From the Principal

As Americans, the violent assault on our nation’s capitol last week came as quite a gut-wrenching jolt.  It left us with many emotions: outrage, deep sadness, disbelief (How could this happen in the US?)—and more.

What we witnessed is another instance of rage and fear that has recently been exhibited in our country.

I agree with Superintendent Juneau, who wrote: “I am grateful to be a part of a district that is focused on dismantling racism.”  I am quite grateful to live in the “Seattle bubble” where most citizens and public servants model civility. I am very grateful to work with students as they are our hope for the future.  I have to believe better days are coming.

In October 2020, the Coe PTA Diversity, Racial Equity and Inclusion Committee surveyed Coe families about their experiences and wishes for creating a more inclusive and anti-racist culture at our school. The survey was open for two weeks and received a total of 105 responses. Read the full summary of results here.

We are thankful to all Coe families for participating and providing thoughtful insight and feedback. The PTA’s DREI Committee and the Coe Racial Equity Teacher group are already actively working together to prioritize activities for the 2020-21 school year, informed by the survey data. Our real work begins now.

Please join us Tuesday January 12, 2021 at 7pm and share your ideas and opportunities for the DREI committee. Zoom meeting details available here.

Coe Community Makes Food Drive a Success

Today, the dedicated Coe Cares team packed and delivered 893lbs of food and hygiene items, plus a $1,000 donation, to the Ballard Food Bank!

Organizing and rallying  donations in support of Ballard Food Bank – during the Covid pandemic – is no small task.   But thanks to some incredible parent volunteers, Colby Wallace (lead for the PTA’s Coe Cares committee) and Nicole Mirchandani, plus the amazing support of our Coe community who answered the call, the Coe Cares Food Drive was a success!

Thank you so much to all who participated and made a difference.  Read on to view more pictures from today’s drop off…
