News and Events

Family Science Night at Camp Long
Camp Long is one of West Seattle's best kept secrets! Join us on Thursday, April 24th, from 6:30-8:00 pm to discover this amazing 68 acre forested park, a block off of 35th Ave SW! In fact, the #21 bus drops you off right there!

Bring the whole family to learn about owls through hands-on presentations, take a walk around the park to listen for and observe owls, and end the evening with a read-a-loud and s'mores around a camp fire. We hope to see you all there!

Please RSVP how many people will be coming so we can be sure to have enough s'mores supplies! You can RSVP Mrs. Ezenwaka via email at meezenwaka@seattleschools.org, or look for the flyer to come home with your student.

Check out our page with pictures and information from our last family science night, where we were joined by professional members of our community. And don't forget to check out Mrs. Ezenwaka's website, Seattle Science Child, for fun, easy science activities to do at home!





Seattle Schools Seeking Your Thoughts on Special Education in Our Schools

Families of Seattle Public Schools are invited to join experts from Louisiana State University and the TIERS Group (Teams Intervening Early to Reach all Students) during two Open Microphone Nights to give feedback on Special Education Services.

Join us:

  • Tuesday, April 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Rainier Beach High School, 8815 Seward Park S., Seattle Washington 98118
  • Wednesday, April 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Nathan Hale High School, 10750 30th Ave NE, Seattle

Seattle Public School’s Special Education Department is undergoing a Comprehensive Corrective Action Plan (C-CAP) to help improve results for our students in special education. As part of this plan, the department is working with experts from Louisiana State University and the TIERS Group for consultation on activities related to C-CAP targets.

Families and community members are invited to give feedback verbally or in writing during this meeting. There will be a sign-in sheet for you to leave comments, respond to a paper survey or stay and speak publicly.

The sign in sheet will be used to determine the order in which people speak.  Individuals will be allowed three minutes each to speak and any other comments can be written and left with one of the TIERS team members.

Interpreters will be provided for Somali, Spanish, Vietnamese and Cantonese. If you need an American Sign Language interpreter please contact Mary Perrigo at mmperrigo@seattleschools.org for arrangements.
