The Sanislo PTA is hoping for an encore this year, and the big auction/dinner is less than two weeks away! Here’s the invitation:

Thanks to the community support of Sanislo Elementary’s auction last year, we kicked our $5,000 goal to the curb and raised $15,000!

This windfall provided a mindfulness program, increased teacher stipends, created a ‘book fair bucks’ program, and is affording scholarships to kids in need so they can participate in after-school enrichment! YOU, yes YOU, helped make this happen! Let’s do it again!

Our annual auction is just around the corner. We hope you can join us once again in supporting educational equity.

– All Around the World Auction

– Saturday, June 2nd from 6 pm-10 pm

– Alki Masonic Center, 4736 40th Ave SW

– Silent Auction

– Dinner and TWO Drink Tickets Included!

– A special performance by Seattle Kokon Taiko Japanese Drummers, a DJ, Dancing, and more!

You can reserve your tickets online, or, if you can’t make it but would like to donate, you can do that through the link below as well.

Donations to our auction make a significant impact in the education of our kids. With more than 70% of our families living in poverty, our school community simply cannot raise these essential funds alone. We hope to see you there!

CONGRATULATIONS! Alki Masonic Lodge honors local high-school students http://westseattleblog.com/2018/05/congratulations-alki-masonic-lodge-honors-local-high-school-students/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/05/congratulations-alki-masonic-lodge-honors-local-high-school-students/#comments Mon, 21 May 2018 03:36:24 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=917301 Alki Masonic Lodge #152 honored 16 public-high-school scholars from around West Seattle this past week. It was the lodge’s 40th annual School Awards Night. Thanks to the parents who shared the news and photos!

The faculty of Chief Sealth International and West Seattle High Schools nominated four junior boys and four junior girls to receive recognition and a gift for outstanding achievement. Chief Sealth student nominees were Thu La, Asata Golash, Olivia Palmer, Isabella Ramsell, Asher Didier, Nollen Paltrep, Kai Bretl, and Grayson Hoffman.

West Seattle student nominees were Reuben Gut, Jackson Espeut, Marlee Bennett, Emma Foulk, Ariana Guerra, Grace Sarver, Jake Jonson, Colin Roman.

One boy and one girl from each high school was also selected by the Masons to be awarded an additional recognition and gift. The winners were Olivia Palmer and Asher Didier from Chief Sealth and Marlee Bennett and Jake Jonson from West Seattle.

Last year’s junior winners from each high school were invited to return to this year’s award ceremony. Those students were Tony Tran and Chandra Burnham from Chief Sealth, and Noe Leon and Rachel Hay from West Seattle. Tony Tran was presented the Alki Lodge Community Scholarship Award.

Also from the event, here is a photo of five Gatewood Elementary alumni, including Worshipful Brother Martin Monk, who led the night’s award ceremony.

From left are Reuben Gut, Jackson Espeut, Martin Monk, Marlee Bennett, Asher Didier. Mr. Monk was one of the first students to be recognized by the Alki Lodge 40 years ago.

In response to our followup question, he explained that, “The Masons of West Seattle are assisted by the principals and counselors of Sealth International High School and West Seattle High School in selecting 8 outstanding students of each Junior class. All of the students are presented with a small monetary token of appreciation, with a larger sum being presented to the Top Boy and Top Girl of each school. In addition, the 4 Top Juniors of 2017 were invited to speak about their aspirations, and one of these students was awarded a Community Service Scholarship. Alki Lodge is very pleased to continue this tradition of support for the public education of our local students.”

He is also the anchor leg of the MENS 4X100 RELAY who came in 4th and will advance to the District Meet. We are very proud of what he’s accomplished and look forward to seeing him succeed on his journey back to the STATE TRACK MEET next weekend. Good luck!!!!!

