World Water Week continues at Chief Sealth International High School – teacher Noah Zeichner shares that photo from an art project that is part of today’s student conference on plastic pollution, this year’s theme (“Don’t Throw the World Away”). No public events today, but what the students are learning will certainly reverberate in our community in the years ahead.
Meantime, some of what’s happening elsewhere in West Seattle today/tonight, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
HIGH POINT SUMMER RESOURCE FAIR: Early-release day at school is the occasion for this 2-4 pm event with info on options for what youth can do this summer. Details in our calendar listing. At Neighborhood House’s High Point Center. (6400 Sylvan Way)

HIGHLAND PARK ACTION COMMITTEE: Tonight’s agenda – 7 pm meeting after 6:30 pm potluck – shared by co-chair Carolyn Stauffer:
*Homestead Community Land Trust:* We’ve been getting inquiries about properties for sale around the neighborhood with “Homestead” signs, so we’ve invited a guest speaker from Homestead Community Land Trust to come tell us what they do (www.homesteadclt.org).
*Neighborhood Park and Street Fund:* overview the projects submitted for grants in our district
*Highland Park Playground:* A Seattle Parks representative will be present to update us on the schedule for the Opportunity Fund Grant awarded to the park to create better access from 10th Ave and Thistle Street.
*HPIC Courtyard*: come hear and see what’s going on…. and help us name the new space!
We’ll also have some folks speaking about the *Tree Ambassador Program*, and the *Green Home Tour* coming up in April.
The meeting is at Highland Park Improvement Club. (12th/Holden)
