The parks dept. also run many sports camps over the summer. They are free, and designed for everyone to participate. The camps happen all across the city. Check the parks and rec website. Last year they had boating at Greenlake, volleyball, tennis, gymnastics, swimming and more!

Chinese, Korean, Arabic and Farsi. Of the four, I believe that only one is taught in middle school. What kind of vertical integration is this supposed to be? Do we even want vertical integration?
