When Mayor McGinn announced the recipients of the city’s summer-learning grants from the Families and Education Levy, multiple West Seattle recipients were on the list, and hundreds of local students will benefit. For one, the YMCA (WSB sponsor) plans a 9th-grade-transition program at Chief Sealth International High School and two other Seattle high schools. For two, Sealth’s neighbor Denny International Middle School received a grant too – principal Jeff Clark (in the photo above, second from left, with the mayor and Seattle Public Schools/Seattle Parks reps) shares details:
I am thrilled to announce that Denny International Middle School has been awarded a City of Seattle Summer Learning grant to increase the number of our scholars participating in our Westside Scholars Summer School program. Next summer, we will be able to serve 220 students entering grades 6th through 8th. The summer learning grant award of $73,363 will be focused on incoming sixth graders and will be augmented by other City of Seattle Families and Education Innovation Middle School funds to provide an exciting and rigorous program with core academics and enrichment activities during the six week program.
And North Delridge-headquartered Southwest Youth and Family Services also received a grant for a Young Writers’ Workshop in its education center. The official announcement was made Wednesday in Northgate; see the city news release here.
