The following is a press release from the Tukwila School District.

For about two hours this weekend representatives from Tukwila School District will be joined by Tukwila Mayor Allen Ekberg, handing out information about Tukwila Schools to residents and businesses near International Boulevard.

On Saturday, June 2 teachers, administrators and staff will answer questions and help with an array of school services like:

  • Information pertaining to enrollment for the upcoming school year
  • Cultural and bilingual services
  • Screenings
  • Breakfast and other meal services
  • Before and after school programs
  • Curriculum options like STEAM and Technical Education
  • College Bound scholarship assistance

The campaign launched earlier this year aims to get parents and future students informed about Tukwila Schools and excited about starting school next year.

Although the school year isn’t over quite yet, it’s never too early to start thinking about a child’s upcoming education goals. One of the main focuses at Tukwila School District is preparing families for the future in every way.

A child learns better when their parent or guardian is also focused on the overall success of the whole child. Tukwila Schools helps facilitate that by having a variety of resources available to the community in as many ways as possible. That is where Boots on the Ground comes in.

“Our emphasis has always been on parent involvement,” said Rhonda Lee, Communications Officer for Tukwila School District. “We want to help by improving communication between the schools and families. We strive to provide unique outreach within the District. We make ourselves available in hopes of moving our Tukwila families’ futures in the right direction.”

The next Boots on the Ground is scheduled to take place next weekend.
