2016-2017 BELL TIME PROPOSAL: COMMUNITY FEEDBACK DUE NOW
The Bell Times Task Force is reviewing public input on whether to either keep the bell time schedule the same, reshuffle elementary, middle & high school bell times, or extend the high school day by adding an optional seventh hour beginning with the 2016-2017 school year.  The Neighbor to Neighbor program was created to facilitate community engagement and is being led by parents from our schools. The feedback gathered from every family in these discussions will play an important role in the District’s recommendations and decision making processes on Bell Time changes moving forward. Three (3) Options are being reviewed and only one will be recommended for the Superintendent for implementation.

Please join Emily Giaquinta & Genevieve Carlson on Tuesday, April 7 from 6:30-7:30PM at Schmitz Park Elementary (5000 Spokane Street) for a brief presentation, Q&A session and to complete the family survey. You can also view information and submit the survey online at neighbortoneighbor.www.seattleschools.org.  Contact: Emily Giaquinta - legislative@schmitzparkpta.org.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC - CONCERT WED. MAY 20TH

Greetings from Mr. Seeberger, Instrumental Music Teacher!  It’s spring time, so that means we’re approaching our big evening Spring Concert, which is going to be Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at 7:00PM, in the Madison Middle School Gym.  This year we will be combining with Lafayette Elementary to form a large band and orchestra.  All 4th and 5th grade instrumental music students are expected to attend this concert, and the program will feature the combined band, advanced band, beginning and advanced strings, as well as some small group features. 

I would also like to ask parents/students to please help with the set up for the concert, as there will be approximately 160-170 students performing.  Set up will begin at 5:00PM on May 20 in the Madison gym.  It’s going to be a great concert!
