After-School Classes: Winter/Spring Registration is Open!

Registration for after-school classes is open! Both the winter (Jan/Feb) and spring (Mar/Apr) sessions are open for registration. There is an incredible lineup of classes. Happy registering! 

To register online, go to the Seattle Parks and Recreation website (SPARC) website.
  1. Log in using your Login ID and PIN (Note: if you have not already done so, you must first register through SPARC to receive a Login ID and PIN--do this for each child.)
  2. Go to the Programs tab.
  3. Click the Advanced Search bar to open the Advanced Search menu.
  4. In the Keyword(s) field, type "Bagley" and hit Enter. SPARC will display an After School Enrichment page.
  5. Click the Show Courses button. 
  6. Scroll down to find the winter and spring classes.
All families (including those who register online) must submit two forms in person at the Green Lake Community Center before classes start, preferably earlier. If you already submitted them in the fall, you do not need to submit them again.
  1. Participant Information and Authorization form (also called E-13)
  2. Medical History and Authorization Information
These forms can be found at the back of the brochure, which we hope to have available this week, or you can pick them up at the community center. Seattle Parks and Recreation staff will check the forms to make sure they are filled out correctly and to see if children have any health issues they need to be aware of. The Green Lake Community Center is open Mon-Fri 1-9pm and Sat. 9-5pm

For more information, visit the After School Enrichment Program page.

The Jogathon is next Friday!

Friday, October 2, 10:30 - 11:20 a.m.
Lower Woodland Track, 5575 West Green Lake Way N.

Please submit the permission form by Tuesday 9/29! Otherwise, your child will not be able to participate.

It's a fun event for the kids, not to mention they raise a lot of much-needed funding for our school. Last year they raised $27,000! The funds go to the PTA to supplement our kids' education at Bagley, including health and fitness, art, music, the library, classroom tutors, scholarships, and more.

Kids ask their friends and family to pledge a dollar amount per lap (or a flat amount). Then they run their hearts out. The students will be transported by buses, but parents are encouraged to cheer the kids on. It's a blast to watch how hard the kids run!

If you would like to volunteer for the event, please contact Diedra Ward.

Walking School Bus

What is a Walking School Bus?

Every Friday your child can join other Bagley friends to walk to school together! Students are picked up by volunteer leaders at a Walking Bus Stop along a set route, and delivered safely to the playground with time to play before the first bell. Walking School Buses are a great way to promote community, safety, fitness, and being green.

Check out the Walking School Bus map showing the two "buses."  One from the northeast leaves at 9:05 a.m. from 88th and Burke and one from the southwest leaves at 8:45 a.m. from 70th and Dayton. The map shows the specific route.

No need to email or sign up in advance. Just be somewhere along the route at the appropriate time and join in!

Bagley has a strong community of walkers (on buses and on their own). Let's grow our ranks!

If these routes aren't in your neighborhood and you're interested in starting an additional route, please email Brooke (brookedoyle at yahoo), and let her know where you are and if you have neighbors who might want to be part of a regular route. Contact Brooke with any questions.
