    West Seattle Elementary Family Dinner

    On December 18, 2018, over 100 people attended a family dinner hosted by West Seattle Elementary, Neighborhood House, and Seattle Housing Authority (SHA).

    The school’s partnership with SHA and Neighborhood House created new opportunities to listen, learn, and collaborate with families around the educational success of children. By going to where the majority of their families live in the High Point community and providing a nutritious and delicious meal, childcare, and language interpretation, West Seattle Elementary is able to engage with families who they may not typically hear from.

    The event was an opportunity to showcase student talent and the ideas and contributions of the new student leadership group. In addition, families had an opportunity to get to know their children’s educators, the type of specialized support the school provides, and get their questions answered.

    When the school and their surrounding community comes together, children feel the support of an entire neighborhood that cares for them and encourages their educational success.
