Each October, millions of children, parents, teachers and community leaders across the globe walk to school to celebrate an International Walk to School Month. This year, White Center Heights Elementary will participate in the event for the first time. Walk to School in October is an energizing event, reminding parents and children alike of the simple joy of walking to school. It also serves as an opportunity to focus on the importance of physical activity, safety, air quality and walkable communities. Be on the lookout for walkers (morning and afternoon) and help ensure safe journeys for our kids and families by always observing speed limits near schools - and stopping to allow pedestrians to cross at corners and crosswalks.

Event: Walk to School with Dow Constantine, King County Executive

Date: Friday, October 29th 2010

Time: 8:20am Sharp

Location: Greenbridge Plaza

Hosted by the King County Food and Fitness Initiative in partnership with King County Housing Authority (KCHA) and Neighborhood House, Be Active Together

Contact Maggie Anderson 206-205-3186, Jennifer Calleja 206-461-4554 or Tracie 206-574-1167 with questions.

The CDA received this from an email over the weekend - check it out! It’s definitely soup weather (the event is in White Center, even though it says “West Seattle”).

The Great Soup Off of West Seattle
Saturday, November 6th at 5p
At Big Al Brewing
9832 14th Ave SW

Dearest friends and neighbors,

As the Pacific Northwest winter snuggles in for another season, what better way to celebrate than a Great Soup? Few things could accentuate the community-building powers of soup like some healthy competition between the neighborhoods of our favorite corner of Seattle.

The Greatest Soup Of West Seattle will not be awarded with cash, prizes, fame or hot chicks. The Greatest Soup of West Seattle will be awarded that distinction alone.

Please RSVP to Mikhaila.gonzales@gmail.com or 917-519-1442 by Monday, Nov 1st to contend and/or eat.

Friendly, but a competition nonetheless, some rules are in order:
1. Great Soups will be judged solely by flavor (5 of 10 points) and texture (5 of 10 points)
2. Celebrity Judges of West Seattle account for 50% of total scoring.
3. Guests account for 50% of the Final Soup Score, so make sure your guests like both you AND your soup.
4. Contenders may NOT judge the Great Soups.
5. Like any Great Soup, it may be delicious paired with all sorts of fixins, but your Great Soup must stand on its own.
6. Must be 16 and over to submit a score card. Sorry young foodies. You can still have some soup.
7. If you do not live in West Seattle, you may submit a Great Soup for the less distinguished title of Greatest Soup Outside of West Seattle.
8. Great Soups must be submitted with a comprehensive list of ingredients on one side of an index card, for the safety of our guests and judges.

Please bring your own serving stuff.

About the API Freedom School:

The Asian Pacific Islander Freedom School (APIFS) project is a coalition effort led by various Seattle-area based API organizations and activists who have come together as a steering committee to organize and implement the school in July 2011.

The APIFS is the first community-based APIA Freedom School in the nation. Inspired by the work of Tyree Scott Freedom School, a pioneer in developing youth community organizers with an anti-racism analysis, the APIFS will empower APIA youth ages 14-18 — with special outreach to recent immigrants, refugees and low-income students — through a curriculum focused on diverse APIA history, art, culture and critical contemporary social issues using a broad-based anti-oppression approach.

Set to launch in July 2011, the 5-day week-long APIA-FS will provide a safe, dynamic learning space for APIA youth to learn from local APIA community leaders. APIA-FS will build strong inter-community and -generational connections to grow the next generation of APIA community leaders, and expand the sustainability of larger social justice movement work.
