A proposal on Lafayette / Genessee Hill boundaries is being presented at the board meeting tonight. Existing students are grandfathered and it slowly decreases the enrollment at Genessee Hill while increasing enrollment at Lafayette at a steady pace of about 40 students per year. Read more about this proposal in the PDF from the Seattle Schools website.
Come out and enjoy a night of healthy fun! Our Family Fitness Night will give your whole family a chance to play together while learning about keeping active and making healthy choices every day. There will be many areas in the school to explore and be active. Some activities include relay races, yoga, jump rope with coach Renee, night run/walk, making healthy snacks in the indoor garden and much more! Reach out to Ms. Banner to find out how you can get involved to help out.
For those parents interested in hearing about the boundary draft proposals by the district, you will have multiple opportunities to listen and ask questions.
