SPU - East Montlake Pump Station and Force Main UpgradeIn some areas of the City of Seattle, sewage and stormwater runoff are collected in the same pipes, known as combined sewers. During storm events, sometimes the flow in these pipes exceeds the sewer system capacity. When this occurs, the system overflows at an outfall structure designed for this purpose. To comply with State and Federal requirements, SPU must limit the number of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) at each of these outfalls to an average of no more than one per year based on a 20-year moving average. Combined sewer Basin 20 in the Montlake area currently exceeds this performance standard, averaging 2.4 CSOs per year. The goal of this project is to reduce the frequency of Basin 20 CSOs.

Helping Homeless Animals

JUNE 23, 2019 | WEBSITE SUBMITTED

Dear Neighbors: 

I’m having a bat mitzvah in August and it is customary to do a service project for a bat mitzvah. For my project, I decided to make bags with supplies for taking care of your dog when you’re homeless. I’m sewing drawstring backpacks and filling them with treats, a dog bowl, a leash, and other useful stuff. I’m writing to ask the neighborhood for donations of supplies.

Useful supplies are: collapsible dog bowls, treat samples, dog-friendly soap, dog toothbrushes/soft toothbrushes, leashes, bulky yarn, and sturdy cloth bigger than 16˝ by 18˝ as well as small shampoo bottles and toothpaste (for people). Also, if anyone would like to help out with sewing bags, here’s a link to the pattern

Please contact me for the location where you can drop off any supplies or bags, needed by July 4th.

Thank you all for your help, Elena.

Seattle School for Boys to Open in the Fall

JUNE 18, 2019 | WEBSITE SUBMITTED

 

A new all-boys middle school is opening in Madison Valley! 

Seattle School for Boys will rent classroom space in the Ebenezer A.M.E. Zion Church on 23rd Ave, just south of Madison. The mission of the school is to encourage and inspire boys to become collaborative learners, creative thinkers, and compassionate leaders who genuinely care about our diverse global community.

Seattle School for Boys recently hired Nick Creach as the school’s first Head of School, effective August 1, 2019. Creach will join founding educator Jerome Hunter as the school plans to welcome its inaugural class in September 2019. 

Creach joins Seattle School for Boys after serving as the Head of Middle School at Seattle Academy. Creach previously served as Dean of Student Life and Middle School Athletics at University Prep, and as a teacher at Cardigan Mountain School, a New Hampshire boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 9.

Hunter, a long-time public school teacher, was at Meany Middle School in the first year of its re-opening in 2017. Hunter is also a former Martinez Fellow and current MBK Alliance mentor. 

“I’ve had firsthand experience seeing how transformative middle school education can impact young people for life,” said Creach. “Boys thrive when they have authentic, hands-on educational experience that includes helping them solve real-world problems.”

Seattle School for Boys will begin with grades 6 and 7 for the 2019-2020 academic year, adding grade 8 in the following year. Seattle School for Boys’ program is based on the pillars of neural education, equitable and experiential learning, and engagement with the community. 

The founding team has extensive leadership and teaching experience at the middle school level, along with a firm belief in the depth of compassion and capability of adolescent boys. Seattle School for Boys is poised to grow into a long-standing community treasure.
