Items of Note

A couple quick items to put on your radar:

There is a kindergarten fair tonight at the Ballard Community Center from 6:30-8:30 pm. 

I am only noting this because there is no announcement on the district's homepage nor is it on the district's calendar.  I only learned of it from Twitter.  It is at the Enrollment page.

Advance notice for another enrollment event, this one specific to Hazel Wolf K-8:

Hazel Wolf K-8 School (11530 12th Ave NE) is hosting an information night for ELL families on February 9, from 6 - 8 pm. Amharic, Arabic, Somali, Spanish, and Tigrinya interpreters and Admissions staff will be present to register new students for the 2017-18 school year.

The last notice is about the Seattle Art Museum.  They are having a FREE weekend, starting this Friday and lasting thru Sunday.   You do need to have a ticket for this event.

If you go on Saturday or Sunday, you also get to see the new Jacob Lawrence exhibit.  

Over these three days, all permanent collection galleries will be free. Starting Saturday, January 21, visitors will also be able to see the new special exhibition Jacob Lawrence: The Migration Series. Acclaimed as Lawrence’s masterwork, this epic series comprises 60 tempera paintings and chronicles in words and pictures the mass exodus of African Americans from the rural South to the industrial North in the decades after the First World War. The SAM exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see the entire series which has not been shown on the West Coast in two decades.
