Seattle Schools This Week

Monday, November 12th
SPS closed to honor our veterans, both past and present.   I want to thank my father, Sam, and his brothers, Jack, Pat and Bill, all who served in WWII.  I want to thank my mother's cousin, Charles Oles, who served in WWII and died in the Bataan death march.  I would like to thank Harry M. Ravenna, the soldier in Vietnam whose name I carried on a metal bracelet on my wrist in junior high.  I found out decades later that he was killed in action.  Thank you to all who served and are serving.

An "Encore" Presentation of the State of the District Address by the Superintendent from 6:30-7:00 p.m. at JSCEE.  I heard the original and it was a lot longer than a half-hour so it is also an abbreviated presentation.  ALL the public is invited to this one.
