West Seattle schools: Denny/Sealth Somali Family Night

From Denny International Middle School principal Jeff Clark:

Last night, we held a successful Somali Family Night here at Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School. The event went well with over 65 parents in attendance. Workshops were held on topics including school involvement and supporting your child academically.

We are always so impressed with the results when we reach out to our community — parents shared new ideas that we will use to make our connection with them even stronger.

Principal Kinsey and I would like to extend a special thank you to the following people for their help in making this event a success:

Christine Mattfeld, Leticia Clausen, Mohamed Mohamud, Abdirahman Ahmed, Burhan Farah, Mohamed Roble, Farhiya Omer, Martha Lemberg, Jol Raymond, Vanessa Garcia, Jeff Smith, and many others.

    What a great thing to have! Parents who are new to this country need an orientation to school and how it works, how to help their kids succeed, and what they can do to be involved.

Sorry, comment time is over.
