The New Start High School Summer Garden Program wrapped up Thursday with an open house. Thanks to Gill Loring for the photos! Highline Schools Superintendent Dr. Susan Enfield visited to check out the gardens. They grew many things, from flowers …
… to lettuce …
… to pumpkins!
Art too, as shown by this student:
First day of school is September 4th.
Last week World Vision teamed up with the Westwood Village Target to help out some local teachers and families. Everyone was given a $100 gift card then let loose in the store; families bought school clothes and teachers stocked up on school supplies. Considering that teachers spend on average $500 of their own money on school supplies each year, this was a much appreciated big deal.
Today’s the day for a big fundraiser for White Center’s New Start High School. As Paul Fischburg put it in a letter we published in its entirety earlier this month:
On Thursday 1/29, all day, when you buy anything at the Barnes and Noble at Westwood Village shopping center and show them the attached flyer, a portion of the sales will be donated to New Start for the library. Better yet, books on New Start’s wishlist will be on display and you can buy one directly for the library. Even better still, come on down between 6:30 and 8:00 pm, and view student art work, hear readings of student writings and enter a drawing to win an ice cream party at White Center’s own Full Tilt Ice Cream!
You can download and print the flyer, which has the voucher number, here.
