Saturday School Invitation

Hello Rainier Beach Friends and Family!

Saturday School is an opportunity for all students to come and work on any late or missing work. If your student’s grades aren’t where you want them to be please encourage him or her to stop by and get caught up. We provide a quiet space to work and have tutors as well as RBHS staff available to help your child with any questions they may have. If your child is planning to come and needs specific help on a specific assignment, have them check with their teacher to see if he or she is attending. Next Saturday School date November 1st. Thanks!

Sierra Club

Last Saturday was the Rainier Beach Sierra Club’s first outing.   We went kayaking on Lake Washington and it was an amazing day.  We explored Gas Works Park and had a BBQ.  The RB Sierra Club teaches our powerful young people to look at their world in a different way.  It also helps to break down walls in our young people’s minds of what they can and can’t do.  Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Christopulos, teacher/sponsors have found that some of the most important learning of the year happens on these Saturdays.
