    SPS working with partners this summer!

    This past weekend Seattle Public Schools (SPS) teamed-up with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission and more than a dozen local churches to spruce-up the insides and outsides of several schools across the district. 

    The work was part of the City Serve Project. Hundreds of volunteers, along with SPS staff and Superintendent Nyland, did everything from clearing weeds from sidewalks, mulching gardens, and cutting back over growth, to painting walls, cleaning desks, and creating murals for school playgrounds.

    The summer work project reflects the district’s dedication to building strong, positive partnerships to create the best educational experience and eliminate opportunity gaps for all students.

    Schools that took part included Chief Sealth High, Madison Middle, Sanislo, Highland Park, Roxhill, B.F. Day, Daniel Bagley, and Northgate Elementary Schools.

    Here is more information on the district’s strategy to eliminate opportunity gaps.
