WEST SEATTLE SCENE: Pathfinder K-8 students’ Delridge demonstration

(WSB photos)

Thanks to the parents who let us know about Pathfinder K-8 students’ walkout/demonstration today. Students left the Pigeon Point campus around 11:30 am and walked to the pedestrian/bicycle overpass at Delridge/Oregon for sign-waving.

The banner in the foreground was the work of someone else (we saw it there a few hours earlier) but gun violence is one of the two issues about which the Pathfinder students were demonstrating, along with reproductive rights:

This was one of many walkouts across the country today.

    Love to these kids. They deserve to go to school unafraid. Our family supports you today and every day <3

    You are in my heart. I would like to be able to bring a recall vote to these senators to let the people decide if they should still represent us, and not have to wait years until they are up for reelection.

    We go to pathfinder but didn’t know about the walkout. How do you get on the walkout list?

    As someone who attends this school and participated today, this event was only for middle schoolers. It was also completely voluntary for all the MS students, and there was no official sign up. It was purely the decision of the students this morning and a unofficially yesterday.

      And as the parent of an early-elementary aged student at Pathfinder, I’m very thankful for this. Talking about school violence requires something very different at age 7 than at 12, and I held my breath when I saw that sign on the bridge on the way to school hoping my kid who is a new reader wouldn’t see it – I know our school staff is sensitive to this with the young ones and I’ve been very nervous this week about what they might hear about from others. This has truly been a debilitating week to be a parent of a young kid.
