Ultimate frisbee players and coaches wanted


Looking for girls, particularly 4th grade girls, to join the Cascadia spring mixed (co-ed) ultimate (frisbee) team!! Our first practice will be February 15th and we desperately need more gals to fill out a 3rd team. Ultimate is super easy to learn and no prior experience required. If your daughter is interested, go to and sign her up today!!

Want to play on a Cascadia Dragons ultimate team, or perhaps help coach a team? Cascadia parents are organizing teams to play in the 2018 DiscNW Spring Elementary Mixed (co-ed) Ultimate Frisbee league. Practice will be once a week starting the week of February 12th. Games will be on the weekend, likely Saturdays, starting on or after March 10th. Post-season play will take place the weekends of May 5th and May 12th. Players must be in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade to participate. Girls and boys are welcome as we need roughly equal numbers for each co-ed team.

If your 3rd, 4th or 5th grade student is interested in playing ultimate, please fill out this survey. Teams play with 5 players on the field, so team space is limited. Make sure you sign up your player as soon as possible before the teams fill up!

Don’t worry if your child has never played sports or ultimate. Ultimate is an easy sport to learn as a new player.  Ultimate focuses on Spirit of the Game and good sportsmanship.  In ultimate, players call their own fouls and thus learn valuable conflict resolution skills.

We anticipate the cost per student (including t-shirt, league sign up and equipment costs) to be approximately $80, but we will provide precise cost information when teams have been set. Scholarships are available, so please don’t hesitate to request one from Cathy Jeannotte (cathyjea at If you would like to coach or help coach a team, please contact John Withey (motmots at General questions, feel free to email Sarah Fuelling (sarahfu at

Lighting Variance Committee

SEATTLE (November 8, 2017) – Here’s your chance to serve on an advisory committee that will recommend whether to grant a zoning modification requested for Robert Eagle Staff Middle School located at 1330 N. 90th Street. Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking community members to serve on this committee.

The Seattle School District is requesting a modification (known as a “departure”) from select City zoning regulations to reduce setbacks for field lighting at the school.

The committee will convene up to three public meetings at Robert Eagle Staff Middle School (1330 N 90th St.) over a three-month period. The committee will receive briefings from the School District, and gather and evaluate public comment on the departure request. Following these meetings, the committee will make a recommendation to the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections (SDCI) to either grant or deny the requested modification. The committee may also recommend relevant conditions to be applied to granting the change to minimize its impacts on the surrounding neighborhood. SDCI will make the final decision.

Those who can apply to the committee are neighbors who live or own a business within 600’ of Robert Eagle Staff Middle School, residents in the surrounding neighborhood, representatives of city-wide education issues, PTO members and parents of the school. Other committee members will include a representative from the School District and City of Seattle.

To apply, please send a letter of interest by either e-mail or regular mail to:

The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in its boards and committees; women, young adults, senior citizens, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, persons of color, and immigrants are highly encouraged to apply.

The Major Institutions and Schools Program provides a way for neighbors of Seattle’s hospitals, universities, and colleges to be directly involved in the development plans for those institutions to ensure neighborhood concerns are considered when those plans are made. It is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
