In the past 10 days, Stand for Children’s political action committee has spent about $86,000 on digital ad buys and another $30,000 on phone calls supporting Zempel, according to the state Public Disclosure Commission, which tracks campaign spending.Of course they don't; again, there's your courage of convictions especially in election reasoning. I do want to note that Cyrus Habib, who is running for lieutenant governor, does credit "public schools" for his education in his tv ads.
The education reform group recently endorsed Zempel over Madsen in part because of its concerns over last year’s charter school decision, spokeswoman Deborah Jaquith said.
Yet the pro-charter group’s ads, which appear online, don’t mention the charter school case.
Seattle Schools is teaming up with Pacific Northwest Ballet (this is announced as though it is new but apparently has been going on a long time.) The program is just at one grade level.
The Discovery Dance program provides standards-based dance education using adapted curriculum so all students, including students with special needs, can enjoy equitable access to all the fun of dance class.One, sounds great but two, I thought our principals pretty much had their hands full with both curriculum mandates and space.
Discovery Dance is free to participating schools. Each participating school is highly involved in planning and implementation of the program. Teachers are key in planning lessons that relate to classroom curriculum, principals and staff are instrumental in providing communication home to families and coordinating space and in-school opportunities for students.
Schools/teachers/parents can apply on their own. PNB lists these schools: Arbor Heights (partner since 2008), Broadview Thomson K-8 (partner since 2008), Daniel Bagley (partner since 1999), Graham Hill (partner since 1999), Highland Park (partner since 2008), Leschi (partner since 2010), Pinehurst K-8 (partner since 2009), South Shore K-8 (partner since 2010), Thurgood Marshall (partner since 2013).
No director community meetings on Saturday but there is a free Princess Bride Quote-Along at Seattle Center's Movies at the Mural. Starts at 9 pm.
