Calling all alumni of Tilden School: ‘Past, present, future’ celebration in August

Tilden School is celebrating its “past, present, and future” next month and wants to get the invitation out ASAP. Here’s the invitation:

Alums from Tilden School are planning an event to celebrate the past, present, and future of Tilden. Whitney Tjerandsen (beloved director and “rock” for many years — she always said that she could teach a rock to read!) and 4 other beloved teachers/staff are retiring this year. And they are passing the baton to the new director, Sarah Shearer, who is busy getting ready for fall.

Tilden School Celebration
Sunday, August 29, 3-6 pm
Group photo and celebration presentation at 4:30
Hiawatha Park
[2700 California SW] — Family-friendly event
RSVP to omaravalerie@gmail.com

Tilden is an independent K-5 school just north of The Junction.

    What a great way to celebrate this little gem in West Seattle. So many students  have passed through those halls. Our family has the fondest memories of their elementary school education. It was a great start towards their education excellence. So thrilled the school will continue.
