West Seattle schools: Seahawk surprise at Arbor Heights

April 9, 2012 at 10:11 pm | In Arbor Heights, West Seattle news, West Seattle schools | 3 Comments

With the pro-football preseason is four-plus months away, there’s plenty of time for players to set their sights on a different playing field – local schools. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Josh Portis made a surprise appearance today at Arbor Heights Elementary School (whose students are the “Junior Seahawks”). His message: Stay in school. Not that dropping out is a big problem at the elementary level, but it’s never too soon to start making sure the message sinks in – encouraging better attendance has been a big districtwide campaign this school year. (Thanks to the Arbor Heights parent volunteer who shared the photo of the quarterback and Ms. Wilson, the first-grade teacher who led today’s assembly.)

  1. Nice, and I bet the kids were thrilled! I know the Seattle Storm has visited AH in the past too. Way to be out in the community Pros!
