6:39 PM: Under way right now at the Seattle Lutheran High School gym on the north end of The Junction, fourteen local schools have representatives at the West Seattle Education Fair, ready to talk with you, serving grades pre-8th. There’s free parking in the SLHS lot right across the street from the gym (4100 SW Genesee), whose entry is marked with a big bunch of balloons. Here’s who’s here:
Community School of West Seattle
Explorer West Middle School (WSB sponsor)
Harbor School (WSB sponsor)
Holy Rosary School
Hope Lutheran School
Lake Washington Girls Middle School
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Seattle Girls’ School
SSCC Cooperative Preschools
Village Cooperative School
West Seattle Montessori School (WSB sponsor)
Westside School (WSB sponsor)
Also here, Roxbury Spine and Wellness Clinic (WSB sponsor), Freedom13.org, a child-safety-education organization, and us – we’re sponsoring the event, reporting live. Admission’s free and it’s a casual wandering-around setup – drop by any time before 8:30 pm.
7:29 PM UPDATE: If you’re bringing little ones – there’s a play area where they can get creative.
Many of the participating schools are here with their principals/head of schools.

One more hour remaining – it’s going fast, and the turnout’s been great.
8:19 PM UPDATE: With the World Series and Seahawks game on – plus bedtime for kids – things have slowed down and some of the participants are folding up, so we’d advise against trying to rush over at the last minute. Follow the links above to the schools’ websites; many still have open houses coming up this fall. Thanks to everyone who participated, and congratulations to SLHS for hosting an event bringing together others in the education community – below, SLHS’s Jeanne Flohr, who put the event together, with SLHS head of school Dave Meyer:
