English Language Learners in the Shaw Middle School summer program worked with volunteers from Gonzaga University to build a traditional Marshallese outrigger sailboat. Students learned math, science, art, music, navigation, language and many other skills through the process. The group plans to launch the boat in late August. Thanks to the following individuals for their work on this project: Scott Franz--Master Boat Builder (all the long, late nights he put into this were purely volunteer and we wouldn't have been able to do any of this without his hard work and wisdom) Kailey Rice--Photography/Documentary Teacher Nancy Loomis--Art Teacher Anny Case--GU Professor who orchestrated this project Marcy Ray--ELD Teacher Chris Iglesias--GU Student Helper Carolina Montufar--GU Student Helper Gale Snyder--GU Community Volunteer Plus the students and others from Shaw and SPS who helped make this project happen.
