Seattle Public Schools will hold a Building Bridges for Summer Learning symposium on Saturday, May 18 at Garfield High School. All families are invited to attend this free event which includes workshops and a Summer Learning Community Resource Fair.

A light  morning snack and lunch will be served. Children's activities, transportation, and interpreters will be available.  Click here to download program brochure.

Wednesday, May 8th
Executive Committee Meeting from 10 am-11:30 am.  No agenda yet available.

Work Session: Growth Boundaries from 4-4:45 pm.  This is fairly short Work Session so I'm not sure how much of an early warning on new boundaries this might be.  No agenda yet available.

Work Session: Green Building Resolution from 5:45-6:45 p.m.  I am rather surprised to see a whole Work Session on this topic but this could be interesting as it seems to be a point of dispute among members of the Board.  (But it seems that some Board members want some clarity around this issue that was not available at the Board meeting where it was first introduced.)  No agenda yet available.

Note: there is an Executive Session sandwiched between these two about upcoming teacher contract negotiations and potential litigation.

Thursday, May 9th
Work Session: Budget from 4-5:30 p.m.  No agenda available.

Audit&Finance Committee Meeting from 5:30-7p.m. 

Saturday, May 11th
Community Meeting with Director Carr from 8:30-10 am at Bethany Community Church
Community Meeting with Director Martin-Morris from 9:30-11:30 am at Diva Espresso on Lake City Way.
Community Meeting with Director McLaren from 10 am to noon at the Southwest Branch public library.

Ballard High's jazz band placed first in the Mount Hood Jazz Festival last weekend. And they are playing Jazz Alley next Monday, 5/13, if you want to see them in action.

And you can catch a whole bunch of young local talent from beatboxing to bluegrass at More Music @ The Moore on Friday 5/10. Teen players representing many genres will be showcased and it's only $15/adult, $10/kid admission. Visit the Moore website, with information about this year's program, and video of past years: http://stgpresents.org/education/more-music
