Last week, SPS announced staff cuts at 25 elementary schools across the district, including Schmitz Park and 4 other West Seattle Schools. To organize a collective community response, 40 Seattle Public School Parent Leaders from Legislators to PTA Presidents held an emergency meeting on Sunday to accomplish one thing: develop a strategy to put a full stop to the current staff cuts.
Important action items this week:
- Two rallies have been organized at the John Stanford Center for Education Excellence on Tuesday, October 13 one at 11:00am and one at 4:00pm. Please attend the one most convenient for you. Use #kidsnotcuts in your signage and wear your Schmitz Park gear! Please follow links for more details: 11 a.m. event and 4 p.m. event.
- Print, sign and mail the attached letter to the School Board, then copy & paste it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Attend the Schmitz Park PTA Meeting on Thursday, October 15th at 6:30pm to hear updates and next steps to advocate for our kids and all students across Seattle.
