OPEN HOUSE: Little Pilgrim School, a program for children 2-5 years old

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2018
11:00 AM – 1:30 PM
9140 California Ave. SW

Celebrating 65 years of providing quality education in this community! Established in 1952, Little Pilgrim Preschool is nestled at the base of Fauntleroy Park in West Seattle. Our philosophy and purpose is to encourage the whole child – to help each to grow intellectually, spiritually, physically, creatively, socially and emotionally. Children enjoy a rich, play-based curriculum that not only prepares them for kindergarten, but also instills in them a lifelong love of learning. Whether finger painting, building with blocks, running on the playground or on a field trip to the neighborhood grocery, every experience is seen as a learning opportunity.

Bring the whole family to play, tour the beautiful school spaces, meet the teachers, ask questions and pick up enrollment information for fall classes. For more information, please contact the Little Pilgrim School Director at 206-932-5600, Lorrie@fauntleroyucc.org.

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!

Westcrest Park Forest Restoration Work Party / Evento de Restauración en el Bosque del Parque Westcrest @ Westcrest Park
Mar 30 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join DIRT Corps in revitalizing Westcrest Park. We are working on the parcel of land next to 8th Ave that is overgrown with Himalayan blackberries! It’s up to us and our volunteers to bring it under control!

The beginning of this volunteer event will include a brief weed ID. Then, we will combine knowledge with action as we work to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtake the area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard.

Let’s work together to gradually transform and maintain Westcrest Park and make it a great public space for everyone to enjoy. Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there.

PLEASE RSVP HERE: Westcrest Park Forest Restoration.

Acompaña a DIRT Corps a revitalizar el Parque Westcrest. ¡Estamos trabajando en la tierra de la parcela de la 8a avenida del Parque Westcrest en donde la zarzamora está demasiado crecida! ¡Está en nuestras manos como DIRT Corps y en la de los voluntarios el mantener el control del crecimiento de la zarzamora en este espacio! El inicio de este evento voluntario incluirá una breve introducción de plantas invasoras. Combina el conocimiento con la acción mientras trabajamos para limpiar este hermoso espacio de las plantas invasoras que lo dañan y lo van desplazando de él.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Free Tax Help (by appointment) @ Southwest Library
Apr 13 @ 10:30 am – 5:00 pm

At the Southwest Library:

The Seattle Public Library, AARP, and the United Way of King County are working together to offer free tax help at 12 locations throughout the city through mid-April. Trained volunteers can answer questions and prepare personal tax returns.

This service is free and available to individuals by appointment at this location. Visit or call the branch to make an appointment. The free service is not available for business tax returns.

Drop-in tax help at this location is offered only as available.

The last client will be taken 30-45 minutes before the end of drop-in hours.

Contact info: Southwest Branch 206-684-7455 or Ask a Librarian

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
May 4 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Entomology lecture series @ Senior Center of West Seattle
May 8 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

West Seattle Entomologist Jen Paur of Tiny Science will be conducting a series of four lectures on the interesting and exciting lives of insects. Jen is an enthusiastic speaker who can engage audiences of all ages with her great passion for insects. She brings a selection of beetles, butterflies, mantises, or stick insects when she speaks. Wednesdays, May 8, 15, 22, 29 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. And if you like, you can join us before class at 5 pm for $3 beers in our Cafe!

1. Insects in General: This class will cover the history of insects from the Cretaceous period and their defining features and key assets that allowed them to become masters of our planet. The audience will leave with a new level of appreciation for insects from this fun talk.

2. The Orders of Insects: There are 32 different types of insects! Many that we are familiar with, some that we are not! We will explore these different types.

3. Comparative Study of Insects: How can one type of animal with three body parts, six legs, and four wings can take on so many different shapes and roles?

4. Insect Niches: Insects are incredibly diverse and abundant. We will explore how insects exploit niches, including topics like parasitoidy and eusociality, which are way more exciting than they sound!

Lecture Series is $20 members/$25 non-members. All ages welcome. Please sign up in advance by calling 206.932.4044 x1, as a minimum number of participants is required for this series to occur. SCWS, 4217 SW Oregon St.

From the 34th Legislative District Democratic Party: Our 34th PCO meetings/trainings are scheduled at local libraries through June 2019. These will be forums to review the role of a PCO and share experiences and challenges, how to reach out to your community and how we can support each other. We want to hear from you. We’ll discuss making connections and building relationships with voters in your precincts. Through meeting your voters you can learn which issues motivate them and share that information with the group, educate undecided or swing voters, and register voters. All to make sure Democrats are elected.

We’ll talk about the endorsement process in the 34th for resolutions, ballot issues, and candidates. We’ll discuss what the WA Dems move from local caucuses to a primary will mean to you as a PCO and how you can communicate the changes to your community. There is a section on voters’ registration and a review of VoteBuilder, our online data base. If you are a PCO in this area, please consider attending!

Entomology lecture series @ Senior Center of West Seattle
May 15 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

West Seattle Entomologist Jen Paur of Tiny Science will be conducting a series of four lectures on the interesting and exciting lives of insects. Jen is an enthusiastic speaker who can engage audiences of all ages with her great passion for insects. She brings a selection of beetles, butterflies, mantises, or stick insects when she speaks. Wednesdays, May 8, 15, 22, 29 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. And if you like, you can join us before class at 5 pm for $3 beers in our Cafe!

