Advocacy Week: Seattle Special Education PTSA

PSTA advocacy

State lawmakers are working today on policies and law changes that could help or harm how public schools work with students with disabilities. Sharing your voice and your story matters when it comes to state laws. Seattle Special Education PTSA invites you to a series of upcoming events that will help you develop strategies for engaging with your legislators to bring about positive change.

Thanksgiving & Native American Heritage Day: Family Learning Conversations

Queen Anne is on the traditional land of the Seattle’s First People, the Duwamish People, past and present.

For more information on the Since Time Immemorial curriculum, visit https://www.k12.wa.us/

Thanksgiving (Nov 25) and Native American Heritage Day (Nov 26) next week present a meaningful opportunity to learn about connections between food and culture for our state’s Native Nations.

In 2015, the Legislature passed Senate Bill 5433 requiring the Since Time Immemorial: Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State (STI) or other tribally-developed curriculum be taught in all schools.  The use of the Since Time Immemorial curriculum has been endorsed by all 29 federally recognized tribes.

The district webpage has information on how to explore additional readings, discussion guides, activities, and other resources like beautiful Seasonal Rounds that can be printed as placemats for your family’s holiday meal.

Specific STI readings for each grade cluster is below, along with supporting learning resources:
