Learn about new 24-credit high-school requirement @ Chief Sealth International High School
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm

We’d like to invite the West Seattle Community to our Nov. 13th, PTSA General Meeting for a presentation on the state requirement for 24 credits for graduation. Presentation by Heidi Bennett, Wa. State Region 6, Legislative Representative.

NEW 24 CREDIT GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS & DECIPHERING HIGH SCHOOL – A guide for middle and high school parents

With the change to WA State 24-credit graduation requirements approaching, I’ve developed a presentation geared toward middle and high school parents to explain:

v New WA State 24-credit graduation requirements

v State and Federal testing High School requirements

v Deciphering acronyms – PPR, HSBP, AP, IB, CHIS, CTE, STEM, etc. – do you know what these are?

v Why and how to earn post-secondary credit (college or work credentials) in high school

For Shoreline and Seattle, the 24-credit graduation requirement starts with the class of 2021 (rising 10th graders) and beyond, as both districts have a 2-year waiver. Neither district has finalized plans for offering more credits beyond their current 6-period day/24 credit earning opportunities! YIKES

Come and learn more about this new requirement

Clue
Student Directed by Isabella Hale

Dates:
January 16, 17, 18 at 7:30 pm

Tickets:
$10 at the door – no reservation required!

Synopsis:
On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up. Based on the popular board game and adapted from the cult classic film, Clue is the comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.

Community Input: Lowman Beach Park Seawall Project @ The Kenney
Feb 28 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

At The Kenney (WSB sponsor):

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to provide input on the preliminary design for the Lowman Beach Park seawall project. Lowman Beach Park is located just north of Lincoln Park at 7017 Beach Dr. SW.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall is failing and needs to be removed. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over/sliding towards the water. It is Seattle Parks and Recreation’s goal to remove the remaining seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s.

In May 2017, together with Environmental Science Associates (ESA) design consultant, we presented design options. We hired ESA as a design consultant, as a follow-up to the feasibility study to continue the design process that began with the feasibility study. The design will take into consideration both the habitat benefits of the seawall removal and the coastal engineering ramifications of that seawall removal. Given the design constraints of the project, the existing tennis court will be removed. A remnant of Pelly Creek that currently flows under the seawall will be daylighted as part of the project.

Spring Equinox sunset watch @ Solstice Park
Mar 20 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join West Seattle’s own Solar System Ambassador Alice Enevoldsen on Wednesday, March 20th, to watch the Spring Equinox sunset at Solstice Park across from Lincoln Park. The sunset itself will be around 7:10 pm. All ages welcome! From Alice:

March 20 Spring Equinox Sunset Watch — 2019
March 18th, 2019
It’s time for the 40th seasonal sunset watch!

40!!!
When: Wednesday, March 20, 7:00 pm (so come at 6:30 pm)
Actual sunset is supposed to be at 7:22pm, but we have noticed that the Sun sets about 15 minutes earlier than the USNO says, because of the horizon altitude.
The equinox moment is Wednesday, March 20, 2:58pm
Where: Solstice Park – all the way up the hill from the tennis courts (or, if you’re not in Seattle, wherever you have a view of the western horizon!)
Who: Everyone welcome, as usual. (Please do leash your dogs as we usually have a good number of people, kids, and other dogs around.)

Come watch the sunset at Solstice Park in West Seattle. I’ll be there even if it is cloudy because sometimes the Sun peeks through just as it begins to set, but if it is driving rain or a thunderstorm I’m staying home with some tea!

Teens, Tech, and Sexuality: Parent Education Night @ West Seattle High School
Mar 27 @ 7:00 pm

West Seattle High School welcomes parents from the community.

Talking to your kid about tech and sexuality is hard! Words like “Media,” “Privacy,” “Safety,” “Porn,” and even “Sex” have different meanings than they did a generation ago.

Come learn from Jo Langford, MA, who has two decades of experience working with t/weens. She will be leading a discussion on how to connect with your child/ren in order to help them make informed decisions about and learn tools to deal with sexuality, growing up with technology, and relationships with confidence and seriousness–all while having fun along the way and doing as little harm to themselves and their peers as possible. This event will be held on March 27 at 7pm in the school Library. Please mark your calendar!

Cottage Grove Neighborhood Meeting @ Delridge Library Community Room
Apr 4 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm

Join us for a discussion about the Seattle Office of Housing (OH) oversight responsibilities pertaining to DESC Cottage Grove Commons and updates on outstanding community issues.

For the last several years, the Cottage Grove neighborhood has seen a steady decline in public safety with much of it centered on the 5400 block of Delridge Way. To be blunt, DESC Cottage Grove Commons continues to contribute to neighborhood issues, and this is disappointing.  The community needs to know what OH is doing to oversee Cottage Grove Commons and what is actively being done to address community concerns.

Dan Foley has accepted an invitation to attend on behalf of OH.
