Benefit plant sale
Apr 28 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

This is my third year captaining a LungForce Walk team, and last year I was the top fundraiser. I started walking after my non-smoker Mom had her second type of lung cancer and subsequent second surgery over a 9-year period. I’m a horticulturist and did a small sale last year by word of mouth, so am stepping it up a notch this year. Attached are two pics with some of the plants available this year. Some of them are limited in quantity, but will have multiples of all of the dahlias. Plant prices vary between sizes and varieties, but most all are $10 and under. In addition to what’s pictured, we also have some black eyed susans, lilacs, monarda, feverfew, sedum, ferns, lilies, and alyssum. Here also is the link to my team page, should anyone want to make a direct donation: http://action.lung.org/goto/AmyConverse2018

We will also have cookies for purchase!

5 Berries for Your Home Garden @ Community Orchard of West Seattle
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Seattle Farm School Event at COWS Presents:
Have a Berry Good Time: 5 Berries for Your Home Garden

Saturday, May 12th
1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Focus on:
Blueberries, raspberries, honeyberries, goumi, and marionberry.

Hunger and food insecurity are realities everywhere – even on college campuses. As a college education becomes less and less affordable, more students are forced to live on a shoestring budget. In recent years, this problem has prompted many campuses to establish food pantries to help students in need. One common side effect of poverty is food insecurity – not having reliable access to sufficient, nutritious food.

This year the Community Orchard of West Seattle is honored to partner with the South Seattle College Food Pantry and with the South Seattle College Permaculture Club! COWS is currently working towards and establishing means to help supplement nutritious food to this very important and local need. Our efforts this year will be focused on transitioning into a SSC Student lead Project.

We thank you for your continued interest and support of the Orchard and its mission. We look forward to your visit when out and about on a hike, visiting the campus, the Arboretum, the Chinese Garden or Wine Academy! We will be anxiously awaiting and preparing for the Seattle Farm School Berry Event! Mark your calendar! Kimberly Leeper, of Oasis Edible Naturescapes will be teaching this very informative and fun class. She has taught Intro to Food Forest at COWS once before and we appreciate all her hard work very much.

Kind Regards, Narcissa, Greg, Krista, LeAnn, Kayla and Bobby!

Roxhill Elementary invites you (yes, you!) to help us build our new playground at our new school — the renovated E.C. Hughes Elementary — on Saturday, June 2 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We need a total of 60 people to get the project done. Currently, we have 30.

Sign up here: http://signup.com/go/HswhdyT.

Two shifts are available and no experience is necessary. We’ll have tools, refreshments and trained supervisors from PlayCreation to help us put together and install equipment. Lunch will also be provided.

We are working on making child care available on site. Children under age 17 may not be within the build-site. Students/children between 14 and 17 eligible for Service Learning Hours may assist with projects outside of the build-site under direct supervision of an adult.

We need two shifts of 30 people each.

Shift one: 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Shift two: 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All community members are welcome.

We’ll also share more information soon on another community work day to move engineered wood chips in place. The new playground for Roxhill students at E.C. Hughes will be open to the public in the fall. This project has been made possible by a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund grant.

You are invited! Come All Around the World with us!

Thanks to the community support of Sanislo Elementary’s auction last year, we kicked our $5,000 goal to the curb and raised $15,000!

This windfall provided a mindfulness program, increased teacher stipends, created a ‘book fair bucks’ program and is affording scholarships to kids in need so they can participate in after-school enrichment! YOU, yes YOU, helped make this happen!

Let’s do it again!

Our annual auction is just around the corner and we hope you can join us once again in supporting educational equity.

Details:

– All Around the World Auction

– Saturday, June 2nd from 6 pm-10 pm

– Alki Masonic Center, 4736 40th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116

– Silent Auction

– Dinner and TWO Drink Tickets Included!

– A special performance by Seattle Kokon Taiko Japanese Drummers, a DJ, Dancing and more!

You can reserve your tickets online, or, if you can’t make it but would like to donate, you can do that through the link below as well.