FOLLOWUP: Where South Seattle College’s Pastry and Baking Arts program stands http://westseattleblog.com/2018/05/followup-where-south-seattle-colleges-pastry-and-baking-arts-program-stands/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/05/followup-where-south-seattle-colleges-pastry-and-baking-arts-program-stands/#comments Tue, 15 May 2018 05:18:33 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=916732 (WSB photo, April 10th)

A little over a month after students, faculty, and community members pleaded with the interim president of South Seattle College< (WSB sponsor) not to kill the Pastry and Baking Arts program, Peter Lortz has made a decision. The college’s communications director Ty Swenson says Lortz “is not forwarding a recommendation of program closure until more is learned from conversations with industry and further discussion with faculty.” Those conversations, he explains, emerged from “connect(ing) with those who expressed a willingness to support the program … a plan emerged for Seattle Colleges to meet with baking industry representatives to discuss how the district (this includes South Seattle College, Seattle Central College and North Seattle College) can best meet industry needs and student demand. Those meetings will be held in the near future.” In the meantime, though, Swenson adds, “South will not run Pastry & Baking Arts classes during Summer Quarter 2018 and is not currently accepting new students into the program for Fall Quarter 2018.”

Closure was recommended by the college’s vice president of instruction in the face of a college budget crunch, but before forwarding that recommendation to the district chancellor, Lortz convened a “listening session” that filled the school’s board room with supporters including prominent bakers/restaurateurs who said the program is an invaluable training ground for businesses like theirs.

PLAN A MURAL! Friends of Roxhill invites kids to upcoming workshops. P.S. Playground builders needed too! http://westseattleblog.com/2018/05/plan-a-mural-friends-of-roxhill-invites-kids-to-upcoming-workshops-p-s-playground-builders-needed-too/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/05/plan-a-mural-friends-of-roxhill-invites-kids-to-upcoming-workshops-p-s-playground-builders-needed-too/#respond Sun, 13 May 2018 22:04:21 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=916624 As Roxhill Elementary prepares to move to EC Hughes, it’s time to ramp up the community mural project at the new site. From Jenny Rose Ryan of Friends of Roxhill Elementary, a special invitation for kids (and read through to the P.S. for adults):

Friends of Roxhill Elementary (FoRE) is pleased to announce the selection of Henry Luke as the artist to lead our community mural project. To kick off the project and help develop our community’s vision, Henry invites youth ages 7 to 13 to a series of workshops in the upstairs meeting room at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library from 4 to 5 p.m. on three upcoming Friday afternoons: May 18, May 25 and June 1. All kids are welcome — not just those from Roxhill.

Our goal is to create a long-lasting piece of art that truly represents the history, culture, and aspirations of the people in the neighborhood who will see it every day. We are excited to work together with Henry to create a mural that reflects our hopes, dreams, and visions for the future while making connections with each other.

The mural will be located at the concrete retaining wall at the corner of 32nd Avenue SW and SW Holden Street, along the street side of Roxhill’s new home at the historic E.C. Hughes Elementary. If you are an adult interested in participating in the mural design or volunteering to help paint the mural, please contact us at friendsofroxhill@gmail.com. It will be painted this summer, after installation of our new playground.

P.S. Friends of Roxhill will also be hosting a community build day for our new playground at our new home at the renovated and restored E.C. Hughes, where Roxhill is moving in the fall. Volunteers will be supervised by our selected playground firm, PlayCreation, on June 2 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Details are coming very soon — if interested now, you can sign up here. We have morning and afternoon shifts.

Both the mural and the playground have been made possible by a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund grant.

West Seattle Boys 4th, Girls 10th among 16 Seattle Metro League Schools

It was a great showing for West Seattle HS athletes at the Seattle Metro League Championships at Southwest Athletic Complex, May 9th and 11th. The boys’ team compiled 51 points to tie defending champs O’Dea for 4th; the girls earned 34 points for 10th. Photos courtesy of Erik Bell.

The boys’ team was led by:
-Senior Cass Elliott defending his 300 hurdles title, winning in 37.76 seconds. He also placed 3rd in the 200m dash in 22.81 to score 16 points total.

(Elliott holds the state No. 1 mark this season in the 300m hurdles)

-Junior Rylee Farrison came up 3rd in the boys 400m in 51.28 and 4th in the 200m in 23.21 and to grab 11 points. Elliott and Farrison capped off the meet teaming with Seniors Jackson Delaney and Alec Maroon to place 3rd (worth 6 points) in a thrilling 4x400m relay in 3 minutes 27.6 seconds, dangerously close to the school record of 3:27.41 seconds from 2016 (Elliott and Farrison were on that team as well).

