    Update on Edwin T. Pratt Center for Early Learning

    "Hello, my name is Sarah and as most of you know I have been working for the past year to name a school after Edwin T. Pratt.   Last month the district agreed to form a naming committee.  I was selected to be a member of the committee.  The committee is accepting name nominations through Friday March 30th.  If you would like to support naming the building the "Edwin T. Pratt Center for Early Learning" or have a different idea you can go to the link below to submit your entry.  Thanks for your support!"

    If you are wanting to know more about Edwin T. Pratt for your nomination, here is an example of a submitted nomination that has information that might be useful:

    Edwin T Pratt was the former Executive Director of the Urban Metropolitan League of Seattle, father, Civil Rights activist and Shoreline resident. He was a pioneer in growing the Seattle Urban League (now ULMS), was pivotal in implementing the Equal Opportunity Act in the Greater Seattle area, fought housing discrimination, segregation, employment bias, and police brutality. He intentionally moved to Shoreline with his family to highlight the segregation within housing communities. He was shot and killed in Shoreline, at his home near the Shoreline library. As a district, we have the opportunity honor his legacy by making the Early Learning Center a space where we signify & commemorate our commitment to erasing the opportunity gap, beginning at the earliest and most critical stages of education, and growing future citizens who are informed and involved. Lastly, I support Sarah, the current 4th grader whose idea this was originally--I am happy to add my voice behind this student who is taking the lead!
