News From the District

From the School Beat newsletter:

Bilingual Department to host three May meetings on audit progress
Seattle Public School's Bilingual Education department will host three community meetings in May to share the progress in addressing the bilingual audit received in August 2008 and to support families by sharing reading strategies with their children. At each meeting, families will receive folktale stories in several different languages to take home with them. The three meetings will be held at the locations listed below. For more information, contact Veronica Maria Gallardo, Bilingual Education Program Manager, at vmgallardo@seattleschools.org

Also, I note that Broadway Bound (a community musical theater group that has been working in the Rainier Valley) is putting on "Cats" at RBHS. Here's info:

What is interesting is that the Roosevelt High School Drama department also selected Cats as its musical this year and their production goes on the following week. That would be an interesting contrast to see both musicals.
