From SPS, 23 of our high school students have placed as Semifinalists in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Corporation competition. Garfield had 13 students and led the field. Roosevelt had two as did Ingraham, Hale/Ballard/Center each had one and there was one student from the "Cascade Parent Partnership Program."
Good work to all these students!
One Board community meeting tomorrow with Director Martin-Morris at Diva Espresso at 80th and Lake City Way from 9:30-11:30 am.
Heads up - the first of Superintendent Banda's community meetings is Monday the 17th at Mercer Middle School from 6-7:30 p.m. There's also one on Tuesday the 18th at RBHS at the same time as the Monday event.
There is a School Board meeting next Wednesday the 19th but the agenda is not yet available. Sign-ups to speak start Monday morning at 8 am (either firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-0040 to leave a message). This might be a good time to pressure Banda on math concerns or the Board on BEX IV or any other issue that you feel needs to be daylighted.
What's on your mind?
