Northshore School District gears up for 2019-20 school year

  • Written by Bob Kirkpatrick

BOTHELL — More than 2,500 volunteers are expected to be on hand to help 26 Northshore schools prepare for the upcoming school year.

On Sunday, Aug. 25, volunteers will be weeding, mulching, painting and setting up classrooms — all part of the annual Community Serve Day, which serves both Northshore and Lake Washington school districts. Northshore’s Community Serve Day is made possible though the strong partnership and support of the Northshore Community Church and several PTAs across the District.

Every task from decorating bulletin boards, wiping down desks and chairs, organizing library books to the larger outside projects will contribute to a successful year for students, teachers and school administrators.

In the weeks leading up to Community Serve Day, Northshore’s grounds crew distributed mulch, play chip and gravel to each school site. Following Community Serve Day, the grounds crew will remove all garden debris piled up by volunteers. 

Last year, the District had more than 2,200 volunteers, which included Northshore families, church members and other community members. This year's Community Serve Day already has many volunteers signed up, however we are still in need of more than 800 volunteers. Volunteers are encouraged to visit to sign up for a nearby school.

Evergreen Family Theatre presents ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Evergreen Family Theatre is pleased to present the poignant and humorous adaptation of “Tuesdays with Morrie,” co-adapted by author Mitch Albom.

As a student at Brandeis University in the late 1970s, Albom was especially drawn to his sociology professor, Morris Schwartz. On graduation he vowed to keep in touch with him, which he failed to do until 1994, when he saw a segment about Schwartz on the TV program Nightline, and learned that he had just been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease. The story chronicles 14 Tuesdays spent getting reacquainted with his beloved sociology professor Morrie Schwartz, who was succumbing to ALS, a neurological illness that steadily leaves “a man frozen inside his own flesh.”

Gold Creek Railroad delighted the crowds

Gold Creek Railroad

An authentic narrow-gauge railroad which circled the grounds provided entertainment for hundreds of children who thronged Gold Creek Park during its popular 1960s years. In the locomotive cab was William G. Tyrrell, pet food manufacturer, who created the park for family entertainment. The 74-acre site also had a log fort, pioneer grist mill, four swimming pools, picnic areas and an ice-skating dome. The Woodinville Heritage Society will highlight the park in its prime years during a program Saturday, May 17, at 10 a.m. The event will be at the Sammamish Valley Grange on 140th Avenue NE, just north of the Old Hollywood Schoolhouse. The PowerPoint program includes numerous rare photos and comments from former Park employees who will be present.
