Thanks to Trileigh Tucker for the three photos – above and below – of young pileated woodpeckers and their dad “in a West Seattle tree.” Speaking of nature/wildlife, that’s where we begin today’s list of highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

EXPLORE THE BEACH AT LOW TIDE: The lowest tide of the summer is coming up in a few days – and beach naturalists will be out at Constellation and Lincoln Parks starting today. With today’s low tide at a good-for-exploring -1.8 feet right as we publish this, they’re out until 1 pm.

FAIRMOUNT PARK ELEMENTARY INFO SESSION: Another info session for families considering attending or planning to attend Fairmount Park Elementary when it reopens this summer – 6 pm at Alki Elementary. (3010 59th SW)

RETIREMENT PARTY FOR MS. ROLLINS AND MS. BELFOR: Two longtime teachers at Lafayette Elementary are retiring from that school – Ms. Rollins and Ms. Belfor – and since they’ve worked with thousands of students and families over the years, the school community wants to make sure everyone gets the word – 6:30 to 9 pm at Hiawatha Community Center; more info here. (2700 California SW)

WSHS SPRING CONCERT: 7 pm tonight in the West Seattle High School theater: “Join the West Seattle High School String Orchestra, Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble for our Spring Concert on June 11th. We will feature the music of Mozart, Haydn, Telemann, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, Paul Dukas and Sam Hazo.” (3000 California SW)

34TH DISTRICT DEMOCRATS: Three hot topics are part of the 34th DDs’ agenda at 7 pm, The Hall at Fauntleroy. As updated by 34th DDs president Marcee Stone-Vekich:

With speakers: Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant, Burien City Councilmember Lauren Berkowitz, and Sage Wilson of Working Washington.

8:00 Program – Newest King County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove.

Upthegrove represents the southern area of the 34th District Democrats in Burien and will give us an update on the current issues he’s working on.

8:05 Speaker from Washington Coalition for Gun Responsibility.

The 34th District Democrats will consider endorsement of I-594. Cheryl Stumbo, survivor of the Jewish Federation shooting here in Seattle, will be present to speak on I-594.

8:15 Late Breaking News. Seattle School Board members Marty McLaren and Sue Peters hope to join us and inform us of the changes regarding the math curriculum.

We will also consider a resolution on Social Security Vision 2025.

While only 34th DD members can participate in votes, the meeting is otherwise open to the public. (9131 California SW)
