Ginkgo students visited the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle during Intersession. The staff provided a learning activity about immigration, with multiple stations and activities; students then toured the museum in small groups. They were impressed by the brand new building in Ballard, with its unique architecture communicating a sense of the ships for which Scandinavians are justly renowned. An area of special appeal and relaxation is the viewing space that features a large screen showing stunning views of the diverse and often dramatic natural environments of Nordic heritage, from Greenland through the varied isles and nations. Students chilled quietly on the cushions and floors. During the visit, docents commended WMS students for their good manners and behavior.—WMHS teacher Sharon Dunn
