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

Sunday, February 12, 2017
11:00 am–1:30 pm

Celebrating more than 60 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 we are 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 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. www.littlepilgrim.org

Day of Remembrance at South Seattle College
Feb 15 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

****UPDATE FROM SSC: Professor Nomura is no longer on the program but Professor Sumida still is****

At South Seattle College (WSB sponsor)

This year’s Day of Remembrance marks the 75th anniversary of President Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the evacuation and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans to internment camps throughout the west coast.

South Seattle College will have two speakers on February 15 and an exhibit running until March 3 to commemorate the injustices and hardships during this time, and discuss how it relates to our society today.

Speakers Wednesday, Feb. 15 in the Olympic Hall Theater (OLY)

10 am – 11 am: Atsushi Kiuchi
Atsushi Kiuchi is an internment camp survivor. He will discuss events before, during and after Feb. 19, 1942, when Executive Order 9066 was signed. Kiuchi will also discuss the military exploits of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, comprised of American soldiers of Japanese ancestry who fought in World War II, and connect current events with his past experiences.

11 am – 12 pm: Professors Gail Nomura and Steve Sumida
Professor Gail Nomura and her husband Professor Steve Sumida are Japanese American. They recently retired as professors from the University of Washington in the American Ethnic Studies department with a focus on the Asian American experience. They will discuss the Japanese American experience during the time period surrounding Executive Order 9066.

Exhibition

Through March 3: Fred T. Korematsu and the Pursuit of Justice Exhibit in the Campus Library (LIB):

President Bill Clinton awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States, to Fred Korematsu in 1998, saying, “In the long history of our country’s constant search for justice, some names of ordinary citizens stand for millions of souls.”

Through photographs, archival documents and quotes, the Fred T. Korematsu and the Pursuit of Justice Exhibit tells Mr. Korematsu’s story of challenging the WW II exclusion and confinement order.

Korematsu worked as a shipyard welder after graduating from high school until he lost his job after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He was 22 when the U.S. plunged into war. On May 9, 1942, his parents and three brothers reported to the Tanforan Assembly Center, but Korematsu stayed behind with his Italian-American girlfriend. His refusal to comply with the evacuation order led to his arrest on May 30, 1942. His fight against the mass removal of Japanese Americans resulted in a landmark Supreme Court case concerning wartime civil liberties.

In 2011, California held its first Fred Korematsu Day, the first day in the U.S. to be named after an Asian American, commemorating his lifetime of service defending the constitutional rights of Americans.

The exhibit was created by the Seattle University Law Library for the launch of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality at Seattle University School of Law.

SSC is at 6000 16th SW on Puget Ridge; here’s the campus map, if you need help finding the buildings mentioned above.

White Center Crab Feed fundraiser for Evergreen High School @ White Center Fraternal Order of the Eagles
Mar 4 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Are you a White Center resident? Are you an Evergreen High School alum or supporter? Here is a chance to make a tangible difference for students at Evergreen High School–for the price of a fresh crab dinner.

White Center community leaders are recharging the Evergreen Wolverine Booster Club. This is a crab feed by the community, for the community, to eat delicious food together, listen to live music by Island Soul, and–don’t miss this part–raise money to benefit the students of Evergreen High School.

White Center Crab Feed
Saturday, March 4, from 5–9 pm
White Center Fraternal Order of the Eagles

Music by Island Soul.

Tickets: $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
Contact Pat Thompson at (206) 349-8106 or email pvthompson206@hotmail.com

The three small schools on the Evergreen campus are unifying as Evergreen High School starting next fall. The Evergreen Wolverine Booster Club is a partnership of parents, teachers, coaches, and alumni coming together to support students. The club has been dormant for a number of years. “The Evergreen community and school staff are making a valiant attempt to revive a once active and proud booster club,” said Terri McMahan, director of athletics for Highline Public Schools.

Two of the organizers behind the effort to rebuild the booster club are longtime White Center residents Pat Thompson and Tyrone Curry.

