June Bulletin 2018

Our 10th, 11th, and 12th grade English class Mystery Writers have completed their mystery short stories! Over 1000 pages of mystery and intrigue. Next year, our creative writers will continue their quest of solving mysteries and dabble in film/literature and fantasy/science fiction.

The final class culmination for our mystery writers at Sarah Winchester's Mystery House

We all decided that Sarah and her architect may have had a little MC Escher inspiration.

Here are students learned on their visit ~

The Winchester Mystery House has 160 rooms including 40 bedrooms, 40 staircases, 13 bathrooms, 6 kitchens, 10,000 window panes, 2,000 doors, 52 skylights, 47 fireplaces, three elevators, two basements and just one shower. Yes, you read that right. One shower.

If there are 47 fireplaces in the house, you'd think that there'd be 47 chimneys right? Wrong. There are only 17. Some of the fireplaces were wood-burning, gas, or coal.

Mrs. Winchester was OBSESSED with the number 13, and you can tell just by looking around her house.

There are 13 hooks in some closets, 13 blue and amber stones in a special window she designed, 13 ceiling panels in the Entrance Hallway, 13 windows in the 13th bathroom and even more.

One that stuck out in our minds was the room with no floor or ceiling that is tucked between her bedroom and the undeniably spooky Seance room.

Students admired the outside garden areas which are home to some curious things as well, including a $20,000 English Yew tree that towers over 12,000 boxwood hedges, 1,500 major plants, shrubs, trees -- and even greenery called Monkey Puzzle, which is native to Chile.
