Families and staff invited to conversational meeting regarding Eckstein building condition: Seattle Public Schools is inviting Eckstein Middle School’s families and staff to attend a conversational meeting regarding the school’s building condition on Tuesday, September 23 from 6:00- 7:00 p.m. in the Eckstein auditorium. Attendees will hear about work that has been done in the past, as well as this summer and what is scheduled for the summer of 2015. Attendees will be able ask questions and provide input and feedback to the District’s Capital Projects and Planning staff.
Non-professional attire that does not meet Eckstein’s student dress code includes:
- W.E.B. ("Where Everyone Belongs") Mon 8/25, 8 am - 12 pm: Teams of 6th grade students are matched with 8th grade mentors and they spend the morning getting to know one another, doing team-building activities, taking a "behind the scenes" tour of the school from a student's perspective and playing games. Participating in the W.E.B. day really boosts the incoming students' confidence and creates a sense of community, and they will continue to meet with their W.E.B. leaders throughout the year for ongoing support.
- Stepping Up to Success Day Wed 9/3, 7:50 am - 2:20 pm: This day is all about making 6th graders feel comfortable at Eckstein. Only 6th graders are in school for the day, and they find their classes, meet their teachers, open their lockers (lots of times!), eat lunch in the cafeteria and get to experience a "practice" school day before the first day of classes on Thursday 9/4.
