Broadway has been dark for over a year… But the lights are bright at Alki Elementary!

We’d like to extend the invitation to our surrounding West Seattle schools and community to get on the guest list at Alkimusical.square.site for a fun family night joining our Zoom viewing parties to watch our pre-recorded shows! You won’t want to miss 29 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Alki performers bringing you this totally new musical from Beat by Beat Press, written during quarantine about kids in quarantine! In this crazy year, we all need a little Super Happy Awesome News!

In Alki PTA Musical tradition, we will be having a Flower & Bake Sale – ONLINE NOW through Sunday, April 18th at midnight – where all proceeds benefit Alki PTA and our community partners: Admiral Theatre, Jones Soda, Cupcake Royale, Alm Hill Gardens, Treat Cookies, Franz Bakery and more! Pre-order beautiful spring flower bouquets for your home, popcorn buckets for your viewing parties, tasty treats, and cupcakes to celebrate the night! And don’t forget your PBJGBCSWC Sandwich Kit! (Trust us, after watching Chef make this tasty treat during the production, every kid will want to make their own!) Pick up your goods near Alki Elementary April 22nd and 23rd 3:30 – 5:30 PM.

West Seattle SkyLink presentation (times vary) @ online
Apr 23 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