1. Insects in General: This class will cover the history of insects from the Cretaceous period and their defining features and key assets that allowed them to become masters of our planet. The audience will leave with a new level of appreciation for insects from this fun talk.

2. The Orders of Insects: There are 32 different types of insects! Many that we are familiar with, some that we are not! We will explore these different types.

3. Comparative Study of Insects: How can one type of animal with three body parts, six legs, and four wings can take on so many different shapes and roles?

4. Insect Niches: Insects are incredibly diverse and abundant. We will explore how insects exploit niches, including topics like parasitoidy and eusociality, which are way more exciting than they sound!

Lecture Series is $20 members/$25 non-members. All ages welcome. Please sign up in advance by calling 206.932.4044 x1, as a minimum number of participants is required for this series to occur. SCWS, 4217 SW Oregon St.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Jun 1 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

West Seattle High School 2019 all-school reunion
Jun 1 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL ALL-SCHOOL REUNION

First off – please note that we’re shaking things up a bit this year! With accessibility issues of many of our honored guests, and a very small cast of volunteers managing this event, we’ve opted for a MUCH simpler approach than in years past. Instead of breaking out into classrooms, we are designating tables for each range of years in or around the Commons, and for some in the Library. Think very large open house vibe. As laid out in the program map, tables will be organized chronologically by year range, so most of you will be next to the table of classes in the range above or behind you. No more climbing stairs, hunting for elusive rooms, traversing a daunting length of hallways, and dashing between classrooms to find and greet friends and family from other years.

We thank you in advance for supporting this change! As always, we welcome suggestions for improvement (highly recommended to be accompanied by offers for help ;) ), in our effort to maximize community and rapport while minimizing effort for planners and guests alike.

2019 Schedule of Events

4:00 – 5:30 pm View the Classic Cars showcased on SW Stevens outside the Historical entrance

4:00 – 4:30 pm Sign in, pick up programs, name tag and roam the halls

4:30 – 5:30 pm Individual Class Reunions in the Commons (or Library)

Sanislo Elementary auction @ SSC Brockey Center
Jun 1 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

This year the auction is going to be at The Brockey Center at South Seattle College on June 1st, 2019 at 6p. Admission to the auction is $40 per person and we hope you consider joining us.

Sanislo Elementary School is building a network of dedicated individuals from throughout our community whose support and passion helps increase the chances of success for our children. Last year at Sanislo while we had a goal of raising just $20,000, we ended up exceeding this goal by 50%. We raised $30,000 thanks to all of your donations to Sanislo! The school used this money to support: mindfulness/social emotional learning, a learning garden, and scholarships for after school enrichment programs.

This year our need is even greater. I interviewed key stakeholders including the Principal in order to determine what aspect of the school was in greatest need of support. One of the largest challenges the school is facing is the increasing age of the books and other instruction materials. Our children are struggling to experience the joy of learning and self discovery partially because the average age of their books is more than 10 years old! Our library has become out of touch with reality and the children are not as motivated to participate in self guided learning as children at other schools. Help us bring the joy of learning to our children.

Our annual auction is coming up soon! We hope you can join us once again in supporting educational equity. Come enjoy an evening of fun with us: dinner, dancing, drinks, silent auction, and dancing

34th Dems PCO meeting/training @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Jun 8 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Our 34th PCO meetings/trainings are scheduled at local libraries through June 2019. These will be forums to review the role of a PCO and share experiences and challenges, how to reach out to your community and how we can support each other. We want to hear from you. We’ll discuss making connections and building relationships with voters in your precincts. Through meeting your voters you can learn which issues motivate them and share that information with the group, educate undecided or swing voters, and register voters. All to make sure Democrats are elected.

We’ll talk about the endorsement process in the 34th for resolutions, ballot issues, and candidates. We’ll discuss what the WA Dems move from local caucuses to a primary will mean to you as a PCO and how you can communicate the changes to your community. There is a section on voters’ registration and a review of VoteBuilder, our online data base. If you are a PCO in this area, please consider attending! Email Nick (pco@34dems.org) with questions.

We’ll have donation collection containers should anyone be inclined to help us raise funds towards our Race & Equity and Diversity & Inclusion PTA initiatives which includes bringing in speakers, holding workshops, professional development, and adding anti-bias library materials along the subject matters of RACE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION to empower our students, their families and our community.

We are still looking for acoustic musical/entertainment performers and LGBTQ agencies whom are willing to donate their talent, time and information on the playground to entertain our families, friends, neighbors, et. al.

Jun 22 @ 2:45 pm – 4:45 pm

Our 34th PCO meetings/trainings are scheduled at local libraries through June 2019. These will be forums to review the role of a PCO and share experiences and challenges, how to reach out to your community and how we can support each other. We want to hear from you. We’ll discuss making connections and building relationships with voters in your precincts. Through meeting your voters you can learn which issues motivate them and share that information with the group, educate undecided or swing voters, and register voters. All to make sure Democrats are elected.

We’ll talk about the endorsement process in the 34th for resolutions, ballot issues, and candidates. We’ll discuss what the WA Dems move from local caucuses to a primary will mean to you as a PCO and how you can communicate the changes to your community. There is a section on voters’ registration and a review of VoteBuilder, our online data base. If you are a PCO in this area, please consider attending! Email Nick (pco@34dems.org) with questions.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Jul 6 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society
