Preschool Will Once Again be Offered at Daybreak Star

Daybreak Star

Daybreak star will once again be home to a preschool at the Native Cultural Center.

After 27 years, Daybreak Star and the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation lost their program in 2013. Since that loss, they have been trying to get a preschool back to the community of Magnolia to support Native American families.

The program will consist of about 40 children, all around four years old. Most likely, the classes will be held Monday – Thursday, for 6 and 1/2 hours a day. This model of classes was chosen in favor of a half-day preschool, because it makes life easier on parents that are working.The hope is that the preschool will be up and running by 2015.

The school is located at 3801 W. Government Way in Magnolia.

Congratulations on successfully bringing back a preschool to Daybreak Star!

Seattle Parks / King County Wastewater Treatment Division Educational Event 6/28

Light house

The Seattle Parks Department and the King County Wastewater Treatment Division are teaming up to host a “stewardship educational event” this Saturday, June 28th.

Magnolia residents and Discovery Park users are invited to meet at the Discovery Park Lighthouse roundabout anytime between 11:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. to learn about how our community can help preserve the beauty and safety of the beach area.

Tours of the beach will be available thanks to the Discovery Park Naturalists, and the event will  focus on issues like uncontrolled vehicle access, trespassing, prevention of fires, graffiti, crime, etc. as the summer months bring about the most traffic to Discovery Park and the beach area.

The beach area may be accessed via shuttle bus from the Visitor’s Center between 10:45 a.m. until 4:45 p.m.

According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, the month of May brought about 31 single family home transactions, at a median sales price of $738,000.
