
CRESCENT’S PAT POMEROY RECOGNIZED FOR EXCELLENCE
The Excellence in Mathematics Education award was presented to Pat Pomeroy by the Washington State Mathematics Council and the Olympic Education Service District on May 18th. Educators who were awarded this award were honored because they work tirelessly to improve math education in their schools and have had an exceptional impact on the lives of their students. Pat was recommended by Katy Middlestead, our very own Title I/LAP Coordinator and K-12 Math Specialist, who wrote the following in her nomination letter: “Pat has overcome a lot this year, and she has been willing to make changes to the way she teaches to accommodate the Common Core. In addition to that, she has encouraged and helped other teachers in our building do the same. She encourages all of her students to believe in themselves and their ability to be successful in Math by implementing number talks. She always listens to every student and makes sure they are validated for participating. She is a role model for other Elementary teachers. Because of her success and example, 4 other grades have implemented number talks to create fluency with their students.” CONGRATULATIONS MRS. POMEROY!
2015 Science Night By Wyatt McNeece
That’s right folks, on Tuesday, May 19th, Crescent hosted its very own Science Night; a time to show the world our intelligence level with boards, beakers, and colorful fluids. In total, there were more than 40 boards and many students who wanted to show off their work and effort of the past several weeks. Brendan Leo-Browne, Destiny Clark, Faith Helgeson, Mackenzie Brannon, and Alyssa Hutto had an interesting board on the genetics of plants and explained why three strawberry’s had morphed into one. Cari Belford, Cloey Marihugh, Ashara Dodson, and Holly Criss had a presentation on how a tube, a balloon, and some smartness can make an official stethoscope. Kim Edgley, Jakob Baillargeon, Sam Stark, and Athena Muck had a board dedicated to determining lung capacity. They used two liter bottle of water, a tube, and a bucket to tell you how much air you can hold in your lungs. One of the more interactive ones was held by Raine Westfall and Katy Strean. Their experiment messed with your senses. It included walking across a balance beam with nothing affecting your senses while being timed every time you walk across the beam, the next test was walking across with earplugs, the third test was walking across while being blindfolded, and lastly walking across while being blindfolded and having earplugs in. Interestingly they prove that you rely on your senses when you use balance or do other activities much more than you think because each time they took a sense away your time across the board was greatly increased. In the middle school, we had Acacia Bergstrom, Kassidy Neske, and Jasmine O’Neel with great advice on how to prepare yourself and your home for earthquakes along with what to do if you were ever trapped in the middle of one. In the elementary school grades we had Leslie Davies and Wyatt Lee with a project on plant growth and if a plant grew better with regular soil or a mixture of soil and chemicals. All in all, we had a great turn out of parents and students alike, and everyone seemed to be having a lot of fun with all of the interactive boards and interesting information. This year’s Science Night was a success and we look forward to the next. Thank you Mr. Mowe, Mr. Schermer, Mrs. Silva, and Mrs. Schroeder for challenging us to show Crescent parents and community members that we are geniuses.
2015 Prom - Jardin de L'amoure By Luke Leonard & Alyssa Hutto
On Friday May 8th, the yearbook class, Ryan Lester, Mrs. Davidson and Ms. Schroeder set up the Crescent Grange for the 2015 Prom. This year’s theme was Jardin de L’Amoure or Garden of Love. This was the yearbook class’ first time decorating for prom and we gave it our all trying to make sure that the seniors would be really excited. We built arches, decorated them with greenery and white roses and added white icicle lights to make it glow like a magic garden at night. After 7 hours building and then decorating the Grange, we felt it was ready for the seniors and headed home for some well deserved sleep.
On Saturday May 9th, Mrs. Davidson and Ms. Schroeder arrived at the Grange a little early and did some last minute decorations while DJ Jason set up his amazing light and sound show. The doors opened at 8:00 PM and the guys and gals started pouring in. All the seniors but one came to the Prom! Hannah Mitts said this was the best dance ever! Jade Blazek said she was so glad she came because she had such a great time. Everyone who came to Prom had a great time, they tore up the dance floor as they danced to the great music DJ Jason played. The students really liked that DJ Jason took requests and played a great variety of music! Just before 10 PM everyone who was at Prom was asked to vote for the Senior Prom King and Queen. Shortly after that, the seniors gathered together and had the senior picture taken. While the seniors had their picture taken, the votes were counted by Mrs. Davidson and Ms. Schroeder. The winners by a landslide were Jared Larson for Prom King and Kayla Olsen for Prom Queen. Last year’s Homecoming King and Queen, Quenton Wolfer and Hannah Mitts crowned Jared and Kayla and then DJ Jason played Eric Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud! Jared and Kayla were soon joined by everyone. No one left early and DJ Jason played the best song for the seniors, Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing! Everyone sang the song with all their hearts because it meant so much to them. Wyatt Frantz said, “That was the most perfect song to end prom!”.
The 2015 Garden of Love Prom was a huge success! Thank you Mrs. Davidson and Ms. Schroeder for helping the yearbook class put on this event. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Singhose for helping to chaperone the Prom while looking out for the Grange. Thank you DJ Jason, the music was the best ever. Thank you everyone that attended, you made the night so amazing and filled with great memories that will last forever!
