Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Parade Update
Dear Alki Families,
It's no secret that at Alki, we support the Super Bowl winning Seattle Seahawks! This year, I have shared with students some of life's lessons we can learn from our local team during our Alki Way assemblies: goal setting, perseverance, teamwork, kindness, and now celebrations! The best, and most high functioning teams, take time to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments. Our students have signed posters declaring that we are "All in, 100%" for "Learn Mode". Our posters can be seen in the main hallway and in our lunchroom. Please come by to see them.
On February 5, parade day, Alki Elementary will open its doors to our students, as we do each and every school day. Students and staff are invited to make it "Blue Wednesday" and wear Seahawk or Alki colors to school. We are making plans to have an indoor recess option for interested students during their lunch recess where they can elect to watch the parade together to share in the celebration along with many other citizens of our city and community.
If you are planning on attending the parade with your Alki child(ren), please call the absence in as you normally would. As another principal shared earlier this week, we are like the Seahawks, "Safety First"! We want to make sure we have accounted for all of our students. And please note that your child's attendance at this historic community event will be excused from school.
All In and Go Hawks!
New 4 Way Stop
A new four way stop and additional crosswalk have just been added in front of our school at the intersection of 59th St. and Stevens St. Please be aware of these traffic revisions, particularly during student drop-off and pick-up times. Thank you for keeping our students safe!
Principal Coffee Chat
Principal Stanton will be hosting a series of monthly coffee chats for parents and interested community members. The coffee chat is an informal conversation where Principal Stanton and the Alki community can talk about what is happening in our school. She will share information about the work of our students and staff; parents and community members can ask questions and share ideas. Please join Principal Stanton for the first coffee chat on January 24 from 9:00-9:30 am.
Parent Representatives Needed for our BLT!
The Alki Building Leadership Team (BLT) is recruiting additional parent volunteers to serve as members. The purpose of our BLT is to promote and facilitate collaborative decision-making processes which impact student achievement in our building. Specifically, the BLT oversees our school improvement plan, our professional development plan, and our school budget. We meet two Mondays per month from 3:10-4:10 pm in our school library. If you are interested in serving a 2 year term as a parent representative on our BLT, please email Ms. Stanton by January 31, 2014 at firstname.lastname@example.org for a short application form.
