THANK YOU to all of the fabulous parents, teachers, and community members who are consistently meeting, planning and working together to grow James Baldwin Elementary and continue the great work to support and enrich the experiences of our students and school community.
Initiative: Funding Full-Time Art Instruction
Why and How:
Due to slightly reduced 2022-23 student enrollment, Northgate Elementary fell beneath the threshold for full-time art instruction. Per Seattle Schools rules, the program would become a half-time program 2022-23.
But our community believes the arts are an important part of a child’s learning experience. That’s why James Baldwin Elementary PTO, formerly Friends of Northgate (FoN) funded the second half of the art program, to make sure our K-5 students can attend art class regularly throughout the school year.
