Representative Keith Sommer joined Dr. Wise for a tour of classrooms on Thursday, October 16. While visiting the High School, the Representative had an opportunity to visit with teachers and students in Accounting, Mathematics, and Art. In addition, the Representative caught part of a presentation to sophomores and juniors by the Bloomington Area Career Center, in which many Olympia students attend to take specialized classes that help them with their future careers.
Representative Sommer also visited the Middle School and participated in discussions involving government, chemistry, mathematics, and graphic design. During the tour of Olympia North Elementary, Representative Sommer visited with students working on their skill attainment with individualized technology, pumpkin experiments, and their knowledge of how government works in Springfield.
Fifth grade students plan to visit with Representative Sommer this spring at the Capitol. Also, high school students in Mike Haak’s government class will visit with the Representative in Springfield later this fall. We appreciate Representative Sommer’s commitment to the students, employees, and families of the Olympia School District.
