Kids share their view of Vancouver
Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt spent Wednesday morning visiting the Loowit Class (first and second grades) at The Gardner School of Arts and Sciences.
A few weeks ago, the students visited Leavitt at City Hall as part of their field trip to learn about Vancouver. Today, they presented him with a hardbound book they made, “A Kids’ Guide to Vancouver, WA.”
It’s filled with comments and their original art, he said. “It’s so impressive.”
I believe it, because check out their models of (real and imaginary) local landmarks.
Here’s their take on the downtown library, with a bonus Penguin ice skating rink, which, by the way, would be awesome.
And City Hall (sorry, I don’t have the names of the little artists and architects. If any Gardner School teachers or parents read this, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with names and ages.)
And Fort Vancouver:
And, with an eye to the future, here’s “The World’s Best Apartment Complex”
They also had models of Pearson Field, a parking garage and the I-5 bridge.
