West Seattle back-to-school scene: Schmitz Park flag ceremony

September 3, 2014 at 2:15 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle schools | 2 Comments

If the district’s timetable for the new school at Genesee Hill holds, this morning was the second-to-last first-day-of-school flag ceremony at Schmitz Park Elementary.

The program now housed at SPES is scheduled to move into the new GH school in 2016; the district’s most-recent announced plan for the current SPES building is to use it as an early-learning center. Thanks to Sean O’Connor for these photos from this morning! (Watch for a few other “first day of school” stories here, later today and tonight.)

  1. No love for Lafayette back to school this year? Haven’t seen one mention. We did have a wonderful bbq celebration and back to school.

  2. Yes, we published the barbecue announcement when we got it. No one sent photos, though.

    Not that we rely only on contributed photos but they help make sure we can showcase as much as possible, and this week my photographer was out sick, so we wouldn’t have had this if not for a parent who kindly sent photos. (As did a second one whose panorama I realize I forgot to add!) – TR
