Shape our children’s play space! We have an opportunity to activate our playfield along Meeker Street. The city is reimagining Meeker Street as a safe place to walk and ride bikes, and a welcoming spot for neighbors called “Meet Me on Meeker”. The area along the chainlink fence is not a very friendly place for students so we need your ideas on how to improve it through the Meeker Street design. Join parents and neighbors at two workshops in March to share your thoughts! Topics we’ll explore are: • What would make Meeker Street and Kent Elementary work together as a healthy, safe, and welcoming place for everyone? • How can Meeker Street bike and walking paths tie into the school’s space? Your commitment to two evening workshop is requested, but we’ll make it easy for you by providing fun activities for the whole family, and free dinner! So don’t worry, we’ve got childcare, food, and interpretation handled. March 6th and March 27th at 5:30PM
Information about the new early release Wednesdays beginning September 6, 2017.
