Cleveland needs community volunteers—today

Pat Murakami of the Cleveland High School PTSA sent this late appeal to the community, seeking volunteers at the school for today:

There are MANY great things about Cleveland High School. Advanced planning isn’t one of them. A teacher approached me today, asking for parent volunteers for tomorrow [February 15]. Most of our parents have limited free time during the work day, so if community members would like to participate in the following, it would be a great opportunity to check out Cleveland from the inside. Folks will find out what a fine school Cleveland is, and what incredible students go there.

Kate Reedy, a Humanities teacher, needs volunteers February 15th as ‘Members of Congress.’ The students will be testifying before us at a Congressional Hearing. It will be fun and a great opportunity to see our students in action. You are welcome to participate in one or all of the following sessions. The Hearings will be held in Room 1207 of the Main Building.

  • 3/4 Period 9:20 – 10:45
  • 5/6 Period 12:00 – 1:25
  • 7/8 Period 1:30 – 2:50

Please park in the lot at the south end of the school (off 15th Avenue South) and enter the original Cleveland building (just north of the parking lot) on the side facing away from 15th. Sign in at the counter on the left hand side of the entrance area. Room 1207 is on the 2nd floor of this building.

Thank you!

Pat Murakami, 2011-12 PTSA President

Community invited to learn about new STEM program at Cleveland High School

SEATTLE – Seattle Public Schools is committed to providing an excellent education so all students graduate from high school ready for college, careers and life. To help meet this goal, a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program is being implemented beginning fall 2010 at Cleveland High School. Cleveland has been designated an option school – providing high school students from across Seattle access to this innovative program.

The community is invited to attend two events to learn more about STEM and its implementation.

A meeting will be held December 5 at Cleveland High School. Students, staff, and families of current and prospective students are welcome to attend. The meeting will include a presentation, opportunity to ask questions, and a small group discussion to include:

  • the vision for the STEM program at Cleveland;
  • the goals and benefits of STEM;
  • course offerings and program structure;
  • next steps for the STEM program and how to get involved; and
  • how to determine if STEM is a good option for your student.

Cleveland High School will also hold an Open House and Recruiting Fair on January 23, 2010, where staff can answer questions about the STEM program.

Dates, times, locations for the two events are listed below:
