Two local elementary schools – Olympic View and Sacajawea – have requests

February 8th, 2017 by Mike

Kam writes: “I noticed there’s a Maple Leaf school- Sacajawea – raising money for books.

Here’s the link. There, teacher Mrs. Meir, pre-K through 2nd grade at Sacajawea Elementary School, explains why she’s asking for donations up to $599:

Our classroom has a daily book circle in which the teacher reads to the students. The students in our classroom also have free time with books in our book area during choice time. Handling books help them to develop an understanding that pictures tell a story as do the words.

Please support this very worthy project to help students from high poverty situations with special needs and some of whom are English Language Learners to benefit from wider variety of classroom literature.

For a complete list of the book titles and costs, follow the link:

Over at Olympic View Elementary School, 504 N.E. 95th St., Melanie writes: 

ASK: The Olympic View PTA has generously funded the items needed to repair the lower playground rope/climbing net. Now what we need is “someone who is either by (1) a NPSI-Certified Playground Inspector (CPI), or (2) as a ‘community build’ under the direct supervision of an insured NPSI-CPI person.”

Are you that person or do you know someone who is? It would save the PTA an additional sum of money. Please contact Diana.nickel@gmail.com if you can help!

Support Non-Profit Bookstore in Seattle

January 31st, 2017 by Mike

This is a sponsored post.

SEATTLE – Resolve in 2017 to make positive personal changes and to help your community! Dr. Rudolf Steiner Bookstore and Children’s Shop, a small local bookstore in Seattle, is doing just that this year. The bookstore is offering you a way to support people and endeavors that build relationships and communities locally and abroad. Become a member of the Center for Anthroposophical Endeavors (CFAE/Rudolf Steiner Bookstore).

The CFAE is a nonprofit whose mission is to support, promote, and elevate all anthroposophic endeavors and related organizations who work out of the stream of anthroposophy. The non-profit bookstore in Seattle wishes to partner with customers to fulfill this mission.

CFAE memberships are now available for signup. Three levels of membership ($100, $150, or $200 annually) provide a number of great benefits such as discounts on books, toys, and lecture attendance and free shipping among other benefits to be announced.

Find out more and become a supporter at one of three levels. In one level, a portion of the membership fees will be donated to a fund supporting research and development in moral technology

The purchase of membership helps the non-profit continue to work in a financially responsible way and allows the bookstore to support and build awareness of all anthroposophic endeavors in: education, farming, medicine, therapy, literature, and the arts. Rudolf Steiner Bookstore will also support anthroposophist classes, groups, branches, and outreach organizations.

The Dr. Rudolf Steiner Bookstore & Children’s Shop is open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and has books, toys, crafts, and more for both adults and children. Call 206-985-2059 to learn more or visit their website. The store is located at the corner of Northeast 98th Street and Lake City Way Northeast, 2 ½ blocks from the Seattle Waldorf School.

Most drop-in activities now free at Community Centers

January 18th, 2017 by Mike

This post courtesy of our sister site My Ballard.

Thanks to funding from the Seattle Park District as part of the Community Center Strategic Plan, as of the first of the year, most drop-in activities  at Seattle Parks and Recreation community centers are now free.

During a public outreach process, Seattle Parks and Recreation heard from many communities that even small drop-in fees can be a barrier for people with low incomes, preventing many from taking part in some of our basic activities and services.

In general, a true drop-in activity is one that does not regularly hire staff or have regular materials and supply costs. For most community centers, this means the following activities are now free:

  • Tot Gyms and Tot Rooms
  • Fitness Rooms
  • Basketball, Pickleball, Dodgeball, Volleyball
  • Pool Tables
  • Table games like Bridge or Mahjong
  • and most other activities that previously had $1, $2, or $3 drop-in fees.

The following kinds of activities will continue to charge a fee:

  • Program drop-in (paying for a class one session at a time)
  • Special events
  • Drop-in activities held outside normal operating hours

For more information, or if you have questions about a previously purchased punch card for drop-in activities, contact Northgate Community Center at (206) 386-4283 orGreen Lake Community Center at (684-0780  to find out more.
