Inspiring Video of West Park Elementary

The above video is touching and inspiring. The students at West Park Elementary are featured learning, interracting, experiencing, and enjoying school at West Park. I applaud the educators that are having such an impact on our youth!

(Plus, West Park 3rd graders get to attend Festival Dance Youthreach shows every year, thanks to Principal Marineau's dedication to arts education.)

Uniquely Palouse

Uniquely Palouse is a magazine for those who enjoy the Palouse lifestyle. And I love it! There's a great article about a WSU entrepreneur, a bed & breakfast, Bagott Motors, and the Moscow Arts Commission... not to mention the gorgeous full-color advertisements of local businesses. Pick one up for a lovely magazine to read with your morning coffee - then display it on your coffee table!
