Welcome to the new generation of leaders!

South End Stories: Healing through History and Creativity is a new program at Orca K-8 school that celebrates the arts and the importance of playful learning, and embraces our incredible community of Orca scholars, staff, families, and neighbors! We received a $300,000 grant from the King County-wide Best Starts for Kids initiative to improve trauma-informed practices in public schools, and we’re using those funds to encourage our community to share their stories through film, dance, writing, and performance. We need your participation to build an authentic foundation of youth and community leadership! Only then can we achieve our goal of building a supportive school community that strengthens young scholars’ sense of identity and belonging. With any questions, please get in touch with Project Manager Naomi True at naomi.southendstories@gmail.com, (206)325-7626, or Program Director Donte Felder at dmfelder@seattleschools.org. In solidarity!

This website is for scholars, created by scholars! Learn more about the website designers Nuurdiin Hassan, Musa Fofana, and Claudio Herrera Acosta.