Donations to our auction make a significant impact in the education of our kids. With over 70% of our families living in poverty, our school community simply cannot raise these essential funds alone. We hope to see you there!

Fly-tying with Brita Fordice at Emerald Water Anglers
Aug 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Brita Fordice was born, raised and learned to fish in Washington state. She taught herself to tie flies at age 10. Once she started, she never stopped.

These days she is an accomplished angler and guide on the beaches of the Hood Canal and Puget Sound, where her custom patterns really shine for cutthroat and salmon. Her flies have been featured in national magazines and she currently works for Sage Manufacturing in their research and development department.

She will be in the shop tying her remarkable baitfish patterns on the evening of Thursday, August 23.

Anyone interested in chasing fish that feed on other fish, either in fresh or salt water, or anyone interested in learning from masterful fly tying shouldn’t miss this event. Brita’s meticulous flatwings, squid, eel and shrimp patterns are uncanny representations of baitfish species.

EWA Fly Shop
August 23rd, 7 pm

Brita will start tying at 7:00 pm. She’ll work through a series of patterns and techniques and answer questions for an hour and a half. Tickets are $10 and available here. We’ll have some special materials ordered for the event and all fly tying materials will be 10% off for ticket holders.

‘Be There’ Rally 2018 @ West Seattle Elementary School
Sep 5 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 am

UPDATE: In case of a delayed start of school for Seattle Public Schools, this event will be postponed to correspond with the first official day of school. At this time, the first official day of school is September 5th, 2018. We will continue to update with any changes.

The community is invited to attend the third annual Be There Rally at West Seattle Elementary on Wednesday, September 5th, from 7:00am to 8:00am. The school, in partnership with Seattle Housing Authority, High Point, is rolling out the red carpet and asking community leaders, school supporters, family and friends to line up to cheer, clap and high-five students as they enter into the new school year.

School leaders are calling for 100 men and women to line the red carpet, dressed for success and ready to lead by example and cheer on High Point youth. Research shows that children whose family and community take an active role in their educational lives earn better grades, score higher on tests, enjoy school more and are more likely to graduate from high school and attend college.

Your presence at the school on the first day will support efforts to build valuable partnerships with families and members of the community to support student learning and positive academic outcomes.

To confirm your attendance or for more information, please contact Kyle Tunstall, Head Teacher, West Seattle Elementary at (206) 252-9450 or via email at kwtunstall@seattleschools.org.

West Seattle Elementary is located in the High Point Neighborhood at 6760 34th Ave SW, Seattle.

‘Like’ screening at Seattle Lutheran High School
Oct 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

First showing in the area of the screening LIKE.

A one-hour documentary about the impact of social media on our lives.

Seattle Lutheran High School invites you to a free screening of LIKE. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.

IndieFlix goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self-regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other. (Go here) to view the official trailer of the documentary.

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

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s annual Catholic Relief Services Ethical Trade Sale is coming up on Sunday, November 18 from 9:30 am-1:00 pm in the Walmesley Center (7000 35th Ave SW).

We live in an era of unprecedented economic interdependence. Ethical Trade seeks to change the ways in which conventional trade often leaves behind the most vulnerable people. By buying Ethical Trade, you support the efforts of skilled farmers and artisans working to break the cycle of poverty and to build stronger communities. Employers also assure that workers are treated with dignity and that forced labor is not part of the supply chain.

At the sale, you’ll find unique gift items, including chocolates, Advent calendars, nativities, crosses, holiday and home décor, scarves, ornaments, baskets, and much more. In addition to Ethical Trade items, you’ll find: holiday cards from Noel House (a Catholic Community Services shelter for homeless women), tasty treats sold by the Pre-K and 3rd grade classes to benefit WestSide Baby, Tanzanian rosaries and batiks items from Maryknoll, Catholic lip and beard balms benefiting youth ministry, Purpose Jewelry made by women who escaped Human Trafficking, and Olivewood Items from the Holy Land. While you browse, be sure to sample free Fair Trade coffee provided by Pura Vida.

Proceeds go to Catholic Relief Services and OLG’s efforts to bring Fair Trade coffee and tea to our events.
