Native Plant ID and Invasive Plant Removal Along Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail @ Thistle Street Green Space
Dec 8 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

A beautiful area called the Thistle Street Green Space along the
Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail needs your help in a battle against invasive
species. Next to a local pea patch garden, Chief Sealth High School,
and Longfellow Creek, this piece of green space requires regular
maintenance to keep it clear of invaders like Himalayan
Blackberry, Buttercup, Herb Robert, and others. Come volunteer with
DIRT Corps and learn how to identify both native plants and invasive plants
as well as how to remove all kinds of invasive species so native
plants can thrive. Afterwards you can walk the trails and explore this
hidden gem in Delridge.

We strongly encourage everyone to renew or start a new membership for only $15 per person.

To join, simply attend our next PTA meeting or register online (http://www.fpepta.org). This gives you a vote (voice) on how your fundraising dollars are spent towards our amazing programs: music & art, enhanced assemblies, the Backpack program, student wellness, parent education events, and much more.

General Membership Meetings for the 2018/19 school year will take place at the school cafeteria, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

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

Guided Birdwatching Walk @ 4551 21st Avenue SW, Seattle WA 98106
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Guided Birdwatching Walk!
Saturday, April 6th at 10 am

Led by avid birder Scott Markowitz, he will help us find birds living in our beautiful West Duwamish Greenbelt.

Meet at the trailhead across the street from 4551 21st Avenue SW. Bring binoculars and sturdy shoes or boots. The walk will take about an hour.

Healthy Kids Day 2019 at the West Seattle Y @ West Seattle YMCA
Apr 27 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

On Saturday, April 27, the West Seattle YMCA is holding a free community event to inspire
more kids to keep their minds and bodies active at the annual YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day ® , the
Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families Sponsored by the
Howard Johnson ® by Wyndham hotel brand, Healthy Kids Day is an opportunity to ignite
children’s imaginations so that they can imagine what they’ll accomplish this summer. The
day-long event features activities such as hands-only CPR lessons, free helmets and helmet
fittings, games, healthy cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts to motivate and teach families
how to develop and maintain healthy routines at home throughout the summer months.
Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at over 1,500 Ys across the country by over one million
participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits that they continue all
summer long. When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles that prevent them from
reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school learning
activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than
the school year. As spring turns to summer, Healthy Kids Day is a powerful reminder not to let
children idle away their summer days. Instead, the Y wants families to focus on helping children
imagine what they can accomplish over the summer.

“When a child is healthy, happy, and supported they can make great things happen,” says
Shalimar Gonzales, Senior Executive Director, West Seattle and Fauntleroy YMCA. “We believe
in the potential of all children, and we strive to help kids find that potential within themselves.
A child’s development is never on vacation and Healthy Kids Day is a great opportunity to
educate families and motivate kids to stay active in spirit, mind and body throughout the
summer,” said Shalimar Gonzales, Senior Executive Director, West Seattle and Fauntleroy
YMCA

“All of us at Howard Johnson are incredibly proud to be supporting Healthy Kids Day, inspiring
families to get active, spend quality time together and create smiles that last a lifetime,” said
Clem Bence, Howard Johnson brand leader and vice president of operations. “Giving back to
the communities where our hotels operate is fundamental to our values as a brand and we couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with local Ys across the country on such a meaningful initiative.”

Howard Johnson has been a proud national partner of the Y for the past two years and three out of every four Howard Johnson hotels are located within just 10 miles of a local Y. In addition to supporting Healthy Kids Day, the brand offers all Y members up to 20% off stays at participating hotels across the country, with 10% of every booking benefiting the Y nationally.

Keeping Kids Healthy All Summer Long
In celebration of YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, the Y offers the following tips to help families
develop healthy habits this summer that can have a lifetime effect:

 High Five the Fruits and Veggies – Make sure kids get at least five servings of fruits
and veggies each day, the minimum number nutritionists recommend for healthy
childhood development. And to keep kids’ taste buds evolving, have everyone in the
family try at least one bite of a new fruit or vegetable at least once a month.

 Read Together – The summer is a great time to enjoy books with summer program
participants—and 30 minutes a day goes a long way! Take trips to the local library or
create a family reading challenge to see who can log the most minutes of reading.
Encourage youth to create their own stories as well.

 Get Moving! – Activities that require movement also help kids flex their mental muscle.
Use materials in unique ways: ask youth to build models, manipulate tools or develop
their own theatrical scenes.
 Play Together – Play may be the best way to prevent childhood obesity. By putting
more play into your family’s day, you will soon find yourself getting the activity that will
have your family feeling energized and strong.

 Make sleep a priority – Doctors recommend 10-12 hours of sleep a day for children
ages 5-12 and 7-8 hours per night for adults. Sleep plays a critical role in maintaining
our healthy immune system, metabolism, mood, memory, and learning.

West Seattle’s Healthy Kids Day takes place at the West Seattle YMCA in the Fauntleroy Triangle Area (3622 SW Snoqualmie St) from 10 am-1 pm and features fun, active play and educational activities, such as hands-only CPR lessons, water safety activities, healthy snack making, and more! Plus we’ll be waiving the joining fee!

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

Guided Bug Walk @ (see listing)
May 4 @ 10:00 am

Expert Amber Chiozza of Scarabs, a local entomological society, will teach us about insects and spiders living in our beautiful West Duwamish Greenbelt.

Meet at the trailhead across the street from 4715 21st Avenue SW. Bring water, sturdy shoes or boots and be prepared for the elements. The walk will take about 1.5 hours.

Sponsored by the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails Group, www.wdgtrails.org. For more information contact us at wdgtrails@gmail.com.

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)

West Seattle High School 2019 All-School Reunion After-Party @ Whisky West
Jun 1 @ 7:30 pm

West Seattle High School Alumni All-School Reunion After-Party Open Mic at Whisky West, Sat 6/1 7:30 pm:

Tim Turner has announced 2019 is his last year to host the annual open-mic live music event long known as the Westside High Alumni All-School Reunion After-Party. This event, started in 2006, features any number of willing and talented alumni musicians. Expect to see many of the usual suspects including Kevin Mason and others. In addition, there will be a special performance this year. The Crystal Sect band, made up of West Seattle High School students back in the 60’s, will perform a musical reprisal. Joining Tim are the other former Crystal Sect band members, Tom Hopp on bass, Dave Coleman on drums, Bob Rice on guitar, and Marc Orsen on keys.
Whisky West enjoys welcoming this robust community of revelers, and offer concoctions such as The Westside High and The Wildcat specialty drinks sporting visual hues of blue and gold.

Drop on over following the All-School Reunion for great snack and dinner options in addition to their notable beverage offerings, where fellow Westside High Alumni share an evening of music, dancing and community.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 2 all-day

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 15 all-day

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”
