Feb 25 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 pm

From Shorewood Christian School:

Please come eat for a good cause: 10% of Zippy’s Daily intake on Feb 25th will be donated to Shorewood Christian’s Yearbook program to help reduce the cost of Shorewood’s Yearbook offered to grades Pre-K through 12th. These funds will be used to make up the difference of the pricy printing costs that the book fees did not cover. We do our best to make our full color, hardback, 116 paged yearbook affordable to all the families who want one, but we need your help to make this happen. So please bring your friends and family anytime on Thursday, February 25th and show your support for the kids and families in your community. Thank you!!

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men.

Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it.

The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men. SCREENING IS OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY!

Wednesday, March 16 at 7 pm
in the Madison Middle School library

There will be a short PTSA meeting prior to the screening which begins promptly at 7:30 pm.

Apr 9 @ 7:30 am – 10:00 am

Hello WSHS Supporters:

We are set for our 2ND ANNUAL WSHS WILDCAT GOLF TOURNAMENT presented by the WSHS Boys Basketball program. This years event is SATURDAY, APRIL 9 AT 7:30 AM AT RIVERBEND GOLF COURSE IN KENT, WA.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALL BOOSTER CLUB.

This fundraiser is great opportunity to give back to our young men and provide them with great upcoming opportunities. Last years event was a great success, as the funds we raised paid in full for a trip to the elite GONZAGA UNIVERSITY BASKETBALL TEAM CAMP in June. That experience we gave to our kids will last a lifetime, plus benefit the team in the present.

At this time we are seeking golf tournament sponsorship and participation. There are a few ways to support our tournament:

* Hole sponsorship (Gold & Blue Level)
* One time monetary donation
* Prize Donations
* Golf participation

Please reply back to me if you have questions about sponsorships, participation, or any questions concerning the event keffazio@gmail.com (253) 250-8989.

The Mayor’s Education Summit is a community process designed to identify ways the City of Seattle can help address long-standing inequalities in our public school system.

The Mayor’s Education Summit begins first with a series of Community Conversations and other outreach events happening throughout March and April of 2016. They will take place in schools, community-based organizations, and businesses across Seattle. We’re asking community members, parents and families, students, teachers and school administrators, and business leaders and employers, for their ideas about ways to improve educational opportunities for all children and youth in Seattle. Educating our students is the responsibility of us all. Join the conversation, and make success a reality for all Seattle’s students.

Community Parent Education Night @ Explorer West Middle School
Apr 25 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Coming up at Explorer West Middle School (WSB sponsor):

Join us on Monday, April 25, 2016 for our Community Parent Education Night where we will be discussing teen anxiety and its affect on the daily lives of middle school students and their families.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns for children and adults, affecting upwards of 20% of children and adolescents over the lifespan. Sadly, untreated anxiety can lead to depression, missed opportunities in career and relationships, increased substance use, and a decreased quality of life.

Parents play an essential role in helping their child or teen manage anxiety. Do you have questions about your child’s level of anxiety when it comes to school, homework, or family and social situations? Do you need new strategies to help with these challenges at home or school?

Anxiety can be managed and our two experts on teen anxiety help us understand how anxiety works, what’s normal and what’s not, and what you need to know.

Our speakers, Peter Weiss and Carolyn Carlson, are licensed mental health practitioners. This presentation and discussion will cover trends and types of teen anxiety, normal anxiety vs. clinically problematic, when to consider therapy, dealing with resistance to therapy, and supporting parents and families of teens experiencing anxiety.

This event is free and open to all families!

Adults only please, no children.

This coalition will bring together people representing different community sectors to gather data and assess community needs and resources. The coalition will create a strategic plan that outlines their vision for how this funding should be used in a way that aligns with the Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI) model, but is specific and targeted to their community. Once the plan is accepted, the coalition will determine the appropriate prevention strategies for their community and ensure that these strategies are effectively implemented.

Community Meeting: Seattle Schools Transportation Issues Affecting Students @ West Seattle High School, library
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Dear Seattle Public School Families and Community:

We want to invite you to a very important meeting on Monday, September 26th, 7 pm, in the West Seattle High School library. We will be discussing the transportation issues affecting our students.

