This course for the 2014-15 school year is an exciting opportunity to learn about the Muckleshoot’s natural forest heritage and investigate a potential future career in natural resources. Over the year,we will explore the ecology, biology and natural history of the Pacific Northwest forests.   This will be done through many field trips– to managed parks, teaching and working forests– as well as classroom activities and learning.  From seed  to tree, and mountain to soil,  this class will look at forest life systems from the level of chemical processes taking place inside living cells to the level of ecosystem and biosphere.  Much of what we are studying will involve significant vocabulary, with a heavy emphasis on applying concepts, understanding and recognizing components in scientific research, and new knowledge that must be reviewed independently to achieve mastery.   The curriculum is being drawn from many sources.   Project Learning Tree and Pacific Educational Institute offer many activities we will use in class, but extra activities are included   so we can best meet the goals of the course, review state learning goals in Biology and scientific inquiry.

We will not work alone!  Many partners and professionals will be part of this class–from Hancock Forest Management, Green River Community College, Lincoln Tree Farm, National Parks, Muckleshoot tribe elders and educators as well as local park rangers and managers.  To represent the Muckleshoot Tribal School with Pride, professional presentation and workplace skills and demeanor will be part of our learning.

The Choices class is a credit retrieval program for students who want a second chance to earn credits from class and to graduate from high school. The program is designed so each student will have support and an environment which will allow them to work toward graduation. Many of our students have been away from school for extended periods of time. Therefore, we work on developing life skills and try to incorporate any interests or work experiences that they may have into their learning. Most of our students are very hands-on learners who need short term goals. We use small unit lessons in Language Arts, Math, History and Science. We take baby steps!! These steps provide skills that they need to have as well as the sense of accomplishment and pride.

Originally in September 2008, the vision for Choices was to provide support for students who needed to recover credits in their junior and senior years of high school. If a student failed or received an incomplete grade they could complete coursework in areas that were lacking and turn that grade into a passing grade for graduation credit. Our students work in groups, independently, or on computer programs.

There will be a certificated math teacher (room 3211) Monday-Thursday after school until 4:00 PM to provide extra, review, remedial, homework help, preparation for state testing or just to study math for FUN (and for no other reason).

Students – Come get the individualized help you need to pass your current math class, pass the next state test, increase your MAPs score, or just for the pure enjoyment of learning something new! Dan Williams is here to assist you. Find where you are strong in math already. Make sense of some math concepts that now confuse you, like today’s lesson! 🙂 Please take advantage of this opportunity to improve your math and problem solving skills! No appointment necessary (except to make sure parents are aware of your schedule). You can catch the 4:15 Activities bus if you need a ride home! See you soon!

The students in the Whulshootseed Language classes at MTS learn to read, write, speak, and spell in their native tongue. This is an exciting time to be working with language and culture and to see the students’ enthusiasm and understanding of the need for language revitalization. We have been working from the beginning with the Whulshootseed alphabet and “basic conversation phrases” such as; introductions, emotions, body parts, family members, etc… and progressing the difficulty levels from there. MTS and the administrative team are a strong support to the Language and Culture programs which contributes to the students’ success.
