To raise money and support Immigrant Families Together, students and parents from the Taproot School have been selling lemonade (summer) and Hot Cider (by donation) to ferry travelers and park goers since school began in September. They gather in front of the southern Lincoln Park parking lot, with mobile sellers to catch those in line. All proceeds go to Immigrant Families Together and all supplies have been donated or created by the students and families.

So far this year, the Taproot school sold lemonade for the cause, raising $1,000 from generous West Seattle/Vashon/Southworth travellers in August and $546 from Hot Cider in October. There was a smaller crew in December who raised over $100 during the holiday break. Our enthusiasm continues as we have now organized for a regular series of Hot Cider/Lemonade sales to keep this incredible organization and cause top of mind. We are hoping the warm cider and excited kids will continue to raise awareness, spirits and funds and encourage people to turn out to support the school’s efforts.

Puget Ridge Edible Park work party
Apr 5 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The dark and short days are behind us and spring will be here soon. Even though, if you have not been to PREP lately, you may be surprised at the progress made over the winter months. As usual the first Sundays of the month, March-October, we invite the greater community and PREP family to join us in a celebration of nature and our methods of permaculture techniques and learning opportunities. March is the time to really get going on the cold-loving plants before it is too warm to enjoy them. Planting beds are being prepared for direct sowing and seedling plantings. Come see how to turn “overwhelming” invasive growth into a fertile and abundant food oasis.

CANCELED – Improvising with Life Lab @ Fauntleroy Schoolhouse
Apr 5 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

*CANCELED FOR 3/8*

Improvising With Life Lab
DATES: Sundays 02/09, 03/08, 04/05, 05/03
TIME: 6:30-8:30 pm
LOCATION: Fauntleroy Schoolhouse

INVESTMENT: $80 for all four labs or $25 individually

Would you like to experiment with how improv can influence your daily life? Step into Play It Out Improv’s laboratory, a microcosm of life, where we experiment with practices that spark “a-ha”s and insights that we can take into our daily lives. There are many ways to get to know ourselves better. What makes improv unique is that we do it in relationship with each other in unknown situations. Sound familiar? Yep, that’s life. Improv can be a powerful, friendly way to practice skills in presence, connection, and play… skills that strengthen our relationships and ramp up our daily joy.

Our format is simple, playful and flexible. We propose questions that come up in our lives. Ones that we genuinely don’t know the answers to… call them wonder questions. Then use improv and other mind/body centering practices to help us have an experience of that question in the Lab.

Here are some questions we’ll play with:

1. I wonder how I can have fun with “doing it wrong”?

In our culture, the context is often right/wrong, good/bad, smart/dumb… etc. This context is supposed to be disrupted in improv, but that doesn’t mean we don’t continue to apply it to ourselves regardless. The Lab is a fun, safe place to notice our experience of “doing it wrong” and even have fun with it!

2. I wonder how I can notice patterns and consciously choose to participate with them or make a new choice?

One of the principles of improv is to notice the pattern, continue it for a while and then break it, releasing lots of energy. When we get stuck in a pattern in our lives, especially one we don’t actively choose, we can feel drained, lose touch with our creativity and feel frustrated. When we practice noticing patterns, we bring more awareness to our lives and when we make new choices, we can significantly increase our aliveness.

3. I wonder how my commitment affects what I create?

Commitment in improv is about being fully in or fully out, no waffling, no limbo. Scenes inevitably go better when improvisers are committed. Committing is the very first step to being present and creating what we want. Without it, who knows where we will go in improv or life?

Talk about ‘Anne Braden: Southern Patriot’ @ Online
Dec 14 @ 8:00 pm

December 14, 8:00 PM: Zoom Discussion about Anne Braden: Southern Patriot Documentary

Admiral Church and West Seattle Meaningful Movies present the next film, Anne Braden: Southern Patriot, in our Second Monday Racial Justice Film Series. Watch the film on the church’s website, admiralchurch.org/events, then tune in to the film conversation on December 14th at 8:00pm on Zoom.

Anne Braden: Southern Patriot provides a moving, in-depth biography of an organizer and journalist who for a remarkable 60 years participated in the most significant movements for racial and economic justice in this country’s most conservative region – the South. Her conservative background gave her special insight into white racism, why it poses such a great obstacle to social change in this country and what progressive white people can do to end it.

All are welcome to watch and learn about Anne Braden, a civil rights worker who impacted our country’s history with her support of racial justice in words and works throughout her lifetime.

South Seattle Cooperative Preschools’ Music Funfest @ online
Mar 20 @ 10:00 am
Spring Virtual Music FunFest presented by SSC Co-op Preschools @ online
Mar 20 @ 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.

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.

Full Tilt Ice Cream fundraiser for White Center Cooperative Preschool @ Order online
Apr 26 – Apr 29 all-day

We need you to eat ice cream, cookie dough, and cotton candy for a great cause!

The past year has brought all sorts of challenges for schools. Our local preschool, the White Center Co-Op Preschool (part of the larger South Seattle College Cooperative Preschools) has seen a huge increase in financial assistance requests, and outdoor classes and remote learning has meant new demands for class materials. But through it all, the school has kept kids learning and playing, and given families invaluable support through community and the parent education program. Now we are offering our newest and most sugary Covid Pack ever to help raise money for this incredible school.

The Sugar Rush Covid Pack includes a pint of ice cream, a pint of vegan chocolate chip edible cookie dough, and a quart of cotton candy. You’ll also get a one of kind piece of art from one of the kids you are supporting. The cost is $30, with half going straight to the school.

Order online now through Thursday, April 29 and pick up starting Friday, April 30th at Full Tilt in White Center.
