    Thanks to Leschi Elementary librarian, Kevin McNew for applying to several local grants to help update texts in the school library, Leschi has been the recipient of two grants this month.

    The money will help the school fill the shelves with texts that better reflect the schools and city communities and finding more accurate and representative history and social studies books. Seattle Foundation awarded the library with a $10,000 grant and Safeway/Albertsons along with Doug Baldwin from the Seattle Seahawks gave $5,000.

    Doug Baldwin came to present the check in person and then High Fived all of the Leschi students and well as running a drill with many of them.
