Rite of Passage Journey - Summer Opportunity
Looking for summer enrichment opportunities that go beyond a typical summer camp? Rite of Passage Journeys is not your typical summer camp. Not even close! These summer youth programs, for ages 8 – 18, help young people navigate the journey from childhood to adulthood in a supported, mentored way. Led by a team of experienced wilderness mentors, participants will safely experience the physical challenges of demanding mountain backpacking as well as the interpersonal themes of self-reliance, responsibility to self and others, group dynamics and conflict resolution. Along with the demands of physical exertion, come nighttime campfires, story-telling, stargazing and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest wilderness and beaches. For a flyer...

West Seattle Cup
I am a Kindergarten teacher at Alki Elementary. I am recruiting a planning committee to help organize an event next June for all students K-12 living in West Seattle and would love to have a representative from each West Seattle school on the committee. Please read below for more information.
West Seattle Cup 2014: “WE’RE ALL ON THE SAME TEAM!”
In June 2014, as Brazil hosts the world’s most important competition, the FIFA World Cup, our neighborhood will host the future’s most important co-opetition: the West Seattle Cup. The West Seattle Cup will bring together teams of West Seattle children and parents for a unique and fun soccer tournament that promotes intergenerational learning, identity exploration, and cross-cultural cooperation.
Every child living in West Seattle, ages 5-18, along with his or her parent/guardian, is invited to participate in the Cup by joining a team representing a country with which they choose to identify. Through various playing and learning activities leading up to and during the tournament, our neighborhood will engage in the fun and dynamic process of community-building. Playing together, the diverse community of West Seattle will strengthen and deepen its connectedness and realize the message of the tournament: "we’re all on the same team."
If you are interested in applying to join the planning committee or volunteering for this event, please email Terry Kegel at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, Terry Kegel, Kindergarten Teacher Alki
