    STUDENT WRITERS SHINE IN PLAYWRITE PARTNERSHIP

    Mt. Scott Learning Center's partnership with PlayWrite, Inc. kicked off its 12th season this fall with a successful workshop culminating in a final performance December 13th at the Ellyn Bye Studio Theater at Portland Center Stage.

    The workshop teamed eight Mt. Scott students with PlayWrite coaches in a carefully structured two-week residency where students met both individually and in groups. The 2 ½ hour daily exercises utilized the tools, expertise and guidance of the PlayWrite coaches, while sparking the creativity and emotional depth of each student.

    STUDENTS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF STUDY ABROAD OPTION

    Mt. Scott Learning Center students continue to take advantage of exciting opportunities to travel and study abroad through the Carpe Mundi program.

    Meno Vongdara (right), a 2015 Mt. Scott graduate, will leave next month for a three-month semester program in Ecuador and Peru. Meno will be one of 10 students representing Carpe Mundi’s Ganesha Cohort (far right) and will combine cross-cultural exploration with Spanish language study, outdoor adventure and service learning – all while earning college credit through Portland State University.

    “Mt. Scott helped me turn things around and graduate and prepare for life after high school," says Meno. "It provided me with opportunities like this (Carpe Mundi) to continue growing and challenging myself – and succeeding.”