Our high school student athletes currently have to leave school at 1 pm for away events because of the Seattle School Districts transportation plan. This means they have to be dismissed at 12:45 pm missing all of 5th and 6th periods, lunch and part of 4th period as well. This is unacceptable and we need to do something about this.

The West Seattle Booster Club invites you to join us in taking our concerns to the Seattle School Board. We are inviting families, staff, PTSA, Booster Clubs, and community members from all of the Seattle High Schools to join our efforts.

On Monday, September 26th we will learn more about these issues, discuss our plans moving forward, and coordinate our actions for the School Board meeting we will attend as a group. Please join us. The more voices they hear, the better the impact.

Thank you for your support!

Children’s Academy of Seattle open house
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Children’s Academy of Seattle, a Spanish-immersion preschool, is having an open house at their second West Seattle location on October 1st and October 8th, 10:00 am to noon:

Children’s Academy of Seattle
Spanish Immersion Program
Ages: 2 months to 5 years old

Date: Saturday October 1st and
Saturday October 8th

Hours: 10:00 am- Noon

Address: 9635 17th Ave SW, Seattle WA 98106.

The program at Children’s Academy of Seattle supports optimal Spanish-language learning by tying language to a broad range of day-to-day activities. Children learn language best by experiencing it naturally, by being immersed in it.

The benefits go beyond being bilingual. Exposure to another language, through immersion, provides cultural competency and sensitivity to others. Language immersion takes advantage of a child’s natural ability to rapidly acquire another language. At no time in life is this task easier than in early childhood.

Children’s Academy of Seattle believes that young children develop to their fullest potential when they are allowed to enjoy life at an unhurried pace. Our program focuses on imagination and creative work and play. Our center offers a rich curriculum and hands-on learning, science, and social skills.

Our staff has a minimum of five years teaching child development experience. Our high-quality program with experienced teachers ensures success in learning a second language.

Revive Denny IMS’s Learning Garden
Oct 22 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Little Red Hen Project and Denny International Middle School Science Department invite you to join them in the work of reviving the school’s Learning Garden. As one parent put it:

The Denny Learning garden will provide our kids with more than just tomatoes. In this garden, kids will have a hands-on learning experience, giving a real, tangible understanding to the lessons that are taught at their desks.

Kids and parents at Denny will reap the rewards of community building as the lessons of biology mix together with the lessons of teamwork and patience. Departments will “adopt” the garden for a month to maintain the upkeep, as the Little Red Hen Project (LRHP) provides the consulting toward growing a garden that can teach our kids the lessons that can’t be taught with an iPad.

High School Students can earn service hours on campus by taking on leadership positions. After school programs can be held in the plaza at the garden, or in the amphitheater, which faces a native bioswale.

If (when) we get the project infrastructure in place, we may also be able to provide a place for troubled students can option, rather than detention, so instead of staring at their thumbs in detention hall, kids can watch their thumbs turn green.

The Little Red Hen Project also points out that this is about food justice, one of the great divides in our area and elsewhere, “a problem that impacts our youth the most, as kids go to school without proper nutrition, which leads to a decline in grades and mood. The Little Red Hen Project is dedicated to reaching our community families to teach each other how proper food can lead to a better future.”

Feb 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Freshmen in Mr. Azinger’s 9th grade classes will have spent 4 and a half weeks working with a teaching artist to stage and adapt student written poems.

After a week of on-your-feet, skills-based instruction, students work in groups to stage and adapt poems written by 9th graders from Ms. Griffin’s classes. Our students have truly grown as collaborators and thinkers as the initial reticence to work in groups was quickly replaced by a thoughtful exchange of ideas. The empathy and compassion that students show is delightful, even more so in that they are so focused on successfully presenting their adaptation of the poem. Please come enjoy the result of their hard work and growth on February 9th at 7 pm in the Auditorium at Chief Sealth International High School.

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.

Delicious appetizers, dinner and desserts will be prepared and served by our students with the school’s cutting-edge Culinary Arts Program.

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!”

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.”