(Rylee Farrison)

-Senior Joe Kirk-Woodbury went out with a fantastic senior Metro performance, achieving personal bests for 2nd place in the discus throw (149 feet, 7 inches) and 4th in the shot put in (47 feet, 1.5 inches) to score 13 points. With two weeks left in the season, the discus school record of 150 feet, 6 inches (Jay Morgan in 2003) could be in jeopardy.

(Senior Joe-Kirk Woodbury was Metro Runner-Up in the discus throw Friday)

-The boys 4 x 100m relay team of seniors Abdifatah Jeylani and Lucas Bower and sophomores Tom Nguyen and Kahlel Kelley placed 5th in the 4×100 meter relay (44.63) to score 4 points. Jeylani also placed 8th in the 100m dash for an additional point.

Girls’ team highlights included:
-Junior Chloe Cunliffe defended her pole vault title by going 13 feet even. She also placed 6th in the long jump in 16 feet, 5.25 inches to score 13 points altogether.

(Cunliffe has the top mark in Washington this season)

-Senior Symmone Davis had a breakout meet which saw her advance to districts in 4 events (top 8 in Metro advance to that meet, next Wednesday/Friday at SWAC). She placed 2nd in the 100m hurdles (16.19), and 7th in the 300 hurdles finals in 50.53. seconds – though the big breakthrough came in the prelims for that race, in which she earned the 2nd overall time with a 47.73, an oh-so-close .03 seconds off Grace Sarver’s record from 2017. Davis’ efforts added 10 points for those events.

(Davis advanced to district in 2 individual events and helped 2 relays advance)

-She also helped 2 relays advance – the 4x200m relay of Davis, sophomore Madison Kipley, senior Sierrah Bettin, and sophomore Katherine Long placed 5th in a season-best 1:48.54 (4 points); the 4x 100m of Davis, C. Cunliffe, Bettin, and sophomore Marissa Rackner placed 4th (5 points) in 51.36 seconds.

(Sophomore Madison Kipley was a key member of 2 relays)

-Sophomore Sophia Cunliffe placed 7th in long jump (2 points) with a leap of 16 feet, 5 inches.
-The 4x400m relay of Kipley, Bettin, freshman Evelyn Hootman, and sophomore Melody Potratz placed 9th in 4 minutes, 15.78 seconds, and sophomore Malia Proctor threw 77 feet, 4 inches, also for 9th- thus earning spots as 1st alternates for the district meet next week.

The Nathan Hale Boys won the meet with 86 point (by ½ point over Bishop Blanchet) and the Holy Names Academy girls won with 83 points (by 2 over Seattle Prep). Full results can be found here.

First report is from Louisa Boren STEM K-8 – thanks to Joe Laubach:

The first-ever Louisa Boren STEM K-8 Bike Train was a great success! May 9, 2018 is bike to school day and STEM students, parents, staff, and even neighbors pedaled their way to school. The turnout was better than planners expected. Over 20 students participated, in addition to many parents and two teachers. Also joining the ride was Rachel Osias, Youth Programs Manager for Cascade Bicycle Club.

The bike train route included several blocks along the 26th Ave SW Greenway and a segment of the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail. Pedaling has its rewards – in addition to some treats along the way, each participating student was awarded a card redeemable for a free dessert at Menchie’s. The event was planned by STEM parents Joe and Marlo Laubach with help and support from the PTA and other parents. A huge thanks to everyone who participated in this fun and healthy event.

Meantime, we also had previewed Alki Elementary‘s Bike to School Day plan and included a photo in today’s morning traffic/transit report. Here’s one of their bike trains headed in from Alki Avenue:

The Alki events were coordinated by Chris Nutter. We spotted West Seattle Bike ConnectionsDon Brubeck along for the ride, too.

Roll your way to school with family and friends as Genesee Hill celebrates national Bike to School Day tomorrow Wednesday, May 9!

Just a few logistical reminders to help make this event as successful as possible:

· The front parking lot will be closed to all vehicles. The students will be storing their bikes here.
· Handicap spaces will be designated on Dakota near the intersection of 50th Ave SW
· Staff – reminder to use the lower parking lot on all days.

Come join in the festivities and a huge thank you to Mr. Cudney and all the volunteers for helping to coordinate a return of this tradition!

(“B” marks the school entrance.) Though some rain is expected overnight, the forecast for tomorrow morning is currently just “cloudy.”
