Incoming Mount Si High School freshmen are invited to attend “The Insiders,” a free four-day course designed to give students helpful information and skills they need to be successful at Mount Si High School. The course is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. August 15, 16 and 19 at various locations on the main campus of Mount Si. On August 20, students will take a full-day field trip to visit several post high school education options. Lunch and materials will be provided. Also planned are exclusive tours of both the main and freshman campuses. Students will learn about the culture of Mount Si and the role P.R.I.D.E. plays in ensuring success in high school and beyond. They will get the opportunity to not only connect with their school, but with their community as well. Through engaging activities, open discussion, and community service, students will explore what it means to be a Mount Si Wildcat and a citizen. “Insiders” is meant to give each student the skills and confidence to overcome any obstacles they might face during this major transition and realize their full potential. To learn more, contact Mount Si Language Arts teacher Brian McCormick at mccormickb@svsd410.org.

‘All she had was a backpack’: YMCA holding backpack, school supply drive The YMCAs on the Eastside will host a backpack and school supply drive for local youth in need through August 23. The drive is in memory of Nicole Lehtinen, a foster youth whose life was cut short in an auto accident at the age of 16. After her father died, 6 year old Nicole became a foster child when her mother could no longer care for her. As she entered foster care, all she had from home was her backpack. According to Treehouse, a Seattle resource that provides essentials well as academic support for foster youth, there are between 1,300 and 1,500 children in foster care on any given day in King County. Community members can support the drive by donating new backpacks and school supplies to Eastside YMCA’s through Friday, Aug. 23, at the Snoqualmie Y as well as the Coal Creek, Bellevue, Sammamish and Lake Heights locations.
