The other Seattle-SF matchup: Gatewood Elementary won!

October 18, 2012 at 11:06 pm | In Gatewood, West Seattle news, West Seattle schools | 7 Comments

Though the Seahawks didn’t quite pull it out tonight against the 49ers, in a parallel competition, their semi-surrogate – West Seattle’s own Gatewood Elementary – won! We first heard last weekend about P.E. teacher Alex Beaty‘s $1,000 Donors Choose funding request for a sound system making it into a promotional vote tied to tonight’s Thursday Night Football game, up against a San Francisco school – and tonight multiple Gatewood supporters messaged us to say Gatewood won; congratulations! (By the way, the other school gets 50 percent of its funding request, so it’s not winner-take-all.)

    Although I went to Lafayette in the ’60′s, my Mom went to Gatewood in the ’30′s.

  4. My daughter attends Gatewood and of course, I am happy. However, the other school broke my heart. They just wanted balls! I’m so pleased that they also get funding.
