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:

Food Drive is a Success!

Thanks to the generous donations from Coe families, we were able to provide 29 boxes (approximately 435 pounds!) of food to the Ballard Food Bank.  A special thank you to all those who donated food, time, extra garage space, and cars to help get all the food to the bank. Way to go, Coe Cougars!

Fall Fund Drive: Thank You!

This is the first year that the Coe PTA has dedicated a fundraising campaign entirely in support of others in our local school community. Your response has been incredible, and, as a group, the Coe PTA and Fall Fund Drive Team is grateful!

Thank you Coe for embracing this year’s shift in direction, and thank you to the families who raised a total of $33,080 in donations and corporate match pledgesThese donations will be shared between Friends of Roxhill Elementary and SE Seattle Schools Fundraising Alliance in effort to help bridge the PTA fundraising equity gap within the Seattle Public Schools district.
