August 14th @ Golden Gardens Beach Park, exact time TBD

The Welcome (Back) BBQ is a dearly-loved Seattle School tradition hosted by Student Leadership. All students, spouses/partners, and families are invited! There will be hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs, and we ask that you bring a side dish or dessert to share. Feel free to bring blankets and lawn chairs, as well as a frisbee or football! You can bus to Golden Gardens, but the buses stop running at 9pm, so you may want to organize a carpool home. There is a good chance the weather will be beautiful and you’ll get to connect at one of Seattle’s best beaches! You won’t want to miss this!

A few more details about Golden Gardens if you’re unfamiliar with the area:

Golden Gardens is located northwest of Ballard at 8498 Seaview Place NW, 98117. As it is a happenin’ place to be, parking can be limited. We recommend you carpool if you can. There will be signs and balloons marking our location. You can’t miss us!

Also, if you do not have a car or bike, it can be difficult to get there. Bus Routes 45 and 17E will drop you near the top of the park and you can take a trail/stairs down to the beach (Google Maps is helpful if you’ve never taken this route before).

Helpful bus scheduling tools can be utilized through One Bus Away (app) or at
Make sure to put this in your calendar and watch for more information on The Seattle School Events Calendar and on the Cohort Facebook pages about RSVPing and carpooling options.
