FUNDRAISING WREATH (ETC.) SALES: Pathfinder K-8 PTSA and students will be selling their handmade wreaths again today by KeyBank in The Junction, 10 am-2 pm today:
This is our last week at the West Seattle Farmers Market! Need a last-minute gift to bring to a holiday party? Still haven’t decorated your front door? We’re holding our 27th annual wreath fundraiser to benefit outdoor education at Pathfinder K-8 School. This year’s selection of wreaths and other holiday swag is truly some of our best, including some super modern designs! Come see us at The Junction (next to Key Bank).
Everything is 100% unique and made from foraged materials from our yards and tree lots (thank you, Trees by the Sea on Alki!). This week we want to especially thank the community for all your support during this important fundraiser. It really helps us make Pathfinder K-8 a special place where outdoor education is valued and can be experienced by all of our students.
