West Seattle SkyLink presentation (times vary) @ online
Apr 12 all-day

When the pandemic ends and the bridge reopens, West Seattle’s traffic problems will still be with us.

Increased growth and commerce mean continued congestion regardless of whether you drive or take a bus. Light rail was supposed to provide a fast, reliable public transit option – but it won’t be here for at least a decade.

SkyLink would offer the same fast, reliable transit as light rail –as soon as 2025! SkyLink would save $2 billion and cause far less disruption and displacement to build. And it could connect as many as 55,000 riders per day to Link stations in Seattle enabling quick, predictable trips to destinations like Bellevue, Redmond, UW, and SeaTac – often in less time than driving. That would help relieve congestion on our roadways!

We invite you to learn more about SkyLink and why it is better for West Seattle. Join
us for a virtual presentation and Q&A at one of the following times:

Please register to attend.

Monday, April 12 7-8 pm
Friday, April 16 noon-1 pm
Sunday, April 18 5-6 pm
Friday, April 23 noon-1 pm

Please pass this invitation along to friends and neighbors and check out our website at

South Seattle Cooperative Preschools’ Music Funfest @ online
Apr 24 @ 10:00 am
Spring Virtual Music FunFest presented by SSC Co-op Preschools @ online
Apr 24 @ 10:00 am

What: Spring Virtual Music Funfest sponsored by the SSC Co-Op Preschools
When: March 20, March 27, April 10, and April 24 at 10 am
Where: We’re bringing the music to your home! These concerts are 100% virtual.
Cost: FREE! Donations support scholarship funds for families in need.
How to get tickets and donate: Go to https://tinyurl.com/SSCMusicFest, select one of the event names, and then select the “Tickets” link.

The SSC Co-Op Preschools have been serving West Seattle and beyond for over 75 years. We’ve always been committed to making early childhood education accessible to anyone in our community. In the past, money for scholarships has been raised through in-person fundraising efforts (such as concerts and movie nights). Clearly, these aren’t possible due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 also means that more families in our community need help than ever before. We want to be able to provide West Seattle families with affordable early childhood education, community support, and parent education, regardless of their current financial situation.

As part of this year’s fundraising efforts, the Parent Advisory Committee has organized a series of virtual concerts featuring four amazing children’s musicians. We are committed to making these events accessible for everyone, so the concerts themselves are free and open to the community. Any donations made with your ticket “purchase” will go directly to supporting the musicians and the preschool scholarship fund.
