Our photographer caught a sunbreak early this morning, looking toward north Vashon Island from a bluffside in Upper Fauntleroy. Busy, busy morning – even if you don’t have a student in the family, you’ve likely encountered school buses, crossing guards, and other signs that thousands more students (and the teachers and school staff who work with them) are back in class. P.S. We’re gathering back-to-school photos – if you want to share one, firstname.lastname@example.org – thanks! We’ll start the gallery later today. Meantime, also of note: Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year observation, begins tonight. Now the highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
BACK TO SCHOOL: Parochial schools started classes Tuesday, Seattle Public Schools and most secular independent schools started today. But some are beginning with half-days and other staggered schedules, so you might encounter buses, walking/bike-riding students, and pickup/dropoff activities at times besides the normal morning start/afternoon finish.
ARBOR HEIGHTS LANDMARK NOMINATION: 3:30 pm today at the Municipal Tower downtown, the city Landmarks Board considers the landmark nomination for Arbor Heights Elementary, submitted as part of the process for the construction of a new school on the site where the old one sits now. Details and map in our calendar listing.
SOUTHWEST DISTRICT COUNCIL: 6:30 pm tonight, the council with representatives of community groups and organizations from around western West Seattle meets at Southwest Teen Life Center; public welcome. Neighborhood district coordinator Ed Pottharst shares agenda highlights: “City staff from SDOT will talk about urban forestry/street trees. Then the Genesee-Schmitz Neighborhood Council will discuss City Light surplus properties (City Light presented on that at our July meeting), and the Junction Neighborhood Organization (JuNO) would like to talk about its plans to form a land use review committee.” (2801 SW Thistle)
ROSH HASHANAH WITH KOL HANESHAMAH: 7 pm tonight, Kol HaNeshamah (WSB sponsor)’s Erev Rosh HaShanah event, followed by Honey Cake Oneg, is at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church. (California/Hanford)
ROSH HASHANAH WITH WEST SEATTLE TORAH LEARNING CENTER: 7:30 pm prayers followed by a meal, RSVP for location, contact info here.
(added 10:22 am) WATER TAXI TONIGHT: Just added this to the daily traffic/transit tracker but should also note here too – if you are going to the soccer game downtown tonight, the West Seattle Water Taxi is on an extended schedule, per a reminder just texted by the county.
