We had a great time with Diana. She really bonded with Alex and Aiden, especially over card and board games. The kids got to practice their Spanish over games of Stratego, Exploding Kitten, and Battleship. She educated us all on the Columbian culture and way of life. She and Julian even made us a Columbian dish with plantains! It was also worthwhile to share with her new experiences like snow skiing, pumpkin picking and Game of Thrones! It was certainly a mutually beneficial experience and we feel fortunate we were able to do this. Attached is a picture of our hiking trip to see a waterfall!
Thanks to generous contributions from our community, over the past year we’ve been able to do the following as part of the WITS (Writers in the School) program:
Charlotte Cassady, Esq. will will speak on the rights of twice-exceptional children to receive support services for their disabilities as well as access to advance learning opportunities.
When: Monday, April 17 from 7-9pm
Where: Thurgood Marshall Elementary Library, 2401 S Irving St, Seattle, WA 98144
She will provide insight into the districts' legal obligations, interpretation of the law as it relates to 2e students (including the recent Supreme Court decision), and legal resources for parents. Ms. Cassady brings to this conversation many years of experience as an advocate and successful litigator on behalf of families and youth. Please join us--and feel free to share with others.
The 2e Seattle Parent Support Group leaders are Laurie Clark Klavins and Kathleen Allen. You can also email the group.

Our school district values the health of our students. We follow state laws to ensure students are up-to-date with required vaccines, so they are protected from diseases and come ready to learn. We are updating the way we keep track of vaccination records. We are now using an online immunization system called the School Module, which is created by the Washington State Department of Health. This system allows us to view your child’s immunization record quickly and efficiently and determine if your child has all the vaccines required for school.
If your child was born and vaccinated in Washington, your child’s records are already in the state system, which is one of the reasons for the recordkeeping change. You can access these records at any time by registering for MyIR.
These are some of the benefits of changing our practice:
As we move to this new recordkeeping system, Alison Inkley, the school nurse, may ask you for additional information about your child’s immunization dates. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email Alison.
