First day of July so bring on the summer weather. (I'm an Arizona girl so about this time of year I get mighty jumpy.)
From the district:
The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation has donated musical instruments to four Seattle elementary schools, a middle school and a high school.
The Foundation, which donates new and refurbished musical instruments to under-served schools, community music programs and individual students nationwide, awarded $130,574 worth of instruments to the following schools: Bailey Gatzert, Concord International, Highland Park and Northgate elementary schools, Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School.
Also, more good news:
Seattle Public Schools has been awarded $300,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to expand a program that provides a fresh fruit or vegetable snack to every student nearly every day. The money will go to 14 elementary schools where 70 percent or more of students receive a free or reduced-price lunch.
Five schools participated in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program during this school year -- Bailey Gatzert, Concord, Emerson, Northgate and Van Asselt – and they will be joined by nine additional schools in 2011-12. Those schools are Dearborn Park, Dunlap, Hawthorne, Highland Park, Madrona, Martin Luther King Jr., Roxhill, West Seattle and Wing Luke.
What's on your mind?