“We are rallying this community to come together to support the students who attend Evergreen,” said Curry. “Let’s establish a consistent network of supporters, volunteers, and fundraisers to lift our own boat and pull together for the good of these young people and this neighborhood.”

It’s simple really. It starts with a crab feed. It isn’t cheap, but then fresh crab isn’t cheap either. “And what price do you put on helping to even the playing field–maybe literally–for the young people of our community?” asks Thompson. “We are White Center. We have strength and community power and alumni that have barely been tapped.” Make plans for a fun, local evening out with live music, succulent crab, and the vibrant White Center community that describes itself as “not so white and not so centered!” A longtime schools supporter, the White Center Eagles are donating the venue and have secured a donation of crab from Alaska.

Evergreen High School is reuniting as a community hub with increased opportunities, a personalized experience, dual language, strong extra-curricular programs, and a world-class education. It’s a perfect time to send a powerful message to the students and staff of this local high school: “We ALL belong, and we believe in you!”

Not local but want to support the Evergreen Wolverine Booster Club? Contact Pat Thompson.

4th Annual Environmental Issues Slam @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 20 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The 2017 Environmental Issues Slam event is sponsored by the Washington Foundation for the Environment (WFFE).

The Slam is a great opportunity for middle and high school students to channel their passion and concern for a local environmental issue into a short, creative, multimedia presentation that will inspire others to take action.

Student teams or individuals present their environmental issue in front of a live audience in the spirit of a “slam” style performance which is characterized by a short (5 minutes) informative and entertaining presentation. The Slam is intended to educate both the community audience and the students themselves as they research and develop their presentation.

Participants:
Students in grades 6-12
Educators or youth leaders who work with middle or high school students and will bring a team to the Slam.

Participants compete for two prizes: a People’s Choice Award determined by audience vote and a Judge’s Choice Award determined by a panel of experts in environmental fields.

“I have participated in the Environmental Slam for the last three years, and each time has taught me something valuable and useful that I doubt I could have learned elsewhere. Through the many issues that I researched, compiled information on, and presented to the audience I began to develop a passion for social change, leadership and participation. At my last Slam, my projects (Students for Sustainable Slopes) even won, and I continue to work on it to this day. The Slam provided me with a launching board to promote development in my community and as a consequence has made me feel like I have begun to successfully contribute to society and my future.”

Gatewood Elementary playground design presentation @ Gatewood Elementary Cafeteria
May 8 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Help us kick off Gatewood Elementary’s playground improvements!

The final draft design for the SW corner of our playground—based on student and community priorities—will be presented this coming Monday, May 8, 6-6:30pm in the school cafeteria just before the general PTA meeting. Karen Kiest, landscape architect, and Gatewood’s playground steering committee will present the design, explain next steps in fundraising and implementation, and take questions and final feedback from our community.*

And, we need your help to make playground improvements a reality!

To apply for a $100,000 implementation grant from the Neighborhood Matching Fund in June, we need to come up with $50,000 worth of community match in the form of volunteer hours, cash, and in-kind donations. Can you, family, and friends pledge volunteer time for work parties?  All ages welcome!  Can you offer a cash donation?  Are you a contractor who could help with heavy equipment or irrigation work?  Do you own a plant nursery or related business that could donate trees, soil, mulch, sod, or other needed materials for improvements?  How about food and drinks for work parties?  It all counts toward our match, so come and lend your support for playground improvements. If you can pledge to help but can’t make the meeting on Monday, please email Sandy Lennon at sandylennon@comcast.net.

On that note, save the date!  Second Gear Sports, (WSB sponsor)our West Seattle sports consignment store, is donating 10% of sales on Sunday, May 21, to playground improvements. Gear up for your summer sports on May 21 and help us on our way to a better playground.

*Playground design work has been generously funded by a Small Sparks grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Neighborhood Matching Fund and the Gatewood PTA.

