FREE Healthy Home Assessments from American Lung Association

Is the air you’re breathing safe? Indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Learn how to identify and fix common things in your home that contribute to poor indoor air quality through a free visit from the American Lung Association. While there is no testing or cleaning, they are able to give you recommendations on what you can do to maintain a healthy home environment. For households who have a child with asthma, you may be eligible to receive either a vacuum, dehumidifier, or air purifier to further improve the air quality in your home. For more information contact AmeriCorps member Xamantha Curameng.

Screening of Angst

Angst is an independent documentary film about kids dealing with anxiety. In the film, they interview kids who struggle with anxiety and their families. They also talk about some possible root causes of anxiety, and how it affects the brain. The Whitman PTSA cordially invites our school community to a screening of “Angst”

Location: Whitman Middle School’s auditorium
Date: January 23rd
Time: 7:00 PM (doors will open at 6:40 PM) Register for tickets here!
Although the film is appropriate for ages 11+, we ask that only adults attend. The event is free, however, a ticket is required for entry. Please use the ticket registration link provided to secure your entry into the screening. The PTSA will be accepting donations at the event to offset the cost of the movie. We plan to have an informal discussion after the screening.

Greetings all,

It’s time to sign-up for boy’s lacrosse! Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in America, and Seattle. Lax is great at a young age. We work on hand eye coordination and we do lots of running (we start practice with a 400m) and strength building, we do push-ups every day.

Sign-up is now open for 2019 Spring lax for 3rd grade up to 8th grade. We put the 3rd and 4th graders together on one team, then have another team of 5th and 6th boys. Finally we put 7th and 8th graders together too. FYI we do encourage older boys to start even in 7th or 8th grade too so if you have older brothers who are tired of soccer/baseball it’s never too late to try something new!

Practices start in February and are twice a week at Loyal Heights Playfield or Whitman Middle School. Games begin in March on Saturdays. Kindergarten – 2nd graders can register for Props Academy which starts in April. The Academy runs weekly clinics on Sundays to introduce kids to the game of lacrosse. For more information, please visit the club page – http://www.propslacrosse.org/

If you have any questions about lacrosse please feel free to reach out to me directly or submit an inquiry via our website.
Cheers!
Marcos Dachary (coach and father of a 4th grader at Greenwood Elementary)
