This is a critical year for a large demonstration at our Capitol Building! We need to deliver the message loud and clear that our children deserve a fully funded education system to prepare them for the future. Please join West Seattle families and schools across the State on the steps of Olympia to rally for K-12 Education.
Register here – then RSVP to coordinate group transportation or see who else is going! Parents are encouraged to bring students to this approved school trip as it is important for school aged children to experience civic engagement. Questions can be sent to Angela Cough and Emily Giaquinta -firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please RSVP HERE