Neighborhood Preschool’s 10th anniversary
Jun 10 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

ON Saturday, June 10, Neighborhood Preschool will be celebrating 10 years of nurturing and educating 3-5 year olds in West Seattle. In 2007, after years of working in many other child education capacities, Stephanie Thiele realized her dream of creating a small, intimate space that fostered creative learning. Her goal since then has been to help both children and parents gently transition from the early years at home to the larger world of elementary school, while at the same time cultivating curiosity and imagination.

Trained in early childhood and elementary education, Stephanie also sits on the board of Directors for the West Seattle Preschool Association and is involved throughout the community. Known for her creative, engaging, and nurturing approach, she’s seen whole sibling groups come through her doors over the years. She remains committed to offering a smaller more personal option for preschoolers, with no more than an 8 to 1 teacher-student ratio.

All those who love and appreciate Miss Stephanie and the work she does with West Seattle kids, are invited to drop by the Neighborhood Preschool June 10th between 1-4 pm.
The address is: 6902 35th Ave SW, Seattle
or if you have further questions feel free to call: 206-852-1542.

Art Walk event at Viscon Cellars with Words & Wine and Lindsay Peyton
Jul 13 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Three Texas transplants are joining forces to show West Seattle that wine, art and literature make the best pairing.

Winemaker Ben Viscon, entrepreneur Jessica Trouillaud and artist Lindsay Peyton are planning a unique event for the next West Seattle Art Walk, beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 13 at Viscon Cellars, located at 5910 California Ave SW.

“We’re bringing three different forms of art together in a really fun and interesting way,” Trouillaud said. “And we’ve all migrated from Texas to West Seattle on different paths and walks of life to create art here.”

Matching the perfect wine with reading material is Trouillaud’s speciality – and she has built a business around her passion entitled “Words & Wine.”

Part book club, part online wine retailer, Words & Wine is designed to appeal to both wine lovers and bookworms.

Shoppers select a book they want to purchase and Trouillaud selects a wine to go with it. She includes a postcard explaining her selection as well as a bookmark with reading notes and tasting notes printed on it.

For the West Seattle Art Walk, Trouillard will select books that go with the wines available at Viscon Cellars.

And for visual pairings with Viscon’s fruit of the vine, oil paintings by Lindsay Peyton will be on the walls.

Peyton, Trouillaud, and Viscon not only share Texan roots; they also all work to create unique experiences through their craft.

“Lindsay’s paintings are incredibly expressive and beautiful,” Trouillaud said. “Ben’s wine is full of impressive character, each having a great background story. And with Words & Wine, I bring together literature and wine in a way that highlights each.”

Peyton said that in addition to great wine, the tasting room at Viscon Cellars has a special ambience, which makes it a natural fit for art and community.

“Viscon Cellars almost has its own life,” Peyton said. “People are more friendly there; they talk to each other, to strangers. Ben has made it a gathering space for friends and neighbors, with a warm, inviting feel. I hope my paintings are the same way – so that viewers feel like they can walk into the interiors and spend time there.”

It is no coincidence that Viscon Cellars has become an art gallery and venue for the West Seattle Art Walk.

Showcasing local artists has been a part of the vision owner Ben Viscon has had for his tasting room from the start.

“I love the arts,” he said. “My family owned some art galleries in El Paso, where I grew up. My dad had a kind of combination art gallery and artist supply studio that he owned and ran. As a kid, I worked with him all the time on weekends and summer breaks. I gained an appreciation for all forms of art.”

He wants to help local artists share and sell their work.

“Now that I am a small business owner myself, it is important to me to support art,” he said. “I want to feature local artists and help them tell their story. It is also a conversation piece with my customers. They come in for the wine, and then they start noticing the walls are full of beautiful art and start asking questions.”

Viscon said Trouillaud’s pairing of wine and literature was a natural fit.

“After hearing Jessica’s story and enthusiasm, I had proposed that we have her match up a couple of my wines with books and put some packages together,” he said. “Then we decided to add in another Texan by featuring Lindsay and her amazing talent during the art walk.”

Shrek the Musical @ West Seattle High School
Aug 11 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is proud to present SHREK THE MUSICAL.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” and thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
“SHREK THE MUSICAL is sweet and busy, nice and big, and, every so often, extremely lovable,” writes Newsday.

This production will be performed at West Seattle High School Theater, August 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 7:30 and August 13, 19 and 20 at 3:00. Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at West Seattle High School Theater, 3000 California Ave SW, an hour before the show on performance days.

‘Pencil Me In For Kids FUNDrive’ @ WS YMCA
Aug 12 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Let the magic of giving turn unneeded items into needed school supplies.

For the 22nd year, “Pencil Me In For Kids” is helping provide essential school supplies to West Seattle elementary students-in-need. This year we are raising funds in cooperation with Value Village.

The “Pencil Me In For Kids FUNDrive” is Saturday, August 12 from noon – 8 pm at the West Seattle YMCA in conjunction with the West Seattle Outdoor Movie, “Finding Dory”.

By donating gently-used clothing, shoes, accessories, book, linens, and small household items (no furniture), you can help provide the 13 West Seattle elementary schools with basic supplies such as black & white composition books, pencils, colored pencils, glue sticks, dry erase markers, pink erasers, washable markers, and pocket-file folders.

We get paid for every pound of goods donated and we use the funds to buy each school’s requested items.

Start collecting now. If you can’t get to the YMCA that day, we can arrange to pick-up prior to the 12th. For more information: Email Ann Avery at pencil.me.in.for.kids.2017@gmail.com

School Bake Sale for Hurricane Relief @ West Seattle Montessori School & Academy
Oct 16 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Our middle school students are organizing a plan to help contribute to some of the rebuilding in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. They researched and found a Montessori school similar to ours in San Juan called La Casa Montessori. This school has 130 students and operates a preprimary through elementary age Montessori program. Their school building has been hit with major structural damage, and a loss of a portion of their roof. Our Spanish teacher Suely called the director of the school and was able to reach her on the first day she had phone service after the hurricane. She said several of her students’ families have lost everything, and that the destruction was everywhere. She was very grateful and encouraged by our call from one Montessori school to another in this extremely challenging time.

Throughout October we will be holding bake sales every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 am-9 am near the school arrival drop off area (11215 15th Ave SW) (NO Sales on October 13 or October 27 as middle school is not in session). Breakfast goodies will be available for purchase for $3 (or more if you’d like to donate more!). All proceeds will go directly to La Casa Montessori via their GoFundMe campaign.

Here is a link to their Facebook page as well.

There are Montessori schools worldwide, and this opportunity to connect with our own Global Montessori Community is a powerful reminder that all we need to do is extend ourselves just a little bit to make a life changing difference. Our students are truly leading mindfully and thinking globally with this fundraiser, and we thank you for your help in advance!

School Bake Sale for Hurricane Relief @ West Seattle Montessori School & Academy
Oct 30 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Our middle school students are organizing a plan to help contribute to some of the rebuilding in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. They researched and found a Montessori school similar to ours in San Juan called La Casa Montessori. This school has 130 students and operates a preprimary through elementary age Montessori program. Their school building has been hit with major structural damage, and a loss of a portion of their roof. Our Spanish teacher Suely called the director of the school and was able to reach her on the first day she had phone service after the hurricane. She said several of her students’ families have lost everything, and that the destruction was everywhere. She was very grateful and encouraged by our call from one Montessori school to another in this extremely challenging time.

Throughout October we will be holding bake sales every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 am-9 am near the school arrival drop off area (11215 15th Ave SW) (NO Sales on October 13 or October 27 as middle school is not in session). Breakfast goodies will be available for purchase for $3 (or more if you’d like to donate more!). All proceeds will go directly to La Casa Montessori via their GoFundMe campaign.

Here is a link to their Facebook page as well.

There are Montessori schools worldwide, and this opportunity to connect with our own Global Montessori Community is a powerful reminder that all we need to do is extend ourselves just a little bit to make a life changing difference. Our students are truly leading mindfully and thinking globally with this fundraiser, and we thank you for your help in advance!
